An Environmentally Sustainable Saddle with Premium Comfort to Spare
The Selle Italia Model X Green Comfort Plus Superflow Saddle marks another step forward for Selle Italia in terms of both production technology and brand values. A saddle with low environmental impact and eco-sustainability that at the same time guarantees comfort and performance.
The advantage of Superflow design combined with Flex Control technology improves resistance over time and offers premium level comfort and stability on the saddle. It features a recessed central cutout to reduce perineal pressure and ample padding with Total Gel, ensuring a compliant ride in all conditions. The Model X Green Comfort+ Superflow is particularly great for e-bikes which tend toward increased saddle time and longer seated efforts.

I am sure this would be a good saddle for some, definitely a bit more cush than the regular Model X.
I personally am struggling to find a comfortable saddle. Not sure what has changed with my body over the past decade that I can't tolerate many saddles anymore (have trialed 9 so far). My current saddles are fine, but not great after about 1.5h. This one is no better, a little worse. So this is not necessarily a bad saddle, just not for me.
I do recommend following BTDs recommendation to use electrical tape on the rails when trialing a saddle. I also put some on my saddle clamp for extra protection.
I have only ridden on it about 200 miles so far on road and rails-trails rides but so far it has proven to be very comfortable. I have ridden it on rides as long as 40 miles and I wasn't sore, nor did I have any numbness. I am older so I'm not the fastest, most aggressive guy out there but I'm not slow by any means and this saddle suits my style just fine.
Very comfortable saddle. Fornthe price point it cannot be be beat. Seems to rank with higher tier saddles. Be aware the material is really grippy, so might benbetter suited for riding mostly seated. If you tend to change seat position often, may not be ideal.
I bought this for my bike connected to my Wahoo Kickr trainer as the saddle I use for outdoor riding is just too hard. The extra cushion was noticeable right away, preventing the hot spots that were caused by my normal saddle (another Selle Italia model). I prefer a shorter/wider platform and this one would have been better (for me anyway) if it came in a 155mm vs the 145.
