The Novus Boost is evolving to cater for the world of Gravel Bikes.
The Novus Boost Gravel Tech is part of the new range of saddles dedicated to the multi-faceted world of Gravel Bikes. Its compact shape and innovative rounded point facilitate complete adjustability, while the variable density double padding in light gel ensures comfortable seating even on long distances.
Meanwhile, the classic Superflow cut-out guarantees minimum pressure on the perineum area. What makes the Novus Boost Gravel Tech different is the addition of the Reflective Inserts in the rear of the saddle: a specific process makes every movement reflective and visible in low-visibility conditions and thus improves safety.

Like all saddles, each one, and its relationship with any individual backside is totally subjective. I've been through a fair handful of saddles for the gravel bike, ultimately landing here with the Selle Novus Boost Gravel Tech. I've not been on any centuries or close yet, but have done a few 30-40 mile rides along with plenty of shorter adventures. It's comfortable, and on the longer rides I've done, have gone a long way in helping me eliminate that dreaded perineal numbness. Whether that holds true on really long rides is kinda beyond what I was hoping for anyway, so it's helped out in one major area I was hoping this would help with. The padding isn't overdone, but with a chamois, it does the trick. The seat is light enough and balances form and function really well. My only semi hangup is how short it is. Great if getting rowdy and not wanting the seat to hang up, but it does provide a slightly more limited surface area to move around on when wanting to shift to get comfortable on long climbs, or the like. That said, it has been easy to overlook considering all else it brings to my table. Big fan.
