The MaxFlite Gel Flow uses a suspension that gives all-over cushioning without any moving mechanical parts. The front of the saddle features a combination of "Active Suspension" and "shock absorber". Inserting the rail into a "wing" located on each side creates suspension in the rear. The Gel Flow comes with extra padding and "Specific Soft Tissue Relief" design that reduces pressure in the soft tissue area.

El sillín es confortable pero no todo lo que esperaba de él. Quizás el precio sea algo excesivo

wont say its like sitting on air ,but close . my thighs where catching on other saddles and as it says your soft tissue does feel the preasure .with this saddle thats all gone and i improved my riding position raising my saddle at least 5mm(i thought i allready had it bang on) doesnt sound much but it made a lot of difference . if you every feel a bit saddle sore then invest in on of these .

been out on a few medium wet and cold winter rides 70-80k since I got it and it is comfort on the backside, had a cheap xbik selle before, that was on long rides uncomfortable ? but it wore out.
the max has not as much gel as I thought it would be, but still well designed there is a good flex in it for a big 114kg guy like me and vibrations are lower or feel lower.
sometimes it feels like im sitting on nothing ? sounds wrong but thats the way it feels suppose everyone is different when it coms to saddles im a 34 inch waist 32 leg 114kg and 6ft this is perfect for me as in the better weather months I would be doing well over 100k and need comfort and this saddle I feel I can rely on.

Rated 5 out of 5 by mammbo Great saddle and very comfortable with the built in suspension but a little on the heavy side for those who take their racing serious.
Saddles are a very personnel choice so it is hard to pick one from reading a review alone. They also need some bedding in before you can tell if it is the right one to fit your body shape which can be an expensive business.
I am currently a 40 year old 5ft 10, 11stone male coming from a mountain bike /running background taking on a bit if road riding. The saddle that came with my road bike although very light was also very uncomfortable so the search began. The next step was a selle flite saddle which I have on all my mountain bikes, a bit better, but also found it hard going on 100psi with uneven roads. You get a lot of damping with the mtb tyres.
I wasn't happy at first about compromising weight for comfort but felt this was the way I had to go after struggling with two other saddles.
Straight away it felt a lot more comfortable and it just kept getting better the more I rode with it. A year on with an etape du tour under my belt I jump on the bike and it just feels right.
After a year the saddle is still in one piece although a little bit of wear is starting to show on the top where I've been sitting but still plenty of miles left in it yet.
I would recommend this saddle for longer rides/sportives and training but because of the weight those who take racing seriously might want to look at something a bit lighter for racing with.

Брал 2 таких седла - себе и товарищу. Я худой, товарищ полная противоположность. Тем не менее седло ему тоже очень нравится. Прошлый сезон откатал с таким седлом на хардтейле. Первые 2-3 поездки было не привычно и приходилось в пути несколько раз регулировать его положение. Потом всё лето не знал бед с ним. Прорезь в центре не пережимает сосуды и циркуляция крови происходит нормально, а это очень важно для мужского организма. Встроенная амортизация (ход 10-15мм) порадовала смягчением ударов от наездов на камни, корни деревьев и т.п. На следующий сезон собрал 2-подвес с этим же седлом. Будет двойная задняя подвеска. Думаю что это наиболее оптимальное сочетание цена/качество.

Привыкал к этому седлу после wtb долго оно мягкое и немного амортизирует, ест мелкие кочки, , но это не то супер седло , почему тут столько отзывов незнаю))

Rated 5 out of 5 by Emile Better where it matters.
After I suffered from prostatitis at the end of our last cycling season, I was ready to give up this wonderful sport. However the combination of this saddle and some decent bib shorts seems to go a very long way to improve comfort levels on the bike - both due to less vibrations through the seat and less pressure on the perineum. It is still early days but the improvement in comfort on the bike is very noticeable.

Hola, te comento que en nuestra página web lo tenemos como Cuero, en este caso este modelo deb ser de cuero. Puede ser que tengamos un modelo distinto que el que se describe en la página web de Selle Italia.
