Rated 3 out of 5 by Anonymous Good overall; durability a bit of a concern
Good saddle overall having ridden on it in all weathers for about 1 year. It is very light and provides good support. The only issue is the durability of the leather where your legs rub against the nose of the saddle. Already it is wearing through to the white leather underneath, so not sure how long it will last before it is completely worn through to the saddle base. They could design the saddle to be more durable around the rubbing points (perhaps kevlar inserts?) to improve durability.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Anonymous Brilliant saddle. I used another saddle of a famous brand, tried to change different angles and tried to move back and fourth, both outdoors and indoors. always started to sore after 20-30 minutes. Perhaps was not for me. This selle Italia slr xp is nice. Put it and tried it, really fits to me.
