Our Drive To The Top Is From Our Champions. Just like any champion cyclist can’t win without his teammates, Selle Italia can not make the world’s best saddles without drawing on our long tradition and extensive experience which have always driven to make great saddles.
Eddy “the Cannibal” Merckx, Francesco “The Sheriff” Moser, Miguel “Big Mig” Indurain, the unforgettable Marco “The Pirate” Pantani and Ivan “The Terrible” Basso are just a few some of the great champions of cycling champions who have taken the Selle Italia team, through victories and epic challenges to the highest pinnacles in our beloved sport of cycling.
Each and every Selle Italia saddles is the fruit of constant research and development programs. Selle Italia use detailed scientific studies and millimeter after millimeter, material after material, Selle Italia work closely with the top doctors and biomechanics scientists to turn out saddles which come one step closer to perfection, which fit any anatomy, and which can meet any possible need of the cyclist.
Today more than ever, research and development comes first for Selle Italia. In the past, saddles were produced first and their use was determined later. Today Selle Italia never creates just any product. Selle Italia makes careful research and lab tests, then extensive real-life testing with riders. That’s how perfect saddles are born, and that is why Selle Italia saddles optimize comfort and performance for any rider.
