    Flite Tekno Flow Saddle

    The Flite Tekno Flow Saddle is an updated take on Selle Italia's classic silhouette. It incorporates 30% carbon fiber in its shell, Selle Italia's CarboKeramic rails, and some generous padding for a platform that cushions bumps and absorbs road noise without bouncing you down the road as you pedal. It's also got a comically low claimed weight of just 125g, 45g less than the next lightest model in the Flite line.

    • An updated take on Selle's classic saddles
    • 30% carbon in shell elevates stiffness, sheds weight
    • CarboKeramic rails keep things light and reliable
    • Generous padding absorbs jarring road chatter, cushions sit bones
    • Comically low weight scales in at just 125g

    Not a fan

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: True to size

    I find this saddle uncomfortable and unforgiving. I've had Fizik and Bontrager saddles with similar shape and profile and have been fine. Since I started using this saddle, my riding bones are always sore. If I can't adapt to it soon, I'm going to have to try something else.

    Another drawback of the saddle is that the sides are exposed carbon fiber, so you have to be very careful about resting the bike against anything. Very poor design.
