Road Cycling - Selle Italia Saddle
Bikeforums.net is a forum about nothing but bikes. Our community can help you find information about hard-to-find and localized information like bicycle tours, specialties like where in your area to have your recumbent bike serviced, or what are the best bicycle tires and seats for the activities you use your bike for.
Just got my Selle Italia Max Flite Genuine Gel about a week ago and I must say that it is the most comfortable road saddle that I have ever been on. I would go numb after an hour on my O2 and I also tried the Specialize Body Comp but that did not work out either for me. Check out Selle web sight
http://www.selleitalia.com I ordered a Pro link Genuine Gel for my mountain bike. I'll have to let you know how that one is.
My Prolink came in today and yes it's another winner. The guys at the bike shop (D&Q Sports in Cherry Hill NJ) all marveled at it, it was the 1st one they had seen. It's very soft (spongey feeling) and rides as if your on a cloud. All and all I'm VERY impressed with Selle Italia quality along with the service and support of it's dealers.
It is a nice seat. Si has finally gotten it right. You have to cut the shell out for the gel or any material to work nice.
Now if the other companies and models can follow. Again, not all riders may like this feel. I do not. I prefer the old trusty Turbomatic.

Selle Italia are good saddles. My setup is a reverse of yours. On my mountain bike I am using the Max Flite, and on my road bike I am using the Signo Genuine Gel. I chose these saddle widths based on the position(s) on the bike.
