Has Selle Italia Flite changed in 10 yrs?

Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

Have Selle Italia Flite from about 1997. Is the one available today much different? Mine has a "dimpled" surface.

replaced a '92 flite with an '05 flite last year. the only difference is that they have a little oval disc in the back with the logo. otherwise it's the same.

none that i can think of.

btw the dimples must have been a limited edition, or something to that effect. flites have ALWAYS been on smooth leather.
