A happy bottom leads to a great ride experience. Just enough cushion in the right place. Sit Bones are good for me. A Saddle is a very personal thing, this saddle fits me perfect. To find the right saddle, you need to get measured at the bike shop and then try the right saddle size. Not all saddles are the same, what works for me may not work for you. So, find the right saddle for yourself.
After riding on a saddle like this, I broke the bank and bought one. After two 100 plus mile rides and several shorter ones the saddle has proven it self a good purchase.
This saddle doesn't need breaking in and it is comfortable right out of the box. Recommended by a friend and I liked it so well I bought another saddle just like it for my older bike. Just enough padding to be comfortable but not too soft so other parts and chafe. Best bike saddle I've used and I've tried quite a few. Highly recommend it especially with elastomers underneath.
This is the first time using a Selle Italia Max Flite Gel Flow. I have been a Kontact saddle man for many years and was very satisfied with the ride. As I have aged to 70 I was looking for a little more comfort without loosing the performance and a little wider seat platform. I have been riding on it all week doing some 17 to 25 mile interval rides and wasn't quit sold yet. Last night I did a forty group ride with the young guys and was completely overwhelmed with the comfort without loosing the performance. Will be be doing a 65 tomorrow and expect no less. Looks awesome, rides great, performs even better.
I had a 50 mile benefit ride and decided I needed a new saddle at the last moment. It arrived two days prior to the ride; bolted it on and did the ride. This bike saddle proved to be very comfortable.
I had an earlier version of this saddle which I rode for about 20,000 miles. I decided to try this newer version, when the old one needed replacement. Most of my riders are in the 40 mile range, with an occasional 50 to 60 mile ride. I find this to be very comfortable, and to really improve the ride on my aluminum bike. I recommend this saddle highly.
Got the Max Flite Gel because my 4 year old Specialized Avatar was giving my 48 year old backside a hard time. Highly recommend this seat, beautifully made, fairly light, extremely comfortable. Feels like you are sitting on it, not in it. Stiff gel padding and slippery, easy to move on it. I ride with my wife 3-4 times a week and she can be slower on the climbs, every seat I have used has made it's presence known when I am grinding in the saddle uphill. Not this one, don't even notice it. I am 195lbs and a recreational rider for the most part. Great fit for me.
Purchased this to replace an older model. It is still very comfortable and well made.
I don't think I can say anything more that this is probably the sixth Selle I have owned and it is the only one that works well for distance, speed, or just a casual ride. I love it!
Great saddle. Very nice construction, and real leather covering, makes this a solid investment in your comfort. The "wings" roll down somewhat quickly, so make sure your body measurements dictate a saddle more around 140mm wide rather than the 145-147mm width they measure this at and it should be a great fit for you. Most people need a wider saddle than the typical 130-135mm saddles a lot of bikes come with these days, and this one will give you many hours of comfort.
I already knew this was a great saddle. I have a white one on my other road bike. It was the perfect selection at a great price!
I used to ride the minimalist saddles, and pay the high price for bibs to improve cushioning. I'm now convinced that a good saddle is the key to a good day on the bike. This Selle Italia Max Flite Gel Flow Bicycle Saddle does it best. I've ridden prolink on my other bike and found this to be the best in comparison to it. But clearly the Flite has it on looks.
Very happy with my new saddle , the best I ever had. Good quality. I would highly recommend this saddle to anybody.
Absolutely everything I had hoped for. The saddle is light weight but padded enough to rice a century on. If you are thinking about this one, get it you won't be sorry.
