Overlooked this for 20 years5
I should have started using this Selle Italia Flite 1990 Bicycle Saddle 20 years ago. The Selle Itialia rep had come around to promote IDMatch, so I submitted my data and this one came out on the short list. The list got shorter when I saw the new Flite Team Edition sporting truncated side skirts, and I wanted side skirts to reduce chafing back there, so I pulled the trigger for the 1990. A little wider than the Arione I'd been using, but long, firm, and almost as light, it's exactly what I needed. And the cover is real leather!Report this review
The classic all-arounder is back for the old-school cyclists who demand only the best.5
It's always good to know that companies listen to their customers. With the re-release of this original Flite saddle, Selle Italia will make a lot of cyclists happy, and I'm one of them. Comfortable, light, and great looking, this older design is as good as any out there today.Report this review
3 road bikes, 3 original Flites. That's all I need to say.5
I have 3 road bikes, my newest has my 22 year old Fllite on it. I bought one of the newer Flites, didn't like it all that much. I recently found out the original is available.
I bought a second original Flite a couple of months ago, and am now am ordering a third.
I've used this model saddle for 10 years, the reproduction is almost identical to the original. I now have one on each of my bikes. It's a firm ride but very comfortable once setup.Report this review
Best saddle for everything5
I have a whole bunch of the original ones from the 90s and I like how they are firm but buckles in so its very comfortable for racing road mtb or just cruising around. My saddle, Ive been riding it for years and it is beat up but I still swear by it.Report this review
a classic, suits many bike types and will last a long long time5
I've had this saddle for 7 seasons now. It went from a high-end Trek to an entry-level aluminum bike to a cross-country bike and always satisfied me. Also tried the newer Flite versions (Flite Kit Carbonio and Flite Team Edition), and the "old model" feels just as good, maybe a little bit wider.Report this review
