In any given race around the world, you're sure to find a healthy portion of the riders sporting Selle Italia's iconic SLR saddle. Lightweight, sleek, and comfortable, Selle Italia has taken that famous composite carbon fiber shell and mounted it atop hollow manganese rails to make the SLR TM a high-performance saddle that doesn't come with the premium price of titanium or carbon rails. EVA foam-padding under a Fibratek synthetic still means superior comfort and a friction-free feel for the flexible rider, giving you every reason to throw an SLR on every bike in your stable.

My butt likes SLR saddles, and this one is no exception
Los Angeles, CA
My butt likes the SLR shape, and I have various models of SLR (and SLS) saddles on various bikes. The SLS was a model introduced about 5 years ago, to bring the classic shape of the SLR to consumers at a more affordable price. It appears to have been discontinued, but the SLR TM appears to be essentially the same saddle, with perhaps a slight upgrade to the shell material and a higher price tag. It's perfect for my steel trainingrough road bike where weight is not critical. I just did three days (180 miles) of riding on some poorly maintained roads and a bit of gravel, and never once thought about the saddle.
