Selle SMPPro Saddle(Return to Product Page)Add your own review
The Selle SMP Pro is a work of art that will keep your blood flowing where it counts the most. Preserving your family legacy may or may not be important to you, but I like to keep my options open. Just make sure you check out SMP's site and get a saddle that's appropriate for you. I'm big-boned (aka Clydesdale) at 6' 210 and the PRO is perfect for me. It has a wide profile and feels substantial...not like a whale on a tic tac. Fit is everything, you have to get it right. The leather cover and stitching are true Italian craftsmanship. Yes! It is pricey! But you get what you pay for. I fully expect this saddle to keep me cranking on and off the bike for years.
I have 3 bikes and this saddle is on everyone of them, comfort is what I was looking for and boy did I find it with the Selle SMP Pro. 51 years old and still enjoying the ride.
I love this seat and have had most of my friends switch to it. I ride the pro that is 143mm wide because of my sit bones. They make different models and widths. Measure your sit bones and get the model for you. They recommend 500 miles on break in.
Was not having a great time with my stock seat (ProLogo Scratch Pro). Was not able to ride for long periods without discomfort due to the seats 134mm width. Researched and demo'd a few seats including Fizik Aliante. It was better but not quite what I was looking for. Made the choice on the Selle SMP Pro and was amazed at the difference. The width is perfect for me, the cut out is well appreciated, and the styling is very cool. I couldn't be happier. Great saddle!
I was having upper back and neck pains, common to long riding cyclists. My first ride on this saddle I noticed a 90% reduction on upper neck and upper back soreness. The feel of the saddle is outstanding. Prior criticisms I'd read of this saddle such as not be able to steer the bike w your legs because of the point down nose of the saddle are unfounded in my experience. It's simply an outstandingly engineered product and I appreciate you offering the product for sale.
I've logged about 1000 miles on this seat so far and the boys and I really like it. Great on short and long rides and is very comfortable. I would highly recommend this seat if your privates take a nap during a long ride. Very high quality materials. When I got clipped by a truck a couple of months ago the seat came thru in perfect condition. Wish my leg had.
