Extraordinary efficiency, peerless performance & an alluring design. The new frontier of the Selle-Italia MTB saddle bears the name XLR. The XLR has been specifically designed for the off-road universe. It is the outcome of relentless product research, improved even further by the joint contributions of athletes, designers and other sector experts.
The XLR stands out for the specific slant of its nose which slopes forward and makes for greater freedom in the saddle whilst riding. The shock absorber built into the composite-laminated carbon-fibre rail is a piece of state-of-the-art technology set to start a revolution. It does away with all vibrations coming up from the road surface. This special technology borrows its features from the F1 world. It is better on the inside too with the double-density padding that gives it a defined structure: a softer tip makes for greater ease of movement and better comfort levels even on an uphill ride; on the other hand, the highdensity rear provides all the stability you need whilst pedalling. Last but not least, the innovative antiabrasion bumpers will give you peerless protection if you come off your bike.
The shell consists of Nylon12 and Carbon fibre, making for superlative performance standards and wonderful weightlessness: 130 grammes – this is as lightweight as it gets. This particular version bespeaks the sheer elegance of hand-upholstered products and the curated charm so typical of items leaving the Selle-Italia laboratories.
The technical microfiber cover material guarantees a strong and durable lifetime at a very low weight.
Double padding with variable density ensures a comfortable sit in every condition.
Carbo Keramic Rail
The carbon rail with a ceramic coating in 7x9 mm diameter protects the seat post clamping area against point stress and scratches.
Absorption system between the shell and the rail that highly reduces road shocks and vibrations.
Reinforced edges are used to protect the side of the saddle cover against impacts.
The technology of the idmatch system was developed to guarantee you absolute comfort, well-being and performance while practising the sport of cycling. With sophisticated instruments and software, Selle Italia has developed solutions that perfectly harmonise your body shape and the equipment you use.
idmatch is the result of scientific research carried out in collaboration with Selle Italia in Ergoview's laboratories. It helps all cyclists to find the perfectly fitting saddle shape and to achieve the best position on the bike.
idmatch helps you to find sizes, adaptations and equipment that are suitable for your body according to a scientific concept.
