Selle Italia Flite white!

I started cycling in the early 90’s I was 13 when I first became obsessed with road cycling. My first “real” racing bike had a Selle Italia flite in crisp white leather. Selle italia stopped making the flite saddle in white quite some time ago, but I was majorly pleased to find State Bicycle co. Had done a special run of the flite in white!!!! It does not have the titanium rails like the original but I am not going to complain because the white leather flite saddle looks and feels phenomenal!

Selle Italia - Flite 1990 Saddle (Black/White) (Ships via USA)

Customize your build

The most popular saddle of the 90's was the Selle Italia Flite Titanium for several reasons. First, It was light, with a weight in the low 200 gram range. Second, many riders found the flatter shape more supportive and a better fit for aggressive riding. Third, the dense thin padding was more comfortable than the much heavier and over-padded saddles they were currently using. The padding is firm, but supportive and didn't promote heat or friction build-up. The titanium rails offered flex and passive suspension. In addition to comfort and low weight, it featured an attractive new look- low profile and svelte compared to other saddles of the day.

Unfortunately, in 2006-07 Selle Italia 'updated' the design and stopped producing this original Flite Ti saddle. While some riders liked the new Flite design many preferred the aesthetics, shape and comfort of the original. Many riders were stunned and sought them out far and wide. Selle Italia heard the desires of their long-term fans, and the original 1990 Flite was re-released again.
