Rear "wing-style" suspension system allows saddle flex to smooth the ride without addtitional weight or bulk. Elastomer-laminated nylon base and perforated leather cover with gel inserts ensure top comfort for long, comfortable rides.

Light. Pro's need to be at least 20 characters long, I have nothing else to say, although, under the saddle looks like it should be a good seat
Hard saddle compared to other good saddles, not sure about how much 'gel' is used. No movement on the rails, the stop markers give you about half a centimetre of movement. The smooth surface of my saddle is no good for tri's if you're a 'jump on the saddle running' becuase you'll slip off the other end with no markings on the leather..
Had good experiences with Selle Italia saddles but not this one, noticeable after one ride. Buy either a better Selle Italia saddle or a no name brand for the same price rather than this one
No I would not recommend it to a friend

Well made as you would expect for a $70 saddle from Selle Italia, Light and strong. Classic Italian styling, Gel is welcome and needed by most that are not Lance Armstrong wannabes!
The stitching can be irritating even through padded shorts, even though they claim gel is used I think I have gotten more gel from a peice of Freshen Up gum!
Everyone is built different, sitbones are also, some wider, others more angled, for the $$,,rather BIG $$$ I recommend try before you buy, just because it did not earn a permanent job on my bike does not mean it will not on yours, it is quality, but so is Cannondale and I don't like them either!
