This one is unique and already has a great deal of notoriety. It is made in Italy with the objective of reducing weight to it's barest minimum, while retaining the clever styling that Italians are famous for. The Flite begins with a molded nylon shell. It doesn't have the anatomic depressions the Turbo's have, but that would add more foam padding weight. The nylon base is designed to flex (in a sense imitating more padding) and therefore affords a degree of comfort that most saddles don't have. Over the nylon shell, molded high density foam padding is glued.
The padding is really only on the upper "seat" area and extends two thirds the distance from the tail to the nose of the saddle. Selle has trimmed the sides exposing the seat clamp area. This is wise, on a saddle this narrow, the clamp would continually rub against the inner bottom lip and destroy the seat. There is a leather top glued around the foam and very careful trim work on the underside leaving a beautifully finished saddle. The rails are made of Ti with a return curve at the front. The return curve is 1 3/4" inches from the tip. This saddle is available in Black, Grey, Tan, or White, and a production model of the Flite weighs 203.5 grams.
