After eight years at 5,000 to 8,000 miles per my old Sella Italia was showing signs of wear. After much searching, I was exited to finally find and order one. It is thicker and heavier then my old one. I put it on my gravel bike and it is fine but I still need one like my original for my road bike.
The saddle is much more comfortable than my previous saddle. Seems to have eliminated a irritation I was getting from the old saddle. Highly recommend it and the price was good.
The Selle Italia Man Flow Gel saddle is very comfortable. I am 61 and have cycled my whole life. Recently, I have tried four saddles and found them either too stiff or too narrow. I'm 5'8, 195 pounds, and I don't even think about saddle pain anymore. I highly recommend this saddle. It's a little heavier than some saddles, but I didn't even feel the difference from my lighter saddles.
I have three road bikes. My latest one came with a seat that was unusable to me. I need a certain minimum width so that my hips are supported. This seat fits the bill for me. The cutout is advertised for relieving pressure. I thought of it more as a weight reduction design. An added plus for me is that the cutout allowed me to have greater access to screws that adjust the seat position in relation to my seatpost. Good looking seat too!
I use this for my road bike and long training rides.I went through 3 saddles and my sit bones were killing me, sends I bought name brand expensive saddles after researching them.They didn't work.Sit bones are very happy now.Ahhh.
Age 55, haven't ridden since I was a teenager, needed a low-impact workout to save aging knees and discs (have had surgery on both) so I got a deal on a Cannondale Quick 4 which is all I really need, the OEM seat is a killer, though. Read a few reviews and got this saddle- very comfortable right from the start! Plus, no numbness after moderate rides which is all I'm capable of at this point. Oh, I'm 6'1, 210 and could stand to lose the ten.
Age76, retired farmer, 6', 220 lbs. bought this saddle for my specialized roubaix. I have ridden approximately 400 miles using this saddle and am very happy with the comfort. I usually ride 30 miles at a time.
