SLR Boost: the myth evolves with the lightest ever short saddle

Home

The SLR, Selle Italia’s most iconic saddle, has been a reference point as far as style, performance, comfort and lightness go. It supported champions such as Contador and Ballan and has now been renewed. It is capable of overcoming the most advanced frontiers in terms of lightness and performance. Selle Italia has further reduced the length and weight of the SLR, a product that has made history.

SLR Boost: the myth evolves with the lightest ever short saddle

“We wanted excellence”, Giuseppe Bigolin, President and Owner of Selle Italia declares. “Lightness, performance and innovation to guarantee the sensations that have accompanied great champions of the past. A saddle capable of following and anticipating market trends.”

The new SLR Boost is the lightest short saddle currently on the market and, with a compact and attractive line, reinforces the image of a model that represents the top in terms of technology and performance.

Unique features for a dreamy saddle

Thanks to the highest quality technology and materials, at 122 grams the SLR Boost is unsurpassed for its lightness from any other short-fit saddle available. In addition, the unmistakable elegance and a length of almost 25 mm less than the traditional version of the SLR (248 mm against 275 mm), qualify the new SLR Boost for the title of leader of the new compartment of short saddles.

A refined aesthetic, combined with unparalleled comfort thanks to its compact structure, the slight rise on the back and the micro-perforated cover that help to easily find and maintain the ideal sitting position, ensure proper support of the ischial bones and prevent any problems coming from crushing.

Redesigned tip

As if that were not enough, the SLR Boost has a redesigned tip that allows you to further increase the comfort in the thrust phase and to take full advantage of the features of the saddle. Moreover, the adjustments become easier thanks to a glossy black line applied to the lower part of the body that indicates the position of the BRP (Biomechanical Reference Point). This is the point where the saddle reaches the width of 70 mm and from where to measure the parameters useful for the right positioning.

The SLR Boost is available in 4 versions: Kit Carbonio, TI316, TM with manganese rail and the SLR Boost Lady, with TI316 rail and more comfortable padding, designed to meet the needs of our female clients, thanks to a larger gel padding. Together with Superflow technology, this ensures a unique pedaling comfort.
