My original lasted 20 years of XC and DH. Patched up the knocks over the years but finally wore through. Tried 3 or 4 modern saddles in quest to replace including a 2017 Selle Italia gel but nothing matched the feel, stability and comfort of the original Flite so decided to go back to the Flite. Matching it against the old saddle it is EXACTLY the same in shape and size and construction and after two rides my rear end thanks me!! Only wish I didn't waste money on trying others. Simply irreplaceable and as comfortably classic as ever!
Still ergonomic, and comfortable after all these years. This is a classic, dependable, durable saddle for your weekend ride or commuter. I especially appreciate this saddle for my two '90s era bicycles. And always for a great price at PBK. Recommended.
I have been using these saddles since 1990 when they came out. Currently, I have three of these on my bikes. Considering I have narrow sit bones the saddlefitsme perfectly. I am not surprised Selle Italia continues to manufacture them. They still show the same quality as the original and the hold up well. Last year I finally replaced my 15 year old saddle. I just hope they keep on making them.
An excellent retro style saddle with strong titanium rails and leather cover
It is as advertised: almost an exact duplicate of the Flite saddle that I had been using since 1997. Only the texture of the leather has changed - less glossy but just as comfortable. The price was reasonable; delivery was prompt.
It's still the best saddle, non of the new saddles on the market are as comfortable and long lasting
Excellent narrow hip/sit bone saddle with comfortable round contour. I have been riding with this saddle since the 1990's and have it on all my bikes as well as a spare that I take when traveling to use on rental bikes.
To find the same vintage saddle today in a brand new condition is truly a joy! Now the vintage bicycle project can really get going. It's beautifully shaped and in my opinion, as having the best balance between lightness and comfort. At 230g it's not the lightest around compared to the ones you get these days, but it's the saddle that started it all. There is a slight difference though, the new titanium rail is more horizontal at its base compared to the older saddle's rail which is more sloping. This changes some settings on your seat post. Simplistic and minimalist, this must be one of the best cycling saddles ever made. Selle Italia's continued production of this evergreen saddle is testament to it's enduring appeal.
Just spent 3 hours on this saddle and I feel I could go for 3 more. The saddle fits well and feels good. I have always been impressed with Selle Italia products.
Simply put, this Selle Italia Flite 1990 Bicycle Saddle is the best saddle I have ever had. This is the saddle I have on all six of my bikes. I have tried many other saddles over the years but none have reached the level of comfort I want when riding 100 plus miles a day.
