My last SLR was a Kit Carbonio which didn't fare too well in an accident so a replacement was required. Although this is an SLR by name it's not a less expensive version of the Kit it's a different saddle. You may be able to see from the pics the nose has more coverage at the front of the rails and it has a longer nose and a wider rear. It's still firm, supportive, light and racy but it doesn't have the classic timeless shape of the Carbonio. The clamping area of the rails is also shorter than the Carbonio, something to bear in mind if your saddle needs to go right back. In use it's pretty much what you might expect from this sort of saddle. It's firm but supportive and although it's somewhat obtrusive to begin with it breaks in quite quickly. It makes a great platform for pushing hard but if you're looking for something to sit and twiddle on this is not the saddle for you.
