The goal of lightweight construction and comfort are fully achieved in the SLR XP. Just 180g. The SLR is the most innovative saddle of recent years, with its lightweight design and anatomic contours. The SLR uses a carbon composite base with Full-grain breathable leather covering while the padding used in the main body is the perfect fit, a special self modeling foam that adapts to the body shape.

Excellent saddle if you're looking for a light, flat, racing specific saddle.
Finally a saddle that I can use for road racing and time trialling now my previous favourite saddle, the Rolls Due, is no longer made. Although still minimalistic the extra padding over the standard SLR together with the virtually flat shape means I am comfortable using it for 10 mile TTs and 100+ mile club runs.
A fairly light weight saddle and nicely made and finished. Just enough padding to stay comfy on a 30-50 mile ride (road) but over 50 miles started to get a bit less comfy. I think this is due to the specific shape of this saddle, being raised along the centre, that doesn't suit me as well as saddles with a relief channel. Still recommended though, just maybe not for longer rides!
I know saddles are a personal thing but this is definitely my favorite saddle. Not the lightest SLR but that little bit of extra padding means I can easily ride for hours in comfort.
It is indeed very light-weight and comfortable saddle. I recommend this product!
Great first impressions of this saddle. Very early days yet but comfortable from the off. Haven't done any rides over 1.5 hours yet but am reasonably confident that this will be fine for longer days in the saddle and seems to suit my proportions. Light, well made (as you would expect from Selle Italia) and looks great. Need to mention delivery which was outstandingly efficient - next day delivery to a village location was amazing !
Although weighing at 192 grammes rather than the claimed 180 it is still a light seat. Having done a couple of 20mile+ rides on it so far it has proven to be comfy & supportive seat.
Light, quality product, seems pretty comfy at moment only done two rides on it for a total of 5 hours, no problems and would buy again especially at the sale price...another great product from Merlin why shop else where !!!
Great saddle very comfortable at a good price
new design with excellent technical characteristics, , light, good quality of the material, and comfortable shape.
