Bicycle Saddles Examined and Explained

Selle SMP Carbon Lite Saddle

The Selle SMP Carbon Lite saddle is a padding-free, larger version of Carbon line. It has been designed for serious cyclists who are looking for a comfortable seat that is just a touch wider. All of the patented features developed by the company have been included in the saddle’s design and they are explained more fully below. This is a saddle that has not had any padding added to it and so it will be most suited to the more experienced cyclist who is looking for a high performance saddle.

The name of the saddle might lead to a little confusion because it sounds as though it should be lighter than the Carbon. This, however, is not the case. The Carbon Lite weighs 175 grams compared to the 165 grams of the Full Carbon. The saddle is wider and longer than the original Carbon to give that crucial extra surface area.

The patented features of the Carbon Lite include a completely free central channel to relieve pressure on the site bones. The shape of the saddle is also a design that has been developed by SMP and the distinctive eagle-beak nose and swept up raised rear ensure an aerodynamic look that also adds to the comfort of the saddle. It is a saddle that is recommended for riders with a medium-wide pelvis.

The saddle differs to the Full Carbon model in that the rails are constructed of AISI 304 stainless steel tubes. This makes the saddle just a little heavier but also lowers the cost of the saddle too.
