Crashed my commuting bike and broke the saddle. I use a selle italia flite flow on both my sunday racer and winter commute only it's difficult to locate a second hand flite flow L2 fit so was wondering if anyone has experience in a useful equivalent/alternative and as it's for my winter commute astethics are not that important I just don't feel like shelling out for a new flite!!


  • I have an SLR Kit Carbonio on my nice bike and decided to replace a worn, cheap Prologo on my all-year bike, so thought about another SLR. Couldn't get one, so tried the C2 Gel, in the same L2 sizing. Seems to be pretty good so far, considering the price difference....
    All the gear, but no idea...
  • Just got a new saddle for my winter bike - selle italia max flit gel flow - 41% off at wiggle. I really like it, it's quite firm when you first sit on it, but after a few hours I've barely noticed it! Obviously saddles are very personal things, what works for one etc, but IMO this was a great buy and I'll probably be getting for my other bikes next year.

    I have a brand new in box flite flow L2 in the cupboard.
    Its a warranty replacement after the rails broke on a previous one.
  • Echo what Silly Old Hector said as I've got the same 2 saddles.

    C2 is good choice, maybe not quite as nice as the Flite but perfectly ok for me for 4+ hours rides.

    Spend the difference on other things !
