What makes us special?

Two things. First of all, nobody makes leather saddles the way we do. Traditionally, leather saddles are soaked in water, cold-molded at room temperature to the proper shape, and then baked in an oven. This style of saddle making produces a very hard leather top that can take years to break in. Our saddles are hot-molded dry. No water. This produces a much more pliable leather top that conforms more quickly to your unique shape. Hot dry molding alone is an impressive innovation but we didn't stop there. Our patented Flex-Fly slot has inverted rear wings that allow your sit bones to push the leather out of the way as you ride. This technology which is unique to Selle Anatomica reduces perineal pressure, sit bone pain, and saddle sores.

November 13, 2014

The Selle Anatomica X is quite comfortable, and has been from the get-go. I have had zero perineal issues while riding it these several weeks, and no blood flow issues...
...This seat simply doesn’t function like other saddles. Effectively, the patented slot creates a 2-part saddle, with each side working like a hammock to support your sit bones individually and allow each side to flex independently, and provide the front-to-back support for the rest of your soft tissue while taking pressure off the perineal area.

2014 X Series

Our best selling model, 4130 chromoly rails and a  dual laminate design support the full grain leather top. The specific shape of our patented slot's inverted rear wings allows the saddle to move with you. We call it Flex-Fly. It reduces perineal pressure, sit bone pain, and saddle sores. This saddle has no break in period. It feels good from day one. A second full laminate helps to increase the longevity of the saddle and still provides the right amount of elasticity under your sit bones. This is the saddle for high mileage riders (more than 100 mi/week) or those between 160 and 250 pounds.
