Selle Italia SLR Friction Free Saddle

If you're the cyclist who notices you consistently can't get through a full season without the inner thighs of your bib shorts or sides of your saddle wearing prematurely, then you may be part of the 40% of riders that Selle Italia claims aren't getting enough thigh clearance from a traditional saddle. The company created its popular SLR racing saddle in a Friction Free version, which was designed with a much narrower width from the wings to the tip of the nose than traditional saddles. This shape aims to lessen chafing, cut down on pilling shorts, and improve efficiency for a select group of riders. The SLR Friction Free is built on lightweight titanium rails and is covered with Selle Italia's easy-to-clean Fibra-Tek, which resists wear from the elements over long training miles. Weighing in at a claimed 185g, the saddle's sleek design fits right in among Selle's minimalist SLR racing saddles, even if it is slightly heavier than some of its carbon-railed siblings. The saddle's narrow 131mm width won't suit everyone, but for riders with narrow hips it offers a solution that could save you valuable energy while pedaling.

Arches National Park is known for its' remarkable natural red sandstone arches. With over 2,000 catalogued arches that range in size from a three-foot opening, to Landscape Arch which measures 306 feet from base to base, the park offers the largest concentration of natural arches in the world.
October's Animal
Most commonly found in the tundra of Rocky Mountain National Park, the pika is a close relative of the rabbits and hares, with two upper incisors on each side of the jaw, one behind the other. Being rock-gray in color, pikas are seldom seen until their shrill, metallic call reveals their presence.
