The Lite 209 Carbon Rail Saddle like all of Selle SMP's saddles goes about adding comfort to your ride by addressing excessive pressure at the perineum region as it uses the Italian brand's innovative shaping to keep you comfortable supported and pressure-free while racing training or simply riding. The Lite 209 Carbon is best suited for cyclists with average-width pelvises who's pant waist size is in the 32 to 37-inch range and those that favor a significant amount of padding. At the nose there's the characteristic "beak" shape designed to provide a flat base while sitting without excessive pressure on soft tissue. SMP's pronounced central channel is also incorporated which further reduces pressure on the pudendal nerve and surrounding soft tissue. The back of the saddle is raised for an enhanced seated pedaling position where body weight is divided between the rear and lower part of the ischial tuberosity or sit bone region. This shape also helps reduce overall pressure on the tailbone while riding over rough surfaces. The saddle's foam elastomer padding gets wrapped in soft hard-wearing leather and covers a nylon/carbon composite shell that rides on lightweight and strong carbon fiber rails ensuring a secure perch that'll hold up to road tri and mountain applications. The Selle SMP Lite 209 Carbon is available in one size 273 x 139mm comes in the color Black is handmade in Italy and has a claimed weight of 280 grams.
