All of the saddles in the Selle SMP range feature a striking shape that's responsible for the comfort that many cyclists aren't able to find in other saddles. These innovative shapes and pressure-relieving profiles leave many cyclists with that "eureka" moment and they wish they had found the saddle sooner.

The Selle SMP Nymber comes in at 267mm long and 139mm wide and in the colors Black, Yellow Fluo, and White. It is handmade in Italy a...
