Selle SMP designs its saddles with an overall objective of reducing pressure on the perineum and eliminating the pressing of neurovascular structures while riding. It's achieved through the Italian manufacturer's innovative designs and countless hours of research and development, with the Pro Carbon Rail Saddle being a favorite amongst those who like to rack up the miles. The Pro Carbon is best suited for cyclists with medium-wide to wide pelvises who shop for pant waist sizes in the 34 to 39-inch range, as it features a longer and wider shell than other models in this range. It bears the distinct curvature and support features inherent to this group of saddles, with the characteristic "beak" shaped nose designed to provide a flat base while sitting, without excessive pressure on the genital area. 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 region. This shape also helps reduce overall pressure on the coccyx while riding over rough surfaces. The saddle's foam elastomer padding gets wrapped in soft leather over its durable nylon/carbon composite shell that rides on carbon fiber rails, ensuring a secure perch that'll hold up both road and mountain applications. The Selle SMP Pro Carbon is available in one size, 278 x 148mm, and comes in the color Black. The Pro is handmade in Italy and has a claimed weight of 290 grams.

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.
