Selle Italia Monolink Team Edition Saddle

Background: by default I use the Bontrager Affinity RXL saddle on my Trek Madone 6.9 SSL and all my mountain bikes, because it’s light, reasonably priced, and never causes me discomfort, even after 8+ hours in the saddle.

But in looking for ways to cut weight for extreme climbing, the saddle naturally comes up as one area to cut out a few ounces, which is the only way one can eventually save 1/2 pound or 1 pound once one has superlight wheels— a few ounces at a time.

See Selle Italia Monolink Team Edition saddle at Amazon.

Weight

Weights as weighed on gram-accurate scale— not specs.

Selle Italia: 135g
Bontrager Affinity RXL: 203g (medium width)

As biking parts go, 65 grams = 0.15 pounds is very significant.

To get a 14.8 pound bike to get down to 14.1 pounds, there are only so many ways to get there without compromising handling or durability.

Features
