    Older Selle Italia Flite TT & Carbonio information

    I am looking at Selle Italia Flite TT saddle and the wording TT trouble. I am using the the saddle for road race bike and not sure the TT on the saddle means for time trial bike? Can someone help to clearify the Selle Italia Flite TT saddle and/or is this saddle as good as the original Flite?

    Also come across an old Selle Italia Flite Carbonio (carbon/Ti rail) version? any one has used this saddle and appreciate some information on the saddle as well.

    If you are comparing the Carbonio to the original Flite, the shape may be similar, but the the Carbonio has much less padding. It was not comfortable enough for me, so I stopped using it.

    The Flite TT is a older flite with less padding and uses Buffalo leather.

    very nice!

    The Flite carbino is similar but lighter, regular leather and some CF weave patch showing.

    I have both.

    Dirt Boy, by chance, have you ever compared the SLR vs SLR XP?
