    SLR Kit Carbonio Flow Vs. 2008 Selle Italia SLR Flow

    Was wondering if anyone knew if there was a difference in padding in the two saddles. All the descriptions, seem to say that the padding is the same, just the carbon rails is the difference? Searching for a new saddle and I have narrowed it down to these two. Anyone comment on the comfort of the two of these.

    I have the Slr Gel flow 07 or 08 not sure....Great ride ,for sure comfortable, when I compare it to my Prologo which came with the bike. After 10 min I was sore on the Prologo..no such pain on the SLR.
    The problem..I had with mine..(which is on the way back the manufacturer ) is that a thin layer of leather was peeling of one side of it after 4 rides.
    That seem unusual..even though the saddle is very delicate.

    Weight more than anything else. Padding is the same.

    Can you provide a link to the 2008 Selle Italia SLR Flow? I wanted a non-gel "flow" SLR and the only one I found while shopping around was the one with carbon rails. I'm not crazy about the rails, but love the saddle.

    The Kit Carbonio is awesome. I'm running one on my road bike and it's as comfortable as my Selle Transam on my MTB. Great saddle!
