About Performance Saddles
Performance saddles are narrower than the models designed for shorter ride comfort. They're intended for riders who have a committed riding style with weight on hands and feet so they're narrower and lighter. High tech padding materials and flexible body designs keep your pressure points comfortable and lightweight chassis components keep the weight down. Most have some kind of ergonomic design to reduce pressure on nerves and allow unrestriced blood flow to your sensitive areas. Womens models have a wider design to suit their naturally wider pelvis. Saddle widths vary across the ranges from narrow (upto 130mm), medium (upto 138mm) to wide (upto 146mm). Narrower saddles are the popular choice for longer distance riders as they do not cause the hips to be placed in an unnatural position. Wider saddles will often feel comfortable initially due to their greater surface area but then progressively decrease in comfort as the miles increase, the correct choice of saddle is a case of getting the balance between initial comfort and overall comfort.

Magazine reviews for Selle Italia Flite Gel Flow Saddle with Oval Rails
Review from Bikeradar
The latest incarnation of the Flite saddle might look a little different to the original, but it still combines a reasonably light weight with huge comfort, which is what has made it so popular over more than a decade.
The slender body and narrow nose provide ample support without being too bulky, and there's enough length to allow you to shift your position when you need to ease aching muscles.
A little ﬂex in the shell takes the sting out of potholes, while elastomers at the ends of the rails provide more absorption. The real star, though, is the silicone gel used in the upper – it moulds to your body to provide cushioning from vibration.
We found the anatomical cutout really comfy, although, if you're not a fan of holey saddles, more traditional designs are available.
Titanium alloy rails help keep the weight down – ours was 244g, which might not be ultra-light, but for this level of comfort it's impressive.
An updated classic that still provides a ton of comfort
