This Selle San Marco Mantra Saddle with Xsilite Rails is no longer available although you may find similar or newer versions below:
The Mantra is designed to offer the greatest relief from Perennial pressure of any saddle on the market.
The arrow head shaped cut-out is designed to be the longest and widest cut-out in the traditional-saddle-biz. In fact, it is so big that it starts just behind the nose and stretches all the way to the back, with the widest point in the middle measuring an astounding 30mm.
The usable area is huge and provides lots of positions where the cut-out is effective which can be an issue with smaller cut-outs. The Mantra has a carbon fibre reinforced shell (C.F.R.P.) wrapped in San Marco's synthetic leather which is both breathable and durable.
The shell is mated to 'Xsilite' rails which were created specifically for professional racers and are much lighter and stronger than titanium due to a high percentage of silicon mixed with particles of titanium and carbon.
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.

Every year we've added new patents and solutions to our collection, saddles designed to meet every need of every cyclist.”
