Selle Italia launches nubuck collection of performance saddles

Selle Italia has launched a Nubuck collection, featuring three of its best known profiles of saddles.

The special edition will be available on the Italian brand’s SLR, Flite, and Novus models.

A spokesperson for Selle Italia said: “The stunning and eye-catching material makes these saddles some of the most unique on the market. The nubuck material tells the story of your time on your bike as its appearance changes the more you ride it.

“Complete the look by pairing your saddle from the Nubuck Collection with our Smootape Classica for a classic finish.”
