Selle Italia Saddles - Italian Bicycle Saddles from Then to Now

Selle Italia has a long history and tradition in the manufacture of bicycle saddles. In 1897, Selle Italia was founded in Corsico, a tranquil town near Milan in Italy. At that time, bicycle saddles for transport bikes were coming off the production line at Selle Italia. The car was taking on a larger and more important position in society. Selle Italia sensed this change and developed one bicycle saddle after another starting in the 1970s. The focus was on developing saddles for sporting use, such as on road bikes. To this day, Selle Italia puts all its knowledge into the innovation and manufacture of bicycle saddles. Every Selle Italia saddle goes through countless processes before it is shipped. This includes the application of scientific methods and testing procedures.

Selle Italia - The Right Saddle for Every Bike

Gradually, Selle Italia has established various road bike saddle models on the market. For this reason, the brand is mainly represented in road cycling. The idea of innovation and constant development led to bicycle saddles in many different categories. Today, Selle Italia offers bicycle saddles for every area, including gravel saddles, triathlon saddles, as well as saddles for the daily commute to work.
