It’s the newest arrival at Selle Italia: X-Bow is dedicated to those who ride in off-road environments, from mountain biking to gravel, who are looking for a saddle that offers comfort and stability, achieved thanks to the new rail fixing technique patented by Selle Italia, making it even more comfortable. Available with rail in TI316 or Fec Alloy and in fill and superflow versions.

Selle Italia launches the new X-Bow, a product developed for all those looking for excellent stability and support on all types of off-road terrain. Dedicated to the mountain biking, enduro, ebike, and gravel disciplines, X-Bow is the result of specific studies that led Selle Italia to patent an innovative rail fixing technique offering a series of new advantages. In the X-Bow, the rail is in fact fixed in the rearmost part of the saddle, almost on the edge, thus freeing the part of the body on which the ischial bones and perineal areas press, in turn limiting the pressure exerted by these zones on the saddle.

In addition to the characteristics described above, the X-Bow rail also allows greater regulation of the saddle insofar as the new rail positioning technique allows a larger area on which to fix the saddle post. This means greater flexibility for the biker’s fit. The X-Bow also helps further cushion vibrations caused by rough terrain and the stresses typical of off-road disciplines, thanks to the presence of Shock-Absorbers between the rail and body.

The rail is also the protagonist of the saddle logo design, clearly indicating how the importance of this new product is entirely contained in this part of the saddle.

The X-Bow is a short, neutrally shaped saddle with the rear part slightly raised for greater stability, and features a Soft-Tek covering, which is particularly soft. It is available in two versions, one with TI316 rail and one with Fec Alloy rail. Both models, each with different graphics, will be supplied only with a drilled body, but with the option for padding with or without the Superflow hole, and with a choice of size S or L.
