well i have never seen that before.

saddles make no sense, big comfy sofa saddles cut your arse to shreds, while virtual razors blades are the comfiest things ever,
this is flite reminiscent so may be ok

Those saddles aint retro nor are the proper x-lite of old, how do i know cos I have one quite comfy if you like that kind of shape seat, v similar to nukeproof (infact i would say rebranded nukeproof). OEM on some of vitus?? Bikes from crc last year.

Got a Flite TT on my Explosif, also have an SLR which is even lighter, both of which are incredibly comfy...

...though that may be more to do with my extra inbuilt padding these days because my original Flite BiTD soon got the heave-ho!

Its just a Velo SLR-copy with X-Lite branding. Nothing new, or old for that matter; like you'd see on half the roadbikes in any given shop nowadays.

Without the appropriate padding, the cosmetics of a bicycle saddle is of little relevance to myself as whatever shape or style, every saddle i've ever sat on has become a pain in the arse. Literally.
