The Selle Royal Respiro Men's Soft Athletic Saddle are from a line of the world’s coolest saddles with Microtex covers and built in ventilation! Incorporating a wider ventilation channel, Respiro is a range of saddles anatomically designed to fulfill the different needs. In warm weather, when leaving a bike in the sun or riding for a long period of time a saddle will increase in temperature. Rising above the rider’s skin temperature, the saddle creates an unpleasant feeling of perspiration and discomfort. Eventually this can cause pain. Respiro (meaning ‘breathe’ in Italian) avoids this by keeping the saddle up to 25° C cooler thanks to the cool Microtex cover and the ventilation channel. The Selle Royal Respiro Men's Soft Athletic Saddle has an anatomic design for an Athletic Riding position and features the Cool Cover, Ventilation Channel, Royal Gel, Royal Vacuum Light production, and an Integrated Clip System for optional lighting and saddle bag accessories.
