About Selle Italia
Selle Italia first began their incredible journey into the cycling industry back in 1897 in Corsico, just outside of Milan, Italy, at a time when automobiles were too expensive for most people and bicycles were the major method of transportation. Beginning with the Bigolin family in the 19th century, the company has always focused on innovation and performance, combined with state of the art materials and designs. This focused diligence and dedication to producing only the best of the best has resulted in Selle Italia remaining one of the leaders in the industry worldwide over the years.
Through continual research and testing, they have become and remain experts in the field, constantly improving and enhancing their technology and their products. With a Selle Italia saddle, you can rest assured that you will be cycling not only in style, but in the most comfortable and efficient way possible.
