"The Novus is an extremely comfortable saddle. I was a big fan of the revamped Novus with its kinked downward nose, flared padded heel and well-shaped full-length channel.
Selle Italia has compacted that shape, keeping the width and padding at the rear and the slender nose, which has the advantage of staying out of the way when you’re down in the drops and powering along. What you get is a saddle that’s plushly padded with no chance of friction as your thighs turn with the pedal strokes. The short shape is best suited to more aggressive riding positions, so if race bikes are your thing this is the way to go.
The generous channel means no unwelcome pressure, so you get a padded saddle that offers superb freedom of movement yet bags of support, and the short shape means you don’t shift around.
I reckon this short saddle, with the long name, is the current king of its genre."
