Every second counts in a competitive triathlon, therefore good aerodynamics are essential for the cycling discipline. With this in mind during the development process, Selle Italia now presents a unique triathlon saddle called Optima Teknologika - a 150 gram light model with in-built bottle-holder, suitable for 500/750 ml bottles, in minimalist design. From an aerodynamic, design and engineering point of view, a dream, harmonizing superbly with contemporary carbon frames. The saddle rail is made of carbon fibre as well. Special gel padding offers a comfortable ride for long distances.
