To coincide with the 105th running of the Ronde van Vlaanderen, Selle Italia created a limited-edition saddle with input from the 2020 race winner, Alpecin-Fenix's Mathieu van der Poel. The Dutchman has been using these saddles for the past five years as part of a sponsorship agreement between Selle Italia and Alpecin-Fenix and has taken quite a liking to one model in particular - the Flite Boost Kit Carbonio Superflow, a saddle he uses for both cyclo-cross and road racing. The Flite Boost model pictured here is unique in that it combines the lightweight chassis and performance attributes we've come to expect from the best road bike saddles with design cues and personal details as provided by Mathieu van der Poel
