Innovation has always been at the heart of Selle Italia’s philosophy, because innovation is synonymous with progress, and if we add to this the attention to the environment, this explains the birth of Greentech production technology, a forward-looking approach to bicycle saddle construction.

A production process that totally eliminates the use of polluting elements, such as glues and synthetic resins, and that does not involve waste because the same scraps and waste are reintroduced into the production cycle. And, since Selle Italia technology supports the “Future Rides Green” claim, the end result is a saddle that, at the end of its life cycle, will allow its components to be recycled.

A durable and recyclable saddle, made by mechanical assembly and without polluting substances

It is on the basis of the Greentech production process that in 2021 the line of Model X saddles will see the light of day, products that immediately respond to the demands and tastes of the market. This is why Selle Italia is renewing the offer by launching the new Model X Leaf which completes the line with a saddle with attractive and very ecological graphics: the leaf pattern, printed directly inside the transparent cover, underlines the green saddle approach.

The Model X Leaf saddle is produced by the mechanical assembly of three components, without the use of pollutants, in full respect of Greentech production technology. The rail is made of Fec alloy, particularly resistant and flexible, and the shape of the saddle is wavy for a more stable position, intended for people with a retroverted pelvis. Finally, the new Model X Leaf has an antibacterial treatment integrated into the padding.

The automated and extremely fast process of the Model X Leaf significantly reduces energy consumption and also benefits the price.

The entire production process of the saddle, patented by the company from Treviso, is at zero km because it involves companies located within a radius of 15 kilometers around its headquarters: an additional element of reduction of CO2 emissions.
