To each his own "SellOTTO"
Sometimes appearances are deceiving and in this case, the "SellOTTO", has really amazed us!
From an initial skepticism - given the unusual shape we found ourselves in front of - after only a few pedalling we began to realize that the SellOTTO was not only the result of a courageous experimentation, but an absolutely original and curious market news. Built entirely in Italy - conceived by an engineer and a doctor - SellOTTO has a particular "EIGHT" shape that makes it unique. (BICITECH - Fabio Boiocchi - 24/05/2017)
Bicycle, cystitis and pelvic problems - The man and the bike - The woman and the bike - There are special saddles on the market without noses, which avoid compression of these delicate areas.

Test of SellOttO, the Italian noseless - Personal conclusions
Very personal indeed. I shouldn't write, but since I was one of those cyclists who had to give up his passion, for a long time, because of health problems linked to the impossibility to pedal on a traditional saddle, I would like to express some other concepts. Actually Sellotto mounted on my Gravel convinced me and I liked it maybe after the first 30 minutes I cycled on it, among the noseless ones I tried it was the most comfortable and intuitive one.

Sellotto: an innovative bicycle saddle
The manufacturers warn that a certain adaptation period of up to four weeks is necessary, but in my case the confidence was almost instantaneous, so much so that I took it on the road for this summer's 'alpe adria' tour with 'girolibero' (around 300 km). Some people complain of a downward slide, but in my opinion it depends on the saddle adjustment, which is certainly delicate. Certainly those who prefer routes that are not too hard, and long cycle-tour routes will find an indisputable benefit. (FIAB-ECF-Bicitalia - Maurizio Regis - November 2020)
