Selle Italia Model X Leaf is a sustainable saddle with new graphics inspired by nature, stemming from the Greentech process. It is created through an eco-sustainable production process that avoids the use of polluting substances thanks to patented Greentech technology. The new Model X Leaf saddle features eye-catching graphics based on a green leaf pattern.
Sella Italia’s philosophy has always been firmly focused on innovation because innovating means moving forwards which, with the addition of respect for the environment, is what led to Greentech production technology, a forward-thinking approach to creating bike saddles.
A production process that totally eliminates the use of any kind of polluting elements, such as glues and synthetic resins, with zero waste because any discarded material or waste is put back into the production cycle. And since the claim of Selle Italia technology is “Future Rides Green”, the end result is a saddle with components that can be recycled at the end of its life cycle.
Model X Leaf: the sustainable, recyclable saddle with mechanical assembly and free from pollutants
In 2021, the Greentech production cycle resulted in the Model X line of saddles which immediately fulfilled market demands and trends. This is why Selle Italia has renewed the offer by launching the new Model X Leaf which complements the line with an ultra-eco-friendly saddle featuring eye-catching graphics: the leaf pattern, printed directly inside the transparent cover, highlights the saddle’s green approach.
The Model X Leaf saddle is produced through the mechanical assembly of three components, thus eliminating the use of polluting substances in full respect of Greentech production technology.
The rail of the saddle is made of ultra-strong and flexible FeC Alloy while the saddle features a waved shape for a more stable position for riders with posterior pelvic tilt. Lastly, the new Model X Leaf features an anti-bacterial treatment integrated into the padding.
The ultra-fast, automated, energy-saving production process means the retail price of the Model X Leaf saddle is also competitive.
The entire saddle production process, patented by the Italian company, is a zero-miles process because it involves companies that are all within a 15-kilometer radius of its headquarters, thus helping to further reduce CO2 emissions.
