Road.cc reviewed the Fleet SLR, claiming the new road saddle from Giant is “comfortable, supportive and priced well against its competitors.” Editors gave it a near perfect 4.5-star ranking (out of 5).
Tester Liam Cahill tested the Fleet SLR, a short-nose racing saddle with modern shaping and an ergonomic cutout, in a variety of road riding conditions from flat roads to climbs.
“Shortened saddles are becoming a common sight on road race bikes, as they can really help with aggressive positions,” Cahill wrote. “The Fleet SLR features a central cutout, a wide, short nose, carbon rails and contouring to help you stay comfy when riding head down.”
Looking at some of the key design elements and features, he wrote: “The carbon rails give decent room for adjustment, and road buzz is pretty well damped. At the back, you also get the necessary threaded hole for Giant’s UniClip accessories.”
Summing it up, road.cc claimed: “Giant’s Fleet SLR saddle is great for getting low at the font of the bike while staying comfortable at the back. The large central cutout and stubby design are very well shaped, and the price is good too.”
