The Selle Italia Mythos is a successor of the Italia Flite, with added weight reductions from the careful removal of a strip of the middle of the saddle tail area. The shell is made of molded nylon, with a section 20mm wide at the rear tapering to 10mm wide after a 120mm length taken from the middle. The shell is covered with very high density, molded foam rubber that covers the top and most of the shell. A smooth Black leather is sewn to cover squarely the edge of the missing center section, with a nice and delicate rolled edge. The sewn leather piece is then exquisitely cemented to the padding with 3/8" of the cover lapping up under the underside of the shell where it is carefully glued down. There is a molded plastic housing with the rear rail receivers, which also holds in place the leather cover at the underside of the tail section. This housing is held in place with glue and two screws. A molded plastic shroud also covers the tip of the saddle. Held in place with glue and a screw this shroud prevents the excess wear that often occurs at the saddle tip.
This saddle is in used condition and has some cosmetic defects.
