Selle SMP was born after WWII, during the ‘bike gold ages’.
The founder, Martino Schiavon, was a young artisan producing bike saddles in a small attic in Padova.
In all these years there was no outsorcing for Selle SMP , even though italian economical crisis . The factory decided to push more on quality and innovation rather than low labor costs.
In sixty years Selle SMP has become the benchmark for high quality ergonomical saddles, and still, each saddle is hand made in Veneto with the same passion they used to.
