Monica Savio of Selle Royal said: “Travel is not just seeing new lands, it’s having new perspectives and point of views. It’s a state of mind, a matter of curiosity, spirit and enthusiasm. This is exactly what happens when you choose your bike: this collection is for people with a desire to explore the world. The interchangeable saddle means riders are not restricted to one design, they are free to change as they travel.”

She goes on to say “Working with these illustrators and designers has given us a chance to create a highly technological and practical product that is tailored to cyclists with specific interests, in this case art and travel.”
