Reissue of the most popular saddle ever made. Unlike other saddle reissues, these Turbo saddles are almost identical to the original design without the dreaded modern upgrades. Like the original, it comes in a suede leather finish that wears quickly into smooth leather after use.
First introduced in 1980, the Selle Italia Turbo ruled the 80's and early 90's peloton. True, some pros opted for a Rolls, Regal or Concor, but no saddle to this day was ever as popular as the Turbo during it's reign. The saddle has slight anatomical contours and dense but somewhat generous padding. If you're not counting grams, it's a great choice. The Turbo has truly stood up to the test of time and the last of the great pre-Flite era saddles.
