Selle Italia Turbomatic Saddle

The Selle Italia Turbomatic saddle has been brought back the saddle that was wildly popular when it was first released in 1980. The saddle features round manganese rails which makes it more compatible to the seat posts that have been used in more recent times, unlike the oval carbon rails of the Team Edition. This is a hardy performer of a saddle that has been fitted with gel inserts to protect the sit bones and is suitable for anyone who prefers a little more surface area on their saddles and is not afraid of a little extra weight.

The saddle is short and compact which is a change from the longer and narrower saddles that have become preferred. It is broad at the back of the saddle with deep sides and the nose is padded for the manoeuvrability that is required over different terrains.

The shell of the Turbomatic is more arched than other road saddles such as the range of SLR saddles. A key feature of the saddles is the suspension system that is designed by Selle Italia. This consists of small elastomers that sit between the ends of the carbon rails and the shell and absorb shock while also providing a slight amount of flex. It makes it a far smoother saddle to ride on over uneven surfaces.

The saddle cover is made from a material called Lorica which is a durable material that is resistant to abrasions and is designed to provide lasting comfort.
