No saddle is legendary as it, the Concor. Revolution of the cycling in the ‘80s, it took the greatest riders to the victories in the World Championships, Grand Tour and Classic races, sharing the triumph of champions like Hinault, Saronni, Armstrong and Bettini. No saddle became a myth as the Concor with a world success.
Now the legend goes on. Concor. An icon. Now much lighter. San Marco revamps the Concor, presenting the evolution of the historical model. The new saddle keeps all the skills of the previous versions (the Concor Light and the Concor Supercorsa), but it considerably gains lightness, thanks to the use of innovative materials.
Biofoam: A challenge: managing to obtain better comfort in the saddles with gel inserts, lower weight and lasting greater resistance. BioFoam padding is the San Marco solution. The Biodynamic structure that follows the movements of the pelvis during pedalling, guarantees comfort, reduced weight, lasting resistance and ideal support. The “closed cells” surface assures the water repellency of the padding.
C.F.R.P. Carbon Fiber Reinforced Plastic: Shell with variable carbon percentage according to the needs or performance required for the saddle. The lengthened carbon fibre reinforces the shell to obtain a very strong, flexible and light material. This mix of materials enables the shell to keep its shape unchanged through years.
Xsilite: Lighter and stronger than titanium, Xsilite was born as material of research for the pro riders saddles. It has a high percentage of silicon (here’s the name) together with particles of titanium and carbon. The result is a material with high static toughness, strong like titanium but at the same time lighter.
Microfeel: This cover is breathable and hard wearing. This material also offers better adherence to the padding, emphasizing the ergonomic shapes of the saddle. It is less deformable and lighter than traditional materials. The particular surface assures an anti-skid effect with an extraordinary grip on the saddle. Its composition respects the standards of biocompatibility.

Rated 5 out of 5 I love this saddle.
Perfectly matches my Wilier Cento 1 SR. Beautifully finished. I find it very comfortable. I have ridden Selle San Marco for 30 years. The first 25 were on the classic Concor then I switched to the Aspide to save a little weight. I am glad I am on a Concor again. I find it a bit more comfortable.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Paul62 Great Value Saddle
Only just received this saddle today, but upon first ride I was very impressed. I have been using a Selle Italia SL, which has been very comfortable, but being totally flat and slightly slippy material I found myself slipping about a bit, and squeaking when moving.
The first difference I noticed with this saddle is I feel much more firmly in place with the raised back end, and the material feels very grippy. I felt more confident on downhill bends, and I also noticed that I seemed to be going uphill one gear higher than normal. How much of this is in my mind, is debatable, but on initial appearances I am delighted with this saddle.
