If you’ve been reading my blog for any amount of time, you probably know that the Selle Italia Turbo is my favorite saddle. I’ve been through a ton and got tired of destroying vintage classics. Since that realization, I’ve been riding different knock-offs that never quite meet the same standard. Just recently, Selle Italia re-issued the Turbo. I am stoked.
After receiving mine in the mail, I’m equally as excited. Finally. The re-issue is nearly identical to the older model. I can’t find any noticeable differences int he silhouette. The only major difference is that the new Turbo is Vegan-friendly. Which may or may not be your thing…
Unlike the re-issue of the Concor, the re-issued Turbo has impeccable craft. The ride is the same and the general feel of the saddle is identical. I cannot wait to ride this baby all weekend.
Retail should be around $60 – $70
