Selle Italia Turbo Re-Issue Review Aug 12, 2009

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
