Hi,

I'm considering one of these instead of my usual SLR Kit Carbonio, has anyone got a photo of their bike with one so I can get a better idea what they look like fitted.

Thanks

Dougan

The guys that stole 6000 of these saddles last week can surely help you out..

Hard to find pictures of the saddle when I bought it. I have the version before the one you posted.

How about these two?

The first is their Superleggera and the second is a Carbon FX. The Superleggera has definitely been replaced / updated and I think the same has just happened to the FX.

Isn't the SLR a flat saddle? Flat never worked for me, but this Aspide shape has been roses.

Thanks, that Cad10 looks fast.

The saddle has recently been updated and I was hoping to get some pics of the new model. Can't be many owners yet.
It only weighs 121g so is definitely a WW option. I'm looking for something very low profile so I can cut as little as possible of my new Cipollini RB1000 seatmast.
I'm trying to get hold of an original shape SLR Carbonio but this is proving difficult.

Watch eBay soon for deals in Sella San Marcos saddles from Taiwan.

Wonder if those are the new open model for 2014 stolen? I really like that new one TS posted.

Crazy light and well designed and made.

Concor carbon fx is also nice and fairly light @ 135gr.

Mate, that Concor is a sharp looking saddle! Really nice looking bit of kit.
Anyone got any feedback on the feel? Has it got any padding (one of my issues with the old Aspide was the bruising on my sit bones for a few weeks at the start)
The old Aspide was like sitting on a stone at first! :unbelievable:

Does look nice, so now the choice is:

Selle Italia Kit carbonio
Selle San Marco Aspide Carbon Open FX
Selle San Marco Concor Carbon FX

all about the same price and weight
:noidea:

I have the 2012 model Concor Carbon FX and it's the best saddle I've ever ridden. Everyone who has hopped on my bike uses an SLR on their rig, and loves the slightly raised tail on my saddle. It has just the right amount of padding.

My 2012 was advertised as being 160 grams, so if they indeed made the saddle lighter, I hope the level of padding is unchanged.

I think the Concor will look better. Photoshop anyone?

I think you could be right, the Concor looks very similar to the SLR Carbonio which is shown in this photo. This saddle is now on my training bike, I could use it but its been well used and showing signs of wear.
