SELLE SAN MARCO “TEAM EDITION”: RIDE ON THE SAME SADDLES AS MAJOR CYCLING CHAMPIONS

In the 2018 season, Selle San Marco has partnered with some of the most important men and women’s teams on the international cycling scene. These include 4 UCI Professional formations: Italian Androni Giocattoli Sidermec, Irish Aqua Blue Sport, French Cofidis and Belgian team Wanty Groupe Gobert. To give their customers a chance to ride on the same saddles as the pros, Selle San Marco has decided to customize some models from their collection with personalized graphics inspired by the colours of the team that uses them. So Selle San Marco customers will be able to buy the ASPIDE TEAM EDITION model, the MANTRA TEAM EDITION model and the SHORTFIT TEAM EDITION model. All come in Gold, Pink, Red and White versions.

ASPIDE RACING NARROW TEAM EDITION is the perfect saddle both from the aesthetic and technological point of view. The long central cutout (Open -Fit) guarantees all-day comfort and support on the whole length of the saddle. This feature improves the blood flow preventing numbness and provides relief from pressure on the perineum. Recommended for individuals with averagely high pelvic rotation. This saddle features the side profile of the seating surface with a central depression of more than 5 mm that is similar to a curved line. For this reason, it is listed as Waved saddle. Recommended for individuals with both flat back (retroverted pelvis) and accentuated lumbar arch (anteverted pelvis).

MANTRA RACING NARROW TEAM EDITION model is Open-Fit, the hole has been redesigned according to the concept of our New Ergonomy to reach a perfect balance between support and the relief zone. The big central cutout channel ensures an extreme comfort and support. The new ergonomy and the new design makes the Mantra an aggressive saddle, with a great design in line with the most technologically advanced frames. Recommended for individuals with averagely high pelvic rotation. This saddle features the side profile of the seating surface with a central depression of less than 5 mm that is similar to a straight line. For this reason, it is listed as Flat saddle. Recommended for individuals with accentuated lumbar arch (anteverted pelvis).

The SHORTFIT RACING WIDE TEAM EDITION saddle was created to meet the needs of the most demanding cyclists who, for certain types of training sessions or rides, rotate their bust a lot moving to a position close to the handlebars. The special ergonomic shape of this new saddle features reduced length and ensures proper support in the generous rear section and optimum pressure distribution in the front section. The long central cutout (Open -Fit) guarantees all-day comfort and support on the whole length of the saddle. This feature improves the blood flow preventing numbness and provides relief from pressure on the perineum. Recommended for individuals with averagely high pelvic rotation and for women bikers. Shortfit features the side profile of the seating surface with a central depression of more than 5 mm that is similar to a curved line. For this reason, it is listed as Waved saddle. Recommended for individuals with both flat back (retroverted pelvis) and accentuated lumbar arch (anteverted pelvis).

The Team Edition models are available through Selle San Marco dealers.
