Comfort, style, and performance.
The San Marco Aspide Racing saddle is a cycling institution in itself. Look closely, and you'll see them at your local shop road rides, at the singletrack trailhead, on the weekend cyclocross circuit, and ridden by the pros to the tops of some of the highest climbs in France. And not without good reason, either. The new San Marco Aspide Racing speaks to a wide range of riders all seeking the same level of performance, minimal weight, sublime comfort, and of course the all-important striking appearance. The Aspide delivers on all fronts, so it's no wonder it has remained a perennial favorite in the San Marco stable for so long.
Utilizing a zonal blend of multi-density EVA padding, San Marco's unique Biodynamic saddle construction and classic 'wave' profile carefully follows your natural pelvis movements during pedaling. This provides optimal support to your seat bones and perineal region without interfering with your abductor muscles on each stroke.
The carbon fiber-reinforced shell is designed to lower overall weight while flexing slightly upon pressure to help reduce the harshness of the road or trail. Composite alloy Xslite rails round out the package, while still remaining lightweight. The San Marco Aspide Racing is available in White or Black MicroFeel covers.
- C.F.R.P. carbon reinforced plastic shell flexes in key areas for unrestricted movement and pedaling efficiency while offering excellent support
- Xsilite rails are lighter than titanium due to a mix of silicon, titanium, and carbon to balance strength and weight
- MicroFeel cover is breathable, hard wearing, and features an anti-skid effect for positive grip to the saddle
- Lightweight BioFoam padding allows unrestricted movement when pedaling while still delivering excellent support

I have been riding an Aspide, in one form or another, on my road bikes for about 9 years.
Thisnis a minimal saddle that doesnt dispense with comfort. It isnt a flat piece of plastic wrapped in saran wrap.
San Marco manages to keep the suppleness of form in a minimalist package.
The saddle has just the right amount of padding, making it ok to ride on longer outings, not just a few laps down at the crit.
As well, The Aspide has surprising depth allowing a good deall of length tomget outnon the nose for extended speed efforts and a enough of a lip to leverage your buttocks on seated, longer climbs. My white saddle has remained quite clean and naturally white with regular attention, using baby wipes, too.
