The Selle San Marco Concor is a saddle design that's been around for a long time. As such, it has a loyal following among those who've fallen in love with (or become addicted to) it's curvy shape. Selle San Marco claims that no words can express the feeling of riding on their Concor Saddle.
The shape is aptly described as curvaceous. Of all the saddles with a "hammock" design that encourages riders to settle into the sweet spot, this one reigns supreme. Fuzzy memories serve to remind us that the Concor is best after serious consideration to its pitch, that is, the up/down tilt of the nose of the saddle. Most prefer it below the elevation of the tail. In effect, this levels the saddle out, yet leaves the rear of the saddle as a bit of a ramp. We always felt it served well to push against on long, seated grinders in the hills.
This Selle San Marco Concor Saddle has a Red leather topsheet. Its dimensions are 265mm x 140mm.

It's Still A Classic

It's not flashy, no fancy paint or decals, just the same old classic shape that I love. Had one of those on my first roadie years ago and just has to get one for the new ride. The curvy shape works very well for me. The back edge rises up just slightly and gives you something to lean back on during hill climbs. The classic lines are really eye catching, at least to me anyways! I went with the white saddle to finish off the bike with a nice classy look. It takes a little while to break in the leather to your backside but after a few hundred miles it is just like your favorite old leather chair.
Back in the day this was the saddle to have on your racing machine!!! I have tried all the new saddles and NONE are as comfortable as the CONCORD!!! And that's what I put on my new BMC Race Master SLX01 full Campy Chorus with Campy ZONDAS G3 wheels. It may weigh a little more, But it is still as comfy as ever for those long rides(150-190 per day)
Couldnt love it more
Full disclosure: i believe San Marco produces the best saddles in the world!
I use this saddle on 2 of my bikes...one road bike and my fixed gear. It serves the same purpose on both. It is very comfortable in that it acts like an actual saddle and not a flexy, flat board, like many others. The nose is comfortable to move up on when you really get moving. The lipmon the tail is the perfect leverage point to scoot back against on any seated climb. The colors are great and dont run or anything drastic like that. In fact, they gain a cool patina over time of use.
