Selle San Marco Concor Protek saddle

BikeRadar verdict

0.4 out of 5 stars

"Slimline looks and feathery weight, but comfortable with it"

Thursday, February 2, 2012 4.00pm By

The Concor shape has been around for a long time. It’s best known as a road saddle but the Protek adds abrasion-resistant silicone trim to the corners and tail to make it a bit more mountain bike friendly.

Underneath, a carbon-reinforced nylon shell and Selle’s titanium/carbon/silicon alloy rails contribute to a feathery sub-200g weight. But despite the Concor’s spectacularly low weight, it’s not totally minimalist. 

There’s detectable padding for a start, and while the Concor’s definitely more suited to experienced behinds, it’s perfectly fine for long rides. 

The shape is fairly flat along the top but with a usefully dropped nose and kicked-up tail. The Microfeel cover offers just the right amount of grip, allowing easy shifts in position without feeling skatey.
