In its shape, Selle San Marco’s Aspide Carbon FX saddle is a direct descendant of the Aspide Superleggera, their high-end super-light racing perch. As it’s a little further down the scale, it makes a small compromise in terms of weight. But at just 132g, this is still a very light piece of kit.
The extra 20g over the Superleggera is mainly down to slightly more generous padding (foam, with gel inserts) – something that’ll likely suit the amateur racers it’s aimed at. Weight is kept down by the carbon fibre rails and slimline shape. The saddle is covered with breathable Micro Feel fabric. It’s available now for £149.99, via Madison in the UK.
