The Selle Super Turbo has some enhancements over the Turbo series saddles. It's still made in Italy, and it still has a nylon shell as the base for the seat. The shell has anatomic depressions molded into it to accept more padding at the pelvic contact points and there is a 1/2" tall depression that is an 1/8" deep which runs around the front three inches the seat. Over the shell is high density foam padding which is molded to the contour of the shell and tapers to a feather edge at the lower parts of the sides. Leather is then stretched and glued over the foam and shell, rolled under the bottom and glued underneath the bottom lip. A label is applied on the leather in the front band of depression saying "Super Turbo".
Over this label and surrounding the entire bottom of the nose area, is a cast clear plastic shroud. This plastic shroud holds the leather firmly and makes it more difficult for stress to separate the leather at the nose from the shell. This plastic piece also gives considerable protection to an area that is high wear in just normal bike use or likely to be damaged in a crash. The plastic protector is held in place with small self-tapping recessed head screws that are screwed into the front rail bridge. The rails are made of spring steel, with the return curve at the front. The return curve is 1 3/4" from the tip of the saddle. There is also a plastic protector at the back of the seat, which not only covers another "Turbo" label, but also fastens the leather edge and gives protection to another area known for punishment. This rear protector is held with the same type of screws at the rear rail receivers. Available in Black or White, this saddle weighs 393 grams.
