Italian saddle connoisseur Selle San Marco has recently added the Zoncolan to its range.
Rather than a variation on an existing theme, the Zoncolan is a completely new design aiming to offer high levels of comfort and facilitate a greater range of movement.
At the rear there is extra surface area, allowing the rider to sit deep in the saddle. Towards the front there is more padding around a shortened and cleverly tapered nose, which removes bulk to lessen any chance of chafing.
Carefully chosen materials, such as titanium rails, a carbon-fibre reinforced base, lightweight foam padding and a perforated Lorica cover combine to keep the weight at a very light 198g ? impressive, given the Zoncolan looks more substantial with its superior build quality compared to some other skimpy ?razor blade? designs.
It is available in a range of sizes according to San Marco?s simple S.I.Z.E. fit system. Price: £74.99.
