Many riders do not need an introduction to Selle San Marco, the octogenarian Italian saddle maker that has been making saddles for pro and amateur rider alike for several decades. Over the years several Grand Tour and World Championship winners have ridden on a Selle San Marco saddle, from Fausto Coppi in the 50s to Greg LeMond in the 90s and Cadel Evans and others more recently again.
Despite being one of the most renowned saddle brands in the world, Selle San Marco is still made at the same small factory in northern Italy that founder Luigi Girardi opened for the purpose of making saddles in 1940. Since then Selle San Marco has been responsible for countless innovations and developments in saddle design and technology, and continues in this spirit of ongoing improvement and reinvention of perfection today.
From its original range of saddles for racing bikes back in the day, Selle San Marco now makes a wide range of saddles for both road and off road use.
