Nothing is more comfortable when riding if you are sitting on a saddle that does not make you feel your buttock areas are going numb. The San Marco Zoncolan saddles can solve that problem for you. This product was designed to have a wide, unusually expansive rear section with short, narrow and well-padded nose. The purpose of this design is to give the rider a comfortable ride and maximize their movement while seated rearwards with a good comfort levels.
This 2010, the carbon-fiber saddles are common but with the San Marco’s latest invention, their Carbon FX saddle rails were added with the weight of this Zoncolan model down to at least 150g. These rails are then molded into one piece with a unidirectional weave and is about 10mm deep to provide the much wanted stiffness. It is said to match the stiffness of the Xsilite steel rails that was used for the base model of Zoncolan.
Benefits of this saddle is that the rider can have a less expensive yet heavier saddle for training and a lighter saddle for competition while still enjoying the same comfort that this product was designed for in the first place. The upper body of this saddle is a Lorica based syntheric leather covering that is said to have a “Microfeel” texture that helps reduce slippage while riding this saddle.
The colors available are black and white for the standard Zoncolan Carbon FX. Other versions includes one that is with the Racing Team Livery.
