Can anybody recognize this saddle ?(9 posts)

Can anybody recognize this saddle ?PeterRider

I don't use it, so I want to sell it on ebay. But I don't know the model name. Don't see anything, the only thing that is written is "manganese" on the rail.

Thanks !

Looks very much like a Selle Italia XO gel to me, although these don't have the grey edging on them, possibly just another variation of it by Selle Italia.

XO gel. How much do you want for it, I may be interested. Let me know at senorpedro(AT)hotmail(DOT)com <- spam protection

all the italia seats that I've seen have Italia written on them. This one, nothing... but the picture and the shape of the gel inserts match well from what I see.

Flip it over and look for some writting on the under shell. It looks like a Selle Italia XO Gel to me, but was most likely made as an OEM saddle for your bike company, so it doesn't have a logo on it. That is not uncommon in the bike world. But the saddle will still have a manufacturer's name on the plastic shell most of the time.

It looks more like a Selle Italia Trimatic Gel than it does an XO Gel or anything else. This one happens to have the same "Manganese" label on it, which helps verify the manufacturer, at the very least. It's definitely not an XO, the shape is not at all the same.

I'm about 95% sure that it is a selle italia made for a specific bike manufacturer. One similar to it came on my Rocky Mountain. Exactly the same sewn gray stripes, but different design.
