Just curious, I can't identify it from watching on TV. I've noticed that every pro has their own preference, and was wondering if anyone knows what Lance's is.

I think it is a Concor model, but I read somewhere it is an old model that he sends back to be rebuilt every year. That's one of the perks of being a top pro, I guess! Same thing with his pedals. Once you get comfortable on your equipment, the last thing you want to do is change it. That especially applies to your butt!

By the way, when it comes to saddles, many manufacturers will make "blank" versions (without any logos or identifiers) so that pros can use their favorite saddle and not conflict with the team saddle sponsor. So trying to identify saddles from watching TV is not always going to work.

Selle San Marco Concor Light. That saddle has been available in three different versions, with steel, Ti, or carbon rails. I don't think the carbon rail model is still available, although the steel and Ti rail versions are. I've never seen it reported as to which version he rides.
