Anyone riding a San Marco Concor saddle?(7 posts)

Anyone riding a San Marco Concor saddle?ol

I would just like to know whether the saddle is wide fit or reasonably narrow around the nose of the saddle.
Feedback welcome.

Yes. Have used them for the last 20 years (not the same one!).
I would class it as a medium to narrow around the nose.

I would call the back 1/3 and the front 1/3 medium to narrow. The middle 1/3 feels quite narrow to me. This is also true of the newer Concor Lite which for me was to the original Concor as light beer is to real beer.
san marco regal is wider and just as firm or more firmJS Haiku Shop

(I just realized the leading nature of my subject line, LOL)

the concor is narrow at nose and at the back. the regal (ti or cromo railed) is the widest san marco makes (i think), and is comfy for me on all day rides. though they (regal ti/cr) are supposed to be the same saddle, the cromo-railed version seems to be more "anatomically formed" (like the shape of an arse), whereas the ti model seems to be more the opposite. i can sit on either, all day. ymmv.

the rolls appears to be about the same, and it looks like it might be a bit more padded, but i have no first hand (first cheek) experience.

I like it. It's minimalist, classic, low-key, durable. Don't find the saddle to be too wide. It's only slightly wider around the nose than the Selle Italia saddle I have on my other road bike.

Rode on a Concor Lite for a few ride and ditched it. Super hard saddle which will not please all riders - does any saddle?

On a somewhat related note, the Avocet O2 range of saddles have a medium wide back and narrow nose. Just the thing for thick legged riders like myself that chafe against saddles with a thick nose.
