The Turbo is a flat saddle, the Flites are usually a bit more curved.

My turbo 3 was worn out, so I bought a gel flight. I haven't noticed any difference at all. I rode turbo's for years before I switched. I know the flite is a bit lighter, but that isn't why I bought it. Its' just that a turbo in the color I wanted wasn't available. The flite is very comfy for my tush.

One caveat....the flite gel that I bought was from Ebay. It was a pre-1999 model unused. From reading this board, so take it with a grain of salt, the flite's have changed configuration slightly.
