The Turbo is possibly the most popular and victorious saddle in history! It was the preferred saddle of most pro's in the 80's and early 90's. It's trophey shelf includes being ridden on Greg Lemond's 1983 World's championship, several Tour De France wins for Bernard Hinault and Miguel Indurain. It has been re-released in it's exact same form, without the modern "upgrades" that most re-issues have. This is essentially a 1980 Turbo, just manufactured in 2012!
This saddle is a new take-off. It has been treated with a leather conditioner called Snow Seal, which gives it it's dark, marbled color. No need to wear in the suede and wonder what it'll look like when it smooths out! It's already smooth due to the conditioner, and is protected from the elements much better than in stock form.
Condition: perfect, except very minor rail marks from installation/removal from a new bike.
