Anybody ride one? I was thinking about one of the Turbo repros when I stumbled across the Vetta Gel Turbo. Were these made by Selle Italia? It looks nearly identical in shape to the standard Turbo. I remember Vetta saddles from years ago. They hade a suedy goodness about them. Anyone?

Vetta is alright but I wouldn't pay for it. Made in Italy, comes in similar shapes to many classic saddles. Was oem on a lot of 80's mid-range road bicycles

I had one, it was a bit wider than the more commonly known turbo and the foam/gel under the leather on mine was kinda worthless (NOS but degraded), i couldn't get used to it & gave it away. if you like the general shape I say just go for the real deal, the old school leather Turbo I had was awesome.

Any "gel" seat sucks, in my opinion - especially if it's old and the gel has either hardened up or degenerated.
