    Concor SL vs. regular Concor

    Obviously 'SL' is for 'Super Light' but what makes them SL? I'm assuming its the rails.....

    Does anyone know what the SL rails are made of and how would you visualy identify an SL saddle?

    I've noticed 3 o4 different Concor saddles....'America' with red, white and blue back panel, some have a full 'world champinship (WC)' color back panel while other have a small WC color in the upper corner. And then there's the 'Confort' version....

    Thanks,

    Jim

    FWIW, I've got a new Concor Light, it has TX-Co rails and the claimed weight is 210 grams. I'm not sure what TX-Co means. These saddles are currently available through the QBP catalog, and I believe the "Light" model is all they carry, in a few different colors with various graphics.

    I have 2 vintage Concor SuperCorsa Comforts with NON-magnetic rails but they dont say 'SL' or Super Light on them. They each weight ~285grams but keep in mind thses are 'comfort' saddles with extra padding. The rails aren't marked and I'm trying to find out what they're made of.

    I have one Supercorsa and one Superleggera; both are Confort. While I can't identify the material of the rails, I can say that, for whatesver reason, the Superleggera is notably lighter and closer to my early Flite, which is around 200g. The Supercorsa is pictured on the smoke chrome Ultima SL; the Superleggera is pictured on the light blue Masi, but it now sits on the aforementioned Ultima. As you can see there's not a significant difference in their appearance, except that the SL is patterned leather and the SC is smooth. In any case both are very comfortable saddles.
