    Flite Riders

    I like my Selle Italia Flite, but it is beat. I'm about to sell my San Marco Rolls and I've found a good deal on a NOS Concor Light. Can anyone compare the Concor light to the Flite, I like the firm narrow nose on the flite and the lack of side skirts.

    I know saddle choice is entirely personal but I figured it was worth the ask!

    I ride a flite 90% of the time, and I really like it. Most comfortable saddle I've used yet. I tried an old school concor for a while and it was the only saddle I've ever ridden that actually made my taint numb. The top was too rounded and it put pressure on my soft tissues, as far as I can tell. I think the concor lite is a different shape though, so I cant really answer your question I guess.

    I'll echo the last statement. All I rode for ten years was Flites and I like them a lot. Last year I experimented with a few other saddles.

    Brooks Swift = meh, okay.
    San Marco Regal = quite nice
    Concor = killed me. the thing was murder. this was also an older saddle, not the Concor Light though.

    YMMV
