Turbo 1980 - The classic racing saddle of the 80s, used by more of the professional racing community at the time, than any other. Made famous by 5 times Tour de France winner Bernard Hinault.

Designs were simple in those days yet the Turbo has stood the test of time. Carefully chosen leather, worked by craftsmen, with differentiated padding on a resilient, anatomically designed nylon shell. Made for racing.

ProsLight, beautifully well made, comfortable
I purchased the black suede version of this re-issued Turbo for a 1980s Peugeot restoration. The product is card packed with an extensive multi-lingual instruction sheet tucked in. Shell molding and frame rail metal work is cleanly done and the suede leather is tight and smooth, neatly trimmed under the shell with no apparent glue smears from attachment. The white Turbo logo decals are cleanly and tightly applied to the suede leather cover. The saddle rails are a perfect fit in the cradle of an SR micro adjusting seat post.

I have used Turbos before and look forward to riding this one once the restoration is completed.
