San Marco's Shortfit saddles are the most popular range at Cyclefit for riders who prefer a more forward position and a longer reach. The San Marco Shortfit saddle is very comfortable and helps the pelvis rotate forward promoting better posture. The raised back of the saddle provides stable support on the climbs. The curved profile reduces pressure points on the pubic ramii often seen with other brand's short nosed saddles.
The standard shortfit saddle has a slightly broader nose than the Allroads version.
The FX saddle has carbon rails and is the lightest in the range at 150 g.
This saddle is referred to as a WIDE (L3) and San Marco measure it at 144mm; but it fits more like a medium Bontrager (138) or Specialized Power saddle (143). We very rarely fit riders on the narrow version that is referred to as 134mm by San Marco.
San Marco says:
The all new ShortFit saddle was created to meet the needs of the most demanding cyclists who prefer fixed (really?) and aggressive positions on the bike.

The crossing X shape knot (Dynamic Node Action) enables to increase the rigidity of the rail and also to reduce the weight, avoiding useless spin and torsion, without compromising the comfort.
A length greater than the traditional carbon rails you can find on the market, allows one of the best adjustments of the saddle. Superleggera and Carbon FX saddles have this rail.
CARBON FIBER REINFORCED SHELL
Nylon with high properties, enriched with a high proportion of long carbon fibre, in order to reinforce the characteristics of rigidity, stiffness and durability without compromising the weight.
Biodynamic structure that follows the movements of the pelvis during pedalling, guarantees comfort, reduced weight, lasting resistance and ideal support. The “closed cells” surface ensures water is repelled from the padding.
MICROFEEL + CARBON COVER
Breathable and hard wearing cover. It is lighter than traditional materials and less deformable. Anti-skid effect with an extraordinary grip on the saddle. Biocompatible material. Corner touch points have a carbon fabric for added style & durability.
The perfect balance between the support and relief zone. The "big hole" helps maintain comfort under pressure and offers day long support and comfort. The central relief zone is long enough to work in all riding positions.
