The super-light Bontrager Titanio 200 was developed by Keith Bontrager and manufactured by Selle San Marco in the early 90s. The aim was to produce a light weight and slimmed down saddle for aggressive rider who liked to get over the back wheel and move the bike around. Pairing titanium rails to a lightly padded, leather covered top resulted in the distinctive shape and a claimed sub-200 gram weight. Keith Bontrager gained popularity for his no-nonsense approach to bicycle and component design, refining designs so that they worked as well as they possibly could using his Motocross and engineering background.
Bontrager’s maxim was: “strong; light; cheap: pick two” and generally his parts were never that cheap!
The saddle is unused like all of our stock but has a small fault in the ‘I’ of TI on the rear decal of the saddle as pictured. It comes with the original box, but its a bit battered!
