Selle San Marco is a well-known Italian company with a rich history of manufacturing authentic, handmade saddles with care. The company is located in Rossano Veneto in Italy and is famous for its road bike saddles. Luigi Girardi made Rossano Veneto the bicycle saddle capital of Europe when he set up the Selle San Marco factory over 75 years ago. When he was young, this hardworking street sweeper loaned 100 Lira to set up his bicycle parts company. Five years later, he opened the Selle San Marco factory, employing roughly 40 people. The company’s leather bike saddles were a huge success. Modern bike saddles with a rich history are what make Selle San Marco stand out. Their combination of quality, authenticity and technology is what makes these saddles such unique masterpieces.
