Campagnolo Electa in Titanium

The Campagnolo Electa saddles are standing the test of time based upon the prices they fetch. This is a rare titanium railed Electa.

Electa saddles were made briefly by Campagnolo in the mid-1980s. They feature the "Sella-Pneumatic System," which allowed the rider to fine-tune the firmness of the saddle by inflating and deflating a bladder sandwiched between the leather upper and the saddle shell.

  1. OMG, that's a beauty saddle, never seen such a thing and honestly didn't even think about inflating features of saddles at all. You're so lucky

  2. Interestingly enough, Richard Sachs is the one that's offering much of the NOS Campagnolo on ebay. He's been having quite a few auctions so he must be sitting on a warehouse full of stuff.
