The saddle top is made of thick, natural vegetable tanned leather that has been pre-softened and waterproofed. This is attached to the rear of the frame to position the rivets away from the rider.

The saddle's width of 180mm is ideal for commuters and tourists who might prefer a more upright position. Length is 278mm. The weight, which varies a little due to the leather, is approximately 510g.

The rear crescent is made of a strong technically advanced material that is both stable and flexible for maximum comfort. Loops are built in to accommodate a saddle bag. Polished stainless steel spring is used for the rails. These have long parallel sections to give ample room for adjustment.

A special tension system, adjusted with a 5mm Allen key, prevents the nose from twisting.

Overall Product Rating 5 / 5
A perfect fusion of the Post and Erior.

I recommend this product
ProsUltimate comfort.
I shall be 61 years young this August and have dire need of the cooling effect a good leather saddle offers to the nether regions. The saddle is fantastic and I would and will recommend it to anyone else of an older age. The Mente model is for a more upright position and was bought for a particular bike of mine. I shall be buying more of the Berthoud saddles but am unable to get the model I'd like from SJS cycles, namely the Aravis, which is the non titanium rail version of the Vars. The breaking in of this saddle is no problem at all, as they are comfortable from the get go.

What is the weight limit of the bag loops?
19 Apr 2022
Do you know if there's a weight limit for the bag loops on Gilles Berthoud saddles? I'm wondering if it would be okay to use a Carradice Classic Rack (which has a recommended maximum load of 6kg), or does this rack require metal loops?
The manufacturer does not provide a maximum weight limit, however, to be safe i would say no more than 3kg.
