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. Weight, which varies a little due to the leather, is approximately 460g.

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.

Very easy disassembly thanks to an ingenious system made with stainless screws which fit into special-shaped brass washers. The cone-shaped washer fits into the leather avoiding any risk of damage.

- Rails made in titanium
- 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
The Best Leather Saddle I'Ve Ever Owned.

I recommend this product
ConsLong time to break-in
ProsSuperb quality
I'm a long-time user of Brooks saddles, but the Gilles Berthoud saddle is in another league.

The leather is much thicker and the precision of the manufacturing is like a swiss watch.

Mine still needs to be broken in so I can't comment on the comfort. Judging by how firm it is, I suspect it's going to take longer than a Brooks to break-in.

This is the best quality saddle I've ever owned. Well worth the money.
