The standard leathers which you see in all of our saddles are made from vegetable-tanned cowhide. These are naturally dyed to get the colour of the leather which results that some batches may have a slightly different colour tone. This is natural and happens for most leathers. Coloured leather may also bleed or stain light coloured trousers, especially in the rain. As a precaution we advise wearing dark clothing when first using your saddle, though eventually this should stop.
In addition to our standard leathers, we also offer the “Softened”.
Softened saddles are treated to condition the leather to break in much faster. This is a great option if you tend to bike not as often as you want but still want that comfy leather saddle experience.
