Here's a vegan-friendly saddle designed for folks who keep their handlebars at or around saddle height. The idea was to make a lightweight saddle that feels something like suede and has a classic appearance thanks to a microfiber top.
At 154mm wide it's about the same width as a Brooks Swallow leather saddle. But this is somewhat deceptive because there are no rivets or a flaring leather "skirt." So the sitting area is comparable to a slightly wider leather model. At 280gr the weight is significantly less than that of a modern leather saddle. Length is 267mm.
The microfiber's texture keeps you from sliding around and it's weather resistant. The body is thermo-plastic with a layer of high density foam. The rails are chromoly.
