From Berthoud :
Designed with randonneuring and long distance riding in mind, this model will give you maximum comfort with a slightly angled torso position.The cutout makes for a very supple leather and prevents risks of perineum soreness in addition to a superior comfort.
The cutout in the leather top gives an even more comfortable ride releasing pressure on the pudendal nerve and thus reducing risks of saddle sore and genital numbness.
Besides it further shortens the break-in period required.
The Berthoud Cycles Aspin touring saddle is manufactured in house from thick natural vegetable tanned leather. It is pre-softened to shorten the break-in period.
The bolt assemblies at the rear of the saddle are situated behind the area on which the cyclist sits. No risk of damaging your cycling shorts or your skin!
Backplate made of technical material providing solidity and flexibility for maximum comfort.
Loops for a saddle bag. Grooves and threaded inserts for a Klick-Fix system.
Easy to disassemble thanks to an ingenious system of stainless steel bolts which fit into special-shaped brass washers.
The cone-shaped washers fit snuggly into the leather avoiding any risk of damage.
Rails made of polished stainless spring steel.The rails have a relatively long straight part giving saddle setback adjustment.
Patented tension system. No special tool is required to adjust the tension, a 5mm Allen key is enough.
Each saddle is individually marked with an unique serial number etched on the brass washer on top of the nose.
* The leather density fluctuates between hides so the saddle weight can vary.
