Gilles Berthoud Aspin Leather Saddle




The Aspin is a high-performance leather saddle with a medium width – designed for an intermediate riding position that most cyclists find comfortable over long distances. Named for the 1,489 m (4,885 ft) Col d’Aspin in the Pyrénées, the Aspin uses Stainless Steel rails for strength and affordability.

Leather saddles have long offered the ultimate in comfort for long-distance cycling, because they shape themselves to your unique anatomy. Gilles Berthoud’s saddles use thoroughly modern materials and construction methods, while maintaining the advantages of a tensioned leather saddle.

The leather is thick and initially firm, but Berthoud saddles are pre-softened to shorten the break-in and they last many years. If the leather gets dry, we recommend a light treatment with Gilles Berthoud Proofide. Berthoud saddles rarely need tensioning. When they do, the tension is easy to adjust with a 5 mm allen key.

Available in natural, brown, black or cork.  Regular or Open.
