- Berthoud’s lightest saddle combines a narrow shape with titanium rails for a weight of only 346 g. Named for the 2,645 m (8,677 ft) Galibier in the Alps, this high-performance saddle is designed for spirited riding in a more stretched-out position, yet it features the same thick, luxurious leather upper as Berthoud’s other top-quality saddles.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. We’ve been riding these saddles for years, because we find them so comfortable.The leather is thick and initially firm, but Berthoud saddles are pre-softened to shorten the break-in. They are comfortable after just a few long rides, and then 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 colour.
