Berthoud’s racing saddle with a narrow shape is 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 last many years. If the leather gets dry, we recommend Gilles Berthoud Proofide treatment. Berthoud saddles rarely need tensioning. When they do, the tension is easy to adjust with a 5 mm allen key.
