Leather saddle Aspin open natural

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.
For optimal comfort with open leather, we advise you to use cycling shorts to avoid the risk of pinching.
The lifespan of leathers may be affected by the weight of the user.

Designed and made in our workshop based in beautiful South Burgundy, France, all our saddles present a unique serial number engraved on the brass washer on top of the saddle nose.

For a comfort straight out of the box, we pre-soften the leather but our saddles still require a few hundred kilometers to really break in and conform to your shapes and position.

The design and components of our saddles allow for an easy maintenance. Leather tension adjustment and an eventual disassembly/reassembly is possible with only a 5mm allen key and a TX20 torx key.

Main characteristics :

- Thick vegetable tanned leather

- Highly resistant technical composite backplate and nose parts for flex and vibration dampening.

- Saddle bag loops and M4 threaded inserts in the backplate accross our rando and city models

- Leather attachment points away from the seat area to avoid friction

- Securely fastened and easily removable leather thanks to 7 or 9 stainless screws and brass washers

- Fully serviceable with only 2 standard tools (5mm allen key and TX20 key)

- Patented anti-twisting brace and leather tension system


All our saddles are available with either stainless steel or titanium rails and our touring models are also available with an open leather.

Weight can vary slightly due to leather density.

The design of our leather saddles combines a traditional material, leather, with today's materials: stainless steel, titanium and synthetic materials chosen with care. Each of our saddles are made in our workshops in Burgundy.

A return is possible if the saddle is not marked and is still in its original box.

To do this, we recommend that you mount the saddle on your bike and only perform a static test while riding your bike. We invite you to put on your shorts to proceed with the test in order to avoid any risk of scratching the leather with a button or a rivet.

This will allow you to see if the shape seems to fit or if it is a definite no. Still in shorts, it is possible to do some cranking on the road to get a feel for the bike, but here again, the utmost caution is required.

As you can see, if the leather shows any trace, mark or scratch, we will not be able to take it back.

In our workshop we manufacture two types of bicycle saddles:

  1. "Open leather" or so-called open bike saddle (with a hole or slit in the middle).
  2. A "full leather" or so-called closed (or full) bicycle saddle.

The choice between an open model (with a hole in the middle) and a closed model is always complex because it depends on many parameters. Each saddle has its advantages and disadvantages.

For people who are prone to this problem, open saddles will reduce crushing of the perineum.

In addition, open leather will be comfortable almost immediately but will probably have a shorter life span than closed leather. Indeed, the opening creates a fragility

Closed leather will take longer to break in but will ultimately be more durable (we recently changed a leather that had travelled 150,000 kilometres!). This is all theory.

In practice, it also depends on the weight of the person, the type of pedalling, the maintenance, the use: weather (rain with or without mudguards), perspiration...

Naturally, we would recommend a closed model on a travel bike for its longer life.

Leather absorbs dye and thus retains its charm. The use of paint would mask the various marks testifying to the life of the animal.

It is possible that color transfer may occur due to rubbing against clothing worn while pedaling. This is why we recommend avoiding light-colored clothing. This is because our colored saddles are dyed and the dye is not fixed.

Depending on the leather, a saddle may curve more or less quickly depending on different parameters such as position on the saddle, pedaling frequency, user weight, etc.

When you notice that the leather begins to relax (feeling soft) you must quickly tighten your saddle.

We recommend that you regularly tighten your saddle in a progressive manner (1/4 turn by 1/4 turn) to obtain the appropriate feeling.

Be careful, don't wait until it is too late because leather that is too soft will be impossible to tighten and you will have to purchase a replacement leather.

In order to maintain your leather bicycle saddle, we invite you to download our instruction manual (FR/EN) which contains the essential advice to keep your saddle in shape. This manual is also provided in paper format inside each of our saddles that leave our workshops to help you maintain them over the long term.

Also, in order to maintain leather softness and aspect of the underside of your saddle (flesh side), we propose a Wax to apply without excess once or twice a year.

The Leather Conditioner comes in complement to restore and maintain a high shine of the top side of the leather (grain) of your saddle.

Finally, we also cut and sewn in our workshop simple or integral saddle cover which is ideal when you ride in heavy rain without fenders (mudguards) or when your bike is on your car.
