Each leather is different and slightly imperfect, making each saddle a unique one : yours.

The conception of our leather saddles mixes a tradition material, leather, with today's materials : stainless steel, titanium and synthetic materials part of reasoned decision making.
The croissant is an essential piece for confort and solidity. Our croissants never break ; thousands of saddles have travelled millions of kilometers breakage free. But its major quality stands in its confort and its ability to deform to cycling while filtrating vibrations of a paved road.
The structure has been thought to be dismounted, the leather setting system is the result of stainless steel screws and washers far from the sitting area. The choice of stainless steel or better of titanium rails allows absolute reliability.
The leather full grain leather has not been rectified, its vegetal tanning will leave traces of an authentic material. It will let a healthy cycling that adapts to your squeletton and shows a nice patina that will make your saddle a unique object.

Three pieces of advice to maintain your saddle in great shape

GREASE WITH NO EXCESS

Maintain a leather saddle is easy. Don’t sweat it and keep this one rule in mind : don’t do anything to a wet piece of leather. The top side (grain), will stay shiny thanks to our leather conditioner, your saddle day cream. Wipe off grit and dust with a damp cloth, then just spread a bit of product on the leather and gently buff with a clean cloth to make it shine. The underside (flesh side), needs grease once a year, no more. Scoop a bit of our wax (the size of a hazelnut) and gently rub the leather until the product has fully penetrated and voilà, a healthy leather !

STAY LOOSE ON TENSION

Remember rule #1 : don’t do anything to a wet leather. As your leather will break in and start to conform to your body, it will be necessary to adjust its tension once in a while to keep it comfortable and prevent it from sagging too much. With the help of a 6mm Allen key (or 5mm for «race» saddles), tighten the tension screw (clockwise) with two to three turns increments until the leather gets back to a comfortable shape.

IN CASE OF A SOAKED SADDLE

As far as possible, try to keep your saddle away from rain and water. We highly recommend the use of full fenders or a saddle cover : our lightweight ripstop nylon saddle cover allows you to ride while protecting your saddle. If your saddle ends up soaked and starts to sag/flare : don’t panic ! Stop as soon as possible and stuff as much newspapers or cloths as possible between the leather and the rails so they’ll push the leather up and let air dry naturally.If the leather has flared, you can tighten it with a strap too, making sure you tighten on several protective layers to not mark the lather. When completely dry, just proceed to regular maintenance on both sides and retighten if necessary.
