Gilles Berthoud saddles are crafted with top of the line materials and extreme attention to detail. Each cowhide is hand-selected for it’s look and quality and undergoes a natural vegetable oil tanning process. The saddles are made with 5mm thick leather that molds to your sit bones, ensuring long-lasting comfort that ages beautifully. The leather is pre-softened by hand, cutting down the time you need to break-in the saddle. The hide is water proofed, ensuring better long term usage and rideability.
The frame is made of polycarbonate, allowing for flexibility while retaining strength and durability and either titanium or stainless steel rails. Underneath the saddle, you will find a no-torque ring; a metal ring ensuring that the rails don’t bend out of shape from long term, high-torque pedaling. Also found on the undercarriage is a leather tension system, allowing you to increase or decrease the tension of the leather to suit your riding needs with a simple Allen key. Holding the leather to the frame is an ingenious system using recessed brass washers (laser engraved with the Gilles Berhtoud name) and screws. While most leather saddles use hammered rivets to secure the leather to the saddle frame, Gilles Berthoud saddles use this technology in order to enable the rider to quickly and easily switch the leather tops with no more than an Allen key. Each saddle is also comes with a laser engraved serial number on the washer found on its nose.
Encompassing cutting-edge technology and old-fashioned attention to detail, Gilles Berthoud saddles are the ultimate choice in comfort, quality, durability and style for seasoned riders and newcomers alike.
