Microfiber Touring Saddle, Wide - Bent Badge
A shipment of our Wide Microfiber Touring Saddles had a few rear badges that were either crooked or bent during shipping. The only issue with them is the aesthetics of the badge, so we're knocking off a few bucks.
Here's a vegan-friendly saddle designed for folks who keep their handlebars at or above saddle height. The idea was to make a wider and lightweight saddle that feels something like suede and has a classic appearance thanks to a microfiber top. In addition, there are loops for a saddlebag.
At 165mm wide it's about the same width as a VO Model 3 or Brooks B17 leather saddle. But this is somewhat deceptive because there are no rivets or a flaring leather "skirt." So the sitting area is comparable to a slightly wider leather model. At 425gm the weight is significantly less than that of a modern leather saddle. Length is 282mm, about the same as a Model 3.
The microfiber's texture keeps you from sliding around and it's weather resistant. The body is thermo-plastic with a layer of high density foam. The rails are chromoly.
