Cycles Berthoud – Leather Saddle Aspin Open Cork
Our “historical” model for the touring cyclist, with cutout in the leather top, cork color.
● The cutout in the leather top gives an even more comfortable ride releasing pressure on the pudendal nerve and thus reducing risks of saddle sore and genital numbness.
● Besides it further shortens the break-in period required.
● The Berthoud Aspin touring saddle is manufactured in house from thick natural vegetable tanned leather. It is pre-softened to shorten the break-in period.
● The bolt assemblies at the rear of the saddle are situated behind the area on which the cyclist sits. No risk of damaging your cycling shorts or your skin!
● Backplate made of technical material providing solidity and flexibility for maximum comfort.
● Loops for a saddle bag. Grooves and threaded inserts for a Klick-Fix system.
● Easy to disassemble thanks to an ingenious system of stainless steel bolts which fit into special-shaped brass washers.
● The cone-shaped washers fit snuggly into the leather avoiding any risk of damage.
● Rails made of polished stainless spring steel.The rails have a relatively long straight part giving saddle setback adjustment.
● Patented tension system. No special tool is required to adjust the tension, a 5mm Allen key is enough.
● Each saddle is individually marked with a unique serial number etched on the brass washer on top of the nose.
The leather density fluctuates between hides so the saddle weight can vary.
Price: €165.83 Tax included.
