Beautifully made, confortable part of English cycling heritage

A truely beautifully made saddle which has rightfully earned its place in cycling folk law. Even from the first ride I found this saddle far more comfy than my stock saddle and I did a 30 mile ride straight away with no problems. Supplied with 4 different coloured laces to customise your saddle and a packet of proofade to help break it in. I can't recommend this saddle highly enough!!

Pros
  • Beautifully made
  • Very comfortablr
  • Remarkable valie
Cons
  • Heavy compared to other saddles
