Microfiber Touring Saddle
Here's a vegan-friendly saddle designed for folks who keep their handlebars at or around saddle height. The idea was to make a lightweight saddle that feels something like suede and has a classic appearance thanks to a microfiber top.
At 154mm wide it's about the same width as a VO Model 6 or Brooks Swallow 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 280gr the weight is significantly less than that of a modern leather saddle. Length is 267mm.
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.
Purchased on sale as an attempt to find a saddle width that is comfortable. I am 5'-7" and a buck 50 have it installed on my old Campeur. Three years later I am still using it. Comfort meets my expectations and I hope I can get three more years of use from it. Am recovering from the virus so will be getting back on the bike as my strength permits. Great saddle for the price -recommended.
I love,love ,love it.thank you VO!
