Here's a lightweight, but wider, saddle designed for folks who keep their handlebars at or above saddle height. The idea was to make a wider, inexpensive and lightweight saddle that feels something like a leather saddle and has a classic appearance.
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 425g, the weight is significantly less than that of a modern leather saddle. Length is 282mm, about the same as a Model 3.
The smooth texture allows you slide around and get comfortable during long rides and ascents. The top is extremely water resistant - great for touring and city bikes. The body is thermo-plastic with a layer of high density foam. The rails are chromoly. All materials are vegan approved.

Excellent straightforward saddle. Nicely made, very comfortable for my average male butt doing easy road rides. Complements my “classic” bike nicely.
Great saddle for my vintage Fuji touring bike. Very good quality as always from Velo Orange.
I rode one of these on a bike I borrowed for about 12 miles a few months back. I didn't even notice the saddle was there, which, in my opinion, is the highest recommendation someone can give for a saddle.
I have the mirco-fiber version which I love, but being a person who wears dresses and cotton tights always, I would get stuck on the saddle. Switched that out to a step-through bike where it works very well, and the new smooth saddle is a dream to ride, and dismount!
Bought this saddle along with other items for my 3Rensho. It looks & feels great. I’ve had many complements from other cyclists. Great product - highly recommended.
