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 425gm the weight is significantly less than that of a modern leather saddle. Length is 282mm, about the same as a Model 3.
There are loops for a saddle bag and a metal nameplate.
These saddles feature a microfiber top which resembles the suede leather used on many classic racing saddles. 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. All materials are vegan approved.
