Berthoud Medium Saddle, Aravis/Aspin


Berthoud’s medium-width leather saddle  is perfect for long distances and a slightly more upright position. Choose between titanium rails (Aravis model) for superlight weight and even more comfort (titanium rails flex more), or economical stainless steel rails (Aspin model).

Leather saddles offer the ultimate in comfort because they shape themselves to your unique anatomy. Berthoud saddles use modern materials and construction methods while maintaining the advantages of a tensioned leather saddle. The leather is thick and initially firm, but Berthoud saddles are pre-softened to shorten the break-in. They are comfortable after just a few rides, and then they last many years. Berthoud saddles are fully rebuildable, should the need arise (or if you want to change your saddle’s color).

Pro Tip: If your saddle is too hard, treat both sides with Obenauf’s or a similar leather preservative. If you don’t want your saddle to soften too much, treat only the top surface.
