Berthoud Narrow Saddle, Galibier
Berthoud’s narrow high-performance saddle is designed for spirited riding in a stretched-out position. Titanium rails contribute to the superlight weight and also add comfort (titanium rails flex more than steel rails).
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: Treat only the top surface with Obenauf’s or a similar leather preservative. With the narrow shape, if you treat the underside as well, the saddle may become too soft to hold its shape.
