Aspin leather saddle for city or touring bike. Historic model from Berthoud for the hiker, with central opening. Fully dismountable. Stainless steel rails.
The first particularity of a Berthoud Cycles saddle lies in the fact – both unique and yet so obvious – that each of the parts that make it up, in addition to its impeccable quality, can be replaced in the distant future, from the backplate to the saddle nose, to the stainless steel or titanium rails, screws, cups, and the piece of leather that makes up the seat. Durable and pragmatic design if there is one. Berthoud saddles are made in Fleurville, you can’ t make it up.
The open Aspin model improves rider comfort by relieving pressure on the pudendal nerve, thus reducing the risk of numbness.
Leather saddle ( unisex model) made in France in the Berthoud workshops.
Pre-weathered for comfort from the very first kilometers.
Rear bindings outside the seat area to avoid friction on the shorts.
Synthetic technical material with high mechanical characteristics combining resistance and flexibility to offer maximum comfort.
Passageways for fixing a saddle bag integrated in the crescent.
Space provided for adaptation of a Klickfix support.
Completely removable thanks to the system of assembly of the leather on the frame, ensured by stainless steel screws whose heads are housed in brass cups. These conical inner cups fit into the recesses stamped in the leather, thus ensuring a perfect fit.
Long straight section for precise adjustment of the saddle’s recoil.
Patented anti-rotation tensioning system.
The leather is tensioned with a 5mm Allen key.
A unique number engraved on the nose cup is assigned to each saddle.
