Galibier leather saddle for racing bike. The fastest, lightest, and narrowest of the Berthoud saddles, designed for sports use. Completely dismountable. Titanium 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 invent it.

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.

Cow's croupon* full grain, ***vegetable-tanned leather.

*Croupon: part of the skin located on the back of the animal. This is where the skin is thickest and strongest.

**Full grain: leather whose grain (upper side of the hide) has not been corrected. In addition to a dense aspect, it is a witness of the animal’s life, and each mark on its skin will find its place on a saddle Berthoud, giving it its unique and precious character.

***Vegetable tanning: process requiring only tannins of vegetable origin (bark, sap, leaves). The colors are natural, beige, brown, and the leather acquires, with time and use, a unique patina.
