Classic, made in France, leather saddle with modern features. 278mm x 180mm. Mente is a wider saddle for commuters and tourists who might prefer a more upright position. Thick natural vegetable tanned leather. Pre-softened to shorten the break-in period.
A classic style leather saddle, made in France by the venerable Gilles Berthoud company, with modern features. The Mente is our wider saddle for commuters and tourists who might prefer a more upright position. The thick natural vegetable tanned leather is pre-softened to shorten the break-in period, and the polymer blackplate is strong but flexible for comfort, with saddle bag loops.
All Berthoud saddles feature long rails for a wide range of setback adjustment. Tension adjustment of the leather is made with a 5mm allen key, (no special tool required).
No risk of damaging your cycling shorts or your skin! Backplate made of technical material providing solidity and flexibility for maximum comfort.
Loops for a saddle bag. Grooves and threaded inserts for a Klick-Fix system.
Easy to disassemble thanks to an ingenious system of stainless steel bolts which fit into special-shaped brass washers. The cone-shaped washers fit snugly into the leather avoiding any risk of damage.
Rails made of polished stainless spring steel. The rails have a relatively long straight part giving saddle setback adjustment.
Patented tension system. No special tool is required to adjust the tension, a 5mm Allen key is enough.
Each saddle is individually marked with an unique serial number etched on the brass washer on top of the nose.
