Category: All Purpose Saddles
Purchase: I brought my saddle in Australia off an online store having an end of financial year clearance recently. Nearly half price. $240.00. My second Wintec saddle, which I purchased due to the fact I miss the first one.
Likes: They are so hardy in the Aussie Outback. So much dust and the cleaning is endless. Wintec is SO easy to clean and so comfortable on the hot, dry 43 degree days we have! No sweat like the english leather saddles, where you feel like you have ran through a water puddle then mounted as your butt and legs sweat.
Dislikes: Whats not to like.
Quality: OH I love the feel of the material, colour and the sleek design of the saddle. So simple, yet so nice to look at and sit in.
Summary: As a child I only ever dreamed of one saddle, the new release WINTEC. I woke on the morning of my 13th Birthday and there it was...my WINTEC!! Unfortunately I turned it over and there it was....a hole! AARR, one very disappointed girl. However Wintec had no second thoughts on sending a replacement. I rode in that saddle for the rest of my junior career- it was beaten, fallen on, spurs ripped through as I come off but still it hung in. It was a dream saddle and lived up to all its expectations of that very rough, excited 13 year old girl!
