Close Contact Saddles

For Sale on eBay

Manufacturer: Courbette
Model: Vision
Category: Close Contact Saddles

Purchase: Purchased from eBay for $810 in mint condition.

Likes: This saddle is the most comfortable close-contact saddle I've ever tried. The color combination is beautiful and so unique that I am complimented on it all the time. The knee and thigh blocks really help keep my leg in place as I ride and keeps me secure over jumps. The seat took about 4 rides to break in and fits like a glove.

Dislikes: Because the leather is very soft, pressure from objects marks the seat leather and scratches show up very easily. Be careful how you store it - I was throwing it into the back of my car so I can't say this would have happened if I had taken proper care to put it on a rack in my car. That said, scratches and marks do show up more on the darker leather - but this may just be my overly critical eye over my new saddle! :) I am a taller rider so if I had to choose again I might have selected the Vision XL with longer leg flaps. When I first got the saddle, the leg flaps looked too small for me but I think it was because I had been using a bigger all-purpose saddle.

Quality: This is the best quality saddle I have ever ridden in. Courbette really takes care to pay attention to the subtle details that really make a saddle work for the rider.

Summary: Fabulous saddle - I would recommend to anyone.
