Wow!! What an amazing saddle!! I just finished Ride the Rockies last week, an epic ride of 548 miles in 7 days. This is my second time participating in this event. Last year was my first one, and it was a very long and tough week. I was using a Fizik saddle and all I can say is that by the third day I wanted to quit because of the discomfort caused by the saddle. I had experimented with other saddles since, trying to find the one that would give me the most comfort. I tried other Fizik saddles, Speciliazed and Selle Italia. None seemed to be any better. Then I read some reviews about Selle Anatomica and I decided to give it a try. From the first ride I knew I had found the saddle for me, The final test was Ride the Rockies! It surpassed all my expectations! After 7 days and 548 miles I had absolutely no soreness or even the slightest discomfort! I truly was amazed and oh so happy!! This is definitely the saddle I will use for as long as I'll ride a bike! Thank you, thank you, thank you!
A Selle Anatomica Saddle with the Cane Creek Thudbuster seatpost is one of the best product combinations for tandem stokers we have come across. My lady stokers love this combination. The Tamer seat post can be bouncy and may produce fatigue over a long ride. I do have a couple of stokers that are using the Selle Anatomica on a Tamer seatpost. They had the seat post first so the bounciness is something they are accustomed to, but love the saddle. Once you compare design difference you will see why we think the Thudbuster is the better choice.We hear a lot of saddle problem stories from tandem riders and the Selle Anatomica is always the solution. You do not have the freedom to move around on the tandem as you do a single bike so the saddle has to be your friend. I have been riding the Selle Anatomica saddle and Thudbuster seatpost combination for 6+ years. I have many stoker friends with this set-up and when they have purchased a new tandem, the saddle and seat post are moved to the new bike. The saddle really conforms to the rider very quickly. There is no break-in and the Thudbuster Seatpost acts as the "insurance policy" for the stoker when the captain isn’t able to communicate a hole or whatever they hit that is going to provide impact to the back end of the tandem (stoker seat). And all tandem captains know the Golden Rule on a tandem..."if the stoker is not happy, nobody is happy" also heard as "if momma ain't happy, nobody is happy."Please feel free to give us a call to discuss details.

First, both TruLeather as well as our Watershed leather offerings are reinforced by the same laminates. Laminate is simply our word for a thin stiff piece of cow hide (not synthetic) that we glue to the underside of our leather tops to reinforce them. Our saddles have always been made of 100% leather.
TruLeather is commonly referred to in the leather industry as veg (pronounced vej). It gets its name from the vegetable oil used in the tanning process. The net result is a stiffer piece of leather than our Watershed offering.
TruLeather will come from the factory pre-treated with Selle Anatomica Saddle Sauce, an acrylic based product that seals the leather and will repel the water. We will offer saddle sauce for sale via our website in the coming weeks and recommend it for protection and maintenance of all of our saddles.
