Velo Orange saddles are made of the finest Australian cowhide. The frames are sturdy chrome plated steel. The midsection of the aprons are tied together underneath so the saddle won't splay out over time. The edge of the skirt is skived. The rails are about 10mm longer than on Brooks saddles.
The Model 5 saddle is a Sprung verion of our Model 3 saddle. The sprung frame is more comfortable on rough roads or extended tours, but heavier.
The Model 5 saddle is 170mm wide and 285mm in length. This is a size that most will find ideal for long distance touring and casual riding. It is particularly appropriate if your handlebars bars are set at, or above saddle height. Weight: 960g.
