Check out the Tekna saddles. 100% rain proof
If you like the fit of the Prestige saddle and are looking for a synthetic saddle you may look at the Tekna saddles as the tree and fit are similiar.
Sorry for the attitude but too often people say things on here for commercial reasons. ie to start a rumour that may hurt the manufacturer of the product in order to further their own interests....
No way of telling the age, but by the mid 90's not a lot of plain flap saddles being sold.. I would guess the 80's. But I really do not know.
Referring to this post.
"I could be wrong, but Im pretty sure the Dy'on brand came out before Aramas and are not affiliated."
Equilibrium w/ plain flaps ? No they never offered such a model.
The saddle looks pretty much like one of the standard PDN childs models.
Model # 4502 It was available in 13, 14, 15 & 16" seats....
Chestnut should oil up plenty dark.
The color that is really light in a Crosby would have been the London color.
Who makes this stuff up ?
Harhmonkraft has been around way way longer than Dy'on.
As per the note by Tina Mohan they are very much in business.
The idea that Raj who grew up as a bridlemaker...
Pics would make the id easier.
They are now made in Vietnam rather than South America
Fantastic saddle desgined by Tad Coffin.
It was the first Crosby to have wider panels and a deeper more euro jumper seat.. Collegiate is not really the same in design.
Helmets have to be tested on equipment not on actual people, that is unless you would like to be the tester :)
The ASTM standard is an open procedure that allows ALL interested parties to have...
The Hunterdon was actually a bit deeper seat saddle than the PDN's at the time. The PDN was a saddle that was constantly changing with the times so it is difficult that say that a PDN was this or...
Ovation's make some of the best breeches for men..
They definetely are nicer then one would expect for the price.
Forget price, they are the best I have worn.
The one thing that stands out to me is that Hadfields has very high standards based upon alot of experience and knowledge.
In my opinion you can never go wrong with a Hadfields product. This does...
Hydrophane is my "go to" oil... Very dependable quality and performance.
EURO AND ASTM STANDARDS ARE NOT THE SAME
The standards for the Euro helmets and the Astm helmets are not the same.
The differences however are not insignificant.
The ASTM standard from an...
Made in China, made in India, made in Ireland. Really the country of origin does not mean very much.
Ralfh Lauren makes great shirts in China and in many "parts way unknown", but it is their...
Ovation trees have a lifetime warranty. If the tree breaks they replace it.
They also warranty their adjustable gullet saddles for lifetime against spreading. Spreading is probably more of a...
I would guess that the intials are for Meaghen (sp?) Saddle Company.
The fellow Bob Meaghan used to work for Miller's before the company went under.
He was actually the guy that was...
Great company, great products...
The cost of a seat repair is really very expensive because they essentially have to take the saddle apart and rebuild it.
Quality from saddler to saddler really varies as does the price.
While seat size may be of value, I think the seat in combination with the flap design is the most critical concern.
A long hip to knee may require a more forward flap and a longer knee to ankle may...
Most of the Pessoa saddles come with a forward flap option.
The Legacy has the most forward flap as it is designed for a shorter stirrup position.
Other than a very light initial oiling done gingerly, I would use a leather conditioner to keep it in shape rather than oiling.
