    Default Antares saddle - what does the P and E stand for?

    I used to know this when I bought the saddle, but can't remember now. THanks so much!

    I know the "E" stands for flat seat

    I thought that it went like this... but I could be wrong.

    E- narrow, L- wide,
    P - flat, SC - medium deep, or C - deep

    yes, that's exactly what the letters stand for!
    here are the French words:
    E= etroit (narrow), L= large (wide)
    P= plat (flat), SC = semi creux (semi deep), C= creux (deep)

    Thanks, that's good to know. Does CWD use the same system? I will have to look at mine tonight.

    Sorry - just re-read what Antares sent me, I sent them the info on my saddle, and they said the "E" meant Narrow flat seat? 3AR, means long slightly forward flap, M20PX3, are the other numbers, and Antares said that has to do with the panels, which were customized to have extra padding in the rear of the panels.

    Hope this helps, at least to figure out what parts of the saddle the numbers/letters stand for

    I have to admit our stampings are even harder to figure out... we like to keep our little secrets
    I can tell you all about your saddle if you pm me though
