A great choice for the long distance rider looking for a light weight endurance saddle with a suede seat.
This Abetta Endurance model is built on Ralide's Endurance tree featuring a higher rise to keep you in the pocket and a 4" highback cantle with nylon binder. Available in regular or wide. Wide trees are covered with Abetta's Aire Grip technology and are available in regular or flex versions.
The Acu-Suede is designed to retain the look and feel of suede indefinitely and provides a little extra sticking power.
Designed with 3/4 centerfire rigging featuring leather reinforced half breed with stainless hardware.
"Half breed" means the nylon straps that the dees attach to are one single piece reaching from one side of the saddle to the other and anchored to the tree on each side. Most synthetic saddles are simply two small pieces of nylon anchored to the tree.
Other features include 4" endurance stirrups with padding, additional dees for trail gear, and scratch resistant 1000 denier nylon.
