Handmade in Italy by Selle Monte Grappa.
The Old Frontier 1955 is a slimline coil-sprung leather saddle of remarkable quality. First made in 1955, it's a classic design.
With a coil sprung chassis the Old Frontier is built to resist sagging over time while still maintaining maximum comfort. A narrower nose and shallow side cheeks conform to today's modern expectations for a comfy racing saddle- nothing the Italian's didn't know decades ago of course!
Leather saddles have three advantages over plastic:
- The big advantage: they are much more comfortable!
- They are generally more durable;
- They can be repaired
