Our types of leather

The choice and types of leather described only refer to the ones used in flaps and skirts, while the seat and roll knee are made of calf or bovine leather depending on the model. The available types vary depending on the selected model. Not all leather options are suitable for the entire range of products.

Elite
La peculiarità dell’Elite è il suo colore London, disponibile solo per questa categoria di pellame. Nel range dell’alta gamma offriamo due tipologie di prodotti Élite: cuoio stampato e doppiata in pelle di vitello. Il cuoio stampato Elite è un prodotto naturale sottoposto a un processo di concia vegetale in vasca, il quale richiede una lavorazione più lunga rispetto ad altri metodi. Questo processo garantisce una qualità superiore, un migliore fissaggio del colore e una buona resistenza all’invecchiamento durante l’uso normale. Pertanto, il cuoio stampato Elite è la scelta ideale per coloro che cercano un prodotto durevole e resistente. Questa variante è disponibile solo per selle da Salto Ostacoli, con uno spessore che varia da 4.0 a 4.5 mm per i quartieri e i quartierini. La pelle doppiata di vitello Elite, invece, viene sottoposta a un processo di oleatura per garantire la massima morbidezza. Questa tipologia di pelle offre un grip ottimale, donando una sensazione confortevole e di aderenza. La variante in pelle doppiata è disponibile per selle da Salto Ostacoli, Dressage e Cross Country.

Tree on blend of synthetic fibers for a lightweight and durable tree.

In the 1970s, we made the decision to switch to composite fiber frames, a move that went against the grain of our competitors who were still using wood. This choice proved to be a winning one, allowing us to produce saddles that were lighter but just as durable. What once seemed like a risky gamble has become one of the secrets to our success.
