Fabric Saddles Launches 60 Day Fit Guarantee

by 0

If you’ve never experienced a day of discomfort in the saddle, lucky you. The rest of us envy your indestructible nethers and unreceptive nerve endings. But saddles are a notoriously ‘personal’ choice – your fundament is essentially as individual as your fingperprint, but somewhat more delicate when sat on for several hours.

While some bike shops do offer a few test saddles for men, women’s test saddles are rare as hen’s teeth, and many riders of either gender with delicate undercarriages (AKA normal ones) will have a collection of uncomfortable saddles in a corner of their garage. More organised riders may have a whole Ebay seller rating based on the resale of rejected saddles.

Fabric Saddle

In a move that will come as a (posterior) relief to many, Fabric Saddles has launched a 60 Day Fit Guarantee for all cycling saddles sold in the UK:

If consumers are not satisfied with the comfort of their Fabric saddle within 60 days of purchase, the saddle can be exchanged for a different Fabric model.

“Saddle comfort is a very personal thing and no fitting system can substitute trying a saddle. We know our saddles are supremely comfortable but always recommend riders try before they buy. Our customers now have 60 days to feel confident they have chosen the best,” said Nick Larsen, General Manager of Fabric. 

Buyers will be able to return the product to the retailer from which it was purchased, with proof of purchase, for an exchange to any new saddle from the Fabric lineup.  If the replacement saddle is higher priced, the consumer will be responsible for paying the difference.  If the replacement Fabric saddle is lower priced, the dealer will credit the consumer the difference.

While other manufacturers offer guarantees (eg Bontrager’s Unconditional Comfort Guarantee; Specialized’s Saddle Satisfaction Guarantee), as far as we know Fabric’s is the longest one so far – which gives you plenty of time to decide whether a saddle is right for you or not.

It’s available now from all Fabric retailers in the UK. For more information on Fabric visit Fabric.cc.Fabric Scoop Saddle

Hannah came to Singletrack having decided there must be more to life than meetings. Having worked in policy and project management roles at the Scottish Parliament and in local government, Hannah had organisational skills that SIngletrack needed. She also likes bikes, and likes to write.

Hannah likes all bikes, but especially unusual ones. If it’s a bit odd, or a bit niche, or made of metal, she’s probably going to get excited. If it gets her down some steep stuff, all the better. She’ll give most things a go once, she tries not to say no to anything on a bike, unless she really thinks it’s going to hurt. She’s pretty good with steri-strips.

More than bikes, Hannah likes what bikes do. She thinks that they link people and places; that cycling creates a connection between us and our environment; bikes create communities; deliver freedom; bring joy; and improve fitness. They're environmentally friendly and create friendly environments.

Hannah tries to write about all these things in the hope that others might discover the joy of bikes too.
