Test saddles at Branford


At Branford Bike, you can find a well-stocked line of saddles to test ride. We offer free installation and a 30 day trial period for each model. We feel that this is the only way to truly shop for such an intimate component. Our current selection is highlighted in the list below.

Some of the following models may not be currently offered from the manufacturer, but they likely have just been re-named, and offer a similar model that we can help match up. In general, saddles are designed with either a wide or narrow body, when viewed from the top, as well as flat or curved when viewed from the side. For example, the Selle Italia pictured is flat and narrow. The Fizik Curve has a curved rear and is also narrow. The Terry pictured is an example of a wide saddle.

Got a favorite brand that’s missing from the list? We’d love to hear your suggestion for brands to carry, please leave us a comment at the bottom of the page! Please also visit us at branfordbike.com.
