Selle SMP: Black Vegan with Orange Pavement Pattern

For Dominic's new Prova Cycles Molti Road bike. Vegan (synthetic) leather in black with an ordered grid pattern perforation that breaks up an dissipates representing a smooth sealed road that breaks up and becomes gravel. This theme carries through the saddle, pump strap and bar tape.

Selle SMP: Black with Red Weave Perforations

Black kangaroo leather with perforations representing the weave pattern on Parlee's carbon fibre lugs. I covered this saddle 8 years ago for a new Parlee through The Cycling Edge. The bike was just in at Shifter Bikes for some upgrades and general tender loving care and Dan asked me to give the saddle a fresh new look. The cover from 8 years ago was a simple black hand dyed kangaroo which had patina'd wonderfully.
