Two Aliantes: Versus Evo Pull Up & Open Bison

 Tara sent a few saddles and some thick leathers to recover them. The first is a Fizik Versus Evo in waxed tan bovine leather which has a strong pull-up effect, my guess is that this leather should age very nicely. Through the centre channel panel is a fine perforated arrow. The second is a Fizik Aliante Open covered in a beautiful chocolate coloured shrunken bison leather. Both leathers were approximately 2.4mm thick, so the first step was to split them back to 1mm to be suitable for the purpose.
