Oiled nubuck is leather that's been roughed to make nubuck, then oiled to make a softer, almost broken-in feel which is also grippier than standard leather. It's the most popular material. Non-oiled nubuck eventually smooths and shines anywhere there's contact, so becomes like oiled nubuck, but not evenly over the product.

Lorica is a soft but tough synthetic available in fun colors, great for a cushy seat or grippy thigh blocks. Also perfect for those who ride in wet weather or looking for a vegan option.
Micropel synthetic has a heft similar to real leather, very hardy and a bit slicker like natural leather. Also a good option, especially on the flaps, for those who ride in wet weather or want a vegan option
Micronappa synthetic has a softer, more luxurious feel, very similar to a Nappa leather. Not as durable or slick as Micropel. Easy to clean, and great for riding in wet weather.
Real sheepskin is also available endless variations of (white, natural, brown, black) in addition to dyed skins. We show you the available skins to choose from. You can choose sheepskin for just the seat or the whole saddle but for long flap models you might consider a "wear" strip to avoid unexpected wear in high motion areas and also because not all sheepskins are big enough for the full flap.
Suitable to accent low-wear areas only
