FAQs: Charge Spoon Saddle
are these synthetic?
Yes. They are entirely synthetic. It’s a nice finish, and quite leather-like, but waterproof and comfy.
Is the material waterproof? What happens when it rains?
It’s synthetic so it does get soaked eventually but light rain typically beads off. I spray mine with silicone waterproofing to help repel water
Would this work for heavy riders?
It is a good value for the price. I weigh 215 at 6’1″ and it works well enough if you take the bumps with your legs. If you want to sit upright and putter around town you will need a suspension post at minimum. If you are really out of shape get a spring seat to save your sit bones.
What grip tape would match with this saddle?
Deda Elemental leather-look matches near perfectly. I now have Arundel Gecko Grip in brown and it looks good with this saddle.
