How similar is to the power saddle in shape? from above it seems to replicate it fairly close. Interested to see a profile image if you have available?

Admittingly, I've never used the Power saddle, so I cannot provide a respectable opinion regarding, however, from what I can find, the Power is offered in 143mm/159gms and 155mm/161gms

Conversely, the Berk is only offered at 160mm at its widest part, a 60mm nose, length of almost 270mm, and weight of 80gm full carbon, 100gm padded, and a max rider weight of 220lbs

Hope this helps....

Thank you for the info. I'll have to take some measurements of my power saddle to compare. If you happen to get/have one in stock, I'd be very interested to see a complete profile picture to get a better idea of the contouring shape!

Cheers!

Very impressed. I rode quick 20 miles to work and I was very pleased.
Usually, I never had good experiences with weightweenie saddles, but Berk saddle is definitely different!

These are beautiful looking saddles. superlightweight and 160mm width don't seem compatible, but I would love to try one.


I just need to get my head around the cost, but hey, I have done that before, thanks to PPP (Paceline Peer Pressure)!

Keeping with the custom theme, a padded 150mm Lupina in white for Stephencl

Attached is a matte 132mm to show the slight difference in width.

I'm thinking of splurging on a white Berk. Does the covering look like it'll hold up to wear, stains from clothing, etc.? (I will avoid wearing jeans when using the saddle, but it will probably see *some* use when I'm in commuterwear.)

Great question and my initial thought when it arrived. The padding is 3mm thick, and like anything white, it will take some care to keep clean. A wipe down with a clean, wet cloth should keep it looking great.

New Dila model

A new saddle model will soon hit production with more details as soon as they become available to me. The current Dila saddle (160mm wide, will be called L/XL) will soon get a smaller option Dila S/M (140mm)
