Do a quick Google, it’ll show you Lupina saddles trimmed in a few different coloured leather covers.

Oh yeah. At least white is one of those colours. :) Cool.

... but does he do natural tan leather, I wonder? :roll:
Cinelli Saetta 6.5kg - nice and dry weather
Reilly T325 7.3kg - nice weather but windy
Spa Audax 9.1kg - all weather steel beauty
Pinnacle Dolomite 7.9kg - flat-pedal chainguard thing
M∆SON Definition 8.5kg - off-road ... thing

@ Userfriendly - Seriously, reach out to Berk directly.
It might take a bit for a response as Berk is pushing to the next level now in terms of size and scope, but I am pretty certain that with some patience you can get a very wide array of leather cover color on a Berk saddle.

Those shoes are gorgeous looking, Jure.

Also, I decided I want more Lupina saddles in my life, at least one more, but was wondering about this:

We'll for now produce only black, but already experimenting with different colours, for sure something we'll offer in the future (more colours)
Forgive me for being terribly nosy, but what sort of range of colours do you have in mind? Like, one or two more e.g. white and brown or tan or something like that? Or possibly some way for people to go crazy on colour matching? :D Just throwing the question out there. And either would be great!

Well, basicly we already have a lot of different colours in stock, so we can customize it on request. Here is a nice example of a customized LUKNA saddle:

We can also make it with black Berk logo (or silver or white):

Or custom painted:

We are also working with Israel Cycling Academy, some riders are using our Sito shoes and we produced them some special carbon number holders:

I'm happy to be in contact with the pro cycling world and the people I know from the time when I raced. It is always great to work with such teams, we are also working on some other interesting projects which I unfortunately can't reveal yet.

And our new "employee", it will be used for cutting/trimming carbon parts:

Lovely. Tried ordering through the website a Lupina 132 with white pudding and a Italian flag in the bridge like the one above, but there is no options to choose from on the ordering page that would allow me to do so. How do I go about it? Heck, I couldn't even order a plain white padded saddle unless I missed the obvious. Sent you an email too.

If it is easiest, please reply by private message here, otherwise email is good too.

5 NM, for the round rails at least.
