The Fjödur saddle is made with a revolutionary new carbon fiber boom, which ensures both a low weight of approx. 5 kg., As well as unique anatomically correct flexibility. The production in many layers of carbon fiber means that it is possible to control the way the saddle moves between the horse and the rider. This achieves a better fit and weight distribution, even during riding, where the horse's back constantly changes shape.
The saddle is made with a nice soft seat, in top-quality leather that has really good "grip". It has a medium depth and a rather narrow waist, which gives a close contact to the horse, and therefore helps to optimize the small impacts on the horse.
The knee pads are soft and anatomically designed, so they give the rider a centered position in the saddle, and thus an optimal weight distribution.
The saddle has single-layer saddle flaps, which also contributes to a good and close contact with the horse.
The saddle pads are stuffed with special latex foam in several layers, with different properties. At the bottom towards the horse there is soft material that helps with adjustment and fit, and at the top of the saddle pads a firmer material that ensures a good weight distribution. The saddle pads are wide, thus providing a large support surface, while there is plenty of room for the horse's spine in the wide chamber.
The saddle is particularly suitable for the short Icelandic back, and by virtue of the angle of the bombs, as well as the design of the saddle pads, has a very large shoulder freedom that allows the horse to move freely in the tölt.
The width of the saddle can be changed to 7 different angles, by changing the cup remover (model A).
The Fjödur saddle has been developed in collaboration with experienced professional riders, as well as one of the leading companies in the development of carbon fiber parts for, among other things, the aviation industry.
