Care: Wiping down with a soft cloth or damp sponge is usually enough for day to day care, it is recommended that you keep conditioners away from the seats of the saddles as much as possible, as using some conditioners more often than a couple of times a month can lead to over-softening of the already soft seat-leather, creating wrinkles. When conditioned allow it to dry thoroughly before riding again. MTL Saddles are soft and comfortable from the beginning, and as long as you keep the leather clean and supple, your saddle should last a long time.
