Florac 2.0, the winner’s saddle

- Categories : Default

At the end of this year we decided to honor a Gaston Mercier product and more precisely one of our saddle models. A saddle which, throughout this season of endurance 2021/2022, was illustrated on the highest steps of the podiums. In total, it has won no less than 12 races and many other great rankings around the world.

The Florac 2.0 saddle

The Florac 2.0 is the sportiest and lightest (2 kg) of our endurance saddles.

It is the result of the search for balance of the rider/horse couple. The rider can alternate effortlessly between sitting and balancing, which favors the distribution of support points on the horse’s back, without overloading its forehand.

The Florac 2.0 is made of double-tanned full grain leather and also perforated leather for optimal evacuation of perspiration. The panels of the Florac 2.0 are made of 3D fabric, more airy, supple and comfortable.

The exclusive carbon tree gives it lightness, finesse and precision to be as close as possible to the horse and reduce the impact of the rider in the functioning of its natural mechanics.

The Florac 2.0 harmonizes efforts and reduces fatigue even after 160 km.
