Genuine craftmanship empowered through innovation and design to deliver bespoke leather bicycle saddles and accessories.
Kontour offers one-offs or small series of handmade leather bicycle accessories. We restore and upgrade classic bicycle saddles, we create custom saddles, handlebar tape and matching accessories like bags to make your bike(s) stand out from the crowd.
Kontour combines authentic leather craftsmanship with digital design: traditional techniques for leather crafting go hand in hand with rapid prototyping techniques such as the laser cutting and 3D printing of elastic inserts. Thanks to the integration of the digital processes, it remains affordable for the customer to buy unique, handmade saddles. Kontour’s service attracts customers from all over the world; from Canada to New Zealand and the countries in between.
Instead of bringing completely new saddles into circulation, Kontour often renovates and optimises old saddles, giving the cyclist not only a functional saddle but also restoring its emotional value.
