Quality testing at Bates Saddles far exceeds industry standards with stringent quality controls placed on each saddle that leaves the factory.

No expense is spared on evaluating how the saddles perform, employing external expertise in the areas of physics and engineering to conduct independent testing. The Bates Saddles trademark is an assurance of unsurpassed quality, innovation and the radically different performance each rider can expect. Only when the saddles pass our stringent quality controls are they deemed worthy of the Bates name.
