Tour de Force Freedom Challenge Special Edition

Fresh out of the workshop

Murray Orthoped saddles have increasingly become the choice of a number of Freedom Challenge riders.

Thanks to valuable feedback from riders, we have been able to incorporate some refinements in the Limited Edition Freedom Challenge saddles.

  • The monococque shell now includes Kevlar in addition to the carbon fibre. Bullet proof.
  • The rails have been beefed up and the rail fixing system improved.
  • The sheep nappa leather remains. It's natural and comfortable.
And no, they do not come with a sheepskin cover. You won't need that, but the sheep will.

Naturally, these saddles carry the full lifetime guarantee.

Kevin Davie GannaRide

Kevin Davie has just completed his Ganna Ride, 3520km from Beit Bridge to Cape Point.

A remarkable ride by a truly remarkable man, well done Kevin.

Yes, you guessed it, he was on a Murray Orthoped Competition saddle..

Not much to add to that.

The advantages of riding a Murray Orthoped saddle on the Freedom Challenge.......

.....are obvious.

There are some lesser-known ones though:

  • In-veld coffee shop
  • Full service at any hour of the day
  • Priority free access to long-range, after hours bike mechanic 24/7
  • Honourary membership of the Prince Albert Dikwiel Kommando
If you think you qualify, please contact Johann Rissik. If you don't know the number, then you probably don't ;)

@Glen, if you meet her along the route you're in trouble.

Sheepskin saddle covers

No, I don't make those, but there could be merit in covering a sub-standard saddle with sheepskin once it has already rubbed you raw. Might help.

Getting a decent saddle in the first place would enable both you and the sheep to keep your respective skins.

Blazing a path across the country....

Andrew Barnes is blazing a path towards the end of the cycling leg of the Freedom Challenge.

He roared through Prince Albert in the teeth of the huge cold front, all smiles and impeccably behaved.

So? So he's on a Murray Orthoped saddle and when asked how the saddled performed his comment was.....

" It's a saving grace"

And that from a man who knows his @rse from his elbow.
