We ship worldwide.
I would like to have a Berk saddle but I don’t know which model will fit me the most? Can I test your saddle before final purchase?
Please have a look at our saddle configurator and read the saddle descriptions.
We do offer also TEST saddles inside EU, in that case please apply for testing saddles.
For a test saddle you have to make a 200 EUR deposit. When we get the test saddle back we return you 150 EUR. We do charge 50 EUR for the two week saddle rent which includes shipping costs in both ways (DPD return label included with the test saddle).
If you decide to buy a new saddle, then the entire deposit of 200 EUR (for the test saddle) will be considered as a part of the purchase price for a new saddle.

There is small movement in the saddle clamp, I tightened it with 5Nm, what can I do?

Yes of course, we can change the wron out cover. It costs 50 € + shipping. Please mention that if you aren’t from EU that there might be extra costs with customs and shipping, in that case please contact us before shipping to us.
Can I use more than 5 Nm to tighten the seat guide?
All our seats are ISO tested (ISO4210) and since some clamps may damage the seat, we recommend a maximum of 5 Nm. In some cases you can go up to 12Nm (if the clamp clamps the saddle rails from both sides at the same area)
