DragonSaddles can eventually wear out on the bottom but it takes years. Order a new one or a pair of bench fasteners when that time approaches. You might bond one of the inserts that have grip to the bottom as a way to renew non-slip properties at no cost. They are extremely comfortable. The  2019 Super Saddles are also quite durable if cared for properly. See "care instructions".

​Shipping in the usa is only $4 each for an order of 4 of the SS-L2, SS-L, SS-L3, SS-3, SS-4, SS-5, SS-AG, DS-S, DS-W, DS-C or any combination.

DS-S Dragon Saddle  $46, The classic and original Dragon Saddle with two removable neoprene inserts for  adjustable comfort. This is luxury for very long practices.

SS-6  All Purpose Sprint and Practice Saddle in one, $40, yes, $40 each for the team discount from $55. You found it! The SS-6 is as comfortable as the Classic Dragon Saddle and as effective in a race as any of the SS models. 15mm IDBF maximum all grip neoprene throughout with 7" of Teflon on top, polymer bench clips included. No imaging on top. Imaging, team logos and labels are on the outside of the bench clips. Design refinements were advised by Windy City DBC at the 2021 US Club Crew Nationals. Like many of you, this is a winner.

SS-L3 Sprint Saddle  $55, very light and thin, only 10mm, complete with fastener #3 quick release buckles and webbing, and imaging choices from the Home Page or your digital team file. The image/grip half of the top is a higher density than bare neoprene and not suitable for sensitive rear ends. 

SS-3  Sprint Saddle $60, 15mm, complete with QR fasteners and imaging. Quick Release fasteners take a few times to become proficient at fastening during a boat launch. The image side has a harder feel than bare neoprene.

SS-4 Sprint Saddle  $70, 15mm, complete with ultra convenient fastener #1 proprietary Polymer Clips with embedded subsurface bridges, all graphic options, three layers of  neoprene, full maximum IDBF legal, Image/grip top half is relatively uncomfortable for distances beyond a few minutes. 

SS-5 Sprint Saddle $45  For heavy paddlers. By far, this is not the most comfortable saddle. It is longer, has a very aggressive and solid grip portion that will really lock down your inertia at the right time.

SS-GG Super Saddle  $60 plus the bench fastening system selected  below. Polymer clips are $16. This saddle is large for practices and longer sessions.

DS-AG all grip plus choice of optional bench fastener $38.
