The new design of the 2Gs® saddle revolutionises all sensations with its concentrate of innovation. Contact, comfort, lightweight, flexibility... Prepare yourself for a shock when you try this saddle that has enjoyment in its genes.
CWD's R&D department has worked hard to redesign the 2Gs®, jewel of the Dynamick® range.
It took a whole year to redesign and improve it. The result: a more responsive 2Gs® saddle with closer contact and improved comfort for both the horse and rider. A more refined and esthetic line.
The 2Gs® combines new technologies and new materials, reflecting our obsession with sport that defines your expectations so well. Its carbon Kevlar Dynamick® saddle tree forms a backbone optimizing the flexible and rigid parts of the saddle which are all integrated in a non-structural component.
Every element of assembly (stirrup bars, seat, etc.) is directly inserted into the composite frame for closer contact between the rider and his horse.
Stirrup leather keepers and piping (cantle and seat) can now be customized on the 2Gs® saddle. You can choose between 11 colours, from the most discrete to the flashiest.
Panel screws are now integrated to improve saddle fit.
The carbon reinforcement has a new look with 3D curves emphasising stirrup leather keepers and the location of the rear stop.
The carbon reinforcement is fixed to the tree with leather for more flexibility in the flap and easy girthing.
New integrated stirrup leather keepers to avoid extra thickness, lined with colored leather.
Cantle guard screws have been concealed with colored piping.
In order to protect the leather, it is essential to initially oil your saddle. At CWD, we carry out this process before delivering your made-to-measure saddle. No additional treatment is needed, and you can use it as soon as you receive it.
Beware of the risk of staining white clothes, especially during the first few uses.
Our accessories are delivered without having been oiled. Apply a large quantity of CWD oil or conditioner evenly and repeat if necessary to obtain the desired suppleness. Use the CWD glove to massage any excess conditioner into the leather. If possible, let the leather absorb the CWD conditioner for 24 hours in a well-ventilated room. Natural leathers will darken before lightening slightly to reach their definitive shade.
Before oiling or greasing your accessories, make sure to try them on your horse first. Accessories which have been greased cannot be returned.
The leathers used in saddle making are living materials and must be regularly cared for. Care treatments should be adapted to use and must take the climate and the season into account.
Here are two key steps to ensure your leathers remain comfortable and beautiful.
1. Clean, after each use using a sponge and CWD liquid glycerine soap to keep the leather supple, pleasant and high-performing.
2. Apply CWD conditioner at least twice a month on all the equipment, using the CWD glove. Don’t forget the stitching.
In summer, after each use, the leather needs to be treated to compensate for and repair the drying out caused by the sun and high temperatures.
In winter, a heated area is needed to combat the ambient humidity, which is damaging to its lifespan and can be a source of mould.
Avoid the following
As far as possible, avoid cleaning your leathers with products which contain solvents which will prematurely discolour the saddle and will dry out the leather fibres.
If your saddle has been in contact with water, dry the leather carefully by placing it in a warm room. Once dry, clean it and apply the CWD conditioner.
Do not grease a saddle which has not been cleaned first: you risk letting the dirt penetrate into the leather, damaging its appearance and shine.
Use a wire brush to get out dried dirt then wash by hand with woolite and air dry.
