WTB Limited Edition NorCal Mountain Bike League Saddle

This is a great-lookin’ saddle, with an even better story and cause!

“WTB has teamed up with the NorCal High School Cycling League to introduce a limited edition saddle where a portion of the proceeds contributes to the Buddy Newman Scholarship Fund, which in turn covers race entry fees for high school athletes throughout the racing season.

With over 1200 kids actively participating and racing in the NorCal League between grades 9 to 12, the league has provided an introduction to the mountain biking community for an ever-increasing amount of high school students. The NorCal League introduces riders of all skill levels to the benefits of a lifetime of mountain biking and helps support the next generation of mountain bikers.

The WTB NorCal League saddle is a Team-level Volt 142 saddle, which features titanium rails and our top-tier DNA Padding. It’s available for purchase through WTB.com for a retail price of $129.95 and a portion of the proceeds will be contributed to the Buddy Newman Scholarship Fund. We only made 100 of these California-inspired saddles, so they won’t be available for long! ”
