Jerome’s first product was a seat made specifically for mountain bikers, replacing the delicate leather used by traditional European seat makers with a super-tough and light weight material known as “Kevlar”. Operating from a small factory in Southern California (a place they still call home), S.D.G. crafted unique, high-quality seats by hand, slowly carving out a niche among the mountain bike cognoscenti. During the mid 1990’s S.D.G. introduced some of the best-loved, lightest weight saddles, featuring super-light foams, and distinctively stitched covers. Many have become “classics”, and some, like the Bel Air, Satellite and Slim Jim, are still in production. By the end of the ‘90’s S.D.G. seats were standard equipment on most top-shelf mountain bikes.
