Hermès has unveiled a high-tech modular saddle featuring a tree made of carbon and injected thermoplastic.

“This is at the heart of the essence of Hermès, which is about marrying tradition and innovation,” said Hermès artistic director Pierre-Alexis Dumas.

As you can see in on the pictures, this Hermès “Talaris” Saddle is a highly structured saddle that improves on the fit and ride as never before.

It weighs in at around 1.5 kilos lighter than traditional saddles by replacing metal and wood with carbon and titanium to make it lighter and more durable.

“Saddles had not evolved with the times like other sports equipment such as skis and tennis rackets,” said Laurent Goblet, the master saddler who came up with the design. “We had to reinvent the craft.”

The Hermès Talaris Saddle can be adjusted to fit any rider and horse and is available exclusively from Hermès stores worldwide. Price: $9,100.
