Wear and Tear Conditions

Saddles on bicycles are subject to wear due to their function. The rate of wear will depend on care and maintenance, the bike’s usage and the environment it is exposed to such as rain, mud, dust, and sand. The saddles do require regular care and maintenance, but all components will eventually reach the end of their serviceable life, depending on conditions and intensity of use. In addition, this warranty specifically excludes surface finishes and cosmetic treatments including but not limited to surface finishes and decals.

The following Union Sport product are subject to wear due to their function and are not covered for wear as described under this warranty:

• Normal wear and tear

• Improper installation or assembly

• Improper follow-up maintenance

• Damage or failure due to accident, misuse, abuse, neglect or improper usage

• Labor charges for part replacement or changeover

Saddle Care

Union Sport encourages our customer to clean the saddle of dirt and sweat after each riding session. It is advisable to use a soft cloth moistened with water and a little neutral soap. Leave it in the air to dry, away from direct sunlight. Do not use solvent-base products (oils or creams) on the saddle covering as they could cause cracking or detaching of the covering. The loss of color, altering or abuse in covering materials is typically not covered by the warranty, as this is normally caused by UV rays, sweat, heat, and moisture.

Weight Limitation

Each Union Sport product is designed and tested to support a structural weight limit. In addition for more aggressive riding such as Downhill Mountain biking or any other riding that might compromise the structural integrity of the saddle; the rider should not exceed over 250lbs.

Carbon Fiber Saddle Limitation

Union Sport saddles are made to be lightweight, and are not suitable for all riders and all possible uses. Any deep scratches or gouges in the saddle body or rails can weaken the saddle, resulting in failure and causing serious personal injury or death.

Damage to the shell is difficult to visually identify. If the external shell surface is dented, frayed, gouged, deeply scratched, fractured, chipped or otherwise damaged, the component should not be ridden and should be replaced. If a saddle has suffered a crash or impact, even if no damage is visible, Union Sport or an authorized Union Sport dealer should inspect the product.

For your safety, Union Sport recommends this product be replaced after 5 years of use.
