Each Kent & Masters saddle has a size and model stamp on the flap. Use this guide to help you decipher the codes:
The two (or thee) digits are the seat size
These might come before or after the letters. In earlier saddles the ½ symbol is used.
15 = 15"
155 = 15½"
16 = 16"
165 = 16½"
17 = 17"
175 = 17½"
18 = 18"
The letters point to the saddle model
PLEASE NOTE: Unless specified below, the codes do not distinguish between S-Series and Original ranges
The stamps do not identify year of manufacture, but where ranges have been recently introduced or discontinued (or codes have changes) we have pointed this out to give you an idea of the saddle’s possible age.
