The single flap version of the X-D2K features a new, deeper, saddle that brings the rider closer to the horse without, however, cramping movement.
The base at the rear of the seat is appreciably broader as compared with traditional dressage saddles and is fitted with 2 enlarged membranes obtained applying a new technological procedure (OTI, or “over tree injection”) entailing the injection from above of the elastic material inside of the tree the “ESS” ergonomic stitching system is the first of its kind and ensures improved comfort for the horse.

Tree: Stamped "M" for Medium
The saddle features Prestige's innovative X-Technology, to offer riders the required closeness while providing comfort to the horse. Elastic membranes have been applied to the saddle tree that are filled with a special shock-absorbing material in the area corresponding to the lower hip bone of the rider. Through its membranes arrangement, Prestige offers riders a deeper seat, but without making them “sink” into it. Thanks to the elastic action of the (in-out) membrane the movement of the horse is not restricted. Another key novelty of the X-Technology, one that brings rider and horse into close contact, are the panels. The normal panels, stuffed with layers of hide, felt, sponge cloth and synthetic flocking material, have been replaced with new panels made from hide, the customary synthetic flocking material, and a new honeycomb material that is highly elastic. These anatomically shaped panels guarantee maximum freedom of movement for the horse, especially in the shoulder area.
