General Information
Labeled (yellow sticker) on the inside: IDEALE "titane" | Gain de poids: 43% sur acier. My titanium Idéale 90 weights 406g and its (titanium) clamp 91g. Respectively 29% and 44% lighter than their steel counterparts. The classic steel 90 weights 575g and its (steel) clamp 163g. Respectively 42% and 79% heavier than their titanium counterparts. So the IDEALE assertion (43% lighter than steel) refers to the metallic parts of the saddle (steel vs titanium), not the global weight ("only" 33% lighter, clamp included).

Brand Information(click to expand)
Tron & Berthet made saddles branded Ideale, BIM, and Norex.

Katia Dayde: "BIM was a sub-brand of Tron & Berthet, as Norex. The family Berthet told us that for BIM it was a way of selling lowest quality leathers. Norex was dedicated to North Europe market as Mme Berthet came from Belgium, they developed some specific models for this market."
