Float like a butterfly
In 1985, upon introducing a women's specific bicycle frame design to the industry, Georgena Terry created a company destined to become a household name among women cyclists throughout the world. True to her passion for cycling gear that specifically addresses the fit and needs of women, she expanded the line to include saddles, the primary touch-point while riding. And while the company has expanded and the line of saddles has grown exponentially, the Butterfly Carbon Saddle retains all of the characteristics embodied in the original Butterfly that is loved the world over.
The original women's saddle, the Butterfly, was designed in 1999. While it has gone through revisions over the years, the basic design and profile have remained the same. There are now several versions of the Butterfly each one with unique features.
Terry's Butterfly Carbon Saddle was placed on Carbon rails. Unique to the saddle is the oval shape of the rails. They measure 9.6mm high by 7mm wide. This shape provides extra durability and stiffness. The carbon rails also make it the lightest of all the Butterfly saddles. The base is the same multi-density injection molded foam featured in the entire Butterfly line placing stiffer padding over the paddles and softer foam along the full length channel and cut-out to relieve pressure against soft tissue areas. Additionally, a thin layer of gel is laid over the padding for a little extra comfort during long rides.
Covered in real leather with an embossed butterfly pattern, the saddle is sure to turn heads perched on your prized steed.
The Terry Butterfly Carbon Saddle measures 262mm long by 155mm wide at the paddle. It weighs 218grams and is available in the color Black.

Terry Butterfly Carbon Women's Saddle
- Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
Three years ago I fractured the left "sit bone" and I have been dealing with constant discomfort since. No more! This year I decided to eliminate that after last month when I bought a 2016 Salsa Carbon Beargrease fatbike. The stock seat wasn't cutting it fo me so after much online research I narrowed it down to the Terry brand. I have to admit the price for the Carbon seat made me pause but for two reasons I decided "what the heck just DO IT"
For openers I have my dream carbon bike and if I can shave the weight I will but not to sacrifice comfort. The Terry Butterfly Carbon seat just seemed to be the answer. It's a beautiful saddle, I immediately saw the design with the flat seat and cutout could address my issues. The saddle appeared to have ample padding too. I received the saddle in a matter of days with their speedy free shipping. I noticed the beauty of this saddle as soon as I took it out of the box and sure enough the padding is nice. This saddle weighs less than half a pound too !
Today I got to test it for the first ride on it (third day after receiving it) on a 15 mile group bike ride that has its share of bumps on our Michigan streets and my local bike path at Sterling State Park and back home.
I didn't get very far to realize this was the perfect saddle after all .. NO PAIN ð¤
This saddle is worth every penny because now I can enjoy my rides on my new fatbike much more.
Thank you Terry and thank you Backcountry for your excellent customer service. The day after I received the saddle I got a phone call from Backcountry rep Suzie asking what I thought of the saddle. In all of the years I have bought online no company has ever taken the time to reach out to me to ask if I was totally satisfied. Gotta say I am impressed.
