CAIR vs. FLOCKING

Hello! I know there are many threads out there about CAIR, but I couldn't find one about the pricing. What happens if a CAIR panel has to be replaced? Will that be more expensive then it would be to get a flocked saddle restuffed every year? Thanks!

Don't know, as I've never had to have one replaced, and I've had Wintecs a heck of a long time.

I have no idea on price, but I have heard the word "very expensive" thrown around. A saddle fixer would have to open up the panels and remove the CAIR air bags, then stuff it with wool. Its not like when you have a saddle reflocked and they made two small slits on the side and stuff wool back in there.

I believe the OP is referring to having a CAIR panel replaced, not replaced with wool. I'm subscribing because I'm wondering this as well.

I heard it is about $100 to get your saddle restuffed so I imagine it would be much more than that to replace the CAIR panels, but you wouldn't have to replace them every year, so I would come out cheaper to get CAIR, right?

I think that if your CAIR is still under warranty, then you can send your saddle back in and replace it, but if it isnt, then the money is going to have to come out.

I read around somewhere that some people have had theirs replaced for $100. You'd probably have to look online if you want to send one to someone, and get an estimate from them, or look at your local saddle repair.
