Saddle fit *WINTEC*

I am pretty positive this saddle does not fit, but what size gullet should I get? Narrower or wider?

Thanks

It is the most authentic looking "leather" wintec that I have ever seen then.

It is probably a Bates... which also has the adjustable gullet tree and they are made by the same maker as Wintec. The names are pretty much interchangeable now.

If it is a true Wintec, that's pretty cool! I've never seen one in that color.

It's a Wintec, I can see the C-air logo from the back. You need the interchangeable gullet kit they make to size & fit this saddle. Otherwise you & I and anyone else on here is just guessing.

Wintecs are only synthetic, so if that saddle is leather it cannot be a Wintec. Correct me if I am wrong, but I am 100% positive that Wintecs are only synthetic.

Looks synthetic to me, in fact looks just like my friend's wintec. Wintec is a synthetic Bates I believe.

As per your oringinal question the gullet looks like it fits fine, the back is hard to tell because the picture is dark. How many fingers can you fit under the saddle. Also if you are able to ride in it what does the sweat pattern look like.
