Albion’s highly popular K2 Jump saddle was launched in the year 2000 and is still recognised as one of the best jumping saddles on the market today. Due to it’s success, Albion launched a brand new sleek design in summer 2014.
The K2 Jump saddle has been designed with a super soft seat and a closer positive leg position for added rider comfort. With a wider panel bearing surface and our Adjusta-Tree technology, our NEW K2 jump is as comfortable for the horse as it is for the rider.
Riders looking for a slightly deeper seat with a very supportive leg love the K2 Jump Saddle.
The Albion Adjusta-Tree™ Story
Did you know that all Albion Trees are made in our British factory in Walsall, West Midlands?
Albion has responded to the needs of the sport horse, creating trees that allow freedom of shoulder movement and panel stability within each and every saddle. Paul Belton, Chairman and Chief Designer at Albion and the in-house design team have taken tree design to new heights of precision and ergonomic performance by using cutting edge computerised technology from the aerospace industry.
Since 1985, all Albion saddles have been manufactured with a factory adjustable saddle tree.
In 2013 Albion launched Adjusta-Tree™. It is believed to be the first British precision engineered adjustable wooden saddle tree.
Adjusta-Tree™ has been specifically designed for adjustment using pressure by any local Albion saddle fitter. The fitting can be altered without damage or distortion to the headplates or rivets of the tree assembly using Albion approved pressure systems, whilst remaining within the saddle.
Adjusta-Tree™ has been robustly engineered to withstand weight loading and pressure induced spread. It has been rigorously tested and proven by Albion’s own ‘in-house’ mechanical spread testing equipment and was further tested and proven by a specialist Independent Engineering Laboratory using approved heavy load testing systems.
Albion’s trees are engineered to be accurate and symmetrical to within +/-2mm complying with the British Standard specification BS6635. Every tree made in Albion’s workshops is quality controlled and checked for accuracy and symmetry on an approved British Standard engineer’s inspection table before leaving the workshop.
