THE STORY BEHIND

Conceived in the early 1960s, the 90 was designed as a demonstration of IDEALE’s outstanding expertise.

The emblematic Idéale 90 model with a combined titanium and aluminium frame was born at the end of the 1970s, following the worldwide success of the Idéale 90 model and the rise of titanium in industry, particularly aeronautics. Since its launch in 1964, the Idéale 90 saddle had already been available with a spring-quality steel frame or an aluminium, Duralumin or Fortal frame, in what was then the lightest version on the market.

The manual break-in of the leather was developed jointly with Daniel Rebour, a sports journalist, experienced cyclist and friend of the Berthet family,

The sportiest model in the catalogue, it equipped the Peugeot team for the Tour de France, and reached the podium with Roger Pingeon in 1967.
