Refunds and Returns

Enjoy returns for 30 days!

We're so confident that you'll love your new Bates saddle that we'll even pay for the return delivery!

In the unlikely event that you would like to make a return, please ensure it is:
  1. Within 30 days of purchase;
  2. Unused with the original ticketing, packaging and saddle covers clean and still attached; and
  3. In the original packaging which must be in the original condition. This includes saddles being well-packed in the foam/cardboard to protect the item in transit.
If your item matches all of these conditions, you can contact us to lodge a return request.
    Even sale or clearance items?

    Absolutely, we want you to be happy! You can return sale items unless the product is marked as "Final Sale" (subject to the Australian Consumer Law). We will always let you know if a particular sale or promotion excludes returns.

    How do I return my items?
