Color Zones and Materials

Ghost saddles are available in standard leather, Julia leather, nubuck, oiled (greased) nubuck, synthetic Lorica, synthetic Micropell, and sheepskin. The browns range in color across materials so please ask if you're worried about color combinations. 

Leather colors are black, brown, sometimes tan, burgundy, and red. Leather will be slicker than nubuck or oiled nubuck. If you love that slicker feeling and prefer synthetic, consider Micropell
Julia leather is a bit softer with richer colors than standard leather, it will also be less grippy than oiled nubuck
Nubuck isn't listed on the saddle selection page, but you can order it in black and brown. I don't list it because it eventually smooths and shines anywhere there's contact, so becomes like oiled nubuck but not evenly over the product. 
Oiled nubuck is leather that's been roughed to make nubuck, then oiled to make a softer, almost broken-in feel which is also grippier than standard leather. It's the most popular material
Lorica is a soft but tough synthetic available in fun colors, great for a cushy seat or grippy thigh blocks. Also perfect for those who ride in wet weather or looking for a vegan option
Micropell has a heft similar to real leather, very hardy and a bit slicker like natural leather. Also a good option, especially on the flaps, for those who ride in wet weather or want a vegan option
Micronappa is thinner than micropell but thicker than Lorica, so a bit softer, grippier and it shows grain. A good option for flaps or seat, and of course vegans
Real sheepskin is also available now in four colors (white, natural, black). You can choose sheepskin for just the seat or the whole saddle but for long flap models you might consider a "wear" strip to avoid unexpected wear in high motion areas and also because not all sheepskins are big enough for the full flap.
