Brooks England has been building its traditional leather bicycle saddles for more than 100 years, and this summer the brand is introducing something completely new.
The Cambium C17 is made from uniquely flexible natural rubber and organic cotton, enhanced by a thin layer of structural textile for added toughness. Unlike the traditional Brooks saddles that require patience before they break in, the vulcanized, waterproof top of the Cambium follows a riders’ movements, is immediately comfortable and maintenance-free.
Before the saddle’s summer release, Brooks is inviting the public to register to be one of 100 individuals worldwide to be the first to try it. They will ride the saddle for a few months and give feedback for the Brooks website. The individuals selected will be as diverse a group as possible, with one third being long-time Brooks saddle riders, one-third who use both Brooks and other saddles, and one-third who have never ridden a Brooks.
Visit the Brooks Cambium website before May 17 to register. Even if you’re not selected as a tester, you’ll still get a 10 percent discount in the Brooks online store.
