Brooks of England is an old-fashioned company, but its latest product is decidedly high-tech. The Cambium saddle is a new range of saddles that is made from Vulcanized natural rubber and organic cotton, enhanced with a thin layer of structural textile on top for added resilience and the legendary Brooks longevity. The uniquely flexible, maintenance-free, waterproof top is designed to follow the rider’s movements for immediate comfort and ease of use.
After first soliciting 100 people to sample the new saddle and provide feedback, Brooks is celebrating the launch of the Cambium by creating a limited edition of 1,000 of the C17 and 200 of the ladies C17s that are on sale now. Each will be etched with the series number on the front rivet of each saddle to commemorate this new generation of Brooks saddles.
To the eye, the C17 may appear quite racy in its shape and lines, which indeed it is. A saddle you can really settle into, the geometry and dimensions are based closely on that of our most recognizable model, the B17, ensuring the same timeless comfort mile after mile.
The C17s is slightly shorter than the C17 and more suited to the female anatomy.Tweet Print
