Manufactured in the UK, a tough 5mm thick leather top is stretched from a thin metal cantle plate at the rear, over the rails to the nose piece and secured by rivets. This durable leather top eventually wears to the shape of the user’s ‘sit bones’ for a superior riding experience. With the right leather-care a Brooks saddle can easily last a lifetime of riding.
It may seem counterintuitive, but firm and less cushioned saddles are proven to reduce friction while cycling which protects against chafing and rubbing. Should the hammock-like design of the saddle start to sag too much, the leather can be re-tensioned by tightening a bolt in the nose piece.

Treat with Proofide every 6 months or so to keep the leather supple and to prevent it drying out. Proofide is carefully formulated from special ingredients to condition, preserve and shower-proof your saddle. Proofide is the only substance that Brooks recommend using to take care of your saddle.
