Road & Mountain Bike Brooks offers a range of racing saddles, all somewhat narrower than their touring and trekking counterparts, for increased pedalling freedom and in order to reduce weight.
Special. Hand Hammered in England by Skilled Craftsmen.
Historically, Brooks Saddles were made with small rivets. Racers in the continental tours would have their Brooks Saddles re-finished with larger copper rivets to increase longevity, as they are gentler on the leather top. This practice was adopted by Brooks decades ago. A single badly-aimed hammer blow can irreparably damage the leather, so the utmost care must be taken during manufacture. Each copper rivet on all Special saddle models is carefully hand hammered by skilled craftsmen.
Originally released in 1979 the Colt won many admirers amongst leather saddle lovers and is said to be one of the most comfortable models to come from the British manufacturer as well as being well known for its durability and strength. The rich colours are obtained through use of natural vegetable dyes, which also helps maintain an environmentally friendly policy.
