Brooks England Cambium All-Weather C13 Saddle
Developed for versatility, this high-quality saddle is equally at home on the road as it is exploring gravel backroads on your bikepacking adventure. Wherever your ride takes you, this model's continuous carbon oval rails ensure that you enjoy a strong hold to your seatpost without any unnecessary weight holding you back. Brooks England has also equipped this version with anodised rivets, which offer additional protection against corrosion during wet riding conditions. Ready for adventure, this saddle's cover features a unique nylon and vulcanised natural rubber top that's UV as well as abrasion resistant. This makes it a great choice of upgrade for riders who enjoy going the extra mile, whatever the weather conditions.
Lightweight All-Weather Saddle
Brooks England's lightest Cambium ever, the C13 is a racing saddle featuring a uniquely flexible vulcanised-rubber top combined with a weight-saving carbon frame. The C13 absorbs shocks and vibrations, keeping the rider in better control than common saddles with a static base and foam padding. Available in two widths, in both standard and carved versions, the C13 is the saddle for performance cycling. A lightweight and durable saddle, the C13 is finished with aluminium rivets for long-lasting use, ready for all rides, all roads and all weathers, requiring no break-in period.

- What are Cambium saddles? Cambium saddles are made from vulcanised natural rubber for flexible performance when riding, reducing shocks and vibrations and offering the rider an improved road feel over traditional foam or gel saddles. This construction of the Cambium mimics the leather saddle construction and therefore offers a similar “hammock” comfort. Cambium is also maintenance-free, meaning you do not need to adjust saddle tension. Likewise, the material we use will not be affected by rain. Cambium saddles are also available in a carved version for riders who seek to reduce pressure on the perineum or desire a more flexible saddle.
- How do I care for and maintain my Cambium? With the cambium range we suggest to check your rivets to see if they are still tight. Over time, due to the vibrations from the road the rivets can loosen, though this is a seldom occurrence. Remember these saddles are hand assembled in the factory, which means all maintenance can be done by hand.
- What can I do if my saddle makes a creaking noise? A creaking noise from your saddle likely means that the nose rails are rubbing somewhere on the rubber top. This can be alleviated with a small dab of grease. Additionally, a noise can be made where the rails meet the backplate by the little black rubber plug. In this case the saddle could be reassembled and a small amount of grease applied at the contact points.
