The undoubted supremacy of Brooks Saddles is largely due to their irreproachable quality in every detail. The leather is absolutely of the best quality obtainable and is thoroughly adapted to its purpose. The attention subsequently bestowed upon its manipulation, enables it not only to take, but to retain the shape and form so essential to comfort. This retention of shape, and even improvement after a few months use (period known as break-in time), is the crucial test of a leather top, and is one of the chief characteristics of Brooks Saddles. Remember, a broken-in Brooks is the only saddle whose shape becomes truly yours.
Another, and even more important feature peculiar to leather, is that of porosity. Invisible pores in the animal hides provide natural ventilation. Brooks saddles are always cool to ride, thereby providing greater levels of comfort, even on the longest rides, on the warmest days.
The springs and frames are still mostly made at the Company's own works in England and are scientifically designed to obtain maximum elasticity and comfort, combined with strength and durability. The workmanship and finish of Brooks Saddles have never been equalled. Every process and detail receives careful attention, whilst the complete saddle imparts additional tone to any bicycle.
