C17 CAMBIUM SADDLE
The Brooks C17 Cambium Saddle is made from the same vulcanized natural rubber and organic cotton canvas as they use for the rest of the ever popular Cambium range. The additional flexibility of the vulcanised rubber top absorbs bumps and vibrations from the road, functioning much in the way of a shock absorbing seat post.
Over the course of its entire 150 year history, Brooks has built a reputation not only on incredible quality products, but on the constant drive to innovate and experiment. The Cambium represents the newest, and arguably most interesting development in bicycle saddles since 1866. The vulcanised natural rubber offers a natural feel and flexibility unlike any foam or gel saddles on the market and with its organic cotton top offers extraordinary comfort by allowing the entire surface of the Cambium to move and flow naturally with the movement of the rider for better pedalling and control.
Furthermore, a distinct dampening effect is delivered by the classic Brooks "hammock" construction, reducing road vibrations and keeping the rider comfortably in the saddle. This combination multiplies the performance advantage over long distance, producing unparalleled comfort
after kilometre 60, 100, 160, and beyond.

Brooks Company History: Brooks England was founded in 1866 by John Boultbee Brooks, originally to manufacture leather harnesses and tackle for horses. Legend has it that the death of Mr. Brooks’ horse prompted him to seek alternative transportation, trying out the recent two-wheeled invention, the bicycle. He fell in love but found the wooden saddle excruciating. He vowed to make it more comfortable and so the Brooks leather saddle was born.
Today Brooks manufacture a wide range of bicycle accessories from backpacks, bicycle panniers and saddle bags to helmets, poncho’s and wallets and to this day all Brooks Leather Saddles are still hand made by skilled craftspeople using traditional methods in Birmingham, England and the fundamental design of the saddles is unchanged. While the new Cambium range, helmets and bags are all made in Italy.
