Description of Brooks B15 Swallow Select Bend Leather Saddle - natural

This version of the B15 Swallow is made with extra tough, organic leather for high mileage cyclists. It also features hand hammered copper rivets. The B15 Swallow is a faithful reproduction of a saddle specifically conceived with the sporting cyclist in mind, the result being a timeless design widely regarded as the precursor of all modern racing saddles. This saddle was originally patented as long ago as 1937. At that time a great many such Brooks England Saddles were exported to the continent, where they were very popular amongst professional cyclists competing in the various tours and stage races. Today's Swallow still proudly bears the original patent declaration on the tensioning plate beneath the svelte leather upper. This text retains the word “deposé”, the patent application for the Swallow having initially been registered in the Paris patent office.

Many kinds of leather would be utterly unsuitable for saddles, and of the correct kind, very great care has to be exercised to select skins suitable for Brooks Tops. So Brooks England wrote in 1925 and keep doing at Brooks England, although leather stiffness varies slightly from hide to hide. For high mileage cyclists who demand more from their saddles, Brooks England select the toughest hides, sourced from cattle raised at a natural pace on certified organic farms. All Select Saddles feature hand hammered copper rivets.
