The B15 Swallow is a faithful reproduction of a bicycle saddle originally patented by Brooks in 1937 at a time when Brooks Saddles were exported to the continent for professional cyclists competing in the Tour de France and other races. Today's Swallow still bears the original patent declaration “deposé” having been registered in the Paris patent office. The timeless design of the Swallow remains virtually unchanged today, and is finished with machined rivets and a chromed steel frame.
Over almost a century and a half, Brooks England has grown from a small workshop to a byword in quality craftsmanship. Back in 1865, John Boultbee Brooks left his hometown of Hinckley in Leicestershire with just £20 in his pocket.
