The handsome Swift is the youngest leather racing saddle in the Brooks range, featuring delicately hand-skived lower flaps, where a thin stripe of the leather top surface is cut back, thus exposing the lighter coloured suede beneath, which makes for an attractive visual accent and greater comfort when pedalling. The large copper rivets at the nose and rear are also hammered by hand, commensurate with our usual high level of attention to detail. A perfect saddle for racing or fast touring in the forward position.
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.
