Based closely on the design of the legendary B17 and ensuring the same kind of long-term comfort, the new Brooks Cambium is made from vulcanized natural rubber and organic cotton canvas enhanced by a thin layer of structural textile for added resilience and legendary Brooks longevity. The uniquely flexible, maintenance-free, waterproof top is designed to follow the rider's movements to deliver immediate comfort and ease of use.The new construction of Cambium Saddles works like a hammock and delivers immediate comfort while absorbing vibration and shock, performance traditionally found only with natural leather saddles.The Cambium owes its remarkably natural look and feel to a woven organic cotton textile. After the vulcanization process, the cotton is then treated with Brooks Numac to completely protect the saddle against the elements.
Cambium Saddles are designed to be ready for use out of the box, requiring no initial or ongoing care or maintenance. This saddle is assembled from replaceable parts and requires no special tools for servicing.

I like this saddle a lot. It looks good! However, I am a large rider (6'4", 220lbs) and its narrowness is uncomfortable in certain situations. I don't mind it when I have bibs on, but it is very uncomfortable in jeans on a commute. I have switched to the C-17 and am much more comfortable.
Did a 35 km ride in this saddle mounted on XC bike. Around 20km started to feel pain and pressure in the sit-bone area. By the end of the ride, pain increased and caused pressure to the soft tissue. The C15, and C17 both have very round-ish top, which causes it to have less effective sitting area. So, the 140mm C15 actually has much less width than a flat 140mm saddle. Also, the cutout in the middle causes too much flex when compared to the non-cutout version. Heard somewhere, sit-bone width + 25mm= proper saddle width. So, this is too narrow for me. Gave four star because it is an excellent saddle for people with narrow sit-bone.
