Brooks C17 Cambium Saddle

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.

      Comments about Brooks C17 Cambium Saddle:

      A bit sensitive to position. Get yourself in the "sweet spot" and it's very comfortable. Make sure your sit bones are on the wide part, if you're too far forward it won't be comfortable. It's softer than you might think, looks and feels hard but it has the right amount of "give."

      Appears to be optimized for road riding, may or may not work for your mountain bike depending on how you sit and how much you move around. If it's not working for you, adjust your handlebar position, it might help. Has shock-absorbing properties, which is nice on the trail. Reasonable price compared with other premium saddles.

            Comments about Brooks C17 Cambium Saddle:

            I've always been a big fan of Brooks saddles but because I ride in less than ideal conditions frequently, their standard leather offerings were always a turn off. Enter the C17--super comfy right out of the box, looks great and best of all, requires no maintenance. I've been using mine on a rigid, steel framed fat bike and can say without a doubt that it is the most comfortable saddle I've ever used. I've got 1000+ miles on mine and it seems to be plenty durable. If you're a fan of the leather Brooks saddles, these are definitely worth a look. My only complaint about them is that I now want one on every bike I own!

                Comments about Brooks C17 Cambium Saddle:

                I purchased this saddle with confidence because Brooks are always phenomenal. I own a B17 on my touring bike and wanted to give this a try on my road bike. Very satisfied after several rides over 100 miles. It is heavier than expected but I am not a weight weenie, so I'm happy with it.

                Comments about Brooks C17 Cambium Saddle:

                This saddle replaced the more "modern" road saddle I had on my bike. I've been riding it for about a month and it's been great. There was no "break-in" period to bare through like with other Brooks saddles, it was comfortable from day one. The overall design with the rubber/cotton top is definitely unique and I've gotten many compliments. It's definitely heavier than my previous saddle, but its not a race saddle; nor is my bike a race bike, so it works out perfectly. Very happy with this purchase!
