Based closely on the design of the legendary B17 and ensuring the same kind of long-term comfort, the new Brooks Cambium C17S 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.This women's specific version of the C17 is slightly shorter than the standard C17 and is more suited to the female anatomy.
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.

This saddle is comfortable right out of the box. It did not chafe and cause a lot of pain like the B17 S did for me. However, this saddle has a major drawback and it's that the natural colored C17 saddle will absorb the dye from your pants--especially blue denim jeans. It doesn't matter how old and how many times the jeans have been washed. The saddle will absorb those dyes anyway. I originally had a beautiful cream-colored saddle but after a few rides the saddle absorbed the dye from my blue and black jeans and is now is a dark blue-tinged grey color. The matching Cambium handlebar tape is still cream-colored and does not match the saddle at all. The only reason why I didn't return it is because no other saddle felt as comfortable.
The staining is a major design flaw. The C17 will be bought by many commuters and many of the will be wearing blue jeans. Many of them will have a dark grey saddle after a couple of months of use.
