Ti + leather = a modern classic.
Top your two-wheeled masterpiece off with a worthy saddle: the Brooks B15 Swallow Ti Saddle. A malleable leather cover quickly molds itself into a perfect reproduction of posterior curves—much better than an office copy machine, and much more supple. Touched by expert English craftsmen, the B15 Swallow reeks of history, quality, comfort, and performance.

- Q & A
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
I purchased this saddle recently for my 1991 steel racing bike. I was a little apprehensive about "breaking in" a saddle as I use Selle Italia SuperFlo SLR on my modern bike. I conditioned the saddle per Brooks instructions and I found the saddle comfortable (no numbing) from the very first ride. Approximately 280km with the Swallow Titanium and very happy I made the purchase.
Best saddle ever
Cyclist for almost 60 years-I'm 65, ride two hours a day, have owned (still own) two other Brooks saddles, three Fiziks, and others not worthy of mention. At some point in life, beauty, history, and comfort beat out tech and weight.
comfort for 24 hours
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
I picked one of these up about a year ago and it's now made it onto my 24 hour race rig. Typically brooks saddles are too heavy for such a ride but this thing bridges the gap nicely with unparalleled comfort.
