Ride a classic, and know no bum pain.
Brooks England drew its inspiration for the Men’s Swift Saddle from its 1890 catalog. This vintage-looking leather bike saddle features firm, high-quality leather that breaks in to fit your bum like leather boots form to fit your feet—say goodbye to having a sore backside. Also, leather is porous and allows for ventilation, so these seats feel comfortably cool on hot days. Because copper is gentler to leather than steel, and because tour racers of yore would have their saddles outfitted with large rivets because that made the seats last longer, the Swift features nine oversized, hand-hammered copper rivets. Choose from titanium or chrome-plated steel rails.

Love this saddle!
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
I had a B17 back in the day, and I liked it, but didn't love it. I decided to take a chance with this model, as it fell between the standard B17, and the more race-worthy Swallow. I have not been disappointed. Almost no soreness, after many long rides. Glad I bought it. Love the look, too.
I like it, but I thought I would point out the leather with chrome rails weighs 510 grams as per Brooks website which is not mentioned on this site. The titanium version is 370g.
The aroma this saddle gives off is wonderful. A bit knotty with a touch of sweetness, and a hint of cow. After a long day of grundel grinding, nothing is more satisfying then running my nose across the ol' Heritage and taking a big whiff.
