The company Brooks was founded in Birmingham, England, in 1866. The handmade saddles, panniers and other Brooks products are an absolute phenomenon in the cycling world. They use nothing but the best materials, so you can be absolutely sure that you have out and out quality when you buy Brooks.
The products show that the people of Brooks have an eye for detail. Pure craftsmanship. The best materials are selected to achieve an end product; they only use the best part of a cow hide. Brooks saddles truly become 'personal' after a period of time, because the saddle shapes to the buttocks of the rider. Brooks handmade leather saddles offer the rider optimum sitting comfort. Even on hot days, because leather breathes. Furthermore, the saddle will have a long life, and sometimes outlasts the bike itself. Provided it is looked after properly of course.
