Product Description

King of the Road

The Flyer and its ladies model Flyer S are classically sprung saddles for long distance trekking and touring. It is directly descending from the B66 Champion, first featured in the 1927 catalogue. Sharing the same leather tops of the B17 models, they combine the comfort of these popular models with the extra suspension granted by two rear springs. Both are available with tubular steel rivets or with hand hammered copper rivets under the names of Flyer Special and Flyer S Special.

This saddle is handmade in England and is guaranteed for 2 years from the date of purchase.

A 10-year extended warranty will be awarded after you have registered this product at www.brooksengland.com/forever

Care Information:

A new saddle should be treated with Brooks Proofide Leather Dressing to help assist the ""breaking-in"" process. Proofide also helps to keep the leather supple as it is carefully formulated from special ingredients to condition, preserve and shower proof your saddle. Brooks Proofide is the only substance that should be used to take care of your saddle.

Very good. Bit pricey.
by Paul M on 21/03/2015

I've been using this saddle for a few months now and I find it excellent. The springs on some olde worlde leather saddles are far too bouncy but this one doesn't bounce at all and has just the right amount of suspension. I like the leather because it stays cool and slippery, although there can be a tendency to slide forward on the saddle, which might not be an issue on a more 'grippy' saddle. Saddles are always a compromise, but this one suits me very well. The biggest drawback is the price - not only, or not even mainly because it costs a lot to buy, but because Brooks saddles are notoriously attractive to thieves, and not easy to secure onto a bike. Nice saddle but I have to admit I don't ride the bike that has this saddle into town because I don't want the saddle nicked and I haven't yet worked out a way to secure it on the bike.
