Product Description

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.

Very good. Bit pricey.

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.

Saddles Guide

What are saddles?

The saddle is your bicycle seat.

Who needs a saddle?

Saddles do become worn over time and need replacing, but many people choose to upgrader the standard saddle on their new bike to something more suitable for their needs.

What are the choices?

You can choose saddles in different widths, for male or female riders. There’s not really a clear division between road and mountain bike saddles, so you need to choose a shape and type suited for your physiology as much as your riding style.

What should I buy with them?

Saddles are only one half of the backside comfort equation – reward your rear with a padded set of cycling shorts for full comfort.

Anything else?

There’s no single shape of saddle that’s comfortable for everyone – some people prefer deep padding and lots of cleverly designed pressure relief cut outs. Others favour a flat, no nonsense design.

See our Saddle guide for more.
