Brooks' B15 Swallow has been described as the precursor to all modern racing saddles. When it was first patented in 1937 it became immediately popular among the professional racers of the era, and has remained imminently popular amongst cyclists who prefer a sporty, performance-oriented saddle. Like every Brooks saddle, the B15 Swallow shapes itself to its rider over time, ensuring the timeless, customized support that the company's reputation is built upon. And, of course, the B15 Swallow features Brooks' full-grain, premium tanned leather and trademark rivets for the ultimate in comfort, style, and durability.
Of all the components in a quality saddle, none is more important than the leather, and Brooks carefully examines every single piece of leather ensuring that it's the absolute highest quality. For example, while it's important that all stretch is eliminated, the flexibility of the leather must remain intact so that it can conform to the contours of your body and keep its shape for years to come.
Plus, thanks to the built-in pores in its fine leather, Brooks saddles have natural ventilation so they never become clammy and remain comfortable on even the longest rides on the warmest days. Even better, plenty of Brooks customers have used the same Brooks saddle for 30 or more years, a testament to Brooks' craftsmanship and the fine materials in their saddles.
