Brooks has been a household name in cycling for over 100 years, renown for their quality craftsmanship, attention to detail and finish. No matter what your cycling passion, be it road, mountain, track or touring, whether you cycle competitively, for fitness or just recreationally, adding a Brooks saddle to your bike will change the way you ride, and with their broad range of saddles finding the right fit is made easy.
Here are some of my favourites from the Brooks range.
Brooks Team Pro Titanium
Our Price: $289.95 Weight: 430g Class: Sporting
Now at first glance, in a world obsessed with weight, some may prematurely disregard this saddle as an option, however being that you spend the majority of your time training, as opposed to racing, it would seem to make sense to use a saddle that meets your every day cycling requirements, whether you compete, train for fitness or the sheer pleasure of it, the saddle is where we spend the majority of our time. The Team Pro Titanium is based on a saddle design which has been in production for over 50 years, the Team Pro. The titanium rail version simply makes use of a little modern-age technology on a proven design to make it even better, whilst reducing the overall weight by 100 grams when compared with the copper plated steel version. What about comfort you may say… the Brooks website is filled with testimonials from very satisfied customers, cyclists who simply won't use anything else. Although what an athlete and a recreational cyclist would describe as comfort maybe two totally different things, comfort seems to be the word on everyone's lips. Your choice for using a Brook may be uniquely different, however you have to ride a Brook saddle to really appreciate one. Finish is something that you can't help but notice, you won't be able to take your eyes of it, it's like that with Brooks products, it's a love affair that's just hard to break. It's a real attention grabber, down to the impeccably finished leather, treated with natural dyes, the hand-hammered rivets, embossings and the Brook's metal name plate. When you've held a Brooks saddle in your hand you know you are holding a quality product. You see, with so many saddles in the Brooks line-up, the odds are that you will find the right saddle for you, as far as sports saddles go, the Team Pro Titanium is my personal favourite, it might not be for everyone, but if you take the time to look, you will find a Brooks saddle that's right for you.

Our Price: $129.95 Weight: 1050g Class: City & Heavy Duty
The Brooks England B66 and B66 S (for women) is one of Brooks most popular saddles with a history dating back to 1927. Marketed as a City saddle, designed for riders who ride with a more upright position. The B66 to me is best described as an all-round comfort saddle which will suit your needs whether you commute long distances to work, have a flat-bar fitness bike, fixie or cruiser and require more comfort than traditional saddles have to offer. Nothing quite compares to a sprung saddle and the Brook's double-rail sprung saddle is no exception delivering supreme comfort, many cyclists still find that even the best gel or foam options lack the long-term comfort and durability that a Brook sprung saddle offers. As with all Brooks England products, the B66 is superbly finished, it's without a doubt my all-out personal favourite in as much as styling, comfort and affordability is concerned, it simply checks all the boxes. Features like high-quality leather upper, coloured with natural dyes, embossing on saddles sides, metal Brooks name plate, hand-hammered rivets, and beautifully chromed springs and saddle bag loops. So if your gel or foam padded saddle is letting you down, grab yourself a B66, you won't be disappointed in it's performance and as an added bonus, it will give your bike a timeless face-lift.

Brooks Challenge Tool Bag
Our Price $95.95 Weight: 125g
One thing I love about the Brooks range aside from it's timeless beauty, is their accessories, let's face it, small finishing touches make the difference and the Brook's Challenge Tool Bag is no exception. Designed for use with any saddle with saddle loops, this cleverly designed tool bag has a securing strap which encircles the tools it carries, thus preventing them from rattling. Beautifully finished off in a range of natural dye colours and embossed with the Brooks logo, it's a must for any Brooks saddle owner. You can view the Brooks Challenge Tool Bag by clicking here.
Brooks Slender Leather Grips
Our Price $88.95 Weight: 118g (pair)
An excellent compliment for any vintage, classic, speeder or flat-bar fixie. These superbly crafted grips have an aluminium shell, wrapped in tanned leather and held in place by precision bar-end clamps. Both the bar-end and leather tape bears the Brooks name. The Slender Leather Grips combined with a Brooks Saddle and Tool bag add character and old-world charm to any bike and makes a statement about the person who rides it.
