The accessories and equipment manufactured by Brooks England are handmade with ancient know-how and techniques in noble materials such as leather, cotton or cork.
Brooks saddles consist of a metal frame over which the leather is stretched and held in place by rivets. This type of saddle is particularly suitable for long outings because leather is a material that evolves over time and takes the shape of the anatomy of its user, it is personalized to its user. It is an exceptional product which is guaranteed for 10 years by Brooks.
