Hailing from the 1927 Brooks catalog, the Flyer Special has supported nearly a century of long-distance tourists, trekkers, and globe-trotting adventurers on their journeys. Using the same saddle shape as Brooks' perennial favorite, the B17, the Flyer Special adds an extra dash of plush, bump-busting comfort with a traditionally sprung saddle frame. And of course, it features Brooks' full grain, premium leather top secured by their trademark, hand-hammered copper 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.
