The Brooks Colt draws upon the company's history to offer riders a shape inspired by the classic racing saddles of the '70s and '80s. A favorite among Brooks aficionados since its creation in 1979, the Colt is renowned for its strength and durability. Brooks used all-natural vegetable dyes on their full-grain leather to achieve stunning color, and secured it to their traditional steel frame with elegant, hand-hammered copper rivets.
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.
