What customers say about "Key Specs"
Brooks C17 Cambium Bike Saddle
  • It looks great, its incredibly comfortable and is just generally awesome. I would buy over and over again.
  • I have about 250 miles on this saddle, and I adore it. It is absolutely worth the money in comfort, performance and style.
  • The materials are such high quality and it is very comfortable.
  • Same good fit I've always gotten from Brooks, and the rubber composite material has a bit more give than the traditional leather saddles.
  • The saddle is quite attractive and comfortable; however, unlike the other Brooks saddles, the manufacturer did not build this type for longevity.
Brooks C17S Women's Cambium Bike Saddle
  • The level of comfort I had is immeasurable. The break-in period was so easy and pain-free, and even on the crappiest of roads, this saddle has my back.
  • It gives with you so when you hit a bump it absorbs some of the shock. I still wear padded bike shorts, but I feel like I don't really need to with this saddle.
  • This saddle has changed riding long distances for me. I'm a brooks for life now.
  • I have only recently started biking (road bike) and the saddle is a great fit from day one. No sore butt or whatever.

What customers say about "Features"
Brooks C17 Cambium Bike Saddle
  • Super comfortable. No padding but the hard rubber surface flexes just enough under your sits bones. Well designed and great looking.
  • The combination of rubber and cotton has some nice flexibility.
  • It's waterproof, you don't have to condition it, it doesn't creak, and you don't have to constantly re-tension it every time you forget to cover it up in the rain.
  • Best bike saddle ive owned. I dont have any pain down there any more, even on long rides, and i dont wear bibs or butt pads.
  • This saddle didn't last 3000 miles before the canvas on the top had worn through to the rubber just aft of the nose assembly.
Brooks C17S Women's Cambium Bike Saddle
  • Not only is the packaging that it comes in absolutely fabulous (I'm a graphic designer...I notice these things), but the saddle itself looks pretty legit as well.
  • Very comfy compared to a regular seat. Love the color and look. Would definitely recommend.
  • It looks good on my bike and it felt good the first day I used it. The fact that it is low maintenance is a huge plus!
  • Very high attention to detail. Simple, elegant design. As comfortable as any similar quality seat. I like the fact that the material is waterproof.
  • Looks amazing. great quality. Good if you want something for the old italian steel frame with a touch of modern.
