B15 Swallow Select

Availability: Out of stock

Made in England

This version of the B15 Swallow is made with our extra tough, organic leather for high mileage cyclists. It also features our hand hammered copper rivets. The B15 Swallow is a faithful reproduction of a saddle specifically conceived with the sporting cyclist in mind, the result being a timeless design widely regarded as the precursor of all modern racing saddles. This saddle was originally patented as long ago as 1937. At that time a great many such Brooks Saddles were exported to the continent, where they were very popular amongst professional cyclists competing in the various tours and stage races. Today's Swallow still proudly bears the original patent declaration on the tensioning plate beneath the svelte leather upper. This text retains the word “deposé” the patent application for the Swallow having initially been registered in the Paris patent office.

Hi, I'd really like the idea of the extra 'flex' this saddle offers for my MTB but I'm a little hesitant now hearing of how such saddle was used for touring and lost it's flex to a point that it was returned. Can you kindly assist in my dilemma?



Better yet, which of these models are best suited for MTB riding?



(I have steel MTB with no suspension whatsoever, hence why I'm trying to get the most comfort I can from a saddle)



Thanks in advance! :)
A> This model is great for MTB use, and the Select leather will ensure long life for years to come!

I am 12 years old and want to have a brooks saddle. I've read on your webpage that people thinks the seats are very comforrable. I'm about 1.7 meters high. Would I could experience the same comfort?
A> Yes, you can also expect to enjoy great comfort when using the Swallow.  Happy Riding!

I guess that this saddle might be congenial with a racing bicycle, however, I "misused" it as a saddle for my touring bicycle and it lost suspension very quickly until the extent where it couldn't be further suspended (after about half a year and very roughly esteemed 8'000 km). I sent it to the retailer and fortunately, they gave me a new saddle.
A> This saddle is really only for use with racing bicycles, we're afraid.
