Availability: In stock

Made in England

A special edition to celebrate our 150th Anniversary.

Brooks has created a series of their most iconic saddles in resplendent all copper frames with hand-hammered copper rivets and bl ack leather. The models available are the classic best-seller B17, its touring counterpart the Flyer, the B67 for city bikes, the B33 for heavy duty and the Swallow for racing, all delivered in Special Edition packaging.

The 150th Anniversary Edition B15 Swallow.

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.

The timeless design of the Swallow remains virtually unchanged today, our only concession to modernity being the recent introduction of a lighter model. The Swallow Titanium, features lightweight titanium rails for a significant weight reduction over the traditional Swallow Chrome, although in all other respects the Swallow models are the same as each other, and indeed exactly the same as their historical namesakes.
