Made in England

The Conquest is back! Long popular as a sportier equivalent to the legendary Brooks Flyer, the Conquest is more similar in length to a racing saddle, but with springs for long distance comfort. Finished off with hand-hammered rivets, the Conquest is a must for Randonneurs, ultra marathon cyclists, and dedicated commuters when comfort is a priority.

Part of an old Brooks Tradition

It is hard,

it is hard to believe,

it is hard to find a better saddle.



My Conquest was given to me in almost unused condition by a friend who said that this saddle was too hard and not what he had expected.

I use the saddle commuting to work almost daily with 22 km / 13,75 miles one way which makes a good hours ride. My riding positions vary from sporty (MTB) to racy since I have a Tri bar mounted for the long straights.

1st year: I used it, found it a bit hard and often found that 1 hour was all i could bear.

2nd year: I used it.

3rd year: I used it and started to like it.



In between I built up a roadbike that is equipped with an expensive and specially ergonomical designed saddle. I used this one during a 2 hours race and had a painful experiance. For the next road bike tour that took 8 hours I changed to my BROOKS Conquest and finished the tour without any problems.



What an experiance. I am now convinced that ther is no better saddle than a leather saddle and that it´s worth to go through the breaking in period.



5th year: My satisfaction grows with every kilometer / mile. I am now looking for a new saddle for the road bike. It will be a BROOKS but I am not yet certain which model to choose (B15 swallow / Team Pro / B17)



many magic miles

Dear Brooks,



I have been riding the Conquest All Terrain on my trekking bike since long - about 15,000 km a year. The saddle is really comfortable. I have got no pain on long distance trips even over heavy duty roads.



But the metal work breaks every couple of years. It does always during holidays. The rails were broken this time, the screw last time. Repair is impossible far away from home. The short lifetime disappoints me.



My question: Are there spare parts made from tougher steel like Reynolds? Can I order them in Germany? Which particle number?



Kind regards

I have, just now, taken charge of my new Conquest saddle. So far, I am very pleased with it and, as it is the eleventh Brooks in my collection, I fully expect t to be as good in quality and comfort as the others. However, as someone who always rides with a saddlebag (as opposed to a rucksack), I was shocked to find that there are no bag loops on this model. My misery was further compounded a moment ago, when I read on this site that your Zinc Bagloop can be used on a variety of models but not my Conquest. Can you tell me please, is there a way around this?

Many thanks, M.T.
