The Brooks Cambium series represents something new for the classic leather saddle manufacturer—this saddle is just as comfortable as a well broken-in B15 Swallow, but it's completely leather-free.
Made instead of vulcanized natural rubber and organic cotton canvas with a waterproof coating, the Cambium is perfect for or anyone who's wanted to try a Brooks but been put off by the break-in period and the maintenance involved. You'll never have to condition, tension, or break in this saddle—right from the get-go, it's ready to go the distance. Brooks saddles have been preferred by long-distance bike tourists and endurance riders for generations, so when we say go the distance, we mean it.
The C15 All Weather is modeled for sport and race rider, much like the B15 Swallow, with a narrow profile and lighter weight. The uniquely flexible rubber construction is durable, maintenance-free, and instantly comfortable. The natural rubber provides a naturally weather-resistant saddle that will stand up to seasons of use.
Weatherproof nylon cover blocks out rain or snow. Die-cast aluminum structure. Tubular stainless steel rails mount to a fiberglass case, featuring loops for mounting saddlebags or lights. Assembled from replaceable parts with no special tools required for servicing, the saddle's frame can be repaired in the event of an accident. Just like Brooks' classic leather saddles, the Cambium is made for life.
Length: 283 mm. Width: 140 mm. Weight: 450 grams.

After searching for years to find the perfect saddle, I tend to find one I like then buy it for each of my bikes. A few years ago, I favored Terry Fly saddles. Then I moved on to Ergon SM3 saddles which I still use on a few bikes. After hearing about how well people like the new Brooks C15 Cambium saddles, I decided to try one myself. I bought it here because it was the lowest price online I could find and I like buying from Bike Tires Direct because of the VIP points toward future purchases.
After an initial ride with the Brooks C15 on my Surly Pugsley, I raised my seatpost nearly an inch and adjusted the angle of the saddle for the perfect fit. I'm now considering buying another Brooks C15 Cambium. This is comfortable, great looking saddle with Brooks brand quality.
Everyone has different saddle needs with that being said Brooks saddles have always worked well for me. I enjoy the fact that this saddle is very weather resistance and comfortable. I picked the carved version of this saddle to use when I raced the Trans Am. That saddle shows some ware but has held up quite well and is still in service.
It is great saddle, like with any other saddle you will need to spend some time to micro adjust it to your liking.
Once you get it dialed in, youll be very happy. It almost feel like the longer the ride the more comfortable the saddle gets!?
Great saddles ! it takes a little time to find your sweet spot thru micro adjustments ,once you do its magic ! Firm fore and aft where you need it yet compliant where you want it , plus looks killer ! Very fast shipping from BTD! And best price !
This is a great saddle. I have a version of the saddle on all my bikes(4). No break in time is needed. Over time and a lot of miles it will stretch a bit, but the comfort is still there. I would and have recommended it to many friends. it's not the lightest, but it is the most comfortable.
