In the last a century and a half, Brooks England have gone from being a small workshop to a synonym of craftsmanship. In 1865, John Boultbee Brooks left his hometown of Hinckley in Leicestershire with only 20 pounds in his pocket. He went to Birmingham, where in 1866 he founded a company of harnesses for horses and general leather goods in Great Charles Street under the name of JB Brooks & Co. In 1878, the unfortunate death of Mr. Brooks’ horse lead to him borrowing a bicycle to get to work. He found the saddle so uncomfortable that he promised to do something about it.

On October 28, 1882, Mr. Brooks presented his first bike saddle patent. Cyclists recognised the improvements it featured and the new product was a resounding success.

In 1962 Brooks England became part of Raleigh and moved to its current facilities in Smethwick in the West Midlands, a few miles away from the original facilities. Inspired by the timeless products designed by their predecessors, Brooks England have revived the original slogan “Saddles, Bags, etc” introducing a series of bicycle bags and other cycling accessories. Brooks England is full of history, a prestigious brand that has almost 150 years of tradition and experience. But the quality and style will never age.

Saddle Brooks England B17 S Classic black woman
Unbeatable quality
Amazing quality and unbelievable comfort. No break in time at all completely amazed.

Saddle Brooks England Swift brown
Unsurpassed quality
Not only is the seat esthetically pleasing it is very comfortable. You'll hear people complain about how difficult it is to break the saddle in. Nonsense, I ride 9.5 miles a day and from the very first day, I felt no discomfort what so ever. One reason may be that I applied the include Proofide as instructed. One suggestion is to make sure that the seat is level when initially installed then adjust in small increments.

Brooks England Slender leather cuffs 100-130 mm dark brown
can't re-wrap the leather strip
The leather wrap came undone after 2 years of heavy use, and I was not able to wrap it back on. My bike mechanic wasn't able either. Other than that, they look and feel great. I bought them again, after all.
