The Brooks C15 Cambium saddle has a lot in common with the other members of the Cambium family. Its construction is the same timeless design of natural rubber and woven material, and its aesthetics are the classic, neutral tones that sets Brooks' kit apart in an industry awash with jet black and ostentatious branding. The C15's difference lies in its shape: it's 10 grams lighter and 22 millimeters narrower than the original C17, which means it's more amenable to the fast, tight pedaling styles of cyclists who skew toward the competitive side of the spectrum.
Every member of the Cambium family shares the same, three-layer construction. Cambiums begin life as a flap of natural rubber. This is vulcanized, and then the upper face is covered with organic cotton and a firm textile layer to give it a durable and comfortable face. It makes for a saddle body that flexes at the wings and between the rails' contact points, so it supports at the sit bones and gives cushion for the perineum.
