Why We Like The Swift Saddle

Brooks England drew its inspiration for the Men’s Swift Saddle from its 1890 catalog. This vintage-looking leather bike saddle features firm, high-quality leather that breaks in to fit your bum like leather boots form to fit your feet—say goodbye to having a sore backside. Also, leather is porous and allows for ventilation, so these seats feel comfortably cool on hot days. Because copper is gentler to leather than steel, and because tour racers of yore would have their saddles outfitted with large rivets because that made the seats last longer, the Swift features nine oversized, hand-hammered copper rivets. Choose from titanium or chrome-plated steel rails.

  • A vintage-inspired saddle for comfort that lasts
  • Durable vegetable tanned leather shapes over time
  • Lasting comfort and breathability for our ride
  • Handcrafted by Brooks England since 1866
  • Extended 10-year guarantee for peace of mind

I could not get enough set back

Had to return it. Surprised as it is taking forever to get my refund.

Racing Geometry

Familiarity:
I've put it through the wringer

I have this saddle on my single speed commuter bike. It's great for riders who who racing saddles on their road bikes. It's not as narrow as a typical racing saddle, but it is narrower than the B17. In terms of break in, the saddle was comfortable right out of the the box. This is in comparison to my racing saddle, which is rock hard. This saddle is not hard, but it is not cushiony either. If you want something more cushiony, a Brooks will take some time to soften. That being said, after a month or so of riding, it has started to feel more broken in. It was easy to install and adjust, but that is more a reflection of the seat post and clamp. However it is a standard two rail saddle. I would certainly recommend this to a roadie who also wants a hipster commuter bike.

Love this saddle!

I had a B17 back in the day, and I liked it, but didn't love it. I decided to take a chance with this model, as it fell between the standard B17, and the more race-worthy Swallow. I have not been disappointed. Almost no soreness, after many long rides. Glad I bought it. Love the look, too.

Beefy

I like it, but I thought I would point out the leather with chrome rails weighs 510 grams as per Brooks website which is not mentioned on this site. The titanium version is 370g.

Is this saddle available in brown color,...

Is this saddle available in brown color, large brass rivets and titanium rails? Please confirm price and free shipping? Thank you. Also, do you have a Brooks Team Pro available with the above same characteristics? Price and shipping fee, if any? Dan Daly

Smells fantastic

The aroma this saddle gives off is wonderful. A bit knotty with a touch of sweetness, and a hint of cow. After a long day of grundel grinding, nothing is more satisfying then running my nose across the ol' Heritage and taking a big whiff.
