Nylon instead of leather
Brooks arguably made its name from its iconic leather saddles. While numerous weatherproofing options for the leather options exist, Mother Nature is a stubborn opponent who seldom refuses to lose, and this new nylon saddle has been designed to battle the elements.

Because of its hard-wearing nature, Brooks states its latest saddle is ideal for urban riding and commuter bikes that spend the bulk of their days exposed to the elements.
The nylon cover on the Cambium All Weather models is claimed to be impervious to sun, water and freezing.

Additionally, according to Brooks, the infamous break-in period is not present on the Cambium All Weather saddles due to a vulcanized rubber top that’s ready-to-ride from day one.
Brooks reports all colors and size are available now.
