The handsome Swift was the youngest gentleman's racing saddle in the Brooks range. It features delicately hand skived lower sides, where a thin stripe of the leather top surface is cut back, thus exposing the lighter colored suede beneath which makes for an attractive visual accent and greater comfort when pedaling. The large copper rivets at the nose and tail are also hammered by hand, commensurate with our usual high level of attention to detail.
A new saddle should be treated with Brooks Proofide Leather Dressing to help assist the "breaking-in" process. Proofide also helps to keep the leather supple as it is carefully formulated from special ingredients to condition, preserve, and shower proofs your saddle. Brooks Proofide is the only substance that should be used to take care of your saddle.
