Swift Saddle, Black
The Brooks Swift Saddle was originally designed as a saddle for young gentlemen racers, hence the name. The Swift Saddle has a thicker leather than their flagship B17 model, it also features beautiful hand pounded copper rivets, and a chamfered edge. Because the Swift was designed as a racing saddle, it is meant for use while in an aggressive riding position where the rider is leaning forward and down. We recommend the Swift on our Single Speed, Classic Sport, or Sport models if your saddle height is dramatically taller than your handlebar height.
