Brooks Flyer Imperial Black
Classically sprung for long distance trekking and touring, the traditional Flyer meets Imperial comfort. This saddle celebrates the deep historical associations with the sporting heroes of the previous London Olympiad, as well as the rich relationship with devotees of Long Distance Touring, during the inaugural WCR Grand Tour (www.worldcycleracing.com), a competitive circumnavigation of the Earth by bicycle. The leather surface features a restyling of a piece by Frank Patterson, artist and illustrator of the Brooks catalogues of the 1920's, realized by Richard Phipps.

Customer reviews of this product:

StarStarStarStarStar Quality Brooks Flyer Imperial Saddle

by
Product: Brooks Flyer Imperial Black
Ownership: a few months
Tech Knowledge: average

Pros

So far so good. Easy assembly. With first ride I found it relatively comfortable. The Imperial cut-out offers ventilation and perineal relief which my grooved gel saddle provided minimally. Proofide and rain cover = 5 stars. Lifetime quality product. ModernBike's sale price much appreciated.

Cons

Break-in is taking longer than expected, even with minimal horizontal tension. Stiffness, of 2 coil springs, seems to offer little cushion. Apparently earlier model used lighter guage steel wire in springs with sufficient enough risk of breakage to warrant beefing them up. I'd appreciate any help in up-grading to a lighter spring, if available.

Other Thoughts

Black leather saddle stains light shorts.

StarStarStarStarStar Great Saddle

by
Product: Brooks Flyer Imperial Black
Ownership: a month
Tech Knowledge: average

Pros

Great Quality.
A lot more comfortable than my original seat that came with my bike
Looks and feels great!

Cons

Nice saddle = Nice target.
I purchased a seat leash to protect my investment.

Does require more maintenance than a modern saddle but, so do all leather goods.

Other Thoughts

Can't wait to try it out on a long ride!
