Brooks Flyer Saddle Antique Brown
The Flyer and its ladies model Flyer S are classically sprung saddles for long distance trekking and touring. It is directly descending from the B66 Champion, first featured in the 1927 catalogue. Sharing the same leather tops of the B17 models, they combine the comfort of these popular models with the extra suspension granted by two rear springs. Both are available with tubular steel rivets or with hand hammered copper rivets under the names of Flyer Special and Flyer S Special.

StarStarStarStarStar Real leather is the best

by
Product: Brooks Flyer Saddle Antique Brown
Ownership: more than a year
Tech Knowledge: somewhat high

Pros

I've put thousands of miles on this saddle, and it just keeps getting more comfortable. After some second thoughts, I tried this on my mountain bike and think it's great there too. Leather, and the Brooks saddles in particular, seem to be the standard for long distance touring. My son and I rode across the US a couple of years ago and were very pleased with our saddles. The Brooks saddle riders were about the only other folks we met who seemed to be consistently happy with their saddles.

Cons

They do take additional care, mostly protection from rain. A good seat cover for riding in the rain, I like the Aardvark brand waterproof, takes care of it. Also, you need to pay attention to tightening the saddle periodically, or you may get some cracking around the seat rivets, as my son has experienced. The Brooks saddle treatment seems kind of expensive, although a small tin lasts a long time.
Leather saddles are a bit heavy. I'm still trying to talk myself into adding that additional weight to my Ti bike. I've got Brooks saddles on my training and touring bikes.

Other Thoughts

For comfort, the Brooks saddles seem to be the way to go. About the only place I'd be reluctant to use them is on a racing bike. Although, I'm considering doing a team ride of the RAAM and will definitely use my Brooks on that ride.

Pros

Comfortable, nose not too high. Looks great.

Cons

Saddle doesn't go "back" far enough. It is noisy (takes frequent adjustment). Heavy!

Other Thoughts

I also have a Selle Anatomica on another bike and it is a better saddle. I put a Brooks Cambium on my road bike and I like it better than the Flyer. I am a 60 yr old male and have had sciatic nerve issues for the past several years (hence the shopping for a comfortable saddle). These three are all good, but if I were to buy another Brooks saddle, it would be another Cambium. No adjustments for noise, immediately comfortable.
