Sorry, this item is no longer available.
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 hand hammered copper rivets under the names of Flyer Special and Flyer S Special.

Brooks Flyer Saddle
by Tim K. of Fargo, ND on February 19, 2015
Ownership: more than a year
Tech Knowledge: somewhat high
It fit nice when I got it, and it's even better three years later. Fits me well, and I love the looks of it on my Bianchi Eros commuter. I have about 3K on it, and it's still plenty stiff, and just starting to break in some.
This seat is heavy, but that also means it's made well and is going to last. I have installed on a steel framed bike, and this Brooks just makes my smooth ride even better.
I use the Proofide a couple times a year, and be sure to get underneath the saddle where water can splash up. You have to baby these leather saddles a bit to keep them nice.
I also have the Brooks Imperial on my Fuji carbon road bike (CCR-3), and love that one too.
The Flyer springs really don't do much to cushion the ride. They're really stiff, but they look really cool. ;-) I'm sure the B17 Standard would work just as well as the Flyer for most riders.
I'm a believer in Brooks saddles. They're nice quality, and time just makes them better.
Not for riders worried about extra ounces on their bikes.

I've tried all kinds of saddles but favor brooks saddles from experience my first was an old founder off of an old English racer that I put on a mountain bike ahh... that hammock effect! But you see there's 150 feet of crotch busting stutter bumps about two blocks away from my house, on the way to the super market a mile and a half away I wanted something even more comfortable than my b-17 so I purchased the flyer special with copper rivits and was well rewarded that I could float overs the craters forgetting the whole time that I was sure the street must have been repaved although my eyes were telling me otherwise needless to say the short time I've had the saddle I can tell it's leather is taking an impression of the ishial tuberosities (sit bones). I'm very pleased and will purchase another one for my other mountain bike please note I'm riding a r 400 cannondale all aluminum I might add muuucchas grazia oh yeah I weigh 260 lbs
