Brooks C13 Cambium Saddle - 132mm - Chpt 3
Brooks of England is no stranger to stereotypes. Their original line of leather saddles always seemed more at home on vintage and city bikes in the parlors of their smoking jacket-wearing, pipe-toting aged British clientele (oft-referred to as "Commodore") didn't help their cause. But now, with the Cambium, Brooks is needling its way back into the hearts of the modern racing cyclist. A distinctly unique take on the contemporary saddle, the Cambium's rubber shell acts to distribute and dampen road vibrations across the whole of the surface, instead of transmitting them directly into the rider. Just as well, it retains a distinct, Brooks look that melds contemporary with classic. Rivets at the rear of the saddle remind the rider of the brand's heritage, while the all-carbon rail construction (borrowed from sister brand fi'zi:k) keeps weight respectable.
The Cambium C13 shell uses an all-rubber construction with an organic cotton cover, and it's there that CHPT3 has applied its special aesthetic touch - the striking OneMoreLap data pattern shared with many other pieces in the line. The cotton cover does wear with time, and like a good pair of selvedge jeans, it will begin to display a distinct distressed look after use.
