The Flyer is a classically sprung saddle 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. This saddle has a smooth leather top, with 3 small holes for ventilation, smooth (non chamfered) skirts, small hollow steel rivets, with quality saddle bag loops on the frame. (Brooks Saddle Tensioning Spanner included)
Clamp Style: Std Rails
Weight: 1lb 8oz

I still have a ways to go before I break it in, I do find it comfortable but I also found that the 3 holes in the middle of the seat on top sometimes pinch. I hope this will resolve itself as I break in the saddle. I have been told it take 6 months, I ride daily.

I love my seat that's why it will only sit on my new Brooks Flyer Saddle... I was afraid at first that I would have a long brake in period...but, my butt did't really feel a thing... I have about 150 miles on this new saddle and I just love it... I should know something about saddles, but I have never owned a horse... With that out in the open I have never owned a Bicycle sit on like the Brooks Flyer Bike Saddle... I give the Brooks Flyer Saddle 5 Stars of Excellents only because there isn't a higher rating... Every one that is a Touring, Bicycle Riding Person should own one....
