Brooks Flyer Saddle


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)

Worth the Weight


Reviewed By: Jeff Richards on 11/11/22

I probably have 4,000-5,000 miles/8 years on my REI Safari touring bike with this saddle. Saddle is still better than new - had to thoroughly wet it a few times to wash the salt out, but I maintain it with saddle dressing or snow seal. Front & rear racks/panniers, fenders & etc. mean that the bike is no sportscar anyway, so the few extra ounces don't much matter. What does matter is the comfortable, form fitted leather saddle and the shock absorption. Truly the difference between either suffering through (or not doing) that last hour/last 10 miles at the end of a long day (prior to this saddle/bike), or pushing through to the end in comfort and with with no problems - much of that extra effort available due to having been on the Brooks saddle all day.

When people ask me if that Brooks saddle is any good I reply "In my opinion it's the best of the worst, I've never really sat on a good saddle" I bought this new Flyer saddle because my old one was showing signs of wear, it had around 37,000 miles on it and it was a Brooks Flyer. What else can I say!

By the way I am 65 years old. And I rode this saddle on a 415 mile 6 day tour last summer! Love this saddle!

I was talked out of being this saddle for 2 years and after buying 2 different gel saddles I was steered to a bike mechanic who had a Brooks Flyer . He let me ride his and I immediately ordered one. He warned me that I would have to break this in. We'll I felt pretty comfortable from the beginning and now I have 1500 miles on it and it just keeps getting better. I will NEVER go back to another saddle. After a 70 mile day I am ready to get off. But the next day I am not sore and am ready for another 70 miles!

Amazing Comfort


Reviewed By: Kelly Smith on 6/13/12

I purchased a Brooks Flyer a few months back and I must say that it is the best investment I may have ever made. Truly the most comfortable saddle I have ever used. I used it on my touring bike and when I purchased a Tandem so my 9 yr old son and I could do some rides together, the first thing I did was put the Brooks on the tandem. Don't plan on riding without it.
