Brooks and Levi’s® Cambium C17 Denim Saddles
denim_saddle (1)

I love the looks (and feel) of this collaboration:

“Brooks England and Levi’s® Commuter™ have teamed up to create a Numbered Limited Edition Cambium C17 Denim Saddle. This release of 1,000 pieces will be exclusively available at the flagship B1866 store in London and the Brooks online shop from the 5th of February, 2015.

This special saddle is manufactured from recycled Levi’s denim utilising the same vulcanisation techniques of the comfortable, waterproof, and long-lasting Cambium C17 original. The used denim was collected at Levi’s Commuter Workspaces in Brooklyn, Los Angeles and London in summer 2014.”

Head over to Brooks England for more information.

Fizik’s Custom Saddle Designer

I don’t want to say this is a new feature, because I’m not sure how long it’s been out, but in the vein of Nike iD and other customizable products, Fizik has a saddle customization application on their website. Match virtually any of their saddle shapes to a spectrum of colors and tones.

Fabric Saddles: Shapes Based on Somotypes
Screen Shot 2014-11-12 at 8.16.15 AM

We’ve all got different bone structures, which ultimately determine our body size, independent of diet. These is one of the factors in determining fit, from clothing to even saddles. These bone structures are known as Somatotypes and come in three varieties; Ectomorph (Light bone structure) Mesomorph (Average bone structure) and Endomorph (Broad bone structure).

Fabric Saddles takes a look at how your Somotype determines your sit-bone width and sizes you off of your height and wrist circumference.

Their line is taking shape and will be available in early 2015. For now, head over to Fabric and check out their saddles. The Cell and ALM models look interesting.

Initial Reaction: Brooks C15 Narrow Cambium Saddle
Brooks-B15-cambium-saddle-review-1

This saddle has been creating quite the stir and rightfully so. I’ve been riding the C17 on and off for several months and it’s great, but I usually ride a narrower saddle, so it was never ideal. When Brooks England gave me two C15 Cambiums to try out on my bikes, I was eager to see how it felt on my touring bike and a road bike. First up, is my Geekhouse Woodville touring bike.

I’ve been pedaling around today on the C15 and I’m already in love with it… See more below
