Founded by John Boultbee Brooks, in England in 1866, Brooks England revolutionized comfort on the bicycle. Before the Brooks leather saddle was invented in 1878, bicycle seats were made of wood. Timelessly elegant, and comfortable beyond compare, Brooks saddles are number one for us here at tokyobike. Their leather line is still handmade in the UK by historically unparalleled craftsman. In addition to their heritage line of leather goods, Brooks England also produces some of their fine cycling goods in Italy. Their Italian made products range from canvas cycling bags, to their Cambium vulcanized rubber line of saddles. All Brooks England products are crafted with blue sign certified materials, upholding the highest standard in sustainable production.
If you're looking to increase the comfort of your ride, we highly recommend upgrading your saddle & grips. A Brooks leather saddle with mold to your unique sit bones with use, and there's no better time to break one in than the warm weather months. Enjoy the ride, and challenge yourself to some longer expeditions on a Brooks!
