Brooks L'Eroica Tuscany Edition Saddle

Here is the last instalment of the Brooks L'Eroica series of Professional saddles. This saddle celebrates the main L'Eroica event held in the Tuscan hills of Italy. The one day event is held on October 4 2015. This edition is the fifth saddle in a series of specially produced Brooks saddles that celebrates the classic vintage cycling event.

The beauty of Tuscany!!

Brooks are co-sponsors of the event which is increasing in popularity each year. Here is an image taken during the manufacturing process of the Tuscany edition at the Brooks factory in Birmingham, UK. 

This is a beautifully crafted Brooks Professional model saddle with a L'Eroica logo and Tuscan scene embossed onto the top of the saddle. The Tuscany edition only comes in dark brown and is a classic collectors saddle that will appreciate in value considering that only 1000 pieces have been crafted. 

The Tuscany edition Professional saddle is available from the Brooks website for 180 Euro plus shipping and comes in a cylindrical shaped souvenir package that is pictured below. A fantastic gift for anyone interested in vintage cycling and a perfect saddle for that vintage rebuild you are wanting to finish.

Safe riding.
