Brooks England have always been creative with their leather bicycle saddles and for some years now have been releasing limited edition carved saddles.
I have a Brooks Team Pro saddle with the Alpe Huez design (pictured below) that was released in limited numbers in 2010.
Its amazingly striking design is based on the topography of the famous Tour de France hillclimb. It's still in it's original box and is such a lovely piece of leather that I haven't fitted it to a bike as yet.
Brooks have only this week released a new saddle design in conjunction with Vans, the footwear company. The Brooks Swift Vans Vault Edition features laser etched artwork and intricate detailing from designer Taka Hayashi - the Vans shoe design guru.
|Brooks Swift Vans Vault|
- LENGTH : 272 mm
- WIDTH : 150 mm
- HEIGHT : 72 mm
- WEIGHT : 510 g
- FRAME : Chromium Plated Steel
- RIDE STYLE : Road&MTB
|Confirmed sneakerhead Taka Hayashi.|
As you can see it's a beautiful looking saddle that is only available in honey coloured leather. The saddles are exclusively numbered from 1 to 1866. The number 1866 is of great significance to the Brooks company as this was the year that the company was founded by John Boultbee Brooks - 2016 being their 150th anniversary.
The saddles are only available from the Brooks England website at 200 Euro a piece. Maybe a post Christmas present for ones self!

With the price tag it commanded, I looked at this saddle long and hard. I had my bike build in mind but what was most important to me was essentially emulating the look of this image: https://pbs.twimg.com/media/C149agYXcAA35YB.jpgReplyDelete
I wanted to fill in the etched artwork with black dye, just like the image. In the end, I couldn't nail down an effective and permanent (as possible and without the dye coming off on my clothes) method so instead of spending a mint on a specialized saddle, I just went with a regular 'ole B17.
Even without the dye option, the Brooks Swift Vans Vault is still an incredibly gorgeous saddle.
The tutorial is very helpful for a first timer like me, by the way if you could have given a tutorial on creating a free website, it would have been very helpful for newbies like me.ReplyDelete
