About Leisure Saddles
Leisure bike saddles are designed with comfort over weight in mind, this means they may have more padding than a svelte racing saddle and may weigh a few grams more, but should provide a higher level of comfort for the leisure rider. A leisure saddle is usually suitable for someone who rides for up to an hour at a time, if you ride over this length of time a performance saddle may be a better choice. The reason for this is that a leisure saddle is often wider and provides a larger seating area, this causes the legs to be placed further apart than when using a racing saddle, and this can become less comfortable than a more racy saddle over longer distances.
About the Brooks England brand
The Brooks bike saddle story started way back in 1865, a young man of just 19 years of age was said to have bought 'one of those new-fangled velocipedes' which was fitted with a wooden saddle, this proved excruciating. As luck would have it his father made leather saddles for horses, so the young man known as John Boultbee Brooks set to work in his fathers workshop designing and developing a comfortable saddle from leather.
The rest they say is history....
Brooks experience in saddle making goes right back to the beginning - back to the period of solid tyres - and is unequalled by any other house in the world.
That said, they recognise the fact that they cannot rely on their past history alone, so they still build saddles with the same attitude as when they started, 'quality first', both in materials and manufacture. The testament to this is that there are still saddles in active use today, made many many years ago.

Magazine reviews for Brooks England Swallow Titanium Saddle
Review from Cycling Plus
You enter a relationship when you buy a Brooks saddle, all the stories you hear about them fitting like a glove, the breaking-in period, the timeless design, are all true. A Brooks Saddle is like your favourite pair of walking boots, and the time spent breaking one in is well worth it in the long-term. Compared with a carbon FSA K-Force saddle, the Swallow Classic couldn't be more different if it tried. It's a prime example of good old craftsmanship that'll never fail to impress. Quality is awesome as is the performance and it's hard not to be swayed by the looks. It may not be the lightest but it'll certainly deliver timeless comfort and support and the mix of classic leather with titanium rails helps to keep the weight down to an acceptable standard. The perfect addition to your classic road bike.
A beautiful saddle with timeless design. Everyone should try one at least once
