The Flyer has the same basic shape as the B17 but for extra comfort on rough roads, it is equipped with springs..
The Flyer is most appropriate for cyclists who set their handlebars about the same height as their saddles, or perhaps a bit higher.
In years gone by, technicians, allied to the Tour riders, would purchase Brooks saddles, disassemble them and massage the hide so their oils, wines and other secret potions penetrated the leather. These solutions conditioned the leather's structure and meant a softer, more comfortable rid could be enjoyed.
The new range of Brooks Aged saddles are again manufactured using only the finest natural products. Specially formulated waxes and balms are skillfully worked into the hide resulting in a more comfortable riding experience, requiring less break-in time.
