Brooks Flyer S Special Saddle

The Brooks Flyer S Special saddle is the ladies version of the Flyer Special and it features the distinctive larger copper rivets that are particular to the Special line of saddles. All of the features of the Flyer S is included in the saddle as you would expect ensuring that the comfort provided to ensure long distance rides are enjoyable. The Flyer S Special is a saddle that has been designed for long distance trekking. The shape is the same as the B17 saddle but has been equipped with more padding for added comfort over rough roads.

The Brooks Flyer S Special saddles are quite distinctive due to the spring coils under the saddle and are meant for riders who set their seat to be the same height as the handlebars. The hardware used underneath the saddle makes it quite heavy, but then, you aren’t looking to save every gram when your main priority is to provide maximum cushioning on the rough terrain. The copper rivets of the Special adds a little bit of distinction to the saddle to give it even more appeal.

As with all Brooks leather saddles there will be a breaking in period for the first few times you use your new saddle. This will allow the leather of the saddle to soften and become shaped to the contours of your butt. You can speed this process along by using “Proofide” cream on the leather to assist with the softening process.

The saddle is available in a choice of two colors: black, brown or honey.

What the Manufacturer Says

The Flyer and its ladies model Flyer S are classically sprung saddles for long distance trekking and touring. It is directly descending from the B66 Champion, first featured in the 1927 catalogue. Sharing the same leather tops of the B17 models, they combine the comfort of these popular models with the extra suspension granted by two rear springs. Both are available with tubular steel rivets or with hand hammered copper rivets under the names of Flyer Special and Flyer S Special.
