Brooks Swift Chrome Saddle

The Brooks Swift Chrome saddle is a racing and touring saddle that has been cut down in size compared to some of the other similarly styled saddles from the Brooks range. The rails are made of chrome to provide a sturdy support and the sides have been chamfered to reveal a lighter suede underneath.

This is a saddle that has been accepted as the top of the line in the sport saddles created by Brooks. It is a saddle that the more aggressive cyclists tend to use with good results. These riders tend to set their handlebars lower than the saddle. The difference between the Swift Chrome and the Swift Titanium lies in the weight of the two saddles with the Chrome putting an extra 120g of weight on the bike.

At this point it is worth adding the standard warning that comes with just about all Brooks leather saddles. They are not for everyone with many reviews and reports from people who have been unable to get over the hardness of the new leather saddle. The breaking in period can take its toll on the behind so be sure to treat it properly with Proofide cream to soften the leather. The saddle is available in a choice of black, antique brown or honey.

What the Manufacturer Says

The handsome Swift was the youngest gentleman's racing saddle in the Brooks range. It features delicately hand skived lower sides, where a thin stripe of the leather top surface is cut back, thus exposing the lighter coloured suede beneath which makes for an attractive visual accent and greater comfort when pedalling.
