For those who prefer to sit straight on their bikes, the ideal saddle is the B67 Sprung Leather from Brooks. As one of the wider Brooks saddles, the B6 Sprung Leather is quite wide enough to offer a comfortable position. Weighing at 1530g, the saddle is 260mm long and 210mm wide.

In order to get rid of the tingle caused by road bumps, the saddle is filled with springs underneath. While its handlebars are slightly higher than the saddle, most of the weight of the rider is put on the saddle.

As one of the ultimate saddles for comfort available on the market, the Brooks B67 Sprung Leather Saddle is ideal for riders who regard comfort highly. With chrome springs and black steel rails, the saddle is available in a honey or black leather top.

Brooks is known for clashing elegance and vintage styled products, and what caught our eye is their new Slender leather grips.

Brooks Slender Leather grips use a aluminum structure. Natural corks and leather tape are wrapped around it. You can also replace the leather tape if it gets cut or you want a different color.

Previously released is the Brooks Plump leather grips, which are made of recycled leather. When comparing the Slender and Plump grips, the Slender is much lighter (the name gives it away as well).

Three colors are available: black, light brown, and dark brown. Retail is $80.

If you love touring on your bike enough to rack up 10,000 to 20,000 miles a year, the new Brooks Select saddles might be right up your alley.

Brooks worked with a couple different cow farms in Sweden for organic cowhide. The cows used roamed in open fields away from trees, resulting in a clean cowhide with no blemishes. Still, each Select is unique looking because of this process.

Towards the back of the Brooks Select saddles are hand pounded rivets, a unique process featured on most Brooks.

Each saddle is very tough, and is claimed to last twice as long as other Brooks saddles on the market.

Retail price starts at $195.

For those who do not like the feel of a regular cycling jacket and plan to commute this rainy season, Brooks has released the Oxford Roll Up rain cape.

The Brooks Oxford rain cape has magnets in the straps that wrap around your handlebars, allowing rain to slide off via its angle. For your safety in low light conditions, Brooks also added reflective JB Raver tweed.

Some jackets do not hold up to par against rain, and in some cases will soak your clothes. The Brooks Oxford roll up rain cape is made of waterproof cotton preventing this issue.

Manufactured in England, the Brooks rain cape uses vegetable tanned leather just like Brooks’ saddles.

If the skies clear on your ride, you can roll up the Brooks Oxford rain cape and attach it to the back of your saddle, using the same magnets that attach to your handlebars. Retail is…

Brooks Colt Saddle Returns

Not long ago, we broke the word that Brooks would re-issue the Colt saddle, originally releasing in 1979. The last year Brooks released the Colt was in 2001, while it was known for its durability and strength. Although not for certain, some say the reason for the Colt to be discontinued was the sale of Brooks (in 2001).

The Brooks Colt Saddle will take a different approach, still obtaining the retro look and black colorway, you can also purchase the seat in violet and mustard. At EuroBike, a pink and turquoise Colt will debut. Keeping the saddle environmentally friendly, the colors are obtained by natural vegetable dyes. Retail price is $189.99.

The Level City Bike, in connection with Wallpaper was designed by Japanese Shiko Matsuda, who works with Level. Wallpaper wanted the bike to have a clear view of the road, this was achieved by the positioning set for the rider.

For those days when the roads get a bit wet, drum brakes on the front and rear have been added as a effective braking system.

Aiming for a clean look, the Level City Bike brake and gear cables are routed through the frame. Finishing the bike off, two narrower tubes were used instead of a one crossbar, this leaves enough space for a standard briefcase, one that is provided by Brooks.

Kinfolk has a new collaboration with Coat, Brooks, and Kara Ginther, with each giving their own contribution. Here we have the International Bike, which was asked by Wallpaper. According to the press release, Wallpaper are avid urban cyclists that do a lot of traveling, so they needed a bike that could be broken down with ease.

For the Kinfolk International Bike, Wallpaper called in frame builders (Kinfolk), Brooks, Kara Ginther, and Coat, who came in from the United States, United Kingdom, and Japan.

In the end, we have a Kinfolk frame, Brooks saddle and bespoke bag with help from Kara Ginther, while coat did the paint job.
