To add to its collection of cycling products, Brooks ventures to produce three bicycle friendly bags: the Hampstead, Islington Rucksack and Soho.

The Hampstead is a spacious bag that can be secured to a bike rack using its own straps. Its size is large enough to satisfy a weekend of goods. Retail price is £269.99.

The Soho model is patterned from a messenger bag that can be worn across the body. Made from quality leather, the Soho features one main compartment, which can accommodate a mini laptop (13 inch screen), a small interior pocket that can be closed with a snap-on and a replaceable light leather grip. The Soho is available for £239.99.

The Islington Rucksack is more suitable for rugged trails and is priced at £249.99.

brooks x dan funderburgh team pro alpe dhuez saddle1   Brooks x Dan Funderburgh: Team Pro Alpe dHuez Saddle
Alpe d’Huez is a formidable climb that’s been used as a stage finish in the Tour de France over the last several decades, and Brooklyn artist Dan Funferburgh’s inspiration in his collaboration with Brooks England. The Alpe d’Huez is featured in Funferburgh’s work through embossed leather that takes on the Brooks classic shape over chromium plated steel. Coming in at 550g, the saddle comes in three different colors, Black, Brown, and Honey.

Aside form his collaboration with Brooks, Funferburgh’s art can be viewed in more places than just on a bike such as Cooper-Hewitt Design Museum and the Miami Museum of Modern Art. Funferburgh has done other bike related art, sharing his love for the bicycles.

Like most of Brooks’ saddles, you can expect to pay a premium dollar, $195.
