Brooks Select Organic Saddles

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.
