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.
