British saddle manufacturer Brooks is looking for 100 cyclists to test out its new Cambium C17 saddle. The Birmingham-based company wants test riders from around the world to try out the saddle over a few months and then give feedback.

Brooks is perhaps best known for its iconic range of brown leather saddles – and the Cambium could be seen as a departure as it’s made from rubber and cotton.

According to Brooks, “The Cambium is made from a uniquely flexible natural rubber and organic cotton top, enhanced by a thin layer of structural textile for added resilience. This vulcanized waterproof top, which follows the rider’s movements, is immediately comfortable, maintenance-free, and highly abrasion-resistant to offer the longevity for which Brooks is legendary.”

Anyone interested in becoming part of the Cambium test programme must register before May 17 via the Brooks website.
