After struggling with comfort issues caused by my stock saddle on 60+ mile rides I called in to chat to Ray about my options. With a couple of my club already using Brooks saddles and swearing (positively) about how it transformed their bikes, I was open to giving Brooks a try on my CX/touring/winter workhorse bike. Ray fitted a demo Cambium C15 saddle and after curing some initial squeaks I did a weeks worth of mixed distance rides. First impressions were that the saddle is firm, however there is still some give/flexibility when you’re riding, and after a 3 hour+ ride there were no twinges from “down below”. As agreed Ray then switched the saddle to the Carved version, what a revelation!
From the first few turns of the crank the comfort level is a huge leap even over the previous test saddle, what you notice is that “hammock” effect – the saddle flex’s so much more with the cut out giving you “straight out of the box” comfort. So, if you’re also suffering from numbness from your existing saddle here’s a possible solution for you, have a chat with Ray and the team and try a Brooks, I’m certainly sold.
