+10 Saddle of Elemental Resistance.
Brooks' Cambium C17 All Weather Saddle treads new ground for the esteemed manufacturer of classic leather saddles, well-known for saddles that last a lifetime and go the distance. The C17 All Weather is just as comfortable, durable, and handsome as the beloved B17, but it's entirely leather-free, making this saddle perfect for anyone who's wanted to try a Brooks but been intimidated by the break-in period or the required maintenance. The C17 Cambium is ready to go right from the start, and you'll never need to condition or tension it.
Made of vulcanized natural rubber for forgiving support, with a nylon cover to block out wind, rain, ice, or snow. With a shape modeled after the tried-and-true B15 Swallow, the C15 will provide a superb seat for racier riders with its narrow profile and lighter weight. The fiberglass backplate features loops for mounting saddlebags or lights.
Die cast aluminum structure with stainless steel rails. Assembled from replaceable parts with no special tools required for servicing; the saddle's frame can be repaired in the event of an accident, making this truly a saddle for life.
Length: 283mm. Width: 162mm. Weight: 450 grams.

Better than original ...heres why.
The original was far more expensive and while it was instantly ready to ride, no break in required, the cloth didnt hold up with time. Within a couple months the edge on the side was torn. I expect that but not that quickly. This new one seems tighter in fabric dept...if that can make sense, but still maintain the brooks iconic look and hopefully durability. I usually bike to and from bike station within 20 min of my house and it looks way better than my original C17 within timeframe using it.
