Cambium Saddle


 I've ridden the Cambium on a 200 and 300k Brevet.

 I am sold.

 I expierienced no saddle sores. I did have to tip the nose up half a bubble from level

 to sit my trochanters in the comfort zone.

 The 300k was done in very rainy weather. It was liberating not to worry about

 protecting the saddle.

Cambium C17 Saddle

I've replaced two saddles with the Cambium C17 and have found it fits me perfectly.  I ride in cotten shorts, not bicycle padded trousers, and have done several 75 mile rides with no problems whatsoever.  Brooks hit the ball out of the park with this one.

I've been using many brooks saddles over the years.  Hesitant at first, purchased the cambium & was able to do a 3 hr bike ride first time.  Did 2 more 4 hr  bike rides and found the saddle extremely comfortable.  I am very particular about where my sit bones & parts sit and this saddle is one of the best out there..... for my bum.
