Brooks Accessories from saddle care to tools & totes, everything you need to complete your kit & care for your leather can be found here.
Leather saddles are just like leather shoes & furniture. They benefit from care & maintenance. To preserve your saddle’s leather & keep it supple & comfortable. Brooks are leather masters, so they are particular in their recommendation of what to use to care for your saddle. Their Proofide is designed to work with the particular vegetable tanned leather they use in their saddles. And it ensures the long-life you can be sure your saddle will have.
Another important factor in getting good value & a long life from your saddle is the effect of rain. Like any leather product, your saddle won’t come off too badly from being rained on. But riding a wet saddle repeatedly or allowing it to stay wet for a while will eventually create a problem. It may not be a big problem, but eventually it may effect the saddle feel.
We recommend anyone expecting to leave their bike locked up in the rain while they are at work or school to consider a saddle rain cover!
