Brooks Saddle Test Ride Program


As the biggest dealer of Brooks England products in Calgary we get a lot of questions from our customers about Brooks saddles, with the most common being -

"Are they hard/uncomfortable?"

"How long do they take to break in?"

"How do I know that I'll like it if I buy it?"

All of these questions are important for sure but essentially unanswerable.  How do we know whether you'll like the saddle?  Well, we've decided to try and help you to answer that question on your own by letting you test ride a Brooks!

First, we selected a small collection of friends that already ride Brooks saddles and asked them to donate some of their ass's time to help you enjoy these saddles as much as they do.

Next, we've made available a few of Brooks most popular saddle models - B17, B15, Team Pro, Flyer, Imperial, Flyer S, B17S, and B67s Aged.

Here are the Test Pilots...

Test Pilot Kristi





















Our Test Pilots were selected based on their current love/use of Brooks Saddles and tasked with breaking in the saddles by riding them for about 3 weeks each, long enough to soften the leather but not so long that the saddle would become shaped to their particular bottoms. 

The Brooks Test Ride Program works like this - pop in or call to see which saddles are available.  We'll take your details (including a valid credit card number) and you get to ride the saddle for a few days at no charge.  If after the test ride you are convinced that a Brooks saddle is for you we'll happily sell you the model you'd like.  If however you hate the saddle and wish to never sit on one again, well, consider yourself lucky that you didn't have to pay to find that out :).

Pretty simple, right?
