Cambium, in botany, is a tissue layer that provides cells for plant growth. Brooks Cambium is a range of vegan saddles made from vulcanized natural rubber and organic cotton enhanced by a thin layer of structural textile for added resilience and legendary Brooks longevity. The uniquely flexible, maintenance-free, waterproof top is designed to follow the rider's movements for immediate comfort and ease of use. To the eye, the C17may appear quite racy in its shape and lines, which indeed it is. A saddle you can really settle into, the geometry and dimensions are based closely on that of Brooks'' most recognizable model, the B17, ensuring the same timeless comfort mile after mile.

They cheapened this one up compared to the previous C17 I had, the rails are chromoly steel with a lame powder coating that tends to make the saddle slip a little and scrape the coating off. The large pieces that fix the rails are plastic, not stainless steel like they used to be. Take the old stainless hardware off your older C17 if you have one, polish it up with sparkle stainless cleaner, use Loctite blue, and replace the cheap garbo on this one. The top is great, and shouldn't fade as fast as the old canvas one I had. Still a great saddle, well the actual 'cambium' top anyway.
