Brooks Cambium C17s Description
The Ladies version of the C17 Carved, offering the same cutout section to the top to alleviate pressure and give a softer ride, also with a shorter nose which better corresponds to the female anatomy.
The C17 Carved is made from the same vulcanized natural rubber and organic cotton canvas as use for the C17, with an added cutout section to the top, which alleviates pressure in the perineal region experienced by some long distance cyclists, supporting comfort on longer rides. The additional flexibility absorbs bumps and vibrations from the road, functioning much in the way of a shock absorbing seatpost.
The cambium is our favourite saddle of all time, its super comfortable for long days in the saddle, durable, and adds a touch of class to any bike.
We recommend the C17 for touring, mountain biking, or rando bikes, and the C15 for road riding, or anyone that prefers a narrow sportier saddle.
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 C17 may 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 our most recognizable model, the B17, ensuring the same timeless comfort mile after mile. The C17s is slightly shorter than the C17 and more suited to the female anatomy.
