The handsome Swift was the youngest gentleman's racing saddle in the Brooks range. It features delicately hand skived lower sides, where a thin stripe of the leather top surface is cut back, thus exposing the lighter coloured suede beneath which makes for an attractive visual accent and greater comfort when pedalling. The large copper rivets at the nose and tail are also hammered by hand, commensurate with our usual high level of attention to detail. As is the case with all of our hand manufactured saddles, the Swift proudly sports a metal nameplate at the rear, and in addition two embossed graphic details on the sides featuring the saddle name and incorporating an icon of a Swift in flight.
On introduction the Swift was offered only with lightweight titanium rails. However, due to popular demand, since 2008 we also offer the Swift Chrome, with traditional steel underpinnings, finished to our usual high standards with bright polished chromium plate.

Historically, Brooks Saddles were made with small rivets. Racers in the continental tours would have their Brooks Saddles re-finished with larger copper rivets to increase longevity, as they are gentler on the leather top. This practice was adopted by Brooks decades ago. A single badly-aimed hammer blow can irreparably damage the leather, so the utmost care must be taken during manufacture. Each copper rivet on all Special saddle models is carefully hand hammered by skilled craftsmen.
