Brooks wants testers for new Cambium C13 saddle

Get your name down for a chance to be involved in the testing phase of lightweight racing saddle

Brooks is inviting you to be a tester for the new version of its Cambium saddle, the C13.

“This newest evolution is an improved version of a lightweight racing saddle,” says Katharina Schreiber of Brooks. “Like the other Cambium releases, we are organising a testing phase to collect real world feedback before launching on the market.”

We ran a story a couple of years ago when Brooks was looking to select a group of 100 cyclists worldwide to test a previous Cambium model over a month, and to offer feedback.

Now Brooks would like to recruit testers to do a similar job with the Cambium C13.

The Cambium saddles combine the classic Brooks ‘hammock’ saddle design with modern materials.

John Stevenson loved the Brooks Cambium C17 saddle that he review here on last year, scoring it nine out of 10 and calling it “supremely comfortable”.

Brooks will select testers from those who register at
