Brooks World Traveller
To commemorate the 2012 Olympic Games in London and the end of the inaugural circumnavigation World Cycle Racing Grand Tour, premium saddle maker Brooks England Ltd. has introduced the Brooks B17 Select World Traveller 2012 Limited Edition Saddle. The new saddle celebrates Brooks’s historical associations with long distance touring at the WCR Grand Tour, a competitive circumnavigation of the Earth by bicycle. The leather surface of the new saddle features an illustration by designer Richard Phipps modelled after a piece by Frank Patterson, the illustrator of Brooks catalogues in the 1920s. Appropriately, the illustration depicts a cyclist traversing the globe. Only 2,012 of the limited edition B17 Select WTs are being made.
