In the 90s of the 19th century J.B. Brooks & Co. introduced the first saddles with a registered cut-out shape that helped preventively against seat pressure. This innovative solution can be found in saddles by a variety of manufacturers these days. The Imperial saddle was taken out of production by Brooks in the 50's.

Interesting gap in the middle
Seems OK but leather already cracking - need to break out the saddle soap
Beautifully made, confortable part of English cycling heritage
A truely beautifully made saddle which has rightfully earned its place in cycling folk law. Even from the first ride I found this saddle far more comfy than my stock saddle and I did a 30 mile ride straight away with no problems. Supplied with 4 different coloured laces to customise your saddle and a packet of proofade to help break it in. I can't recommend this saddle highly enough!!
