General Information
The Conquest is Brooks’ high-quality off-road saddle, with higher-quality butt leather, and solid copper 12mm rivets for more durability. It’s a four-wire frame, with coil springs at the rear. The top is similar to that of a Professional Select, with skived skirts (to prevent chafing the rider’s thighs), and three ventilation holes in the top. The quality is obvious: my modern Brooks Team Professional’s leather is from 3.9 to 4.3mm thick; this one is from 4.5 to 5.2mm. So don’t think you’ll be wearing this out any time soon.

Weight is 790 gms; size is 290 mm long by 150mm wide.
Date-code is 6B9 – for Feb 1996 production.
