Brooks Proofide Leather Dressing

If you’ve recently purchased a leather Brooks saddle from us (and we do sell quite a few) we strongly encourage you to also pick up some Proofide to treat the leather periodically. 

Brooks’ website does a good job of describing the product and its application so we’re gonna take the lazy way out and copy and paste what they say about it below. 

We have plenty of 25ml cases in stock now so come and grab one anytime. 

From Brooks:

New saddles should be treated with Brooks Proofide leather dressing to help assist the breaking-in process.

Proofide keeps the leather supple as it is specially formulated from natural ingredients to condition, preserve and shower proof your saddle. Proofide is the only substance that should be used to care for your Brooks Leather Saddle. 

Apply a little Proofide to the finished side of the leather. Allow the Proofide to permeate until dry and then polish off. Proofide should be used several times during the ‘breaking-in’ period and every 3-6 months thereafter. 

On bicycles not fitted with mudguards, an initial application to the underside of the saddle will be beneficial, this needs not to be polished off. The leather gets its colour during the tanning process and it is possible, therefore, that some colour residues will remain. 

It is recommended to polish the saddle with a soft cloth before first use.
