The latest addition to the Brooks range of lifestyle products is their Metropolitan collection of backpacks, holdalls and totes — all designed to integrate seamlessly and stylishly with your cycling lifestyle.
In a smooth marketing move, Brooks has coordinated the new range of bags with a series of routes around London, New York and Berlin, a mini online guidebook, as it were, directed by local creative types.
Deft marketing aside, if Brooks’ new range of bags can match the quality and performance of their Cambium saddle, then you can expect top-notch construction from modern and considered materials, designed to be durable and weatherproof.
