A new saddle should be treated with the Brooks Proofide leather dressing to help assist the 'breaking-in' process. Proofide is the only substance that should be used to care for your Brooks Leather Saddle.
"This wax seems exspensive but is very good and will last for a long time, it is the only thing you can put on the saddle so it can breath and not over soak the saddle which will destroy it!. It also will not mark your cloth to much after one appliaction, use it 1-2 times every month if you ride evey day, if not once every 6 months! A must product for Brooks saddles."
