I would equate the Brooks saddles to horse saddles, being made out of the same materials. The horse saddles are in the sun for a hell of a lot longer than bicycle saddles and seem to last for a ton of years, often over 50. Plus the bike saddles aren't exposed very much at all, usually being covered by the rider's butt probably 98% of the time.
