Details

New and seasoned cyclists alike appreciate Brooks' B17 saddle. It's slightly wider and longer than most seats and offers more positions and sublime support and comfort. And, all B17 saddles feature premium leather stretched over a durable chromoly frame and come with seat bag loops, too.

Brooks manufactures their saddles in Smethwick, Birmingham using machines dating back to the 19th century. Only top quality hide leather is used which is immersed in water and formed under intense pressures. Even the springs and frames are manufactured in house! Skilled hand labor is necessary every step of the way, a process that can take 90 days for one saddle!

Of all the components in a quality saddle, none is more important than the leather, and Brooks carefully examines every single piece of leather ensuring that it's the absolute highest quality. For example, while it's important that all stretch is eliminated, the flexibility of the leather must remain intact so that it can conform to the contours of your body and keep its shape for years to come. Plus, thanks to the built-in pores in its fine leather, Brooks saddles have natural ventilation and never become clammy and are always cool to ride providing top levels of comfort on even the longest rides on the warmest days. Even better, plenty of Brooks customers have used the same Brooks saddle for 30 or more years, a testament to Brooks' craftsmanship and the fine materials in their saddles.

    Comments:

    I got tired of riding gel seats that tear and wear out in just a few months,so I tried Brooks and will never use anything else. I have two sprung Brooks that feel good, but the B17's instant comfort is incredible! Somehow, they got the shape just right on this model 100 years ago, and never needed to change it.I'm not kidding;with the B17, the only thing you think about when you're riding is how you don't have to think about your rear any more.

      This is the 5th Brooks saddle I've owned, and like all Brooks saddles, this saddle has a requisite 'adjustment' period. Once the break-in period is passed though, I don't think I've ever had a more comfortable saddle. I'll be placing an order for the Team Professional this week, so that will be my 6th.

        I was using a 30 year old Team Professional someone gave me on my commuter bike but it was too hard. I just put a brand new B17 on that bike, and WOW! What a difference! I've only ridden two days on it already feels like I got off the picnic bench and sat on the suffed sofa!I can hardly wait to see how it feels after it is broken in!
