Brooks B17 Imperial Narrow Saddle

Brooks B17 Imperial Narrow Saddle

The Brooks B17 is an English made leather saddle that has truly stood the test of time. Being Brooks’ flagship model for over 100 years, the B17 has been the go-to leather saddle for long distance touring, trekking, and all-terrain use. The Imperial edition features a cutout to reduce perineal pressure. Another distinctive feature of the B17 Narrow Imperial are the perforations along the lower edge of the leather sides, which are threaded together one side to the other by a lace. This can be adjusted to help maintain the saddle’s shape and provide comfort in the long term. Tying the leather lace tightly pulls the sides of the saddle closer together, conversely loosening the lace enables the saddle sides to splay slightly further apart. This sideways fine-tuning of the B17 Narrow Imperial is of course in addition to the usual fore-and-aft tensioning mechanism common to all Brooks Saddles.

Cyclist of any ilk can appreciate a comfortable saddle as it’s one of few actual contact points when riding a bicycle. One thing anyone who’s ridden a Brooks saddle will tell you is that they really do improve with age; by treating the leather properly and simply putting in miles, the saddle will begin to break-in and form to the rider’s seat bones creating a comfortable and personalized riding experience.

Best of the best
Brooks makes different saddles in different widths. The B17-N is narrower than the normal B-17 (Hint: That's what the N stands for)

Unlike previous reviewer's statement they do not need to be broken in if you set them up right and buy the proper width. If you have narrow hips get the N model if you have a heavier bone structure get the wider models.

Set the saddle up with the nose just a little higher than the rear, apply some Brooks Proflide or other leather conditioner and enjoy miles of smiles.

PROS: Very Comfortable, Never wears out

CONS: Somewhat Heavy

Best saddle I've bought yet
I was a little hesitant getting this saddle as it was a big purchase and at the price you can't really experiment. I got help deciding on which saddle to purchase from Brooks England's website and the crew at Jenson USA only confirmed what Brooks told me. I have put a few rides in on this saddle, maybe about 120 miles so far and as it breaks in it only gets more comfortable. I highly recommend the Brooks ProofHide conditioner along with the purchase of the saddle (helps with the break-in process). If you're looking for a saddle to do long distance riding on, or just a saddle that will be comfortable for a long time look into a Brooks.
