Brooks B17 Standard 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. 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.

    Comments about Brooks B17 Standard Saddle:

    I've had three long rides on the seat and it feels like it's breaking in. Felt a bit stiff in the biggining however after a couple of rides it feels very comfortable. More comfortable than any other seat I've every owned. I also love the red color choice for my black LHT! Perfect combination.

          Bought this for my wife. (I already have 2 B17s and a Flyer).
          I love the appearance of the "Pre Aged" leather. Has a cool textured top and even comes pre-drilled for lacing.

              The suspended leather is a great idea. No hard plastic under seat to vibrate your rear end. perfect fit and support you on this saddle. I recommend and use nothing else.

                People talk up their hours spent breaking in these Brooks saddles, but this baby was perfectly comfortable right out of the box. The design is classic and beatiful, the leather is high grade, the color is fancy. I love this Brooks saddle and would recommend them to anyone who spends quality time on their bike. Good price and fast delivery too!

                Comments about Brooks B17 Standard Saddle:

                These saddles are legendary for a reason. My B17 has lived on a variety of bikes over the last 3 or 4 years and becomes more comfortable with each ride. Road, mountain, touring, whatever, it's always better than the others I've tried.

                That being said, I recognize that there is a bit of weight penalty with the B17, but my riding usually doesn't take that kind of thing into account, so I find it not to be much of a big deal. If you're extremely weight conscious and performance oriented, this one probably isn't for you. But for riders who value function and comfort over weight savings, this one is tops.

                It was comfortable from day one for me and is extremely comfortable after 400 miles or so, Be sure and get the Proofide crème when you get the saddle, It speeds up he break in period. Easily the best saddle I have ever owned.

                Comments about Brooks B17 Standard Saddle:

                I use the B17 on my all-weather commuter (an old Trek Multitrack Hybrid). The saddle required a short amount of time to truly break-in (I'd give it on the order of twenty to thirty hours of saddle time before it had conformed to my anatomy). It's a pleasure to ride on the saddle and remains comfortable after hours on the bike.

                Some things to bear in mind: as with any leather saddle, it requires a break in period, should be covered in inclement weather, and should also be treated on a regular basis with proof-hide or some other equivalent leather treatment. If treated well, a saddle like this will possibly last a lifetime, if not longer.
