Brooks B17 Standard Saddle

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.

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.

A true classic
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.

PROS: Attractive Design, Durable, Easy To Install

CONS: Need To Be Weather-aware, Requires Breaking-in

BEST USES: Casual Riding, commuting

Always great.
Don't fear the break in. After it's over, a Brooks feels like riding in a lawn chair. This is my fourth Brooks and I'm never disappointed.

BEST USES: All Around, Commuting, Long Rides, Mountain Biking

Best saddle I've owned.
Wish I had a B17 years ago, but the racer boy in me wouldn't think of a heavy saddle, well at 55 I've seen the light.
Mine felt broke in from day one.
Would I put a B17 on a carbon race bike, no way but on my Fargo or a touring bike it's the only way to go,.

I'm happy
Great saddle. As comfortable brand new as the stock oval that came with my bike. Once broken in it'll be my lazy boy.

The do anything, go anywhere saddle
I've had B17 saddles on my road and touring bikes for 10+ years. They're still going strong. I just bought one for my mountain bike. I was a little apprehensive about putting it through the wet and muddy woods of New England, but after about 100 miles of springtime riding, the saddle is breaking in nicely, and shows no sign of damage from wetness. And it has been wet. Granted, this isn't a long sample period, but so far so good. Oh yeah, and it looks fantastic.

Pre Aged Tan
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.
