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.

I love this saddle
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.

CONS: Heavy

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

quick break in process
I've heard these take a long time to break in, but I noticed it was comfortable right off the bat. It took me a handful of rides to get the position where it felt right, but I settled on a slight tight upward form the nose.
There have been some sore days, but for how new the saddle is, I'm shocked it hasn't been worse. Pretty soon it will be so fantastically comfortable. Have about 100 miles on it so far, in two weeks.
I ordered the black and have it on a Salsa Vaya Claris. Happy riding.

Great seat
This is the most comfortable seat I've owned. Was concerned with the salt water, but with simple maintenance. The seat is as good as new. Will be getting this added to my other two road bikes..

Brooks B17 Standard
The Brooks B17 Standard Saddle arrived exactly as advertised. After an initial application of Proofide, the saddle was installed and break-in is underway. The saddle is breaking in well and is already aat least as comfortable as other synthetic saddles. I expect many thousands of miles of comfortable riding with this saddle.

Hard at first, but beginning to feel comfortable
Normally I have my saddles about level, but this one likes to be slightly nose-up. Still making minor adjustments to the fit, and it seems to be softening as I ride more.

Did I mention it looks sweet? Cause it does.

Wanted a Brooks since the 1st shop I worked at in the early 90's. Same quality as back them before Raleigh bought them. Hope to work it in to look 50 years old. The only saddle you could ever say that about. Fairly comfortable pee-break in
Makes the bike look and feel like a classic high end bike

Great saddle once it's broken in
I have been cycling for around 35 years and I love this saddle. Once it's broken in ( yes it's painful and might take some time ) you will never want to ride with anything else. Just get through the break in time and you will be glad you did.

The only saddle
No idea why other saddles exist. Marginal weight gains aren't worth it for other saddles that won't last your lifetime and won't achieve a perfect fit.
