Details

Globally renowned and truly timeless, the B17 Standard is the saddle that secured Brooks' place in cycling history. It's been in constant production since 1910, providing cyclists around the world with over one hundred years of sublime support and unrivaled comfort. Each B17 Standard shapes itself to its rider, leading to a personal, customized saddle that fits like no other. And of course, it features Brooks' full grain, premium leather top secured by their trademark rivets for the ultimate in style, comfort, and durability.

Brooks saddles are legendary.
Brooks saddles have been handcrafted in England since 1870. They are manufactured 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 so they never become clammy and remain comfortable 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.

The Best Saddle Money Can Buy

  • Durable

Cons

  • Heavy

Best Uses

  • All Around
  • Commuting

Comments:

I was hesitant to spend $100+ on a saddle, but my butt has thanked me. It takes awhile to break-in, but no more than a few hundred miles. There are all sorts of ways I've read to speed up the process, but I went the honest route. Other than the comfort the saddle classes up pretty much any bike - they're great looking. Oh and they're handmade in England, I can always justify spending a little more on something that isn't plunked out of a machine.

    There's a reason Brooks saddles have been around forever: they're awesome. While not perfect for every use once they're broken in I believe they're the finest saddle you could ask for for most utilitarian purposes and they have a great classic look, which doesn't hurt.

      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!
