Brooks B17 Narrow Saddle

The Brooks B17 saddle is a classic and one of the most iconic saddles available. The B17 Narrow saddle has taken the original B17 saddle and shaved it down with an even narrower shape to allow the rider to move easily forward and back on the seat. The narrow profile of the saddle means that there is virtually no instance of rubbing or chafing on the insides of the legs. This is the type of saddle that any person who has experienced the type of persistent chafing on the inner thighs will welcome.

For the longer distance rider, the fact that you have a greater area to move around on may be seen as a big advantage as you seek to relieve pressure. Regardless of whether you are racing or touring the B17 Narrow will provide you with a comfortable ride at a reasonable price.

What the Manufacturer Says

This is a sportier version of our globally renowned and truly timeless B17, a design so good that it has been in constant production since having featured in our 1910 catalogue. The B17 Narrow is perfectly suited to both thoroughbred racing bicycles or sports touring bikes, and has long been the first choice of sporting cyclists who prefer the freedom of thigh movement.

Here are a few of the comments that customers who have bought and used the Brooks B17 Narrow saddle have left on various sites online. In an attempt to provide a balanced view I have tried to find both positive and negative comments about the saddle.

“I got my Brooks b17 narrow in antique brown on Monday and applied the proofide and ready to go (after the application dried). The feel is not so bad, I compare it to my old leather ortho shoe inserts/arch supports I had when I was a child - conformed really well. The only thing that I struggle with at the moment is the slippery feel of it. With the peddling stroke, I feel myself sliding forward a pinch. The top tube could be touch long - but not by much.”

“The B17 Narrow is only a little more narrow than the Brooks Heritage Saddles B17 Standard Saddle - Men's but if you have thicker more muscular thighs you'll appreciate the greater clearance. But you sacrifice a little support further back.”

“The Brooks B17N is a higher saddle compared to the rails. I had to set the seat post down a half inch, not a problem, lots of play there. The problem for some people, including me, is that the rails of the B17N are more forward than other saddles. So I had to buy a zero offset seat post to get the right front/back position.”
