Brooks B17 S Standard Saddle

The Brooks B17 S Standard saddle is the female version of the flagship touring and trekking saddle, the B17 Standard. The basic materials with which it has been constructed is the same as the B17 Standard with the black steel rails underneath and copper plated steel metalwork around the perimeter.

The top of the saddle features three small holes that have been included to provide some ventilation and the sides are smooth and contoured so that there is little chance of rubbing for the inner thighs. The saddle also has quality saddle bag loops included on the frame.

Where the S Standard differs from the original is in the dimensions of the saddle measuring a little shorter and marginally wider. It is also not quite as high and all of this is to better fit the female body.

As with the B17 Standard there will be a breaking in period required after buying the saddle, as there is with all leather saddles. The use of Proofide cream on a regular basis during the first few weeks of riding will help to cure the saddle and soften the leather so that it will become a comfortable part of your bike.

The saddle is available in a choice two colors: black or honey.

There are other Brooks B17 S saddles that have been designed for the female form and these are the Aged, Imperial and Select saddles.
