Brooks B17 Special Saddle

The Brooks B17 Special saddle uses the classic B17 design and has added a slightly different look to it by courtesy of the use of copper rivets and rails on top and underneath the saddle. The chamfered sides ensure the comfort on the inner thighs and the row of three holes on top provides the necessary air flow that the other B17s also give.

There will be a breaking in period required when buying this 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 protect the leather as well as curing and softening the leather so that it will become a comfortable part of your bike.

The saddle is available in a choice of colors: black, honey, brown or green.

As well as the very successful Standard model there is a range of fine saddles bearing the B17 tag including the lighter Titanium, the Select, Aged and the B17 Narrow, a racing saddle.
