Bicycle Saddles Examined and Explained

Brooks B17 Standard Saddle

The Brooks B17 Standard saddle is the flagship touring and trekking saddle in the range. The Standard model features 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.

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 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.

It is necessary to distinguish this particular saddle as the B17 Standard to set it apart from the other B17 saddles in the range including the lighter Titanium, the Select, Aged, Imperial and the B17 Narrow, a racing saddle. The saddle is also available designed specifically for the female riders and this is the B17 S Standard.
