Brooks B33 Saddle

The Brooks B33 saddle is another distinctive looking touring saddle from the Brooks City and Heavy Duty range. It is the only saddle that still features the stranded rear coils as well as a front loop. It is a saddle that has been designed to allow the weight of the rider to be evenly distributed across the entire length and breadth of the saddle. It is a little unusual in its appearance but is also very effective for the sense of floating that it provides the rider.

The coiled springs of this saddle ensure that the ride is a s soft and smooth as possible and the front coil helps to soften the saddle movement over rough terrain to protect the more sensitive parts of the body. It is a substantial saddle that is meant for the recreational cyclist who rides at a more sedate pace and will be positioned in an upright manner with the handlebars above the height of the saddle.

As with all Brooks leather saddles there will be a breaking in period for the first few times you use your new saddle. This will allow the leather of the saddle to soften and become shaped to the contours of your butt. You can speed this process along by using “Proofide” cream on the leather to assist with the softening process.

The saddle is available in black.
