Bicycle Saddles Examined and Explained

Brooks B66 Saddle

The Brooks B66 saddle is a very popular sprung model of saddle that is perfect for the recreational cyclist who rides with a more upright posture. These saddles go back to the earliest Brooks releases and provide the rider with the type of suspension and support that has ensured they have remained at the top of the popularity list for decade after decade.

The B66 is a wide saddle as well as featuring the distinctive coiled springs underneath. The design aims to cater for the cyclist who is merely looking to ride their bike at a gentle, more relaxed pace. This is why the saddle is one of the integral members of the company’s City and Heavy Duty line of saddles. You will note from the weight of the saddle that this is not the type of saddle where you are going to stress too much about carrying an extra gram or two.

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 a choice of three colors: black, brown or honey.

What the Manufacturer Says

The B66 and B66 S are among BROOKS’s most loved products, having been on the market since 1927. Classically sprung with double rails for supreme comfort, B66 and B66 S are the ideal all-rounders for daily city or touring use in a rather upright posture. They are most appropriate for cyclists who set their handlebars higher than their saddles. In general, the more upright your riding posture, the wider, and more heavily sprung, the saddle you should choose.
