Brooks B72 Saddle

The Brooks B72 saddle is a classic bicycle seat that was the standard seat in use on the Raleigh Sports 3-speed bicycle. The saddle was first released for use by Brooks in 1935 and it is classed as a light weight touring saddle. It features unique loop springs incorporated in the saddle as a suspension system that was patented by Brooks many years before.

This is a seat that has proven to feel comfortable to most people right out of the box. The main key to ensuring it feels okay is to set it up so that the seat is as near to level to the ground as possible, perhaps with the tip tilted down slightly. Once you have the seat in place it should be a matter of sliding it back to a position where the sit bones are properly placed on the web.

Here are a few of the comments that customers who have bought and used the Brooks B68 Imperial saddle have left on various sites online. In an attempt to provide a balanced view I have tried to find both positive and negative comments about the saddle.

“I have a b72 that I had to Play with the adjustments to get it right for me. Nose up/down, seat height up/down and rails forward or back. It is just starting to get to the point that I don't even realize I am sitting on it.”

“The B72 is a great saddle when riding in a more upright position and is constructed to support more weight on the back of the saddle. Note the perfect design and ease for attaching your favorite Saddlebag. A great light weight touring saddle.”
