Details

Brooks' B17 Special will add a touch of class to your dream bike. It boasts handcrafted upgrades from the B17 Standard, including beautiful oversize hand-hammered brass rivets and chamfered edges for even more comfort. The B17 is a classic Brooks saddle that's slightly wider and longer than most seats and offers more positions and sublime support and comfort. And, all B17 saddles feature premium leather stretched over a durable chromoly frame and come with seat bag loops, too.

Brooks manufactures their saddles in Smethwick, Birmingham using machines dating back to the 19th century. Only top quality hide leather is used which is immersed in water and formed under intense pressures. Even the springs and frames are manufactured in house! Skilled hand labor is necessary every step of the way, a process that can take 90 days for one saddle!

Of all the components in a quality saddle, none is more important than the leather, and Brooks carefully examines every single piece of leather ensuring that it's the absolute highest quality. For example, while it's important that all stretch is eliminated, the flexibility of the leather must remain intact so that it can conform to the contours of your body and keep its shape for years to come. Plus, thanks to the built-in pores in its fine leather, Brooks saddles have natural ventilation and never become clammy and are always cool to ride providing top levels of comfort on even the longest rides on the warmest days. Even better, plenty of Brooks customers have used the same Brooks saddle for 30 or more years, a testament to Brooks' craftsmanship and the fine materials in their saddles.
