Handmade in England from beautiful and durable 100% vegetable tanned leather that will mould and shape individually to each rider, the B17 is finished with premium steel rivets and undercarriage. This saddle was not a great success – some riders complained that it was not stiff enough laterally. Our Aged leather is softer than our regular leather; we achieve this softness by adding a lot more moisturizer to the leather during its preparation (tanning) process. Note: We recommend using the Brooks Leather Saddle Care Kit (product code: 2322230) or the Brooks Proofide Single saddle grease (product code 531267) for regular care. With vegetable tanned leather treated with special waxes for more supple performance straight out of the box, the B17 Softened is fitted with eyelets to be laced to the desired tension and to preserve the saddle shape.

A comfortable saddle from day one, the B17 Softened is an ideal saddle for commuting, touring and general use. The badges on the rear have changed too – early examples had a lovely fretted badge and in the 1960s there was even a period when no rear badge was fitted. It’s not just about reaching your destination but appreciating the journey and wanting to do it repeatedly; our Brooks Male Saddle will make you want to hop on your Brompton day in, day out. The other main change has been to the saddlebag loops which almost all B17s (barring most Sprinters, the B17F (Special) and Competition) have been fitted with.Ich vermisse etwas die Schnürung der Sattelränder, mit der sich das breiter werden und das Einfedern regulieren lässt, so wie auf meinem 10 Jahre alten B 17 in braun. Cyclists who do not have mudguards on their bicycle, or who drive frequently through water, do tend to put a one-off application of Proofide (and leave it on) on the underside of leather to act as a water barrier from splashing. Leather saddles mould to fit the rider’s shape and the polished leather has just the right amount of friction for the rider to sit on. A new range of lightweight models with aluminium cantleplates and stainless steel rails was launched.

Middle widths are often used for touring or commuting when the spinal angle of the rider is in a 45 to 60 degrees position.

It’s the ideal bike saddle for all cycling adventures including commuting, gravel cycling, road cycling as well as touring and trekking use. After the break-in period, it is normal and proper to tension the saddle to retain its shape and comfort. The leather is also a naturally breathable material and moulds to the unique shape of the rider for a more comfortable ride.

As well made as the B17 Champ Narrow it replaces, it's comfortable, or will be when it's fully broken in. This saddle is great for city cycling, long distance touring, gravel and bikepacking and road cycling.The main design of the Brooks badge embossed on the side flaps has just had three major changes though of course there have been many little detail modifications. It has been over 110 years now since it came on the market - the B17 Standard saddle belongs to the classics from Brooks. Then contact your credit card company, it may take some time before your refund is officially posted. The Brooks B17 saddle was originally launched sometime in the mid 1890s – it’s not been possible to establish the exact year.
