Ride the classic.

The folks at Brookes Heritage Saddles have been producing the Men’s B17 Standard Bike Saddle for over 100 years. Needless to say, they have a pretty good idea of what they’re doing. The durable full-grain leather cover keeps the B17 Saddle cool on especially warm days, and it will mold to your shape and riding style over months of use, providing you with maximum comfort and durability. This saddle features steel rails to absorb shock and reduce vibrations on rough roads or mountain passes. The abrupt taper between the rear and nose sections helps to eliminate inner-thigh rubbing and chafing, and the wide rear section lends support for your long rides.

  • Full-grain leather cover
  • Steel rails
  • Wide rear
  • Narrow nose
  • Large taper

Comfort to outlast your bike.

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I've now put over 10,000 miles on my Brooks and transferred it to 3 of my recent bikes. Still looks great with very little wear. It's a saddle, that when broken in, will be the perfect fit and most comfortable match you've ever ridden. I tour, commute, and race with mine. It has definitely been my favorite saddle.

Give it about a week of good riding (about 120 miles) to break in. And I highly recommend getting a Brooks rain cover for it too, if you plan on touring or commuting on it. The cover folds up small and straps nicely to the rail under the saddle.

Comfort to outlast your bike.

Impressed so far!

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

I recently picked up the Brooks saddle and I'm very pleased with it so far. I've applied 2 coats of Proofide, so it's starting to soften up and the color has darkened. If you're on the fence about picking one up, I would say go for it. Just make sure to buy a can of Proofide (although the saddle comes with a small amount) as well as a saddle cover if it rains.

Why did I not know about Brooks?

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

No, seriously, why did I not know about them? This saddle is amazing, new favorite product line. I am still in the breaking in stage, and can already see the potential that is around the corner. These saddles do exactly what they are designed to do, which is fit you perfectly and comfortably, albeit you are willing to break it in. Make that booty happy, and classy riding on leather.


    It is a little on the heavy/bulky side and would look funny on a carbon bike, but on my steel road bike that still rides beautifully it looks fine and it is the first seat that I can say is fantastic. The added weight compared to my old saddle is minimal when I think of my ideal cycling weight and what I do weigh now, and to get there I need to ride. This saddle keeps me on the bike longer and I ride more frequently. AWESOME.... if you're like me, it was the best thing I did to ride more!!!

    Can't beat the price

      This saddle is more than comfortable. It's comfy out of the box, but only gets better as time goes on. Absolutely love it. Looks great and the leather looks better as it wears in. My only complaint is that the seat is a little noise. Seems the rails creek when you shift your butt around or pedal.

      Generally seats will creek because the rails need to be greased or more likely the seat post collar is dirty and just needs to be wiped. Probably not the actually seat creaking.

      British Support

        I tried many saddles, but this one's the best for me. The smooth leather allows weight shifting to a different saddle position easily. This provides welcome change. These saddles are made very, very well, and should last a lifetime. The adjustment bolt is hard to change...I understand there is a special tool for it. This tightens the leather thay may stretch a bit. This should be done twice a year for the leather to be kept taught.

        It's the Sh*t!

          Great saddle!

          As everyone knows, it takes a few miles to work in, but after that: smooth sailing and it looks awesome!

          Not for everyone, but if it is your school of cool, you won't be disappointed.
