Chances are, if someone tells you they have a Brooks saddle, it will be the B17. Featured as far back as the 1898 Brooks catalogue, the B17 was designed as a long haul touring or bike-packing option.

The B17 Special takes the same shape as the B17 but features copper plated steel rails and copper rivets that have been hand hammered into place. This literal hands on approach ensures all Brooks saddles are, to an extent, unique and will become more and more comfortable over time - as long as they are well ridden and well looked after.

    Brooks B17 Green and copper rails. Excellent saddle right off the bat and getting better. Took a long time to respond to this review because I was making sure it was the real deal. It is!!!!!! People are always looking to cut weight here and there. This saddle isn't the heaviest but it isn't the lightest either. My theory is, if I need to cut weight it is usually around my waist. Cut back on that last piece of pizza or only one 6 pack for the week. Ride more and more. Thats where this Brooks saddle comes in. It just fits you and makes those long days in the saddle much more enjoyable. I mean you just think about everything else besides the saddle. Forget about it and ride.

    This is a perch that needs hours invested on it for the leather to mould to your sit bones & become unique and bespoke to your individual bottom. Straight out of the box it is already more comfy than the high-tech plastic model it replaced and adds oodles of class to boot.
