What customers say about "Key Specs"
Brooks B17 Standard Steel Saddle
  • I rode 60 miles on the first day and it was comfortable as expected. It's only going to get better with each ride.
  • I can feel it flex underneath me and provide some amount of cushion from the road, but not so much that it feels too squishy or robs me of pedaling energy.
  • Second B17 after the first bike and saddle were stolen, super comfortable for me, long touring rides, gets better with age
  • Once I hit about 300 miles, it was magic! I've now got about 2000 miles on it now, and I'll never ever run any other seat again. It is simply amazing, 70 mile rides are nothing!
  • Excellent, easily the most comfortable bike seat I've ever owned. Started good and is only getting better as it breaks in.
Brooks B17S Aged Dark Tan
  • Good quality leather, well packaged shipment. Have this saddle on my exercise bike currently and am breaking in for the spring.
  • I did not feel any butt ache or pain since my first ride on it. Simply love the Brooks!
  • I can say for sure that this saddle is perfect! I ride it only for100 km and it already fits to my body! from the first time there was no pain for me! great product!
  • Not only does it look amazing (and it does suit a modern carbon roadie, I kid you not!) but it feels beyond amazing!
  • The S version is shorter and wider than the normal version, which is great the women with wider seat bones.

What customers say about "Features"
Brooks B17 Standard Steel Saddle
  • I have always heard these saddles were the most comfortable so I took the risk and IT WAS THE GREATEST CHOICE OF MY LIFE!
  • My first ride was 4 miles of pure comfort, and each subsequent one has gotten longer and are equally comfortable.
  • Don't let the fact that it is hard as rock out of the box fool you, it really is a superb seat!
  • But let me tell you I am a 5'2" female weighing in about 125 measley pounds and it only took 4 rides (roughly 50 miles) before it started feeling cushy!!
  • The saddle is better and more comfortable than I expected. It's important to buy a cover if you're going to be in you're going to be in wet conditions.
Brooks B17S Aged Dark Tan
  • A great saddle! I am so excited to break it in and see how long it will last. Looks amazing, too
  • The brown color looks great with the handlebar tape! Very comfortable. Classy look. Just perfect!
  • Excellent quality and very comfortable. Takes a bit to break in.
  • Beautiful design, look very hard but surprisingly confortable to commute everyday.
  • Beautiful to behold, comfortable and supportive even before it's broken in. My sole regret is that I didn't buy a Brooks thirty years ago.
