What customers say about "Key Specs"
Brooks Team Pro Bike Saddle
  • After 200 miles, it is as comfortable as the C15 and has barely even broken in. I'm looking forward to this saddle getting even more comfortable after more miles.
  • If you couple this saddle with padded cycling shorts/pants, you cannot beat the comfort. The leather is a littler slippery to sit on, but it gets better with time.
  • While the Brooks is heavier than modern saddles, it is well-made, long-lasting if cared for (mainly covered from rain), and is comfortable.
  • They require only a little more TLC and once they're broke in, are the most comfortable saddle available.
  • This is the nicest saddle I've seen. Top quality in terms of design and function. Plus, the leather is so smooth that there is no rubbing or chafing.
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.

What customers say about "Features"
Brooks Team Pro Bike Saddle
  • Fine looking saddle built with what you would expect for this price point from Brooks.
  • Best looking saddle I have owned. This seat looks so good I now feel my bicycle is not worthy of it.
  • Just like a baseball glove. It takes a little to break in then becomes extremely comfortable. I'll never buy another saddle.
  • I have about 4,000 miles on my saddle, and it is extremely comfortable. Perfectly shaped for me, and I wouldn't be without it.
  • This is a very comfortable saddle. I have used it on several rides over 50 miles and did not have any issues.
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.
