The keystone of Brooks' saddle line. The B17 combines durability, comfort, and style with an affordable price. They are a bit heavier and take longer to break in than more contemporary designs, but the comfort they provide once broken in is why so many still swear by them. Available in various colors, all with black steel rails. Loops for traditional English-style touring bag. 280mm Length x 170mm Width. 530 grams (weights may vary due to leather thickness). Made in England.

Comfortable seat

Second Brooks Saddle I have purchased. First one on a Trek Madone. Bought this one for Trek Checkpoint. Takes a while for the saddle to break in, but once it does it is a comfortable ride on the 100 long rides.

Excellent Saddle

The honey colored Brooks B17 saddle is a classic, and as a rider on Brooks for nearly 60 years, I can say that the quality remains. Be prepared for a reasonably long period of break in, but know that the reward of a close fitting and personalized saddle are well worth it.

I believe I've finally found the right saddle

Like other cyclists I have amassed a bin of saddles and spent $100s in quest of the comfortable seat. I decided to buy the Brooks B17 and believe this is the one. My bike is a Specialized Roubiax and I weight 215 lbs. Riding 10 - 15 miles daily I did question my purchase of this rock hard leather saddle the first day, but it was comfortable. With each daily ride I'd look for indications of the saddle conforming to my bottom, if it happened I wasn't seeing it but again the seat was comfortable. After two months the saddle and I are molding to one another. This saddle meets my comfort requirement, but then I'm not a century rider.

I have 4 brooks saddles and will always use them. They are comfortable out of the box - look and feel great and continue to get more comfortable as you use them. Try one.

Great saddle and a great price at Bike Tires Direct.

Nowhere as hard to ride on from the start for me. Yes, it's stiff like a new pair of leather shoes, but not uncomfortable at all. Been riding it for a month and I love it. I know I will have this saddle for many years to come. I have it on my hybrid commute bike and I put a small amount of Profride on the top and a bit more to cover the entire underside. That's it - now time to ride.

Tried one, now have three

Had a leather saddle 40 years ago, and gave it away with the bike. Was trying to ride on the cheap for many years thinking that the new technology had to be better. Wrong. Tried over a dozen different saddles, finally went back to the Brooks B17. Was as good as any of the others, and only got better. Now have three for four bikes, including a B17 Imperial on a full custom Ti roadster. Fourth bike? Kid rides it in another state, that's why I don't have 4 Brooks. Expensive? Yes. Worth it? After 450 miles in 7 days over Colorado mountains with no saddle sores or hot spots, abso-freaking-lutely!

Brooks Saddles always provide great performance and value.

As a general rule you either love Brooks saddles or don't care for them at all. For those of us who love them (and the concept of the 'leather hammock') you can hardly go wrong with any of their products and the B-17 is probably the best all-around saddle they make. Variations in leather can make a softer or harder saddle, but they're easily adjustable and the design and workmanship hasn't changed over the years. Brooks provides a very comfortable and reliable product.

Great leather saddle at a good value

Been riding Brooks saddles for years. Very comfortable once broken in after a few hundred miles of riding. Remember to tension the saddle when it begins to sag by tightening the bolt at the front of the saddle. Use Proofide to condition the saddle and aid in softening it more quickly.

Classy saddle for my commuter bike

Scored this saddle at a discounted price here on BTD (thank you) and am very pleased with it. We've all probably read about the break in period and the discomfort associated with it, but honestly, I don't find that the Brooks B17 is all that uncomfortable straight out of the box. I set it up using a level so that the profile is absolutely horizontal. The packaging included a little pouch of Brooks Proofide (about enough for the first application), but I would recommend purchasing a vial of the stuff so that you have it on hand when the 3-4 months mark rolls around. This saddle looks really sharp on my Charge Plug 3 which has a utilitarian flat khaki finish. I complemented the brown saddle with new brown Salsa bar tape and I have to say it looks pretty sweet.

Pretty comfy right out of the box!

Two summers ago, I spent a lot of time and energy and money on finding the 'right' saddle for my road bike. This summer, I bought a flat-bar urban style bike used, it came with a well-used Brooks B17 that was in need of some TLC. I found I liked this old saddle, and decided to try a new version that would break in to my anatomy instead of someone else's.

I'm amazed at how comfortable this leather saddle is right from the start and reportedly, the comfort will only get better as I break it in. I'll keep the fancy (and hard) Selle I bought two summers ago for awhile, just in case, but it might be showing up on Craigslist next season!

Unparalleled comfort once broken in.

I bought this Brooks B 17 saddle for my newest bike. I already have B17s on my Cannondale Synapse, and on my Raleigh touring bike. The Brooks on my touring bike has more than 14,000 miles on it. I've ridden it in all weather, all day on multiple day tours.

In my experience, the break-in period is 500 -700 miles. Treat the saddle as Brooks recommends, and you will be rewarded with long-lasting comfort.

Surprised by the immediate comfort and a friend had one too!

Had a Brooks saddle when I was young and I remember thinking that this seat feels good . As a fifteen year old kid, I road this saddle and it was comfortable. Fast forward forty years to now. It feels good still. Short break in and I love the way it rides the road. The other synthetic padded saddles....they leave me constantly adjusting my position. There is something about a quality Brooks leather saddle ,-)

Wow did this take time to get use to. Finally after a few hundred miles I can feel the saddle giving a little and maybe my sit bones are adjusting. I see the saddle being a great choice with time.
