It is the oldest Brooks saddle and the longest running saddle in the history of cycling. The B-17 saddle has been sold since 1896 and has never been taken out of production.

4 / 5

Requires patience and a sore bottom for some time.

- Richard 22 October 2022

I’ve had many seats none of which are properly comfortable. Everyone who seems to know says Brooks is the ultimate answer. So far I’m happy as I remain confident of comfort and like owning it.

Pros & Cons

Craftsmanship
I live in hope that it will become comfortable
It’s a thing of beauty
It’s blo*dy hard
Need to also buy the magic softening cream
Still hard after 150 miles

5 / 5

Try for yourself, won't be disappointed (you can always return at Mantel in 30 days)!

- Tomasz 7 July 2022

Just riding it for past 3 weeks, some 250km done. Everyday feels more comfortable. I apply Prooofide as advised, once a week for 1st 4 weeks, then will do every 6mths. But it's a first saddle that gives me pleasure to ride for more then 30km (my weight just below 100kg)

Pros & Cons

Feeling better and better everyday on this saddle
Look and feel
Natural material
Needs rain protector at hand
Needs time to settle
Rather on high side of cost

5 / 5

Brooks leather saddle is Total Quality

- Nick 21 June 2022

Very easy to fit and adds a touch of class to any bicycle

Pros & Cons

Quality leather
Will in time mould to riders shape

5 / 5

Try it first if you can like any saddle

- Paul 24 January 2022

works for me - always comfortable - next one will be for the Brompton (why such a cheap saddle on a premium bike?)

Pros & Cons

build quality
comfort
fit for me
won't suit everyone

5 / 5
