The B17 series is the most popular of Brooks's sporty models. They are an excellent choice for touring, century rides, ultra-marathon rides and other demanding types of cycling. The B17 is most appropriate for cyclists who set their handlebars about the same height as their saddles, or a bit lower.
All of the B17 models feature bag loops to permit the use of a traditional English-style touring bag.
In years gone by, technicians, allied to the Tour riders, would purchase Brooks saddles, disassemble them and massage the hide so their oils, wines and other secret potions penetrated the leather. These solutions conditioned the leather's structure and meant a softer, more comfortable rid could be enjoyed.
The new range of Brooks Aged saddles are again manufactured using only the finest natural products. Specially formulated waxes and balms are skillfully worked into the hide resulting in a more comfortable riding experience, requiring less break-in time.
