Brooks B17 Short Special Saddle

Chances are, if someone tells you they have a Brooks saddle, it will be the B17. Featured as far back as the 1898 Brooks catalogue, the B17 was designed as a long haul touring or bike-packing option.

The B17 Special, in this short guise for women or smaller riders, takes the same shape as the B17 but features copper-plated steel rails and copper rivets that have been hand hammered into place.

This literal hands-on approach ensures all Brooks saddles are, to an extent, unique and will become more and more comfortable over time - as long as they are well ridden and well looked after.
