Description

The Brooks B17 saddle was originally launched sometime in the mid 1890s – it’s not been possible to establish the exact year. It looks really great on the bike and will no doubt last longer than the gel filled Italian elastomer thing that fell apart.

Comfort and style like this encourage more regular riding, meaning more opportunities for exploration, spontaneity, and independence. In the post-war years Brooks also marketed similar saddles under the Lycett, Wrights and Leatheries names – these were all cheaper quality saddles. As well made as the B17 Champ Narrow it replaces, it's comfortable, or will be when it's fully broken in. Whether you're just getting started or an experienced climber, whatever your adventure needs, we have the gear. Carefully formulated from special ingredients to condition, preserve and showerproof, helping protect the leather supple and to keep it supple.A year later it was renamed the Flyweight Flyer and a Flyweight version of the Narrow was introduced. Our leather saddles come in different shapes and styles depending on what kind of bike or riding position. Our Aged leather is softer than our regular leather; we achieve this softness by adding a lot more moisturizer to the leather during its preparation (tanning) process.

We are able to ship smaller goods (no bikes, frames, rims, wheels) to Europe/North America/Australasia; please ask us about carriage costs. The thick leather of the saddle molds to the rider over time, creating a personalized fit and overall improved comfort. For a bicycle part to be still in production for probably nearly 110 years is really quite unique – only matched by another saddle from the Brooks range the B90.

Management of the site was taken over by Chater-Lea in 2020 who undertook a comprehensive redesign and rebuild to enable future generations to continue to enjoy. It’s not just about reaching your destination but appreciating the journey and wanting to do it time and time again. The Imperial also sports perforated sides of a pattern that will be recognised by those who spent any time around the back of a 1970's school bike shed and is supplied with laces in black, white, red and blue. Ich wollte nach meinem C17 einen härteren Sattel, aber mit diesen Nachteilen muß ich wohl doch wieder auf einen Sportsattel wechseln. The leather top is suspended over the saddle rail to create a suspended moulded seat, similar to a hammock, for tailored lasting comfort.
