Our inspiring overview is coming soon. For now, here is what Brooks has to say:
The B17 is our flagship model, ideal for long distance sports touring, trekking and mtb use. The Standard models feature black steel rails and steel rivets. The B17 Special features copper plated steel metalwork, and both the B17 Special and the Titanium also feature hand hammered copper rivets. The B17 model has been on the market for over 100 years, and is available for gents and ladies: the B17 (gents) and B17 S (ladies).
The B17 saddle range, intended for the touring and trekking cyclist, has been our best selling model for over a century. First introduced in the 1890s, the B17 has survived virtually unchanged, and has firmly established itself as the saddle of choice for long distance cyclists.
A new saddle should be trated with Brooks Proofide Leather Dressing to help assist the “breaking-in” process. Proofide also helps to keep the leather supple as it is carefully formulated from special ingredients to condition, preserve and shower proof your saddle. Brooks Proofide is the only substance that should be used to take care of your saddle.
