Not the chafe. The dreaded chafe. Once it begins, there’s no stopping the creep along your bum cheeks, every slight movement adding to the sting. 

Banish bum cheek blues with the iconic Brooks B17. First introduced in the 1890s and their best-selling saddle for over a century, the B17 has remained largely unchanged ever since. Although its competition days may long behind, the Brooks B17 has since cemented itself as the saddle of choice for long distance cycle tours. 

Manufactured in the UK, a tough 5mm thick leather top is stretched from a thin metal cantle plate at the rear, over the rails to the nose piece and secured by rivets.  This durable leather top eventually wears to the shape of the user’s ‘sit bones’ for a superior riding experience. With the right leather-care a Brooks saddle can easily last a lifetime of riding. 

It may seem counterintuitive, but firm and less cushioned saddles are proven to reduce friction while cycling which protects against chafing and rubbing. Should the hammock-like design of the saddle start to sag too much, the leather can be re-tensioned by tightening a bolt in the nose piece.
