The Brooks Imperial B17 is a traditional leather saddle which will need 'breaking in' so it will sculpt to your body - kind of like a not-as-technical memory foam mattress. Brooks saddles have a timeless and traditional quality and are among some of the comfiest around. While this is no good for the impatient among us, it does mean that you'll have the perfect fit, so it's a worthy investment of your time in the long run.
The Imperial B17 is Brooks' most versatile sports saddle incorporating a 'cut-out' top for pressure relief.
A great saddle, very well made and comfortable. The only reason I give 4 stars for build quality is that I would prefer this saddle to be riveted with the larger hand hammered copper rivets, but this option is not available on this saddle. I have several brooks saddles and this style is my favourite, after that is a modified flyer special which I have on my Penny Farthing. I feel the price for brooks saddles is a little high, but it's like the Apple brand, your paying more for the branding, just my opinion though!

What are saddles?
The saddle is your bicycle seat.
Who needs a saddle?
Saddles do become worn over time and need replacing, but many people choose to upgrader the standard saddle on their new bike to something more suitable for their needs.
What are the choices?
You can choose saddles in different widths, for male or female riders. There’s not really a clear division between road and mountain bike saddles, so you need to choose a shape and type suited for your physiology as much as your riding style.
What should I buy with them?
Saddles are only one half of the backside comfort equation – reward your rear with a padded set of cycling shorts for full comfort.
There’s no single shape of saddle that’s comfortable for everyone – some people prefer deep padding and lots of cleverly designed pressure relief cut outs. Others favour a flat, no nonsense design.
