Very Nice peace of kit

really well made, and the colour is great, just fitted it to my touring bike, looks great, and so far seems comfy enough, looking forward to getting some miles under my belt and get it broken in. also bought some brooks leather bar tape to go with it and is a really nice compliment to the bike also.

Superb comfort

The Brooks B17 has been a godsend.....comfortable from the very first ride. Quality was good but the saddle is slightly misaligned with the frame which is a shame. Cost is relatively high....but what price a pain free day in the saddle O

Classic

Always wanted to try one of these and finally bought one for my touring treking bike. Was expecting it to take months to wear in but actually it has been very comfortable from the start. Have spent a 9 hour day on this saddle and was still very comfortable! Classic British product.

A classic timeless standard

I use this saddle on my touring and commuting bikes. They just get more comfortable with every ride. The smooth leather eliminates the rubbing associated with modern saddles.

Brooks B17

I have had my B17 since I was 19 I am now 43! The saddle is still amazingly comfortable and full of life. A bi annualcondition with a little of Brooks saddle ointment and a plastic bag tucked under it for those moments when it is left in the rain. Should happily do another 24 years!

Great value

I have been on the look out for a good deal on one of these for ages and the Tredz price is by far the best.

Best saddle I've ever owned comfy all day and the best modification I've made to my bike for the price bikes have come and gone but the saddle has always stayed. Getting another for my new hard tail MTB.

Brooks B17

I have used a Brooks saddle for the last ten years and it just gets increasingly comfortable. As long as I don't let it get soaked and proof ride it a couple of times a year it continues to perform as good as new but better.

Saddles Guide

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.

Anything else?

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.

See our Saddle guide for more.
