Hand-hammered rivets and special finishes characterise the B17 Special Saddle. Like all of our leather saddles, each beautiful B17 Special emerges by hand from our Smethwick, England factory where it has been carefully finished with hand-hammered copper rivets to add life to the saddle by protecting the durable vegetable tanned leather. A comfortable bike seat thanks to its unique design and hammock-like performance, the B17 Special flexes with every pedal stroke and will mould specifically to each rider, achieving a lovely patina over time.
A new saddle should be treated 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 proofs your saddle. Brooks Proofide is the only substance that should be used to take care of your saddle.
