Our finest B17 versions are also available for women and smaller riders, with special details and finishes that characterise the B17 Special Short Saddle. Like all of our leather saddles, each beautiful B17 Special emerges handmade from our Smethwick, England factory where it has been carefully finished with hand-hammered copper rivets to add life by protecting the durable vegetable tanned leather. A comfortable bike seat thanks to its unique design and hammock-like performance, the B17 Special Short flexes naturally and will mould to each rider’s specific anatomy, achieving a unique 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.
