Brooks B17 Select
Whether you're on a trip across the street or across the globe, it should be aboard a Brooks B17 Select. With a shape that has remained unchanged for more than a century, the B17 Select continues to offer sublime support and comfort for casual and high-mileage cyclists alike, as well as a truly classic look. The top is made of Brooks' Select organic leather, secured by their trademark, hand-hammered copper rivets.
Brooks chooses the toughest leather for their Select saddles. It's sourced from cattle raised on certified organic farms, then vegetable tanned and attached to the saddle frame with hand-hammered copper rivets that protect the leather and look beautiful. The result is the best possible quality, durability and usurpassed comfort mile after mile.
Of all the components in a quality saddle, none is more important than the leather, and Brooks carefully examines every single piece of leather ensuring that it's the absolute highest quality. For example, while it's important that all stretch is eliminated, the flexibility of the leather must remain intact so that it can conform to the contours of your body and keep its shape for years to come.
Plus, thanks to the built-in pores in its fine leather, Brooks saddles have natural ventilation so they never become clammy and remain comfortable on even the longest rides on the warmest days. Even better, plenty of Brooks customers have used the same Brooks saddle for 30 or more years, a testament to Brooks' craftsmanship and the fine materials in their saddles.
