Globally renowned and truly timeless, the B17 S Standard is the saddle that secured Brooks' place in cycling history. It's been in constant production since 1910, providing cyclists around the world with over one hundred years of sublime support and unrivaled comfort. Each B17 S Standard shapes itself to its rider, leading to a personal, customized saddle that fits like no other. The S models are shorter and wider than a normal B17 and are uniquely suited to women riders. And of course, it features Brooks' full grain, premium leather top secured by their trademark rivets for the ultimate in style and durability.
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.

I upgraded the standard saddle that came with my 2013 Kona Sutra and haven't regretted the decision. Sure, it cost more than the first bike I bought myself (a Canadian Tire special from a thousand years ago)...but my butt and comfort is worth it. Sure, it looks like it won't be comfortable...but it is incredibly comfortable. I basically broke the saddle in by taking it for a couple of short rides around the city (~100 km), then out on a seven day unsupported solo tour (~675 km over mountain passes). It's a thing of beauty to stand up on your pedals or to dismount from the bike and not feel the excruciating pain of what I call "butt decompression." You know - that moment when blood flow returns to the nether regions that leaves you groaning in pain and walking bow-legged. How much do I love this saddle? I'm buying a nice, light road bike...and putting another one of these saddles on it. My butt is worth it. And so is yours. There's a reason this company has been around for more than a century, people. They build these things right.
