The B17 is a classic Brooks saddle created with the needs of the general purpose cyclist in mind. This model has been in production for over a century, featured in catalogues as early as 1898. This saddle is a pleasingly simple design, which truly deserves the description 'timeless classic'.
The B17 Special is the same size and shape as a standard B17, but with some delicate aesthetic additions. Copper plating replaces black enamel on the steel frame rails. Large, hand-set, copper rivets replace the machine-set steel rivets, and the edge of the saddle skirt is chamfered as a finishing touch.
Further, this saddle is a B17 'S' - Intended as an option for shorter or female riders. This saddle is 7mm wider and 35mm shorter than the standard B17.
