Naturally Timeless.
Made By Hand. Shaped By You.

Like all of our leather saddles, each beautiful B17 Special is handmade in our Smethwick, England factory with hand-hammered copper rivets to protect the durable, vegetable tanned leather.

Only the finest premium vegetable tanned leather for strength, beauty and durability.

Our workshops have been crafting Brooks iconic leather saddles for more than 150 years.

Leather is a naturally breathable material that provides a unique type of well-being. The leather top is suspended over the saddle rail to create a suspended moulded seat, similar to a hammock, for tailored lasting comfort.

Journey after journey, our leather naturally moulds to the unique shape of the rider for a more comfortable ride.

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.
