Brookes Saddles


Recommended Posts

I have always wanted to get a brookes leather saddle. I want it for my X country steed and not sure what model to look at.

I think the B-17 was the flavor of the month a while ago but not sure what development there have been. Does anyone have any info or experience to share with me to help my decision?

I have a B17 on my SS. Wish all my saddles were this comfy... Looks a bit odd on my road bike.

B17, Swift or swallow. Which is more xc orientated?



Have you looked over at this thread?


I have the B17 Special on my SS, and a black Swift on my slightly-racier softail... Each to their own on what looks better - most think Brooks saddles look ugly regardless :) - but reckon the Swift leans itself to being more XC than the B17...


Brooks themselves classify the B17 as being their "touring/trekking" option, with the Swift being designated as a "Road/Mtb" saddle - which clearly has it as being the racier version, and thereby presumably, the more XC-orientated version.
