Brooks B17 S saddle Imperial (equipment)

Customer Review

A few years ago I bought a cheap bike not too: cross-country, athletic, with a correspondingly narrow standard saddle. After I had gone a few dozen kilometers it (body weight significantly higher than 100kg at 1,90m height) I presented the new bike very quickly in the basement and no longer took it out - because I felt so after each trip, as you have me back ... well! Of course, I would have that time just to assemble a different saddle, but the disappointment was somehow so great that I did not even think it.

Well, a few weeks ago I decided to reactivate my bicycle - so all rigged, and then held for a saddle out which largely preserve the sporting section at the same time a little wider and be more convenient should to me (still well above to 100 kg) or less comfortable to carry from A to B.

The Brooks Saddle B17 Imperial is a really good, quality crafted saddle which can be mounted on any standard mount. The saddle leather has a proper thickness and is cut out in the middle of the saddle for the purpose of reducing pressure on certain delicate body parts accordingly. The side drawn down leather is perforated and can be laced with amounts already recovered or black Additional accompanying cords in bright colors all the way to measure how a shoe. This is very useful because the natural material leather stretches with time. Longitudinally a kind of "power car" makes below the saddle tip for the possibility of re-tensioning - the appropriate open-end wrench is the saddle, so that you "follow suit" may. The countersunk rivet heads at the rear edge of the saddle can not be felt during use. Two tabs on the bottom to attach a traditional small tool bag.

The saddle makes with its width of 17cm very good on my sport bike and provides a good compromise between a pure racing and a Tourenradsattel. I can it now anyway go far more comfortable and look forward again on every bike ride. The only drawback: this saddle you should secure when parking the bike in any case again separately! ;-)
