Leave it up to Brooks to improve on a classic. The B17 Imperial features a design that dates back to 1890, with a pressure reducing cutout that ensures your comfort in the miles to come. And, of course, the B17 Imperial features Brooks' full-grain, premium leather, and trademark rivets for the ultimate in comfort, 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.
