The Brooks B17 Special with Copper Rails presents a finely enhanced model of the 100 year old classic.
The B17 is noted for its followers in the long distance touring, randonneuring, and commuting communities. Because of the wider perch to position your sit bones and the fact that the leather will gradually form a bit to your posterior, this model is widely touted as saddle nirvana. The hand hammered copper rivets and copper rails really set this saddle apart and raise your cycling hipster quotient by at least 2 points.
Be advised: Leather saddles are not totally weatherproof. They are subject to issues if left in the pouring rain. It’s best to appropriately apply some Brooks Proofide and have a saddle cover handy when riding in the rain.
