The Brooks B17 S Standard Ladies Saddle is ideal for vintage road bikes and single speeds. First of all because of its simple, timeless design and on the other hand because of its high seating comfort. Material: Smooth genuine leather with black steel frame, dimensions: 242 x 176 x 58mm, weight: 460g - slightly shorter and wider, less high and lighter than the B17 for men.
Maintenance: In order to keep the saddle looking good for a long time, the saddle should be re-tensioned from time to time with the supplied tension wrench, as well as cared for with a good leather grease, e. g. Brooks Proofide Leather Dressing.
A short review:
Unfortunately there is very little choice for women when it comes to beautiful saddles. Men's saddles are generally perceived by women as hard and uncomfortable. Modern ladies saddles, on the other hand, often lack aesthetics: they usually have thick gel cushions, openings in the perineum area and bent noses, which are more reminiscent of a crashed Concorde than a beautiful saddle - and these just won't look good on a classic steel racer. In terms of design alone, the B17 S is the most suitable and beautiful saddle in this price segment for women riding vintage racing bikes and single speeds. And it is also unbeatable in terms of comfort.
