Brooks B17 Imperial Saddle Black
The B17 Imperial features the central cut-out, first designed by BROOKS over 100 years ago. The "registered cutting", as can be read in the 1890 catalogue, is "a sure preventive to all perineal pressure".

Believe the hype. Drink the kool-aid. Buy a Brooks. After only a few miles I am sold on the excellence of this product. While my rides are long and slow, I would still want this saddle for neighborhood riding. The hard leather just works: less friction and I don't get the break-in thing. Mine is already comfortable. To think that it will be even better after a few thousand miles makes me want to, well, go ride.

Pros

Most recommended saddle for touring. Over a century old design and old world construction. Forms to your butt. Hand built by actual craftsmen.

Cons

None that I can find.

Other Thoughts

I have been through about a half dozen saddles from WTB, Specialized, etc. but could never get comfortable on long rides and multiple days in the saddle. I finally took the veteran touring cyclists advice and bought the Brooks. My advice to anyone considering long days and many miles in the saddle is just buy the Brooks. They ain't cheap but my mom once told me that it's always best to spend the money to get the best. Buy once, cry once.

StarStarStarStarStar A great saddle to perch on while putting on the miles.

Awesome design and quality. I replaced a B17 Narrow saddle with this wider saddle. I found out my sit bones measurement was too wide for the narrow saddle? 31mm plus 2cm put my SBs at the edge of the B17 Narrow. Ya learn as you go. My bones appreciate this wider saddle, even now, during the break-in period. Years ago, I bought a used bike that came with an Ideal leather saddle. This was my first pleasurable experience with a hard leather saddle.
