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

Comfort

Cons

I am a little concerned about how it will hold up if I get caught in a long ride in rain. Other than that no cons yet.

Other Thoughts

Only used a month and about 300 miles, but so far I am happy with the B17 Imperial. So far my rides haven't exceeded 60 miles. Break in period hasn't really been an issue for me. It's a bit less firm now than when new but I found it good out of the box.

For me the width and shape seems to work. Also it's firm yet has some give at pressure points. Since I haven't tried this same saddle without the cutout area so I can't say how much that feature helps, but I can't see a down side to the cutout either.

My experience has been you can't really tell how a saddle will work for you until you use it a while. Past saddles that I've tried but didn't work for me include Brooks Cambium C15, Trek, and SMP.

Hopefully I am this satisfied a year from now.

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.
