The B17 saddle, made for the touring cycling, has been Brooks best selling model for over a century. The saddle was first introduced in the 1890s, the B17 has survived virtually unchanged, and has firmly established itself as the saddle of choice for long distance cyclists.
The influence of the B17 is seen across much of the Brooks range. The Flyer is derived from the same top as the B17. However the flyer marginally heavier because it is complimented with a sprung frame to absorb the bumps along the road.
