The B17 is Brooks’ flagship model, ideal for long distance sports touring, trekking, and mountain bike use. It has been on the market for over 100 years, being featured in as early as the 1898 Brooks catalogue. The B17 Imperial model features a leather cover, chrome-plated steel rivets, and steel rails. After time in the saddle, the leather conforms to your body shape – like leather boots fit your feet – making for a one of a kind, personalized fit.
The B17 Imperial highlights a 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”.
