BROOKS B17 These were the standard saddle of choice on medium to high end British bikes for more than sixty years. They came in two widths Standard and Narrow. And were very popular amongst Pro riders on the continent until the late 1970s…
Brooks changed the badge design on the B17 saddles in around 1954 from an oval design to a trapezum shape. There are a few exceptions – mostly more recent Books saddles that have been recreations. The B27 and B37 models were introduced by Brooks about 1948 with an aluminium cantleplate and stainless steel rails and were only available for about five years.

BROOKS B17 SWALLOW and SWIFT
Introduced in late 1935 this design was continued through to the late 1960s. Despite looking extra narrow it is the same width as a B17N. Brooks revived the Swallow design first in the 1980s with several recreations… The Swift is a development of the Swallow shape available with both chrome steel and titanium rails.
