Right after the reintroduction of the B72, the iconic British bicycle saddle manufacturer Brooks England is now celebrating the reintroduction of their iconic B68 saddle. For the B68 reintroduction, Brooks is also celebrating their 30-year-long relationship with Rivendell Bicycles Works.
The Brooks B68 shares the cover with another iconic saddle in the Brooks England line, the B66. The B68 is the wider of the two saddles and is perfect for more upright, city/all-rounder bikes.
This saddle, like the B17, is the quintessential Brooks Saddles design with its smoothed leather, and rear bag loops, the B68 is a timeless classic. It is the lightest leather saddle with a super clean design that makes a perfect upgrade for the modern city, casual tourer, and heavy-duty bike builds.
The B68, like most other leather saddle offerings from Brooks, is made with a vegetable-tanned leather top. It also comes with black powder-coated steel frame and rails, and tubular steel rivets.
Durable vegetable-tanned leather
Brooks uses premium tanned leather for strength, beauty, and durability.
Extended 10-year guarantee
The Brooks extended 10-year guarantee on their leather saddles is founded on the quality and consistency of materials and craftsmanship.
Handcrafted since 1866
Brooks has been making their iconic leather saddles for over 150 years. That’s a long time.
Lasting comfort and breathability
Leather is naturally breathable and provides a unique type of well-being. The Brooks leather top is suspended over the saddle rails to create a suspended molded seat, similar to a hammock that provides comfort and fits your specific anatomy.
Shapes over time
After a time, the Brooks leather saddle will mold to your unique body shape, providing years and years of consistent comfort.
