Over 100 years of production should be testimony itself to the versatility and dependability of the B17. This saddle is available to both men (B17) and women (B17 S) and comes in several specialty models that feature copper plated steel metal work, narrow specs, and aged leather.

-Takes a while for the leather to “break in”
