Saddles

Brooks-005

If there’s one thing of utmost importance on your bicycle, it’s having a comfortable seat to ride on.

Here at Bicycle Belle we carry three main brands of saddle: Brooks, Velo Orange, and Selle Royal.

The Brooks saddle is the quintessential premium, handmade leather saddle. Brooks saddles are a time-honored tradition. The company was founded in 1882 and is now known and respected for its beautiful leather handcrafted saddles, as well as cycling bags, baskets and other accessories. Leather saddles wear in like a good pair of leather shoes. It takes a couple weeks to break them in, but once broken they mold to your particular shape. Many riders find them much more comfortable than synthetic saddles.

We carry some of the most popular Brooks saddle styles:  B67,  B17, and the Flyer. We carry them in Honey (pictured above), Brown, and Black. We are also able to special order any of their styles, so don’t fret if you’ve got your heart set on one we don’t regularly carry.

Velo Orange is our alternate leather saddle. Velo Orange saddles are made of the finest quality Australian cowhide and require the same break in period as other leather saddles. Velo Orange specializes in a variety of bicycle accessories, and we carry a number of their other products. In addition to their saddles, we have a selection of products including (but not limited to) handlebars, front and back racks, chain guards, grips, and grip tape.

If you’re looking for a saddle that’s cushiony and comfortable from day one, we carry Selle Royal. This company offers supreme comfort in gel saddles. Selle Royal makes saddles for all different riding types and postures. We tend to carry their saddles made for a more relaxed, upright posture, since that’s the type of bike we ride. If we don’t have the style you’re looking for, we can special order it as well.
