Team Pro Chrome

Availability: In stock

Made in England

The Team Professional is a classic Brooks saddle created with the needs of the sporting cyclist in mind. This model has been in production for half a century, originating from the old B17 Competition. This saddle is a pleasingly simple design, which truly deserves the description 'timeless classic'. The title Team Professional is embossed on either side just above a precisely hand skived stripe along the side edges, where a little of the glossy leather top surface is removed to reveal the texture and lighter tone of the suede beneath. Large headed copper rivets are hammered by hand, providing the finishing touch. A ladies version is also available, designated the Team Professional S. Both ladies and gents Team Pro saddles are manufactured with traditional chromium plated steel rails, or with copper plated steel rails. Furthermore, lighter versions of this classic design are available with Titanium rails.

Part of an old Brooks Tradition

Bought this as a B77 about 40 years ago, transferred it to my 3rd road bike 30+/- years ago, Gave up bikes and it sat around the place doing nothing. Bought a Trek 1.2 last month and put it on in place of the plastic thingee provided. Done about 100kms on it and it's working in fine. About to put some proofride (which I just bought -- where can you get neat's foot oil these days? are neats now extinct?) on the bottom. Works fine and is comfortable. Still in excellent shape and rather amazing to look at today's price (can't remember what I paid for it back then -- $25?).

Rather fascinating to think of all those years rolling by while the saddle sat there, awaiting a new life.
comment> plastic thingy? hilarious!

I have used this for about 50 miles in the last 2 days after getting my Condor Fratello. The seat so far seems very comfortable. I was worried about the nightmare stories I read regarding the 'breaking in' period, but so far, no such problems (or sores!!). The Team Pro Chrome in black looks stunning by the way. I am really pleased with it and I can see me being a customer of Brooks England for some time..

Now 50 years old, I have been riding Brooks Professional saddles since my teens, on various bikes, through various phases of my cycling life. This model is, without a doubt, the best saddle I have ever ridden. After a few hundred miles of breaking in (300?), the Professional is a saddle I can happily ride all day, day after day, for literally weeks at a stretch on long tours. This model has tended to last me about 15 years before it's time for a replacement. Not the lightest road saddle on the market, but if long-term comfort is the goal, you simply cannot beat this one. The best. Full stop.

I ride Brooks Colts on my two fixies. After quite lot of breaking in, they are wonderful. I have an old pre softened team pro on my tourer and was the only rider rout of 40 not to need chamois cream during a ride from London to Paris. My new bespoke Columbus XCR framed racer has been adorned with a Swift titanium, befitting of its light weight. All bikes have matching Brooks bar tape. Love the brand and ride.

I am waiting like a kid on Christmas eve for my new Team Pro chrome to be delivered. I've seen websites that suggest soaking the new saddle in Neatsfoot oil prior to mounting on the bike, as this cuts hundreds of miles off of the break in period. I've also read that the Pro saddles are a thicker leather than other models, so that this step is particularly important. I know you don't recommend this, but could the saddle be harmed in this way?
A> this would damage the leather we would not recommend doing this

After the very first ride on my new saddle I cut my finger open on brooks logo at the back of the saddle. Lower edge is really sharp! I am using saddlebag daily when commuting, so fingers are in danger when attaching/removing the bag. If this happens again I will remove the logo which is made of sheet metal.
A> Ouch!  We have never had this particular complaint before, if you could, please send us the saddle for inspection!

Saddle is six months old, ridden for less than 3,000 miles, and one of the rails has just snapped! Very concerned as I now have Brooks saddles on all my bikes.
A> All Brooks saddles are covered under a two-year warranty against defects, so do not worry about replacement but we are very sorry to hear of your rail failure.  Please consult the warranty section of this website and we are sorry for the inconvenience this has caused!

There can be no doubt about the quality and longevity of Brooks saddles - I have just replaced a well-used 1978 Team Professional (as I was offered the buy-new price for it) with the current model, and have five steel-frame classic bikes of various ages dating back to the 1960s, all with Brooks Pro saddles. Apart from its pristine newness, the new saddle seems identical to the older ones.



My concern is the opposite to most people's, it seems - I find the saddles perfect from new, no 'breaking-in' is required and softening is certainly not desired. The only treatment mine receive is a periodic application of good quality shoe polish to the top surface.



Although I have never had a problem with the leather stretching or deforming through normal use, I would like to maintain with confidence the stiffened, firm shape. Can Brooks please suggest a treatment that will keep the leather in its original stiff and rigid condition?
 
A> Like quality leather shoes the leather will change and adapt over time with use.  Keeping the leather stiff may prove complicated
