Team Pro Titanium

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. The ladies model with titanium underpinnings is entitled Finesse.

Part of an old Brooks Tradition
04/10/2009
Written by Michael Dempster
Team Pro Titanium
Sirs: I am 60 years old and am, "Getting back on two wheels", i.e., back riding my well preserved 1977 Raleigh Professional MkV.

30 years ago, I rode with clubs and just loved the Team Pro seat - it was so comfortable (Original Equipment). In a moment of youthful foolishness, I had sold the seat with another bike (so you know, the seat was the seller) and I foolishly replaced my Brooks with a paper thin, leather/plastic seat, that was not as comfortable as the Brooks.

Career, and parenting took away my time and my beloved Raleigh was carefully stored away, until now, at 60, I have the time to resume what I loved so much. However, the existing plastic seat was, after 30 years unacceptable and after replacing it with a new (honey) Team Professional Ti, the comfort that I had enjoyed has returned (from the first use), with the added bonus of dropping those extra ounces in weight!

Artistry and craftsmanship have a universal timeless quality, when combined with superior design, the best materials and common sense...that is specifically what your products represent to me...

I have recently purchased a showroom new 1982 Rossin (lucky find) and will be soon outfitting it with (of course) a new Brooks Team Professional Ti, as comfort and quality are my criteria.

Stick with your traditions, in-house manufacturing and keep up the quality that I and many others have grown to appreciate.

Thanks Again, Gents

Dear Sirs,

A fellow countryman has made a study of the leather saddles around and has gone through the trouble of testing most of them seriously, writing sensible reviews and making his knowledge and expertise available on a non-commercial site. He allowed me a good number off test-rides and eventually I selected the Team Professional with titanium rails. About a year and 6000 kms down the road, I feel like thanking you. None of the lyrical stories or reviews are exaggerated; a Brooks saddle really makes a difference! I now make trips of up to four hours with hardly any stops and whereas with the expensive gel-type contraptions I used to have before which would be the limiting factor of a trip, I am now not even aware of my butt when I return; fresh to go again immediately so to speak! The saddle is mounted on a titanium mountain-bike which I had gradually conceived over years of dreaming. No part has lived up to my expectations as the Team Professional has. Contrary to other parts of the bike that lose their luster, wear or break-down, the saddle is gaining in admiration because it shows how it continuously tries to improve its interface with me (I has shown me that I am not built strait and symmetrical and it has adjusted itself to my flaws; a thing a modern saddle is not able to do) It is an item that gains character with age and the more it shows signs of use, the more I consider it as my loyal friend that enables all these pain-free rides. So a ‘Grand Merci’ for the craftsmen that put together these marvels!

Decided it was time to get back in the saddle after a 20 year hiatus. I have fond memories of my last bicycle, a Reynolds 531 Birmingham Raleigh with a Brooks Team Pro saddle. I especially remember how comfortable that saddle was. I could ride all day and not get sore. You can be sure my new bicycle will also have a Brooks.

having always used narrow and light racing saddles i decided after a lay off from cycling for several years to buy a brooks and not worry about the weight - to be honest i had plenty of it round my waist to worry about a few grams on my bike. i bought a team pro ti, and it is lovely to look at, and looks great on my steel road bike, however the first few rides on it didn't convince me, but i persevered (for the price i felt i should) and last weekend i finished a sportive with absolutely no butt ache - the saddle is gorgeous to sit on - yep it's half a pound heavier than my racing saddles, but i don't care, i am faster on the brooks as i'm more comfortable. the only thing that could improve it is a pink or green version - i'd buy one of those in a shot!

I have had a Team Pro Titanium for almost three years and have been very happy with it. It was comfortable right from the start and only improved with break-in. Sitting on leather just feels organic, a far more pleasant experience than sitting on plastic. Not to mention that classic look! Unfortunately I have found that the unfinished lower side edges are abrading and wearing through the inseams of my very comfortable but rather expensive cycling shorts. Since I cannot afford to replace all of my shorts every 1-2 years, I am compelled to remove my trusty Brooks saddle and revert to my old smooth plastic saddle. Do you have any suggestions for finishing the saddle edges to avoid abrasion of delicate fibers? Perhaps punch holes in the lower edges and lace them together to angle them in slightly, although I fear that might alter the shape of the seat area?
