Made in England

The Team Professional Classic is simpler and newer version of the Team Professional, featuring tubular steel rivets instead of the large hand-hammered copper rivets.

This saddle is a pleasingly simple design, which truly deserves the description 'timeless classic'.

Part of an old Brooks Tradition

Team Pro Classic
I received my new Brooks Professional saddle recently. Back in my youth (mid 60s), my first "good" bike came with a leather saddle. Comfortable, rode in cutoff jean shorts with no problems. About 12 years ago I returned to cycling. And, with most, was caught up with bicycle weight, so no leather saddle. Instead, I went through a succession of high tech, low weight, etc. saddles. Recently, my 4 yr old reputable Italian manufactured saddle was increasingly uncomfortable. I e-mailed the maker, and the reply said that, essentially, their saddles are good for about 10,000 km, and then the foam breaks down. So I ordered a Brooks. Comfortable right out of the box (first ride with it was 42 miles), and getting better each consecutive ride. And, it will probably last forever. Now, after my experience, one of my riding partners is gearing up to order himself a B17 (he's a bit larger and wider than me, 6'-2", 200 lbs vs my 5'-8", 150 lbs). And yes, while my Brooks weighs 500 grams vs 200 grams, with the additional comfort, I can ride longer and am sure I will drop more than that weight from myself in no time. I should probably be in the 135 - 140 lb range. So, keep up the good work, I'll keep promoting your saddles. You may want to talk with the boys in the pro peloton. With the drop in bicycle weights, where they actually are adding weight to their bicycles to meet the UCI minimums, some smart professionals may want a more comfortable, i.e. Brooks, saddle. After all, your products were good enough for Eddy Merckx, and he wasn't a bad cyclist!

I found my first Brooks saddle on a bike in the trash in front of someone's house. I about piddled when I saw rising out of this heap of old bike was a beautiful Brooks saddle. My wife thought I was nuts. I did not have the appropriate wrench to pull the seat off but I did have a pair of bolt cutters and a hammer, so I cut the seat post off and threw the bike back in the trash and dragged the seat home, cleaned it up and put it on my first race bike a Davidson Steel frame Impulse. Ever since then I have had Brooks saddles on my bikes. I just bought the Cannondale Six Carbon 3 and promptly removed the Prologo saddle and replaced it with the Team Pro Classic. I just found another white one that I am trying to buy that will look amazing on my bike.

I am a bike messenger in Florida and have been riding on this saddle for some time now. I must say I love your products, they are second to none. I look forward to adding more of you saddles to my collection.



Cheers,

All I can say is wow. I Rode a Brooks Team Pro on my aluminium hardtail 29er mountain bike in the 24-mile "Wicked Ride" in Harold Parker State Forest in Andover, Massachusetts. It is one of the roughest, most technical areas to ride in the Northeastern United States. All of the roots and rocks and ruts really took their toll on everything, including the fork [snapped a coil], the rear brake [the internals were rattled to bits], the frame [a 6-inch-long crack appeared in the chainstay], the big chainring, and my body... and even though I had no chamois, my butt wasn't sore, thanks to the fact that I put a Brooks England Professional saddle on the bike.

I know they seem somewhat out-of-place on an aluminum mountain bike, but I really think they are great. Seriously: thick leather and a beefy frame really smooths out the ride, and the long nose is nice for climbing and just changing up positions. The fact that it is slightly slick and somewhat narrow means it didn't get caught on my pants when I was throwing the bike around underneath me.

My first racing bike came with a second-hand Brooks Competition, which was amazingly comfortable. When that bike was stolen, I was persuaded (it was the 1980s) to replace the Brooks with a Concor Supercorsa, a wonderful-looking saddle but, as it turned out, an instrument of torture. Thieves quickly did their bit again, however, and this time I took no chances, buying a B17 Narrow. This was a great saddle, but somehow never quite as vanishingly comfortable as the Brooks Competition had been. Fast forward twenty years and my purchase of a Brooks Team Pro classic - the effective successor of the Competition - taught me why: the extra centimetre of width for me made the difference. So if your sit-bones are averagely far apart and you are a sportive cyclist, try the Team Pro. I have a Narrow on my second bike, and while I certainly find both saddles comfortable, the Team Pro is amazingly so. By the way, I have never had difficulty 'breaking in' a Brooks from new, and I've done three now: two Narrows and a Team Pro. They've always been comfortable from the start. Thanks for such brilliant products.

Everyone should know the Team Pro Classic sits a lot more forward and higher than the previous seat that came with my 2012 Raleigh. The Brooks makes my new Raleigh fit too small now even with a seatpost with 30mm setback! VERY unhappy about this and wish this info was on this site instead of finding it somewhere else after the fact. Is it true that Brooks designs it's saddles for the less steep seat tubes of the older bikes which can make a modern bike with steeper seat tubes sit too far forward past the pedals?

First thing I've noticed about my Team Pro saddle was that a few steel rivets on the top feel sharp to the touch. What would be the best way to smoothen them without damaging the leather around? So far I tried to carefully apply sandpaper without any luck. I cannot say they are extremely sharp, but after first 20 miles I've already noticed some minor damage done to clothes.

This is my first Brooks saddle. Thank you.
A> Please do not use sandpaper, this will make them sharper!  Use a hammer and support the underside with a small piece of metal, directly under the rivet.  Otherwise you may return the saddle for repair or replacement.

Q: Why no bag loops? I would like to try a 160mm wide saddle for touring, but you don't offer one with bag loops. I have a B17, and it is too wide for me.
 
A: The Team Professional was designed without bag loops.  Have you tried the B17 Narrow?

I recently purchased a white Team Pro Classic and when I went to register the saddle on your website, it said I need a "production lot" in number/letter/number fashion. Brooks says this identification number can be found on the underside of the saddle. The only number pressed into the underside of my saddle is 0166 (no letter at all). Any insight as to why would be greatly appreciated!



Cheers!
 
>> The lot number is always written in white, hence you may not be able to see it.  Please put the 0166 in this case.
