For their latest limited edition saddle release, Brooks England teamed up with American artist Jeremy Collins to create a unique B17 Special with graphics inspired by his bikepacking trip through the Italian Dolomites last summer. The Brooks B17 Special Jeremy Collins is laser-etched with artwork that Jeremy first hand-carved into a B17 at the Bicycle Adventure Meeting in Mantova, Italy, following his trip.
We’ve long admired Jeremy’s work and highly suggest checking out some of his intricate hand drawings over on Instagram. His pen-and-ink creations are fascinating, and the designs found on his artist series B17 are no exception. The saddle is made of vegetable-tanned leather at the Brooks factory in England and features lovely hand-hammered copper rivets and copper-plated steel rails. Numbers are extremely limited, and the saddle’s hefty $320 price tag reflects this. As with all Brooks leather saddles, it comes with an extended 10-year guarantee.
While they last, you can purchase a B17 Special Jeremy Collins over at BrooksEngland.com.
