This is my second Brooks saddle. I have a black one on my road bike. People think that a bike seat should be soft and comfortable. Unfortunately, nothing could be farther from the truth. My husband taught me that the reason a seat works is that it allows all the pressure to be on your sit bones and not soft tissue. Having leather that over time conforms to your unique physique is so necessary. If you have a soft, cushiony seat, you are, over the duration of the ride, putting more and more pressure on your soft tissue which causes the pain and numbness. The Brooks Imperial B17 Saddle for women allows you to 'sit' where physically you should be - on your sit bones. After a break-in period, you will never look back. I've had my other Brooks saddle for over 4 years - it is phenomenally comfortable, even after riding 100 miles at a stretch. Give this seat a try - you won't regret it.
