    Women's/Men's models

    The following Brooks models are commonly considered "women's" models:

    This distinction is not as clear-cut as might be supposed. It is generally understood that women, on average, require a somewhat wider saddle than the average man. There is a basic biological reason for this: women, on average, have wider hips than men, so their ischial tuberosities (sit bones) are farther apart.

    It is also customary for women's saddles to be shorter than those marketed to men. I'm not convinced that there's any biological reason for this; rather, I believe that the custom of making women's saddles shorter is for the sake of accommodating a skirt more easily. Women who don't plan to ride in a skirt should not rule out "men's" saddles, particularly the wider models.

    Should you buy a saddle with springs?
