by
Ownership: a few months

Pros

This is my second seat. I sold the bike with the first one. When I got a new bike I used the standard seat for a few weeks but always hurt. Since getting this seat riding is a joy! Very pleased with the quality too.

Cons

It takes a few trials to get it adjusted.

My friend and I both got a seat and tried them for a couple of weeks. Made several adjustments to no avail. I guess our arses are just to small to benefit from these so we,went back to what we had.

StarStarStarStarStar Easy seat for my mom's bike

by
Ownership: several months

Pros

Looked like it was easy to sit on

Cons

VERY hard to put on the bike! It didn't have the part that goes between the seat onto the bike. Had to find one, and it doesn't fit too well. I was NOT too impressed.

Other Thoughts

Could have come with some descent instructions on how to put it on

StarStarStarStarStar Try it, you'll like it!

by
Ownership: several months
Tech Knowledge: average

Pros

Easy to adjust. Compact. Gets a lot of funny looks and questions from other riders.

Cons

Takes a while to get use to. Once properly adjusted for my body type, it's very comfortable. Some of the parts are plastic and thus, not as sturdy as metal would be. I transport my bike in my pickup and anchor it with straps and one of the anchor points on the seat has broken. Since then I have chosen to fasten to the seat stem. That works for me.

Other Thoughts

I have not tried it out on a long ride (more than 10 miles).

StarStarStarStarStar Hobson Saddle bike seat

by
Ownership: a month
Tech Knowledge: high

Pros

Eliminates pressure in places that don't require pressure.

Cons

Takes several adjustments and weeks of riding to find a comfortable, natural position. Seat material is very grippy, so be careful when you want to dismount quickly as your clothes may stick to the seat.

Other Thoughts

Great concept, should have had one years ago.

StarStarStarStarStar Senior rider

by
Ownership: more than a year
Tech Knowledge: average

Pros

If riding a bike with the little skinny seat makes your bottom sore than this is the seat for you. Once I got my bike set up correct and the seat adjusted for my riding style it has been great. Our 25 mile rides are so nice now and no soreness afterward. As a senior citizen who likes to exercise I have found this seat to be wonderful.

Cons

My husband had to make numerous changes and adjustments to my bike. He made and installed an extension to the stem on my handle bars. He bought and installed risers to the ends of my handle bars. He carried a wrench with him on rides so he could adjust the seat during the rides. Once he got the adjustments right for me our long rides have been heaven

Other Thoughts

The individual seat cushions or pads whatever you call them slowly slide to the center of the seat over the course of a long ride.

StarStarStarStarStar Prostatecctomy & Easyseat

by
Ownership: one year

Pros

Had a prostatectomy. Biking on a regular saddle with horn caused too much pain in the perineum. The "Easyseat" made riding possible again!

Cons

Thrilled to be able to ride again, but notice some loss if control that had been gained with the horn between my legs.

Other Thoughts

Prostatectomy: Buy and "Easyseat". You won't regret it!

StarStarStarStarStar decent, needs redesign

by
Ownership: a few months
Tech Knowledge: high

Pros

No horn to bother the prostate

Cons

The set screws are not enough to keep the pads from moving to the side. I had to drill holes in the clamps and cross bar to make the seat stable.

Width

Men's saddles tend to have a narrower seat and longer nose than corresponding women's versions.

We categorize usage into three styles - BMX, racing and recreation. Racing saddles tend to be narrower and be more firm than recreation saddles. Recreation saddles are usually a better fit if you plan to ride upright and they may include features like springs.

Women's saddles tend to have a wider seat and shorter nose than corresponding men's versions.

Saddle color is usually the predominant color of the saddle. But, for predominantly black or white saddles it is usually the color of accents or highlights.
