Product Description

A lycra-covered soft gel seat for ultimate, cushioned comfort.The SEAT takes the pressure off soft tissues and tender organs and lets you sit where you are supposed to sit - on your "sit bones". The SEAT's innovative, ergonomic design eliminates the protruding horn or nose found on conventional bicycle seats, providing a significantly more comfortable and healthy ride. For many people, buying a new bike also means shopping for a more comfortable seat. Traditional bike saddles cut off circulation, leading to discomfort and, in some cases, sexual dysfunction. Dimensions: 9 x 6 x 3.5 inches (23 x 15 x 9cm). Fits any standard, conventional rail-mount bicycle [Note: "stationary" exercise bikes, must have conventional rail-mounts for proper installation] . 3-M Scotchlite rear reflectors are standard for added safety. Lightweight, 14 oz. design (0.4 kg) . Easy installation and adjustment "Sit-bone" based support. Healthy, comfortable ride.

The Seat Ultimate Bicycle Saddle offers an innovative design that removes pressure from the groin and soft tissues and moves your weight back to your sits bones for an improved riding position. The Seat's ergonomic design eliminates the protruding horn or nose found on conventional bicycle seats, providing a significantly more comfortable and healthy ride. Anyone who has ridden on a traditional bike seat has most likely experienced a combination of numbness, bone pain, and tenderness during and/or after riding. By removing the horn, the Seat ensures that circulation will not be interrupted during your ride, and also reduces pain-causing pressure points. The Seat Ultimate model offers even greater comfort with a lycra-covered soft shell seat for more cushioning.



The Seat's hornless design takes pressure off of soft tissues and eliminates nerve compression.

Having had prior experience with nerve injury and having some familiarity with anatomy I do take the danger of cycling inflicted nerve and vascular injury seriously. Often such damage is just compression nerve injury which reverses itself in a matter of days or weeks, but there is also the real possibility of more serious damage to the nerves or local artherosclerosis which does not normally heal by itself. Possible symptoms are tingling, loss of sensation, erectile dysfunction and even urinary continence problems. The risk is probably more serious for men than for women. There is also very little that medicine can do for you in these cases.

Studies show that some of the ergonomic saddles on the market with cut-outs of various designs cases can in some cases actually make the risk of injury greater, but concentrating pressure on a smaller area than conventional saddles. Only noseless saddles like this one can really eliminate the danger by entirely tranferring the weight from the perineum to the buttocks.

I ride regularly and intensively (80-90 minutes a day) in crazy Manhattan. Here are my observations.

1. This saddle is not only safer than conventional saddles, but also more comfortable. I had not realized that my previous saddle was causing me discomfort until I started using this one and found that it was a more pleasant experience.

2. It takes a few weeks to get used to this saddle. At the beginning it felt like somebody kept trying to push me off the bike. After a while it feels perfectly natural.

3. There is a reason that most saddles have a nose. Correcting the alignment of your bike by pushing on the nose from the side with your thighs has a more important role in controlling a bike than most people realize.

Hard to believe, but females have parts that are sensitive to bike seat horns too.... So I bought this seat and I love it! No more pressure, no more UTI's. It took me all of 30 seconds to get used to it and I'm having no problems with balance. The only tiny, tiny drawback that I can see is that every so often I have to scootch myself backwards on the seat because I've slid forward a bit. But I was doing that on my old seat even more frequently to try to relieve the pressure from the horn. All in all, a great choice if you want to do without the horn.

Recently I started cycling to get some exercise. However, three weeks into my program saw me rushing to the doctor because of "trauma" to my groin area because of the traditional saddle. My doctor advised me to change the saddle and use padded cycle shorts. I read the reviews on "The Seat" and decided to give it a try. This was definately one of my better buying decisions.

After installing on my bike and taking a ride around the block, the comfort I felt was amazing. It was like moving from an old jalopy to a spanking new Mercedes. No pain; no pain medication needed.

That being said, it took me about 30 minutes to get adjusted to the new feel. It was a bit harder to balance and a little tricky when removing a hand from the handle.

Now that I've taken a few rides around the community, I'm definately sold; there's no going back to an ordinary saddle. The build quality of "THE SEAT' is exceptional as well and does a good job of cushioning the ill effects of bad road surfaces. Forget padded cycle shorts; any normal shorts will do!

I am a regular mountain biker (hard-tail, shoe clips, rides on roads and soft trails). For an entire year, I was dealing with terrible pelvic pains, which I had assumed were caused by my "regular" bike seat. So I bought Ergo the Seat, hoping that this would solve the problem. Long story short: my pains turned out to have nothing at all to do with my bike. (The leg press machine at my gym was the major culprit).

Having bought The Seat, I decided to use it anyway, as a preventative measure. It is well constructed, and it certainly takes weight off of your groin area. Earlier, I had tried the Hobson Easyseat, which was exceedingly uncomfortable -- it felt as if I was leaning against a kitchen counter! The Ergo is definitely more comfortable than the Hobson.

Unfortunately, as other reviewers have discussed in depth, you will sustain a huge performance hit with seats such as this. The redistribution of weight will go to your arms, as well as your legs. I suppose the good news is that one can eventually adapt to it, to a point. After a few rides, my arms were definitely becoming used to the added stress. However, the extra strain on the legs will mean that cycling becomes noticeably more strenuous. It is almost equivalent to riding while standing up, except that you don't benefit by using your body weight during peddling, as one would while going up hill. The new strain on my legs and knees was very noticeable with the Ergo.

I eventually reinstalled my old seat, and it felt as if cycling was twice as easy.

For some people's physical issues, Ergo The Seat may mean the difference between cycling and not cycling. In my case, it turned out to not be beneficial for me. That being said, I cannot knock it as a product, because it does exactly what it claims to do. I recommend to be sure that it is going to be a solution for you, before investing in one.
