Once they are adjusted, the seats still move slightly so I find myself constantly adjusting my position on the seat while riding.
J. Brady
The seat is hard and not very comfortable, and you will still get soreness after a long bike ride, defeating the purpose of getting a special bike seat.
Jeff Albertson
The theory behind this seat is sound: no horn pressing on your delicate parts, so no undesired numbing or pressure on those areas.

I have used this seat for three years for a 30 minute round trip commute. If you expect this to feel like a conventional seat, you won't like it. It does require that you keep you hands on the bars, since you cannot as easily balance and steer the bike from your crotch, since there is no extension of the seat between your legs. But that's the whole point, you sit on your sit bones, not your perineum. The rocker action of the independent seat pads, noted by some reviewers, is a normal and necessary feature, which keeps the seat from putting excessive pressure on the back of your thighs. The seat is very strong and mine shows no wear despite high miles. The plastic parts do not break, as suggested by one reviewer who obviously hasn't actually used the seat for any length of time. The seat requires a brief break in, and then becomes very comfortable. it is important to position the saddle for-and-aft so that your sit bones rest in the cup-shaped depressions in the saddle. For mountain biking, it has the significant advantage that you can remain in the saddle for uphill traction or downhill braking effectiveness without having your perineum hammered on the bumps. This is a real advantage for hard tail bikes, and since most people don't ride hands-off on trails anyway, the requirement to keep hands on the bars isn't a problem. Overall a great product.

I had tried several "comfort" seats, some with splits, some with gel and I was still experiencing severe discomfort. The problem was bad enough that I went to my doctor. I was ready to quit riding when I ordered the Easy Seat. I have to admit that it took about 25 miles until I was completely comfortable. I now have well over a thousand miles on it and I couldn't be happier. I no longer experience any discomfort. I quickly adjusted to riding with no hands with the Easy Seat. The seat has held up very well.

I have been riding for decades. Road and mountain biking. I have always been in the forefront of trying new seats because I never thought that folks needed to feel numb after a bike ride. So I upgraded every few years, looking for a more comfortable ride, but never trying out these unusual seat designs. Last fall, I decided to give them a try. I put one of these Hobson Easyseat Dual-Seat-Pad Bike Saddles on my indoor trainer and gave it a run for the winter. I loved it. This is the direction that bicycle seats should be going. I never felt a seat so comfortable; no butt pain at the end of an hour-long workout. Come spring in New England, however, it was time to give it a road test. That is where it failed. It rubbed me raw in the back of my thighs, right where the front edge of the seat met my legs. Part of the problem, I think, is that I was wearing bike shorts, and the padding that works so well on old-fashioned seats didn't work so well on the Hobson. After healing for a week, I tried several different rides looking for a comfort zone. Never found it. So ... I decided to gamble on another seat, the Spiderflex. This seat is similar to the Hobson, but by no means identical. It felt good from the first ride, though I made several adjustments to the seat before I hit my comfort zone. To give you an idea of how good it feels, today I completed a 25 mile ride on my mountain bike, with my heart rate averaging 133 for 1:40. At the end of the ride, I was tired, as you might imagine, but none of the soreness in my ham muscles that I have been used to for so many years. I no longer have a ham muscle recovery period of a day or so before I feel like riding again. The Hobson is around $25 USD; the Spiderflex is around $100 USD.Read more ›

I ordered the Easy Seat and used it for several days. If one is only interested in easing pressure on the nerves and arteries of the perineum, then one can be reasonably satisfied, for the product certainly accomplishes this.

Early on however, it became apparent that if one removes one's hands from the handlebars, especially while peddling, it is nearly impossible to balance the bike. Apparently, one needs to apply subtle pressure through the inner thighs to the horn of the saddle in order to maintain balance. Of course, the Easy Seat has no horn. In addition, no matter how tightly I fastened the thumb screws to separate the pads, they would invariably come together. I am convenced that the osillating motion of the pads as one peddles and the friction this generates requires more effort from the rider to propel the bike.

I have retired the Easy Seat and replaced it with a split saddle which seems to solve the perineal pressure problem. What looked good on paper proved a disappointment in practice.

The people who don't like this seat probably didn't adjust it properly.

I'm 56 and ride a mountain bike on paved trails intermittently for 25 mile bursts of exercise and have done so for years. I always have pain due to pressure points and to friction on my thighs. UNTIL NOW!

I just got an original Easyseat and spent some time adjusting it to remove the pressures noted by some other riders. I now like it tilted quite a bit forward and high, which leaves my legs extended properly on the full downstroke and places my body "balanced" on the seat rather than "sitting" upright.

The seat is unusual in that it feels as if I am not anchored very firmly. But this was easy to get used to because I am not a (favorite perjoritive term) who rejects good ideas just because they are weird.

I then rode 30 miles and totally exhausted my legs, which hadn't ridden a bike in 4 months. (I moved states, sold my old bike and have been running instead.)

I had NO PAIN and NO AFTEREffects! It felt as if I had not even been on a bike ride. I returned after 2 1/2 hours riding in 85 deg. morning sun in Spokane and immediately went on an hour long power-walk with my wife.

I expect that different people will prefer different versions of the Easyseat. Version 2 supposedly favors a more upright posture. The even newer "horned" split seat by Hobson probably gives the best of both worlds, although I prefer no rubbing on the thighs and don't want to wear bike shorts.

I recommend the original, but riders should expect to try out many adjustments and to "get used to it".
