Product Description

The Original Easyseat has adjustable (width) pads that move independently while pedaling for superior comfort. Since 1982 - over 800 thousand sold and counting. Although this is our oldest model, the medical benefits it provides you, the rider, is just the same as any one of our higher end products. Simply put, this seat will eliminate all pressure and cycling related pains by placing the riders weight only on his/her sit bones. This is a true unisex bike seat. NOTE: The best position for the seat is sitting upright with handle bars positioned High. Some Bikes may require a 7/8″ diameter seat clamp for installation (available off our website). This seat has been stress tested up to 450 lbs.

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.

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".

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 theory behind this seat is sound: no horn pressing on your delicate parts, so no undesired numbing or pressure on those areas. The pleasant absence of this is noticeable immediately upon mounting this seat. However, the design of the seat is so bizarre that I kept asking myself, "WTF?".

The major problem is that the seat is too long. Whereas a regular seat has a middle part that sticks out forward, this seat has side parts that stick out forward. The wide part of the Hobson seat sticks out far longer than the wide portion of any regular seat, so now you have a completely different problem created. The result is that the front of the seat digs into the back of the thighs (when the seat is raised to achieve correct bicycling geometry, so as to get a full down stroke when pedaling, ie, the leg is almost straight).

The only way for me to avoid the seat-in-thigh problem was to angle the seat down so steeply that I was no longer sitting on the seat, but rather *leaning* on the seat. This created the problem of no longer having something to be able to sit on.

A person at Hobson suggested that I try sitting on the front, rather than the back of the seat. This created an improper geometry for riding and felt as if one were at a bar while sitting at the very edge of a bar stool. It felt wrong.

An additional problem is the wobbling that is designed into the seat. Every time I braked, the seat tilted downward and I would slip off the seat. And when you pedal, you feel as if you're wobbling atop your bike. WTF! Your seat is your foundation. You don't want it to be rocking around beneath you unpredictably! Trying to ride with this seat felt like being in a comedy of the absurd.
