Saddles come in many forms, designed for all types of riding and
all shapes of rider. At the lower end saddles foam padding is used to
provide a comfortable sitting platform, whilst at the higher end special
gel pads are positioned to relieve the pressure. However, the amount of
padding does not necessarily dictate how comfortable a saddle can be.
Differing Shape & Comfort Shape is vital and unfortunately
everyone’s posterior tends to differ in shape, so one person might find a
shape of saddle comfortable whilst another might not be able to sit on
it for five minutes. This is why some high end saddles don’t need much
padding, or in the case of some super lightweight all carbon saddles
none at all. When so much though has been put into the sitting position
and shape, combined with padded cycling shorts, some seats are still
very comfortable even after 6 hours in the saddle. Of course for the
simple potter down to the shops or leisure ride most saddles will be
good enough; it’s only if riding for a prolonged period that some
careful time and consideration needs to be taken to find the correct
fit. The wrong saddle can really detract from your riding experience. If
you don’t notice the saddle when riding then you have the correct one.
