Bicycle Seat Guide
The ideal saddle provides adequate shock absorption without excess padding. Softer saddles tend to work well for shorter trips and bicycles which position the rider more upright. They may have a gel cushion on each side of the seat. A cyclist in a more leaning position can use a firmer saddle, as the weight is more evenly distributed between the seat and the bars. Firmer saddles may have a narrow cutaway shape so as not to impede efficient pedaling. They sometimes feature a groove down the center for increased comfort. Saddle covers may be made of leather (an older style), synthetic materials, foam, or gel.
