The Right Saddle
You need to find the right bike seat. Don’t just ride the saddle that came with the bike.
- A seat that is the right width. For women that can mean a womens specific saddle which is more likely to match your pelvis width and have the shape that supports your soft tissue.
- That matches your riding position. Different bikes as well as the type of riding you do will put you in different riding positions. A saddle designed to match the type of riding you do will give support and cushioning in all the right places. This will go a long way to making sure you are comfortable when you ride.
- How long you ride for/ Where you ride. The materials used in a seat will give cushioning and comfort for different lengths of time and work best in different environments so you must match your seat to the time you spend on the bike and where you ride.
