Dual Action Bicycle Seat Makes Riding More Comfortable
Bicycle seats should be comfortable. And bike riding should be fun. But for many people, it’s not. The weight of your body and the fixed design of most bicycle seats can result in compressed nerves and blood vessels in your lower body and chafing on your inner thighs. When your seat doesn’t fit right or isn’t comfortable even for short rides, this compression can result in nerve damage, numbness, and saddle sores. The resulting discomfort and pain often causes riders to start fidgeting in the saddle to find a more comfortable position. If the pain is becomes chronic, they eventually stop riding.
The problem isn’t limited to riders of a certain age or experience. Even professional cyclists have been forced to withdraw from major events because of sores or pain. The discomfort most often affects your ‘sit-bones’ and your perineum. Men and women are both affected, although men also have their own unique problems.
But bike riding need not be painful any longer. Start enjoying your bike riding again with a unique and comfortable bike seat that’s been designed to mimic your own anatomy.
Unique Two-Axis Design Provides Riding Comfort
The Dual Action Seat is only bicycle seat on the market with a full, two-axis movement that’s designed to reduce or eliminate lower body pressure throughout the complete pedaling cycle. It is anatomically designed to follow your body and relieve numbness and pain in the groin, hips, perineum and tailbone.
The traditional bike saddle with an extended nose has been removed and replaced with two gel-padded seats that move up and down, independently of one another, to relieve pressure on the back of your thighs. The motion of the pads follows your legs as you pedal.
Bike seats with center cutouts can help to reduce pressure on the perineum, but may not eliminate it completely. Because the Dual Action Seat has two seats instead of one, there is nothing compressing on your perineum, so that problem is eliminated.
The seat is designed to move with you. The left-and-right pivoting action helps to reduce fatigue and chafing. The side-to-side movement follows your hips and helps to loosen tight back muscles.
The overall saddle design also still needs to match your physiology. With traditional bike seats, the majority of your body weight is concentrated in a small area.
The Dual Action Seat is 12 inches wide and spreads your weight over a larger area on two gel pads, making for a more comfortable ride. The gel pads are encapsulated in a weather-resistant fabric that’s pleasant to the touch. Your ‘sit bones’ bear all the weight, as they should.
The seat is easily adjusted with the included Allen wrench so you can set the right angle for both seat pads.
Why is the Dual Action Seat More Effective Than a Conventional Bike Seat at Relieving Numbness and Pain?
- Numbness created by conventional bicycle saddles, as well as the pressure they put on sensitive body parts, have been eliminated by removing the traditional saddle horn and replacing it with two gel pads that move horizontally and vertically to mimic your body’s own anatomy.
- With the horn removed, there is nothing in the middle of the seat to compress arteries or nerves in the perineum and groin.
- Pressure on the back of thighs is relieved because the two pads to move up and down, independently of one another, just as your legs do. This motion of the pads follows your legs as you pedal.
- The unique and revolutionary left-and-right pivoting action reduces fatigue and chafing, and is designed to lossen your back and give you a more comfortable ride.
- Maximum comfort and support are provided by the large, 12 inch wide padded seat.
