Comfortable on the Sit Bones!
Very comfortable seat, but the design could be better. The nose should be slimmer, but at least it is padded. Would you believe I gave up my expensive Brooks saddle for this one? Great price for a generally good seat and a whole lot more comfortable than many more expensive seats (and I have bought many!). Have ridden a lot of miles on it already and this one is a keeper.
- After riding on this seat for over 300 miles this summer, I had to raise this from four stars to five! The wider nose now does not seem to be a problem. This is truly a wonderful seat and so much better than the harder gel seats and even the hard Brooks B67S which taught me that price doesn't mean better for everyone. Thanks for making this seat!

Tush pushin' comfort! Wow!
I'm a guy with widely spaced sit bones (I snow ski and I was always told to keep my feet together when parallel skiing - and I would always say, "They're as together as I can get em!"), so I needed a wide seat. My original roadbike saddle was not only too narrow and hard, you could always feel the "Nutcracker Suite" playing as you rode!!
Tried a number of different seats (or saddles) and NONE were as comfortable on a long ride (5-10++ Miles) as this is!!
It is extremely comfortable for ME.
What a change! I used to do century rides every Saturday morning when weather permitted and always had to take "butt breaks" - now I only break for my legs (haven't ridden long rides since 2004 - getting back into it!).
Bottom line, if you are WIDE hipped and weigh over 135 or so, this might be just the ticket - I absolutely love it - I ENJOY riding again!🚴🏼😃👍🏻

Taller than you'd expect
I bought this seat hoping to get some more padded support while riding. It seems like a very comfortable (albeit sacrificially heavy) saddle, but I wasn't able to try it because the attachment rails underneath the seat are extend quite a bit, such that once it was installed, the seat was too high for me to sit on, even at the lowest possible position. Essentially, beware that it will be taller than most other saddles, both due to the generous padding and the extensive rails.

Very comfortable, but the installation was freaking horrible. Let me put this in perspective. I used to ride a lot and had a very nice padded seat. Two kids and a lifelong love for old-fashioned donuts later...well, baby got a bigger backside. So I decided to jump in the saddle with a nicer (and bigger) seat. This was definitely the right choice. It is wider than my old seat and is plenty comfortable, but I almost returned it before ever using it because of the installation.
Bike seats are supposed to be in and out in five minutes or less and once the adapter is installed this is true. However, the adapter did not come pre-installed. WHY the bloody #@#$#!! not? Really, it is WAY easier to take the adapter off a seat than to put it on. Thirty minutes in and after turning the air around me neon blue, my darling husband decided he'd heard enough and came down to mansplain what I was doing wrong. Fifteen minutes after that and about ready to give this seat some cement shoes and send it to it's forever home at the bottom of the local lake, he had the inspired idea of using my old adapter from my old seat instead. Lo and behold within five minutes he had it installed on my bike.
Suffice it to say, I was very bitter about the whole installation issue and when I took it out for a ride (around the lake) I thought that it had better be like riding on a cloud or it was going to be a permanent lake resident. (No, I would never pollute, but it made me feel better to threaten an inanimate than to admit I'd just made a bad choice.) So, five miles around the lake and, well, it wasn't horrible. It wasn't floating on a cloud, but it was good enough to go another five miles. Ten miles in and yes, I could tell the difference from my old seat. Mainly, the caboose wasn't screaming in agony. That also held true when, later that week, I did a fifteen-mile ride.
So, comfortable? Yes, definitely worth the purchase. I will say that if you're coming in cold (ie no biking whatsoever and expecting this seat to be some miracle comfort) you're probably going to be disappointed. I don't think any seat is that miraculous. But after doing three weeks of spinning, this seat was a very comfortable transition to outdoor cycling. Five stars for comfort, three stars for installation (and the fact I used a different adapter). A solid four stars.

So glad I swapped seats!
I put this seat on as soon as it arrived and I was not disappointed. The seat is very well-made and sturdy, as is the hardware.
I inherited a bicycle with a pretty wide seat that dug into my hip joints. What a relief it was to take that thing off and replace it. I noticed a difference as soon as I started pedaling. I went for a longish ride and although my butt was already sore from the previous seat it was loads better. Now I'll be able to ride much farther. And it looks nice, too.

I LOVE LOVE LOVE this seat.
I started riding my bike again after 2 years and was in so much pain because the seat that came with the bike was very uncomfortable. i have to bike 3.1 miles each way in the morning and at night for commuting purposes. I ordered this seat and used it today for the first time. I was pleasantly surprised that I felt no pain at all. I rode the 3.1 miles this morning and am looking forward to the commute home tonight. I highly recommend this seat.
Update: 6-1-17 I sprained my ankle badly and had to lay off the bike for a month. I got back on the bike and felt no discomfort at all.
I'm buying a new bike and can not part with this seat. It's going on the new bike as soon as i get it.

I LOVE THIS SEAT AND SO DOES MY BUTT.
-Easy to install. The seat comes with clear instructions, tools, and accoutrements to fit seat on any type of bike. Quality fittings make sure the seat stays in place. It’s easy to adjust the position when on, too.
-Comfortable. I can do 2+ hour rides no problem! Seat is a good mix between firm and butt-hugging softness/support. I am a bigger girl. This seat does not get in the way of my thighs and supports my wide hips.
-Easy to clean. Just wipe it down with some warm water on a soft cloth.
-The seat comes with a bike-shaped white-board magnet and dry erase pen! Neat-o!
-None! I really love this seat. It took me a long time to find one I was happy with that would withstand the abuse I put my bike through and this seat is PERFECT. I mean, c’mon, it comes with a bike-shaped magnet!
I would highly recommend this seat to anyone who values the happiness of their derrière.

Great exercise bike saddle for casual workouts.
My exercise bike is more of a way to keep myself active when I'm working or watching TV than a serious piece of exercise equipment. This is great for casual workouts while reading, watching TV, or playing computer games in relative comfort. It would probably be good for an upright bicycle outdoors as well. I'd recommend a more narrow saddle for serious or intense workouts.

Excellent Quality Comfort Seat
Excellent quality comfort seat. Unfortunately, it was too wide for me. It caused chaffing. I will gift this seat to my neighbor. Nonetheless, I was pleasantly surprised by the extra gifts that came with this bike seat. Bikeroo is an awesome seller! I'm new to MTB due to a running injury. I haven't been on a bike in years. So, those little bike tools were such a godsend! Thank you!!! The seat is so well made and cushioned my sit bones very well. It was the width that killed me. Awesome company. I feel confident in making future purchases from Bikeroo.

It is just OK
I had to test this product over a certain period of time before my review. First the comfort level of this product definetely depends on how long you ride your bike. It is perfectly comfortable for short rides like up to 20 minutes which is a huge improvement to my the original saddle the bike came with. If you ride anywhere between 30 minutes to an hour it is not that comfortable at all. It is still better but I wouldn't call it a life changing product. Even though I use it for the moment, I will probably try other models in the future that may give better comfort for longer rides.
