HOBSON EASYSEAT COMFORTABLE BIKE SADDLES FOR MEN AND WOMEN.
Hobson Easyseats are ergonomic, noseless (no-nose) bicycle saddles which protect sensitive body parts to avoid numbness, chafing and bike saddle pain. Equally suitable for men and women. "Original" is one of three Hobson dual seat pad seats.
The New York Times produced an excellent article on health problems associated with conventional bicycle saddles, and the advantages of noseless bike seats, including Hobson Seats.
"A Release Valve for Cyclists' Unrelenting Pressure " was published in the Science Section on 28 June 2011.

Fitting and Suitability
Easyseat Original are compact, true unisex bicycle seats which can be fitted to any bike with a level or raised hand position, including hybrids, folding, cruisers, city, mountain bikes, and static exercise bikes.
A few bikes, usually older models and some static exercise bikes, do not have the standard 2 rail seat attachment. In this situation the seat clamp can usually be changed.replica watches
Low cost seat clamps are available from Bikeco - Seat Clamps
Seat angle and position are adjusted on the seat post in the same way as conventional saddles. The width of the seat can be varied for comfort, with an adjustment range of 3.8cm.
NOTE: It will be necessary to lower the seatpost by up to 25mm to obtain the same seating height, due to the construction of the Easyseat. Please check that you have this adjustment available on your bike.
Easyseat Originals are designed for riding on roads and cycle tracks. If you frequently ride off-road or over rough terrain, we suggest considering the Hobson Pro-Hub X2, also supplied by Bikeco.
The steel support rails allow conventional attachment to any seat post.
The dual seat pads have hi-density foam padding with a waterproof outer surface.
Seat pads allow independently controlled tilts of the seat pads (approx. 7o) with each downstroke for improved ergonomics, better contact with the seat, and reduced friction.
The use of double seat pads in Hobson Seats is a significant innovation beyond "split bike seats".
Changing To A Hobson Seat
Hobson Seats employ a beneficial rider support system - via the sit bones rather than the crotch to avoid pressure on sensitive tissues and painful conditions such as Pelvic Pain Syndrome. This can take some time to get used to. The tissues around the sit bones may need to adjust over a period until the final comfortable state is achieved. This is mentioned in the instructions supplied.
The Easyseat Original has been stress tested to 160Kg (350lbs).

When first riding with your new seat, it is a good idea to take any tools needed to adjust the sear angle, forward-back position, and height so that the optimum fitting can be achieved.
