  • Seat pad width is controlled by one simple adjustment dial
  • Durable nylon/glass base stress tested to hold over 350 lbs
  • Medically Approved
  • Comfortably designed seat pads with Nu-leather cover & gel padding
  • Seat pads also contain built in elastomer for stable ride
  • Adjusts from 9"  wide up to 10 1/4"  wide. Maximum center opening is
    1 1/2" wide.
  • Each seat pad is: 4" wide  x  5 1/2"  front to back.
  • Fits any Standard, Conventional Rail-Mount Bicycle 
    (7/8" post clamp available)

The two seatpads move slightly with the weight and downstroke of the rider, keeping legs fresh mile after mile. Enclosed in the base of each seat pad is a stiff elastomer (cushioning plug ) which allows the pads to stay with the rider’s down stroke providing a very stable ride.

The nu-leather covering is perforated to prevent stretching and allowing for a customized fit.

The adjustment dial allows for the width separation of the seats to be synchronized and held in place. This allows other riders to adjust to their comfort zone.

The EasySeat Deluxe is a unique seat.  It may take time to adjust to the firm dual flexing pads.  Try it for a couple of weeks and see.  Here is some advice on how to adjust an Easy Seat from one of our Customers:


"

Having been scheduled for a prostate operation and its implications on my cycling, I did some research and eventually found Bicycle Seats.com, who have a range of saddles specifically designed for prostate victims. How fortunate that I found this firm, who were so caring, friendly and prompt in their response to my queries.  They recommended the Easy Seat deluxe saddle for me, and offered me a full refund if I was not satisfied. If you need sincere advice, I would really recommend consulting this firm.  After nearly 3 weeks of using the saddle, I am happy to report that I am very satisfied with my purchase.  However there is scant definitive information on setting it up, which is a new experience for cyclists who are totally unaccustomed to riding a noseless saddle, and I thought it would be valuable for the cycling community to have some reference document that is practical, and that could be helpful. So here is my experience.


I am a 74 year old man who believes firmly in the tenet of good eating, mental stimulation and exercise as the basic ingredients to sustain one’s health in one’s senior years. All in moderation, but very necessary.  I do not cycle to excess, and my routine consists of leisure and city cycling – I do about 7 to 10 kms daily, as frequently as possible, and prefer quiet routes around our home in Vancouver which offer varied degrees of inclines and variation.


The first and most important point that I wish to make is that you have to give this saddle a fair try.  Bicycle Seats suggest 3 weeks to break in both the saddle and yourself, and this is a fair estimate. Reading the adverse posts regarding this saddle, I feel that the writers did not give it a fair try. There is no doubt that a noseless saddle takes some getting used to, and although I am now convinced that my settings are as accurate as they will ever be, and I am able to ride long distances without discomfort, it will never feel the same as a conventional saddle. However, unless I specifically think of my saddle, it just doesn’t come to mind and I am unaware of any conscious discomfort. The main thing is that there is no pressure on the sensitive perineum area. The MAIN disadvantage is that one loses one’s natural cycling instinct to use one’s thighs over the nose to assist in steering - an unconscious facility which comes naturally when one learns to ride.  You suddenly become aware of how much you rely on the nose for steering, which you’ve always taken for granted, and suddenly you find that you have to rely totally on your handle bar contact for stability.  With this sort of saddle you will NEVER be able to ride with your hands off the handle bar – which you’re going to have to accept.  To overcome this setback, it is ESSENTIAL that you purchase a good mirror to watch the traffic behind you, as you may lose stability the moment you try and look over your shoulder, with possible disastrous results.  I cannot stress the importance of this enough.  But don’t let that turn you off.  Once you’ve set up your saddle properly, particularly your handle bar height, and have gotten the ‘feel’ of this new style of riding, you’ll be just fine.  I repeat – YOU HAVE TO GIVE THIS SADDLE A FAIR CHANCE BEFORE YOU CONDEMN IT.


Now to the setting-up part, which for me was a process of trial and error and reference to the many, and often diverse, suggestions for setting it up.  Don’t worry if your initial settings don’t work when you try them on the road for the first time.  You’re going to have to do a lot of tweaking over a few days until you find the ‘sweet spot’ and it will take about a week to get the feel of the settings, when you will intuitively feel that the saddle needs to be raised slightly, or moved back or forward, or the gap adjusted or the handle bar raised or lowered.  Also, until you get used to it, you’re going to feel pretty tired after each session and your joints will be feeling the effects as well.   This WILL happen, so be patient, and hopefully my guidelines will assist you to adjust speedily. 


1.       Firstly, start off and set up the saddle as if it were an ordinary saddle, and follow the usual guidelines without getting too technical.  In fact, the Bicycle Seat.com site has some good suggestions for getting started.  There are many very technical references on the web for setting up a bicycle saddle, but if you’re just a casual, keep fit cyclist like me, I find that the ‘keep it simple-stupid’ method is probably the best.


2.       If you already have a saddle installed correctly and its not a new bike, then simply replace the old saddle, and position it so that it corresponds with the rear position of your old saddle.  Adjust the gap in the middle to be similar to the corresponding area of the conventional saddle.  Don’t think that you have to make it wider apart.  More of this later.


3.       Sit on the saddle in a doorframe with somebody to assist you if possible, and set the height to correspond with the usual ‘leg extended – heel on pedal – straight line’ guideline, which always works.  I have tried the suggested method of optimizing the height by the 109% method, but this depends very much on having purchased a bike which was carefully selected from the start.  In my case this didn’t work as my legs did not fully extend when I pedaled, so I went back to the tried and trusted method I’ve just mentioned.


4.       The next important step is to adjust the forward-aft position, and for this I used the ‘relaxed horizontal crank position’ where a weighted string held on the bone below the kneecap intersected the center of the crank. 


5.       Start off with the saddle inclination pointing up slightly.  A noseless saddle tends to force you to slide forward, and you need to counter that.


6.       Now adjust your handle bar height.  Start off with it on a level with the center point of the saddle, and then raise it just a little more – maybe a centimeter at the most.  A noseless saddle of this type requires that you cycle in an upright position to take the pressure off your wrists.


7.       You’re now ready for your first ride.  Take your saddle and handle bar adjustment tools with. Get on the bike in a quiet area.  Make sure your mirror is adjusted so that you can see clearly behind you, and take off!  Your first attempt is going to make you feel awful, and wondering why you bought the darn thing in the first place. But remind yourself that it is going to take at least a week before you even start to get the feel of it, so convince yourself that you’re going to give it a fair try.


8.       From this point, stop frequently and make adjustments as you feel necessary.  The three main considerations are:


a.       DON’T make more than one adjustment at a time – don’t feel that you should raise the saddle and lower the handle bars in one go.  Give each adjustment time to ‘get the feel’ of it.


b.      Make SMALL adjustments at a time.  Even a few millimeters can make a difference.


c.       Concentrate ONLY on the particular adjustment for that ride.  Ride short distances and experiment only with that adjustment and then go home, until the next day – or maybe later in the day.  DON’T RUSH IT.


9.       Start by having a narrow gap between the two parts of the saddle.  Don’t think that a wide gap will sit easier on your buttocks.  Again – look at the width of the ‘missing part’ of your conventional saddle.


10.   Probably the first adjustment will be the inclination of the saddle.  If you keep sliding forward, tilt it up – but not too much.  This adjustment can be deceiving as it is inter-related with both the forward-aft position and height.


11.   When you feel that the tilt is optimum – even though you may still be sliding – then try adjusting the forward-aft position- but only a little at a time.


12.   Next go for the saddle height – try moving it slightly up or down.  I found that a single, small adjustment here can make a heck of a difference.


13.   Next try the for-aft position in the same way.


14.   The last saddle adjustment should be the width of the gap.  Remember you’ll start off with a pretty small gap, so you can progressively widen it to the most comfortable position.


15.   FINALLY try raising the handle bars – but be careful you don’t pull them right out of the tube.  This could be potentially disastrous!


16.   Try this procedure every day for a week, and you should then start feeling that the adjustments are more intuitive as the saddle wears in, together with your personal ‘feel’ for this new experience.  If you feel after 3 weeks that you’ve genuinely given it a good try, then consider returning it, but remember that it IS going to be VERY uncomfortable at first, and, like I said at the beginning, it requires a new – unnatural way of riding a bicycle, and although it may feel different if you consciously think of it, for the most part you will not be aware of any discomfort.


17.   As a parting comment, I make use of the free Runtastic Road Bike app which is available for the IPhone, and really provides a good record of your cycling experience.  I also have one of those little cycling computers which gives you ongoing information about your speed, distance, cadence etc, as I am not keen to have my valuable Iphone mounted on the handle bars in case I DO take a tumble – which is always possible as a cyclist.  AND REMEMBER THE MIRROR.


I hope you will find some value in this article and wish you happy cycling with your new Easy Seat.  I also urge you, if you need to make further enquiries about a suitable seat for you prostate problems, to look at the Bicycle Seats website http://www.bicycleseats.com/prostate-relief-seats.html?source=gawprostatebicycle and to contact them with your specific problems.

Seat flaw
The seat is great for prostate relief but the weight on the seat is too much for the crossbolt and eventually the bolt breaks and the seat pad is loose and falls off. Only the weight of my body pressed down on the pad holds it in place. If I get up off the seat the pad falls off. This has happened twice already. Its a flawed design. I'd probably be better with a single pad seat with a deep center.

You can Continue to Enjoy Cycling.
I have had my Seat a couple of months now and after Riding & Adjusting, Riding & Adjusting, Riding & Adjusting I have now found the SWEET SPOT. Pure Ecstasy. The adjustments needed included, Height of Seat, Angle of Seat Tilt, Angle of Handle Bar Stem, Hood height of Handlebar. A little Rubik's Cube like with the many different available selections so don't expect a perfect result on your first try.. Just don't loose the Focus !!! I also invested in a good suspension seat post but that was just purely my choice. Love the seat.

Good seat
Works well. Time consuming to get properly adjusted. Mine did not come with any instructions on proper fit. I guess that the attorneys wanted a medical board to make the instructions. I had to ride mine several times and over 35 miles to get it adjusted perfectly. Carry the tools needed for adjustment with you until you get it right. If it hurts or gives you uncomfortable pressure it needs to be adjusted unless you are going over 10 miles. The seat is made for cruiser style bikes.

no pain
this seat was definitely the solution for the pain that I was getting in the groin area. I like the adjustability for width, and the flexibility while in motion is very practical. what I think is very cheesy, is by default, this review automatically rates itself 5 stars before you even start typing. for that, you lose a star.......

I got this seat because of a medical condition. I have had similar seats in the past but this one is far superior. The gel pads are a very nice touch too. Well made and easy to adjust. Well worth the money.

Is an ok (average) seat for comfort. No bike seat is ultimately comfortable just based upon their design. You will need the gel pads.

As a person who has gone thru radiation treatment for prostate cancer I was basically looking at giving up riding. After hearing about these seats, I decided to give them a try. To be very honest they are not the most comfortable seats I have ever used, but to be able to ride again, it is worth it. The longer I have used them and made adjustments, the easier it is to ride my bike. I recommend you also get the gel pads to add comfort while riding. I would buy them again if needed

Great seat to relieve prostate pressure
This seat is great; I can now bike without pressure on my prostrate. The seat feels weird at first, and it does put more pressure on my arms. I am so glad I took another reviewer's advice and ordered the gel pads; it would have been uncomfortable without them. It took a little adjusting; the main adjustment was to lower my seat, because this seat is very high.

Review: EasySeat Deluxe
Hi. My name is Phil Boychuk. I recently bought a dual-pad EasySeat Deluxe. I could no longer ride my bike because of pain in my sitting muscles. The EasySeat allows me to ride again. I would probably prefer that the dual pads were each wider, but I certainly like the space in the middle of the seat. That space lets me ride again. I have a cruiser-type bike for leisurely biking. Maybe fast riders like dual pads the size they are. Excellent innovation.

This seat is exactly as advertised. It's giving me immense peace of mind knowing that there is no pressure on my prostate. I got used to it very quickly and don't find the bike hard to control. A great addition to my bike.

Easy Seat Deluxe -Dual Pad
Having had a radical prostatectomy in 2015, riding a bicycle with a good standard seat was becoming more and more uncomfortable in the area of the pubic symphysis (probably due to scar tissue). With the nose of the seat gone, there is no longer any pain at that location. I think that I will probably need to use the gel pads for greater butt comfort.

it might work for other people but I have carpal tunnel issues. The seat put more pressure into my wrists and hands causing numbness within 4 km. I had to return and change back into a regular gel seat. Balance was also an issue as I commute and it is generally quite windy.

Very Bad Design
The center bolt on my seat broke after just a few weeks. It is a very bad design. Any significant force on the seat from bumps or curbs will cause the bolt to shear off. Very disappointing!

I could not properly adjust the seat to my riding position. I tried several times, assembled, disassembled, and followed the fitting instructions. It has lots of adjustments and clear instructions, but just didn't work for me. I very much appreciate the return policy that allowed me to try this item. Thanks

Great seat, but careful adjustment needed
I just started using an Easy Seat II with my Bike Friday folding bike, and am very happy with it. The pressure on the prostate area is gone, and for my relaxed style of riding I don't miss the horn of a traditional seat at all. The Easy Seat II is well-suited to the upright seating position on my Bike Friday folding bike. To get optimal comfort though, it's essential to take the time to adjust the seat's width, tilt, and height with care. If you're like me an have a difficult time getting a comfortable ride on a bike, the Easy Seat II is well worth a try.

Get the gel pads
Sorry to say but I did not find this seat comfortable originally, but after buying the additional seat gel pads and changing the seat height and distance to handle bars I was able to ride my bike comfortably again without any pressure in the lower area. I give it a 3 star only because you have to buy the additional pads and adjust it quite a bit to be comfortable. Glad to be biking again.
