Bottom Line:   


The Tailbonez seat is an excellent product. The gel is intended to simulate tissue, something that foam rubber can't do. Male cyclists should search the internet for +impotence+cycling and find out the medical benefits of gel. I will say this, better to carry an extra pound of dead weight on my bike now than between my legs 10 years from now!

Gel Seats rule! Anyone who hasn't tried a gel seat yet is a fool. Its worth the extra 2 lbs. that it adds to your bike. Just because gel seats don't look cool doesn't mean that you shouldn't give them a try. Once you do, you'll never switch back. I tried my buddies bike the other day and couldn't ride it more than five minutes without busting my nuts. The bigger, fatter, spring-ier, the seat is, the better it is. If you haven't tried this type of seat yet then maybe you just think your too cool. I'm proud of my fat-boy seat even though I'm not fat. What would you rather sleep on -- a mattress or a piece of kevlar -- this was the best investment I ever made on my bike. Ten stars. Whoomp there it is!

Didn't like it.
Squshy feeling, like I shit my paints and was sitting in it.
Gave it to the wife, she likes it.
I'll get a suspension seatpost instead.
That and a good pair of shorts will get me farther than a gell seat.
I'd give it 2 peppers, the wife would probably give it 4. average...

I have used the saddle for about three months now and it has done wonders to my
buns. Good solid rebound on the gel on moderate hits. Good feel. Heavy as you
would expect. It's all for comfort! I use to have a Bontrager TI saddle (which
was about the size of my open palm)that was great if you were riding standing
up all day. I switch the two depending if it's a morning ride or a group race
up and down the woods!

Very comfortable, but after bending two sets of rails off road, I had to give up on this saddle (and I'm only 175 lbs.). I'd give this one 5 chilis if they'd make it with good quality cro-mo or titanium rails.

Bottom Line:   





The Tailbonez Gel Saddle is a nice comfort adder for those who don't like the
brick that's disguised as a seat on their bikes. The saddle surface is synthetic
leather and has gel padding underneath. It's wider than the hi-performance race
profile saddles. It's not so squishy that it compromises performance. The
drawback of the Gel Saddle is the added weight. Another drawback of this specific
model/brand is the rail material. They were heavily oxidized after only a short
period, making them look rather cheap.

Time for a new saddle.

I just have the stock saddle on my '13 Fuel EX8 and it is giving me too much pain even with padded shorts. What is the proper way to measure my seat bones to match a good saddle? Also what brands are the go-to brands for quality and comfort? Thanks.Read More »

Most comfortable saddle for commuting?

I can't seem to find a comfortable commuting saddle. I've tried many, the most recent being a Brooks saddle. They said it would get broken in and the leather would conform to your body, but, after 500 miles, the Brooks saddle still hurts. Any suggestions....I love to ride but tired of the pain/nu ...

Best Saddle for the Front Range?

just kidding. But seriously, my ass hurts. Whenever I spend a long time in the saddle on some long uphill grind, my taint hurts. I know that saddles are a personal thing, but there is some science to it, right? Like how the saddle lines up with your sit bones or something? Are there shops tha ... Read More »
