beadrider install

i had heard these are a lifesaver on long trips so i thought i would try one out. they have several different models. i got the ultimate. with shipping $70. this fits our seat perfectly. i use a corbin seat as the stock one is a joke. will update once i ride on it! might cut the beadrider tag off, i don’t like it.

I personally have never understood the bead thing. In my head, I imagine that making the seat very... uh... slidey. I'm thinking about cargo planes that have rollers built into the floor for ease of moving large loads


Let us know how it goes! Science!

beadrider stats

from beadrider:
Until they try a seat made of wooden beads, most people do not believe they can be comfortable. Well we can tell you, from our own personal experience and that of our satisfied customers, they do work. BeadRiders allow air to flow between the rider and the saddle, keeping you dryer and cooler. If you really want proof of the airflow, just use a set of BeadRiders on a cool day, and it won’t take long to convince you that cold air is flowing beneath you.

Beaded seats also allow for the dispersion of your pressure points over a larger area. A customer relayed an interesting story to us. He had purchased a set of BeadRiders at Americade this year. He then went to another vendor who was selling an expensive seat pad. This vendor had set an electronic seat pad connected to a computer to measure the pressure points in the saddle with and without his seat pad. The vendor allowed our customer to compare our set of BeadRiders to the pad he was selling. Well the customer found his BeadRider seat, as measured by the computer, was much better at reducing pressure points than the much more expensive ($150.00) seat pad.

Finally, we also found that our comfort level while riding in the rain is helped by a set of BeadRiders. The seat allows you to stay high and dry, while water drains through the seat below you, instead of pooling underneath you.

butt update

i’m quite impressed with the beadrider. i was concerned about movement but it contours to your rear end and seat shape. it helped with smooth out the feel of bumps to your rear end and lower back. 70 bux is a drop in the bucket for comfort.
