Gary rides a Green Carbon Comfort http://www.rideouttech.com/product/green-carbon-comfort-bike-seat/
I am 61 years old and have been riding a bike for over 40 years locally and on extended cycle touring trips. I have always had seat issues causing discomfort, pain and other chronic “female” genital complaints from prolonged pressure in that area. I have also had problems as a result of having to wear padded bike shorts. On a ride they tend to get quite moist and soggy( like wearing a diaper) the longer you wear them. Since I have started using the rideout women’s seat I no longer have any genital complaints, I do not have to wear padded shorts (normal shorts are fine), and I never get butt pain from being in the saddle too long. I tell everyone I ride with that this seat is amazing and I will not use any other brand from now on.

Great bicycle seat affixed to a vintage diamond frame, ridden by a veteran bicycle commuter. Idaho Highway 54, outside Bay View Idaho. Keep up the good work RideOut Technologies.
While I was riding across Oregon and California two years ago, I entered a small sporting shop in Reedsport to get dehydrated meals for my nights camping. When I said that my bum was aching, he told me about a Reedsport citizen who invented a fabulous seat. He phoned his wife home to give me some coordinates. I got the name Rideout. It was enough to order and appreciate.
You did some hard research to push out such a saddle. The results speak.
My behind thanks you very much Miss Rutherford.
UPDATE: Andre has since purchase a second seat for his commuter bike and one for his girlfriend. What a nice guy!

Bicycle Seats-Independent Reviews:
Geared UP, March 2012
By Mike Deme, Editor, Adventure Cyclist email@example.com
Throughout the entire existence of the bicycle, inventors have been trying to devise a comfortable platform on which to sit when operating one of the many varieties of the upright machines. It seems a central focus has been the elimination of the nose of the saddle.
It doesn’t take much imagination to realize that a saddle without a nose might crack the comfort code but there’s a problem – the nose isn’t as useless as to be cast aside cavalierly. Quite the contrary, the nose provides a steering and stabilizing device that can be quite useful to the skilled rider. Some might argue differently, but I’ll defend the saddle nose as something to hang on to.
In the interest of our readers, I’ve tried many alternative saddles since 1994. The verdict on each one has varied from acceptable to downright laughable. The RideOut Carbon Comfort approaches the problem of discomfort differently, and, finally I’m sold on a non-standard saddle. Much of the reason is because the Carbon Comfort actually has a nose. It may be reduced in size and less prominent than on a standard saddle, but it’s there. Significantly, though, the reduced size does eliminate much of the numbness caused by standard-length saddle noses. But’s that not the only reason the Carbon Comfort is so effective. Equally important are the dimensions of the saddle. At 6.75 inches long and 8.75 inches wide, the platform provides excellent area on which your weight can be spread, alleviating pressure on the perineal nerve, which is often the cause of discomfort and numbness (and some say sexual dysfunction) when riding. In addition each side of the Carbon Comfort is raised allowing even less pressure on the perineal nerve while allowing air flow, which also adds a degree of comfort on long rides.
Admittedly, it took a bit of getting used to, but after a week or so of using the Carbon Comfort, I’ve decided to leave it on my touring bike.
At 13.4 ounces (380 grams), and with the Kevlar reinforced cover, the Carbon Comfort offers an excellent option for those who might like to try something a bit different to sit on when riding a
standard upright bike.

I received a saddle from Ride Out Technologies back in July for review and installed it on my Raleigh Sports for a test ride that turned out to be a test Summer.
The saddle is claimed as being the most comfortable bike seat in the world. Some of you have commented on the contrary about that and some of you have agreed. I’ll give you my honest opinion about the seat that stayed on my Raleigh bike for the entire Summer by answering a few obvious questions and share my riding experience.

RideOut Technologies Carbon Comfort Saddle – Women’s Adventure Magazine
Maybe you’ve tried every bike saddle out there without finding the right, pain-free one. Don’t give up your bike yet! It might be time for something completely different in saddle design.
The Carbon Comfort saddle by RideOut maximizes contact in the sit-bone area and minimizes contact everywhere else with a shortened and narrowed saddle nose, virtually eliminating any possible chaffing or irritation in your inner thigh area.
Each “wing” you sit on has a flex to it (I really liked this feature in Terry’s FLX saddle, too) that allows your hips to dip independently. The design is intended to facilitate blood flow, something that’s normally curtailed in the seat area on longer rides. There’s a bit of fiddling and adjustment necessary to get the saddle set up just right but RideOut provides detailed instructions on where to start off positioning the saddle and how to change the adjustment until you find the sweet spot.
I got to test the Carbon Comfort, both on my touring bike and on my hybrid. Because the Carbon Comfort requires you to lower your seat post significantly, I wasn’t ever able to get it positioned just right on the touring bike (I ran out of seat post height due to my fairly short legs), but it’s a winner on the hybrid and the saddle seems to work better when the rider is in a more upright position. I’m used to being able to do some steering using the saddle nose on my touring bike and this wasn’t really possible with the Carbon Comfort’s shortened nose. But for hybrid and comfort bike riding, the Carbon Comfort is just what the doctor ordered. Take advantage of RideOut’s 30 day satisfaction guarantee and try one.

Interbike Vendor Spotlight: RideOut Tech

Rideout Technologies , the makers of the Carbon Comfort seat, were one of our first stops last year, and they were early on our schedule in 2010 as well. When we got a chance to review their innovative new saddle last year, we found it to be impressive despite some finicky setup issues—
