"The SEAT" offers a significantly more comfortable ride and healthy alternative to conventional bicycle saddles with a protruding horn or nose that can cause pain, numbness and even sexual dysfunction. "The SEAT" was invented by Ergo president Tom White, an award-winning industrial designer with nearly 40 patents including 18 for seats. According to White, the ergonomic design of "The SEAT" eliminates the horn and supports the body in comfort on the "sit-bones" as nature intended. "The SEAT" is in compliance with the CDC's National Institute of Safety and Health's (NIOSH) recommendations to use a bicycle seat with no nose.

A sheepskin cover is also available for a whole new level of cushiony support. Made in the U.S. from high-quality New Zealand sheepskin, the durable cover is designed especially for "The SEAT."
