“This is a true work of art and does exactly as claimed, even better! I think your company and outstanding saddle could easily start a major trend back to bicycling and help to green up the planet. No more pain. Thank you!”

“I just received my first Rido saddle from you today and took it out for a spin. The minute I sat on the bike I knew right away something was very different from all the numerous other saddles I have tried and been disappointed with. This is a true work of art, and does exactly as claimed, even better.  I purchased the Black and Yellow model and just love it. NO MORE PAIN.  I was beginning to think I would never ride an upright bike again. THANK YOU, Thank you, Thank you! Now I want to get the Glow in the Dark saddle for my other bike.
“I think your company and outstanding saddle product could easily start  a major trend back to bicycling and help to green up the planet. Of all the friends I have had who loved bicycling and then quit for “Various Reasons”, (which) if truth be told, all relates to not having a saddle that one can sit on without discomfort or pain. That to me is the reason most people stop riding.
There are really great bikes out there to be had and the missing ingredient is your wonderful saddle! ”

“Hi – thought I’d let you know that the saddle arrived at the weekend. It does EXACTLY what you say it does. Fantastic!”

“Neither my husband or myself suffered any saddle soreness or any other discomfort cycling these 982 miles! Quite an achievement!”

“Thank you so much for sending the other saddle. We have now completed the Lands End to John O Groats tandem cycle in 12 days, a total of 982 miles.
I have to say a huge thank you to the inventors / suppliers of the RIDO saddle. Neither my husband or myself suffered any saddle soreness or any other discomfort cycling these 982 miles! Quite an achievement! We love RIDO!!
Please forward my thanks to everyone involved with the RIDO saddle.”

“It (Rido) has solved my problem (numbness in the groin) completely! No remaining numbness whatsoever. That was my criterion and your product gets 10 out of 10!
Needless to say, I am fully satisfied with your product and would buy it again without hesitation. Thank you, thank you, thank you!!”

“The saddle has really made a difference!  I started using your seat without any ill effect. I (then) took part in the Anthony Nolan ride from Woodbridge to Dunwich a week ago last Sunday and covered the 62 miles without feeling any effects of prostititus which was knocking me out for 4+ weeks after a ride with my previous saddle.
So I’m glad I’ve found you – I’ll pass your details on to the Prostitius group.”

“This saddle is the best!! I buy mine on Bikemania.com.”

“It (Rido) is beautiful in its simplicity and comfort. My test machine had new moustache handlebars as well as the saddle. After a few minutes of getting used to the bars, I REMEMBERED the saddle. It had provided no sensation to make its presence known.
The Rido makes saddle discomfort more than a thing of the past,….. it makes it a non-issue!! Thank you!”

“… far superior comfort over others I have used.”

“Have just spent a three week holiday in Holland, most of the time riding. Used the saddle for the first time and traveled in excess of 250miles!! I am very pleased with the performance of the saddle, giving far superior comfort over others I have used. Great value and comes well recommended. Most of the riding was on paved cycle tracks for which Holland is renowned but I also ventured onto some off-road sections where again the saddle performed well.
I have passed on my findings to some other riders with full recommendations!”

“I think this was about our 6th or 7th Rido saddle (we now have one on most of our bikes – including 2 tandems). Both my wife and I have been very pleased with them. We got back yesterday from a tour of the Dordogne (max 106 km) and are doing the Norwich 100 (miles) next Sunday. Hoping for better weather!”
C.C, Halesworth, Suffolk, UK


“I have recommended your product to so many people and cannot rate the comfort highly enough. I currently own two for my commuter and hybrid and am hooked on the comfort!”
 J.R, Kirby-in-Furness, Cumbria, UK


 “I have ridden about 1300km on Rido now, including four or five 100km road rides on my Trek 2000. It works….. it’s as simple as that! And ‘numb knob’ no more…. that works again too! (I hope you don”t need an 8 by 10 glossy to get the picture!)
PS: I still can’t believe that I order on Wednesday night and the saddle was on my doorstep in 3 working days!”

“Before I bought the Rido, my bottom set the limit for how long I could ride my bike. Now it is the lungs and the legs, just like it should be!”

“Your (Rido) saddle fulfils all promises. Before I bought the Rido, my bottom set the limit for how long I could ride my bike. Now it is the lungs and the legs, just like it should be!

(Pre-Rido) saddle contact used to be painful; in particular I was developing prostate pain. Then I found RIDO by Googling prostate pain or something similar. Now I can ride literally for hours without even noticing the saddle!
I am biking just for fun and for fitness: about 50 km or two hours per ride. Now the winter season has arrived in Sweden and I plan to keep in shape with spinning lessons indoors. Next year, I might realise my dream of participating in the Round Lake Vattern race (300 km). If I can, it will be thanks to your saddle!”

“Rode the Rido for 20 miles on our tandem and it definitely works! No numbness at all!”

“It is really quite amazing. I don’t know how it works, or why it works, but I guess what’s really important is just that it works… period.”

“The saddle is wonderful! I use it on my road bike for leisure/fitness and have put close to 500 miles on it so far, with absolutely no complaints whatsoever.
It is really quite amazing. I don’t know how it works, or why it works, but I guess what’s really important is just that it works… period.
I don’t think I even really need to wear cycling shorts with a shammy anymore. There’s no point. I think the saddle makes cycling shorts obsolete.
You are a genius! The only suggestion I would even consider making is to perhaps add some additional colors (an all-black version would be my pick), but that’s just cosmetic tinkering. Your design really is amazingly ingenious, and has saved my groin area from the pain of other saddles. Another suggestion might be to let customers have the option to pay extra for expedited shipping (when I ordered it, I would have gladly paid extra to get it as quickly as possible!)
But, in terms of the saddle, itself, it does exactly what you say it does and I am completely happy with it. I don’t know what would possibly make me ever ride a different saddle, so I think you’ll be getting additional orders from me, that is, if my current one ever wears out or gets damaged.
I am very thankful to you. You saved my cycling!!”

“I can now enjoy my cycling again!”

“I was on the verge of selling my bike as I could find no way around the acute circulation problems I was experiencing in the sensitive male regions while cycling. As a last resort I typed ‘comfortable bike saddle’ into Google and ended up at your site.
Within minutes it sounded like I’d found what I’d been looking for and later that evening ordered one of your saddles.
I was not disappointed! The pressure is now off: the pivotal part is now my backside rather than somewhere else! What a marvellous innovative design, many thanks, I can now enjoy my cycling again!”

“It’s simply the best saddle I’ve ever ridden! Thank you!”

“… I have had problems in the perineal area, exacerbated by saddles which were too soft and were pushing up between the cheeks. I am very pleased to say your saddle is exactly what I needed!”

(1) “Yours is the third saddle I have tried and ‘boy’ am I glad I found you!
I read about your saddle in Cycling Plus a year or so ago in a major saddle test. Since then I have had problems in the perineal area, exacerbated by saddles which were too soft and were pushing up between the cheeks. I knew I needed a hard saddle with two “bumps” for my sit bones to rest on to keep the pressure off.
I had been considering the Specialized Body Geometry range, as they looked to have what I needed, when I suddenly remembered your saddle and decided to give it a go as yours was the lowest price and I was getting tired of spending ever increasing amounts of cash on saddles that turned to be no good for me.
I am very pleased to say your  saddle is exactly what I needed! I use it for leisure fitness riding (average time in the saddle of two hours). I have the RIDO saddle on a Giant Hyde Park hybrid bike and would furthermore not hesitate to fit another to an Audax bike which I hope to buy one day soon.
Keep making the saddles!!!”

(2) “I’m really happy with my saddle. I did write once before saying I thought it may benefit from being stiffer and you replied saying it was specially designed to flex under load. In hindsight and with further use I see what you mean and wouldn’t change the saddle in any way.
I ride for leisure and fitness, each ride now lasting for 2 – 3 hours. Before I fitted your saddle the most my bottom could take was an hour. Keep up the good work!”
N.G, Blackpool, Lancashire, UK


“I’ve just completed 3500 miles in nine weeks in the USA. Most days about 80, some 100’s. The bike was left outside over the whole period. My Rido, already with 1000 miles on it, performed impeccably.
Arm chair comfort! Congratulations!”

“The tail-bone is much better and the other more ‘standard’ saddle problems cured also.”

“I don’t care to think how much cash I have wasted on saddles that turned out to be less than comfortable. I had all the usual numbing and chafing problems, but saddles that (sort of) cured the one usually exacerbated the other. Then I developed coccyx (tail-bone) pain – probably from an old injury when I slipped down the stairs when papering the stairwell years ago – on top of occasional perineum sensitivity, probably related to old-man’s prostate (I’m 52) and I had to do something about the saddle. I commute to work by bike – 13 miles of mixed town and country – on a racer in summer or drop-bar tourer in winter and didn’t want to give up; Saving the planet after all!
I tried various saddles with grooves and fortunately was (mostly) able to return them for a refund. Eventually after some web-browsing I came across the Rido and read the testimonials. They looked genuine, and it seemed worth a try. The rationale of perching on the sit-bones to save crushing the delicate structures of the perineal area seemed so obvious I couldn’t believe that isn’t what all saddle makers are aiming for; but the Y-shape looked like it would take pressure off the tail-bone too (bit like coccyx-cushions which have a cut-away at the rear).
It works!! I would not now try a different saddle unless designed along similar lines. The tail-bone is much better and the other more ‘standard’ saddle problems cured also.
With darker evenings, I was forced to do a couple of days on the tourer with its original saddle since the racer has no lights. No good. Had to use the car until a second Rido arrived!!

“I have now been using a Rido saddle for about three months and can state, without reservation, that it is absolutely the finest cycle saddle I have ever used. It is also the only saddle which has entirely eliminated the numbness I always experenced after as little as ten minutes riding and I am now able to spend over three hours in the saddle without feeling the slightest discomfort or hint of numbness.
It is the only saddle I will now ride upon. The best £14.00 I ever spent!”
J.L, Strathaven, South Lanarkshire, UK


“Regular 24 miles per day commuting on my (two) Ridos. No more numb nuts after years of persevering with my leather saddles. A result!!”
