|“Great news on the Award! Well done! I’m now commuting to work (10 miles/day) on a hybrid and the saddle’s doing fine.”
“This saddle has been my saviour! I am a triathlete based in Colchester and I have had countless problems achieving a comfortable saddle (due to the pressure underneath) which has effected my ability to race and train to my full potential.
“The most comfortable saddle I’ve ever had! Expect a call from the East Anglian Press…. I’ve told them all about your saddle and how our cycling team will all be using them on our forthcoming 108 mile charity ride.”
“As a sufferer from prostatitis, the Rido saddle is by far and away the most comfortable saddle I have yet tried and certainly beats having to stand on the pedals all the time!”
“This is the second saddle I’ve ordered. Did 35 miles yesterday and no problems! Great product!”
“I have been in hospital for a month having my prostrate and bladder removed.
“… with regard to nerve pain, there was none. I was impressed by how well it coped with my weight.”
“So, how was it? Well the first impression I had was ‘I’m sitting on a brick!’ It doesn’t feel immediately inviting and I thought that I would still be feeling the saddle some time after I’d stopped riding. Not the case though!!
It’s asking a lot from any saddle to carry 434lbs, but with regard to nerve pain, there was none. I was impressed by how well it coped with my weight.
The combination of stiff frame, wheels, upright position and high pressure tyres makes for a VERY hard ride (I suspect that I could ride over a newspaper and read the headlines in braille through my backside).
I hope to get in a few longer rides in the next few weeks and maybe let my brother give it a go (he was suffering mightily from his ‘hole in the middle’ saddle today). I’ll let you know how it goes.
|“Thank you for the saddle. I have since used the saddle on one 30 mile and two 50 mile rides and have found it to be extremely comfortable.
I regard the purchase as very good value for money and I am happy with it.

“I am very pleased to say that the saddle that I have bought from you really does what you say!
“The saddles arrived on Saturday, and I have used one on my commuting bike for the last couple of days, clocking up about 70 miles. The best compliment I can pay them is to say that I have not noticed it at all!! The only comment I have, is that it would be nice to have an all black version, as the yellow stripe jars a bit with my black and red bike!
“I’ve been using you Rido saddle now for a couple of months on my 2nd bike – it’s done about 100 miles, very comfortable and easy to live with.”
Second saddle I have ordered – very impressed with it (and also the speed of delivery!)”
“The seat is completely different than any other I have tried but seems to work well”
“RIDO-CYCLE SADDLES: I have purchased to date two of these seats. I think the company is based in England and they give me good dependable service. The seat is completely different than any other I have tried but seems to work well. It is not a soft comfy type of seat – it just seems to be designed in such a way as to prevent pain but no real cushy type comfort. I like them and would or will buy more from them.
“I’ve used a RIDO saddle for the past 9 months and can honestly say that, once you get over the weird shape of it, that it’s the best saddle I have used.
“Another Rido saddle in black please!
“Really good saddle, promptly delivered. Thanks. Must have another one!”
“I’ve just written to Cycling Plus magazine about your saddle. It’s terrific and I’ve ordered another.”
“Yes, the saddle is excellent! So much so that I do not have any pain from my Sciatica when using it on my road bike. I will be ordering another one for my hybrid bike. It really makes a huge difference.”
“… amazed at the supportive, yet pressure free ride it achieves.”
“I bought my first Rido saddle 3 weeks ago and am amazed at the supportive, yet pressure free ride it achieves. I commute (on my bike) 50 miles per day and so spend many hours a week in the saddle.
“I have to say that my new saddle is so good I now no longer have any back pain which limited the amount of time I could manage on my bike. I am showing it around my club members and singing its praises. Good luck with the product! ”
“The saddles have made an enormous difference. No more adjusting my riding position to get comfortable, the most rewarding investment I have ever made, a truly great product.”
