Two types of bicycle cushions
1. Narrow and slender hard seat cushion.
This narrow hard seat cushion is commonly used in professional mountain bicycles. The design is special for sports. When the pedaling speed is fast, the wide cushion is easy to rub the inner thighs and causes pains, and it also affects the pedaling action. So the design is slender and narrow, which effectively reduces the area of contact between the seat cushion and thigh. We know that the soft cushion cannot hold the body firmly and it will affect the pedaling efficiency. Because the buttocks are like a sofa, the soft cushion has a large contact area with the buttocks. If you step on it quickly, the buttocks will move all the time and cause pains due to excessive friction. So a hard cushion is more suitable and is helpful for fast pedaling action.

The wide and soft comfortable seat cushion is very comfortable when riding bike. The design is special for leisure-oriented bicycles.

And there is no need to consider that the wide and soft cushion is not suitable factors of high-speed pedaling due to the leisure-oriented purpose.
