What advantages and disadvantages does silicone cushion have?


Let us get to know silica gel firstly. Silica gel is originally called as silicone rubber, and it has high adsorption performance, and good thermal stability and stable chemical properties, also it has high mechanical strength. So it does not easily deform as a sponge, and has more flexibility. 


At the same time, its shortcomings are also very fatal. Because of its structural problems, it cannot be breathable and perspiration. During long-term riding, sweat cannot be discharged from the buttock, which will result in a bad riding experience. At this time, the riding pants will act as a cushion between the bottom and the hard seat. After a few hours of riding with a silicone bike cushion, you will find that the sweat under the buttock is too hot and the temperature is high. So the silicone cushion has a nickname which is called as special use for fried eggs. This effect is most obvious when riding long distances. But silicone is a material with good elasticity. If you are a novice and only occasionally ride, the stroke is not very long, the silicone cushion of bike is still very suitable.

The soft and delicate natural tissue structure can best match the sweat glands of human skin to discharge sweat. And it is easy to dry quickly. No matter in China or in the world, although sponge cushions are not the best in the professional field of cycling, sponge bike seat cushions are commonly used, and still occupy a very large market. Here reminder that sponge cushions of bike should not be twisted or pressed with force to avoid damaging the sponge fiber.
