improving seat comfort for cyclists, suitable for the narrow saddles on mountain and road bikes.
Gel saddle cover to optimise the comfort of your bike.
Was riding for 380 km up this cover was not comfortable it gives pain then after 160km I went to other Atlas cycle shop and got a local gel cover and that is very comfortable and makes my travel very easygoing
Thank you for taking the time to give us your review. For long rides, the points where the gluteus comes in contact with the saddle is very important. The idea is to not have the same point come in contact for a very long time. I do a lot of long rides myself and I use the gel saddle cover(any brand) in the following manner.
We should start the ride without a saddle cover but with padded shorts. After about 100/150 km at the hint of pain, we should change the pressure points by adding the saddle cover. This will help you for another 100-150kms after which you should get back on the saddle without the saddle cover and a fresh pair of padded shorts. By doing so you will be spreading the pressure points around the gluteus evenly which will help you reduce pain.
For short everyday commute to work( 10-20km a day), The gel saddle cover will definitely help you get comfort. Let me know if the advice helped you. Feel free to write to me if you have any questions.

It should have still more comfort as it's not that helpful for rides more than an hour
Gel saddle cover its meant to hold the seat firm. but this cover moves a lot while on long rides.
Thank you for taking the time to give us your feedback. Apologies for the inconvenience caused. The gel seat cover comes in different sizes depending on the kind of seat you have. Please try to use the draw strings to tighten and secure the seat cover as firmly as possible. If it still moves around on the seat even after trying the size small, please exchange it try the new seat covers that have memory form. (https://www.decathlon.in/p/8381098_500-memory-foam-saddle-cover-size-m-black.html) . If even this does not suit the saddle, then the only option is to return the product.

Very nice product when it comes to comfort and I am very pleased to use it with my bike but I wish for more colors and designs where I visited the Ludhiana branch they had only 1 black color ya it fits perfectly but still we need some more variety
GOOD QUALITY PRODUCT
May be its material quality is good, but it's not comfortable for sitting.
Thank you for taking the time to give us your review. The gel saddle cover is added to give comfort, in this price range it the best saddle cover as it has layer of gel and foam padding. For enhanced comfort we recommend cycling padded shorts which depends on number of hour you ride the bike.
I purchased a mountain bike cycle it's very good but now question is for servicing , you people arrange for servicing and maintenance city wise,you can charge for that.
Using it for 2 weeks now. Quite comfortable, but my opinion is there could have been little more cushioning on the tip area
Very Elegant , ergonomically designed & Comfortable
At first I felt like so uncomfortable, then I figured it out the gap you had past that you missed cycling,.. So after days you will so comfortable and worth for the money.. Love cycling.. Save nature, stay fit
