If you go by the name, and you expect the air comfy seat to transform the ride quality into a magic carpet ride, well I’ve got news for you, it doesn’t. And when you sit on it for the first time it does feel odd. In the beginning it almost feels like you are sitting on a foreign object.
Then of course, there is the movement, which again also feels quite odd at first. One needs to play around with the air in the seat to get the right feel and that takes a little time. But that’s about it. Once you get the right feel, the air comfy seat shows its real worth.
What is immediately noticeable is how well the seat cushions the bumps. Be it a succession of bumps or a single large one, the air comfy seat acts like an air pad between the seat and the derriere. To make sure it really works, I used it on a 300km ride where for the first 150km, I did not use the air comfy seat, but once the irritation started setting in, I put it on at the next halt.
It definitely made a big difference and the rest of the 100 plus kilometres could be covered with a lot more comfort. So yes it definitely works. The seat distributes pressure evenly and eliminates painful pressure points and numbness. The air ventilation reduces heat and moisture build-up and the cushion absorbs vibrations and shock.
Now the Air Comfy Seat will work with most bikes and will offer the same amount of comfort, but with sportier bikes, I see it being a slight hindrance if you like to shift your weight when attacking corners. But on the straights it will work without issues on most motorcycles.
