First, it’s important to choose a saddle based on your riding style. Once you've determined which category best suits you, you're ready to choose a saddle!

Cruiser Style (E-bike Compatible)

Cruiser bikes, also sometimes referred to as beach cruisers, typically offer 24” or 26” wheels, swift back handlebars, and a relaxed riding position. 

 

 

Comfort Style (E-bike Compatible)

Hybrid bikes are an example of a bicycle in the comfort category. These riders typically sit more upright, not as relaxed as a cruiser, but not leaning forward like sport bikes. The bicycles in this category usually have slightly larger wheels (27.5” or 700c) with medium-width tires to go a little extra distance at a slightly faster speed. 

 

 

Sport Style (E-bike Compatible)

Mountain bikes, road bikes, gravel bikes, and fitness bikes are a few examples of a more athletic-style ride. Typically, the rider is in a more aggressive position, leaning forward over the handlebars. These bikes are usually used for going higher speeds and longer distances and the saddles are typically narrower.

 

 

Adult Tricycle

 

Adult three wheel bikes, also referred to as adult trikes or tricycles, are commonly ridden at 10 mph or less. They provide the rider with extra support and stability.
