What causes saddle discomfort:
Discomfort in the saddle varies between riders.But it often arises from a rider setting themselves down on a saddle that is not the correct width.
We all have different-width ‘sit-bones'. The inchial tuberosities are the parts of your body designed to bear your seated weight.Most cases of saddle-related discomfort arise because te load is carried on the soft tissues between the sit bones rather than by the bones themleves.
Also bear in mind that the perceived width of your rear end has little to do with the actual bone structure. Good bike shops,and some brands,offer test ride programmes so you can try before you buy.
