E-Bikes & Bikes Customised to You
May 9, 2023
Hey, everyone. I'm Dustin. I've nearly 20 years of experience in the bike and e-bike industry, and today I'm going to show you a tricycle seat that you have to know about. Stick around.
All right, so I'm going to show you a tricycle seat for adults that you've got to see, but before I do, hit subscribe below. Stay in touch with us here at Sixthreezero. Be the first to know about all the new content we do, giveaways, and of course, new product releases.
All right, so today I've got Stella and Arden. They're going to demonstrate and give their thoughts and feelings on our Super Max Cush tricycle seat, which I believe to be one of the most comfortable tricycle seats for adults on the market. The reason is, this is a 14-and-a-half-inch wide saddle.
Let me go ahead and show you. We have two versions, one with a backrest and one without a backrest. And just to give you an idea of the width of the seat.
Now, a lot of riders who ride tricycles are looking for comfort. You're going on a stroll. You want to make sure you're not going to be sore after a ride, and you're comfortable. As you can see here, this is a 14-and-a-half-inch wide seat. It is going to give you amazing support and cradle your rear so it feels ultra comfortable on short or long rides. And we're going to show you what this looks like with Stella and Arden sitting on it.
The other thing, too, is a lot of riders prefer the backrest, so we have an option with the backrest. If you like that back support, you can get that as an option as well.
Now, the beauty of this seat is it still has a traditional bike seat shape. There are some other seats out there that get big. The only issue is you might start cutting off your leg. It's going to be when you pedal. So it can be painful if the seat is not designed correctly. So what we have here is, in my opinion, what I've seen, the largest bike seat in a traditional form like this which is still going to allow you to pedal and get the feel of the bike that you need while providing you the comfort.
All right, so Stella, we'll have you ride first. I'm going to pull it up here so they can see what it looks like from the back when you get on.
All right, go ahead and sit down. Okay, hold the brake there.
Now, you can see how wide that seat is and how much coverage that is giving her. Now, imagine a standard seat. Our smallest seat, which is already an oversized seat, is nine-and-a-half inches wide. Imagine that we put Stella on a nine-and-a-half inch wide seat, or even smaller for some of these other standard seats, six, seven inches. That's not going to give her the support that she wants and needs. So that width comes out on the sides, giving her a lot of support. And how does it feel for you?
Stella: It's comfortable and I feel supported.
Dustin: Yeah, beautiful. You can go ahead and take a lap around then, or here, I can turn the motor on for you as well.
All right. And she's using the throttle because this is an electric tricycle. That's why you don't see any pedaling happening. But it's another great reason to have a really comfortable seat if you are on an electric trike, because, oh, you're most concerned with comfort and not performance. And so we're talking about seats right now for comfort over performance. Not to say you can't perform, but if you're looking for performance, you clearly don't want the Super Max Cush.
Go ahead and come to a close, and feel good?
Dustin: Alrighty. Arden, you're up. Thank you, Stella. Let me move the seat up just a touch for you, Arden. All right. Okay.
Arden: Great. Thank you.
Dustin: Oh, and hit the brake.
Dustin: All right. Same thing here. Now, Arden's, 5' 10'', 300 pounds. Stella is 5' 7'', 250. You can see the same thing. He's getting great coverage. His body's not falling over the side of the seat, creating pain or cutting into him. And again, imagine we reduce that seat down to nine-and-a-half inches or even smaller. It's going to be very narrow on him. It's going to cause sit bone pain.
Now, I'm in the cycling industry. I understand smaller seats can be good for certain things. It takes time, though, to build up that sit bone. If you're not riding a lot and you're not getting used to it, you want something that you're going to get on, and initially, it's going to be comfortable right away, so you don't have to build a tolerance to your body. Right? And that's what's happening here with the Super Max Cush. Great support. You have the elastomer springs here. And Arden, what do you think?
Arden: I really, yeah, it's very, very comfortable, and yeah, I can't say enough about how nice and comfortable and cush, but it still provides a lot of support, too.
Dustin: Cool. Go ahead and take a lap for us.
Arden: All right.
Dustin: All right. Okay, you can get off.
Dustin: And then if you don't mind just wheeling it over here, I'm going to bring this one up.
Arden: Of course.
Dustin: Okay. Now we're going to move to the backrest. And the backrest option is great if you want to be in a relaxed position and be able to lean back a little bit and still get that support.
All right, Stella, you're up. Now, the same great seat. Just you've got the support here, and we'll demonstrate here. We'll show you. Okay. So now she can lean back a little bit and it's going to take off some of the pressure on her back. When you have to sit in a certain posture for a long time, it may become painful. So it's nice to just have this here to give that support. Do you like the backrest better?
Stella: I love the backrest.
Dustin: She's loving the back.
Stella: I need support.
Dustin: She needs support. There you go. I think a lot of Americans would agree with that statement. All right, go ahead and take a ride. And you can just watch her when she's cruising on the Easy Transit folding trike, how relaxed. And it's just enjoyable because now she's in a very, very comfortable position. And she's using the throttle as well.
There we have it. You like this trike, don't you?
Dustin: It allows you to just kind of ... It's very comfortable, right?
Dustin: The handlebars come into you.
Stella: It feels like riding on the beach and you're going a long way, you can just do this and just cruise like this.
Dustin: Yeah. Yeah. I think also the ability to get the handlebars right up to your body, right?
Stella: Yeah, it's right here.
Dustin: Yeah. Cool.
Dustin: Do you want to get off so Arden can give it a spin?
Stella: Okay. Let's do it.
Dustin: All right. All right, so same thing. He can lean back. He's got the support. And you prefer the backrest as well, right?
Arden: I do. It's nice to have it there.
Arden: Of course, if you need to lean forward. But after a long ride, to lean back a little bit, that's very nice to have that support.
Dustin: Cool. All right, so go ahead and take a lap. Comfortable?
Arden: Very comfortable.
Dustin: Do you feel the same way about it as Stella, who cruises for miles on the beach?
Arden: Absolutely. Who couldn't? This is really, really nice.
Arden: One of the things I also love about Sixthreezero seats is they always look proportional to the bike. It's never too big. So in case, you have a little bit of vanity about it. No, it still looks proportional to the bike, and you get the support and the comfort.
Dustin: Yeah, that's definitely something we've tried to focus on here designing a seat that fits the style of the bike but still is comfortable. To Arden's point, I think, is something in the marketplace not always do you see. You see something that's gargantuan and it doesn't fit the style and the appeal. We really want it to feel streamlined, feel cool, and not take away from the aesthetic of the Sixthreezero brands.
All right, so there you have it, a tricycle seat that I thought you needed to see, and I hope you like seeing it. If you have any other questions about it, comment below or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org, or call us at (310) 982-2877. Also, join our Facebook pedalers group. You can ask questions about this seat in advance of purchasing before you purchase, so you can talk to other riders and see how they like it.
All right, so thanks for sticking around, and don't forget, it's your journey, your experience. Enjoy the ride.
