Pressure points. A cushion??

Postby avolve » Wed Jun 01, 2016 2:19 pm

I have started to commute on my Catrike Trail (~33km round trip), and have noticed a bit of pressure from the seat.

I am wondering if a cushion or pad (like http://hostelshoppe.com/VENTISIT-Catrik ... sic-39463/, though just for the bottom) would be helpful.

What are others' approaches on trike?

Make your own it's cheaper I use them they work not to mention better air flow and comfort. You may find a neck rest comfy as well I made one out of the same material for my trike it's just relaxing to give the head a rest.

Hi, I have heard of people using a wheelbarrow inner tube to cushion the ride. Haven't tried myself but it is a very cheap experiment if you are willing to give it a go

We are fairly new to trike riding but often use a sheepskin on our seats. Very comfy. Husband has Also made his own headrest.
