Cushion-Aid Offers New SaddleDonut

For those suffering from dreaded saddle sores, Cushion-Aid has launched its latest SaddleDonut, bringing relief to the arses of cyclists everywhere. 

According to Cushion-Aid, the SaddleDonut can be fitted to any cycling-specific saddle, positioning it directly beneath the rider’s sit bones to provide additional comfort at contact points. Moreover, it’s finished in black, making for a discreet application with  any saddle that can be applied and removed with ease.

“I created the SaddleDonut after experiencing significant saddle sores on RAAM. After extensive research, testing and riding we are delighted to offer the Cushion Aid, SaddleDonut, which we believe significantly improves both comfort and performance on longer rides,” explains Cushion-Aid’s Christian Echavarria

“It is a new brand of sports performance technology for serious and competitive road cyclists and triathlon athletes. We have incorporated Cushion-Aid’s proprietary Power-Lock Technology into our range of products to couple the design characteristics of your favourite saddle with the unique anatomy of your pelvis, thus eliminating micro-sliding during the pedal motion and providing more comfortable contact with the saddle.”

A testimonial from rider Corky Semler said: “I have been using the SaddleDonut for about 2,000 miles over the past five months on both my gravel and road bike. Two mention-able items; first, when installed properly, and the instructions and video make it literally, very easy to do, the cushion is simply not something you are aware of when riding, as far as being uncomfortable or being a constant reminder that you are sitting on something different.

“Second, there is a definite sense that you are firmly planted in the saddle and that the previously unnoticed, sliding around is now gone! It does give the sensation that you are able to put a bit more power into the pedals since your hips and butt are now stabilized on the saddle. Since I am not an ultra-distance cyclist and have really never suffered from saddle sores, I can’t comment on that aspect of the product. I will say that now that I’ve used it for a significant time, I would not want to ride without it, knowing the extra stability it gives me when riding.”
