The prostate is a very delicate part of the male cyclist’s body, an area where constant pressure is exerted in all cycling modalities. A good position on the bike and a good choice of saddle are very important, as all your weight will rest on the prostate area and its surroundings. Your position on the saddle should distribute your weight proportionally between the ischia, the perineal area and the gluteus. This will prevent you from experiencing pain and numbness, so that you can enjoy your ride without any problems or discomfort.

Prostate-friendly saddles have been designed over the years to solve the problems associated with the prostate area that many cyclists have experienced. The prostate is an organ that deforms with age and bad pressure on it can lead to discomfort or even more serious problems. These saddles have a hole in the centre of the seat, leaving this area pressure-free so that the prostate area is relaxed.

If you suffer from prostate problems or normally feel discomfort in this area when you ride a bike, we recommend that you buy a prostate-friendly saddle to avoid that pain and to comfortably enjoy all your bike rides.

At Santafixie we have compiled a list of the 10 best prostate-friendly saddles with a brief description of each one, their main characteristics and our personal opinion of each one. If you are thinking of buying the best anti-prostatic saddle, don’t hesitate to take a look at our TOP 10 and choose the one that suits you.

All Comments

  • I consider the Sunlite Cloud-9 Cruiser the right bike saddle for numbness. It has an ingenious design: dense on the butt section, tapering towards the groin to support the butt cheeks while removing the pressure off the perineal area. It was made by premium-quality vinyl material for durability, underneath it is a gel foam-reinforced cushion. Its 10.5-inch wide rear section is sufficient to support a male or female cyclist’s buttocks without causing discomfort.

    • I recommend this bike saddle to anyone who wants a more comfortable biking adventure, free from perineal numbness and pain. It is versatile and effortless to install. Moreover, its admirable design helps support the buttocks only a few other saddles can.

  • I still can’t find a bike seat I can sit on and not have pain or go numb.If someone would design a seat shaped like my toilet seat,I am sure that would work best.Any takers?

  • Being comfortable during the ride is what the biker needs every time hits on the road. And one way to achieve it is to use a suitable bike saddle to prevent numbness. Thank you for recommending this.
