When riding, many riders will experience pain and discomfort in their buttocks and private parts due to prolonged pressure from their mounts.
5 simple tips to make your butt no longer hurt when riding:
- Adjust seat height and angle
The seat height should be adjusted to suit your height, and the seat angle should be appropriate, not too flat or too tilted, to reduce pressure on the buttocks and perineum.
- Frequently change postures
During cycling, you can change some postures appropriately, such as standing riding, riding with your hips raised, etc., which can relieve fatigue and pressure on the buttocks and perineum.
- Choose the right cycling equipment
Choose cycling pants with good breathability and comfort, especially the seat design should suit your personal habits and needs. Applying a little skin cream can further reduce friction and thus provide significant protection.
4. Choose a good cushion
Everyone’s hip shape is different, and no one cushion fits everyone. Don’t think that big, fat cushions are best for your butt. Sometimes those thin and slender cushions are more comfortable. You can consider ykywbike’s Italian double-arrow seat cushion, which is ergonomically designed and fits your butt better, making you more comfortable.
- Keep exercising
Exercises can strengthen the muscles of the buttocks and waist and reduce pressure on the perineum.
