There are several types of seat suitable for several types of needs. In this context, it will be necessary to choose it according to your needs.

The shape of the saddle: first criterion

The shape of the saddle is the first criterion of importance to take into account when choosing. In this context, not all forms of saddle will necessarily fit the discipline you practice. In order to find the best shape, do not stop at the ready-made ideas that flat stools are better or worse than others. Indeed, people with ideas received and all made of the saddle will encounter many problems along the way.
