Riding with a seat cushion Follow Seat covers are optional but can add extra cushion. If you are considering a cushion purchase, the Schwinn Cruiser Gel Seat Cover is compatible and works well with our bike. 94 2 comments Sort by Date Votes Jordan Meyers December 21, 2016 15:54 I find that gel bike seat covers do not provide adequate support on my sit bones because gel doesn't push back on your weight. Padded shorts are pretty good, but the padding in them is very thin and these shorts can get expensive since you need a couple of pairs so you can wash them after each use. I found a new product that uses the same high density foam found in those padded shorts, but the padding is a little thicker which really provides support for your sit bones. This product is called the Komfy High Performance Bike Seat Cushion and works great on my Peloton bike at home. 0 Permalink Baldrich January 15, 2017 15:08 Jordan I've taken your recommendation and ordered the seat cover. Even with the padded shorts it hard to last a full work out. My wife and I are just getting going on our Peloton bike. We are so excited. 0 Permalink Article is closed for comments.
