HM1100S - Airhawk?

981 Views 8 Replies 6 Participants Last post by  joeR6
Hi all,
I have a trip coming up where I'll be covering significant distance every day for the best part of a week. However, I find that any time I spend more than a couple of hours on board the seat gets pretty uncomfortable. I have the DP sports seat fitted - the original is even worse as the foam quickly collapses and my weight goes straight through to the seat base.
So I'm considering an Airhawk - can anyone please:
- Let me know if this worked for you?
- Which Airhawk model is the best for an HM1100?
- Has anyone got a better idea?

Thanks in advance all, any suggestions welcomed.

I originally bought one for my multi, but I also tried it on my hyper. I didn't like it on either, it doesn't feel planted, no matter the level of inflation. Im sure you're not going to be busting corners every mile, but it's an awkward feeling that I dint feel comfortable with. I understand what you're saying aboot the stock seat. It feels so cushy at first, but then really pushes on your pressure points. My two suggestions are as follows.

1-longterm, you will like the sargent comfort seat. I didn't at first,, because it's flat like a tractor seat, but after getting used to it, it's really comfy.

2- short term, get a good pair of cyclist shorts. I wear my Fox mountain biking shorts with thin padding on the butt and inner thighs under my jeans on long rides now. It has worked really well. You can't tell that they're on while walking around, but they save your ass (literally) on long rides.

Have a great ride!
