Saddle Sores and How BiSaddle Can Help

Saddle sores are a common and painful issue many cyclists face, often causing discomfort while riding. Saddle sores can cause performance to decline and significantly impact riding comfort, especially for extended periods. Solutions like BiSaddle have emerged to address the problem in recent years. Discover how BiSaddle's adjustable design and unique features can alleviate saddle sore issues and improve your cycling experience. 

What Are Saddle Sores?

Saddle Sores are painful lesions that form on parts of the body that come in contact with the bike seat while riding. The friction between the saddle, your body, and the material of your clothing can cause these sores to appear, causing discomfort when riding. There are multiple types of saddle sores, and the type determines the severity of the sores. Symptoms can range from mild irritation to painful open wounds. Causes can vary from friction and pressure to bacterial infections called folliculitis. Be aware of the types of sores, such as subtle abrasions, boils, or cysts. Being mindful of your attire and your equipment can help prevent saddle sores.


Importance of a Comfortable Saddle

A comfortable seat is essential in preventing saddle sores. Traditional bike seats often lack proper ergonomics and fail to distribute weight evenly, leading to pressure points and irritating friction. Pressure points are areas where your sit bones receive the majority of your body weight and associated pressure causing soreness in the area. It's imperative to prioritize finding a saddle that suits your anatomy and riding to minimize the risk of developing painful sores.
