"The Rido saddle is really working. I bought one for myself and now three more: one for bike No.2, one for the girlfriend and one for the flatmate. We are all very pleased."

"I have been very happy with the Rido saddle. It does not cause any numbness or discomfort....a vast improvement on previous saddles!"
P.D, Skegness, Lincolnshire, UK
"Bought the RIDO saddle for my time trialling bike because I’d got pretty numb on 100’s and 12 hours. I’d switched to using my road racing bike for longer time trials last season because it absorbs road shock a lot better but I still found that I was suffering from numbness. Furthermore, 50 miles of staying on the tri-bars was distinctly unpleasant. This year I’ve ridden two 100’s on my time trial bike fitted with the RIDO – both PB’s! No numbness and able to stay on the tri-bars all the time. So I’m very pleased with the saddle and as a result I’m going to ride my time trial bike in tomorrow’s 12-hour.
Mind you I’ve also recorded my first sub-hour 25 on the RIDO so it’s not hurt my short distance performance either!"

"I have now ridden several hundred miles using the new Rido saddle on my steel lightweight. I have not experienced numbness or any other problems associated with the racing style saddles I have used previously.
The new saddle does help to relocate pressure to my 'sit bones', which feel less vulnerable to pressure. This creates more resistance when pedalling and reduces the need to de-weight the saddle when riding bumps.
Happy so far!"

"The black RIDO is excellent. It is on my road bike and I can do 80 miles and still be comfortable at the end. I am trying to get club members to invest, but they think it is too wide, but I am not going to change mine!! Many thanks."
C.W, Spalding, Lincolnshire, UK
"Did 60 miles, with a couple of minor hills - no problems. Mainly road based cycling. I ride a tandem trike with my wife and also have a fixed and a Rholoff geared bike that I use. Been having trouble with saddles for a while - amazed at the pressure relief in the centre of the Rido saddle - even with the logo right where it shouldn't be!
I fitted this saddle to our tandem and am amazed how good it is for what appears to be a plastic moulding, although it is obvious that a lot of care has gone into the design of this saddle.
My latest order is for saddles for two of my other bikes and after trying these I will more than likely have to order yet one more so that I have the same saddle on all my bikes! My wife encouraged me to try a 'glow' one just in case it is more comfortable than my blue one, so I have ordered one to try. My previous saddles were Terrys and prior to those, Avocets - neither of which spread the load and reduced all pressure away from the central area like Rido does!"

""I purchased one of your saddles last week and after trying it out, I find it a great help in relieving discomfort in the crouch and prostate areas. I was recommended by the Prostate Cancer Research and through my local CTC to try one out.It was great yesterday on a 46 mile trip I made into the Peak District."

"I like the saddle a great deal! I am a once a week, 50 year old rider, but the saddle is a great improvement over anything else I have tried before!"

"I got my first Rido saddle from you nearly a year ago. I live in Ealing, West London, and use my bike as a means of transport rather than using a car, so most journeys are under an hour's duration. Two or three times a year I go on long leisure rides in the country, just recently for three days in the Derbyshire Dales.
On all these journeys I have found the Rido saddle comfortable. With previous saddles I used to experience slight soreness after about thirty miles, but not at all with Rido either during or after a ride. For this reason I bought a second Rido saddle in May this year for use on my bike on the Isle of Mull, Argyll, and used it on several long rides with the same good experience."

"My Rido saddle is great!.... in fact I now own 2.
Will you be making any other colours besides black and blue?"
A.C, Sunderland, Tyne & Wear, UK
"No problems to report.... I think the (RIDO) product is great value for money. I commute to work twice a week (12 miles each way) and find it very comfortable."
C.P, Mytholmroyd, West Yorkshire, UK
"Really excellent (RIDO) saddle! I use it (my bike) for fitness or general getting about on holiday. I have a sensitive prostate and it worked a treat!"
Maj.D.C, Salisbury, Wiltshire, UK
"All the reports back from the people who purchased them (RIDO saddles) locally, say they are excellent, a completley diffirent ride!
Two of my cycle friends and myself regularly cycle 50 miles on a Tuesday and Thursday with no discomfort at all. Very good indeed."
C.D, Chesterfield, Derbyshire, UK
"Just done two long trips with the saddle on my 27 year old Muddy Fox. Hadrian's Way out - Wallsend to Ravenglass - and return via the C2C. 310 miles in five days. Still the same standard of armchair comfort even though the bike has no suspension and a lot of it was off road. One bit very interesting along the beach in front of Sellafield.
Trip two , four days later, North Shields - Derby about 230 miles. Awful weather and poor company with a lot of water hitting the saddle during our frequent breaks. Once again no problems- at least with the saddle.
I think I have now run five Ridos and have recommended the product to many others. Can we have the new one available with optional titanium rails?"

"RIDO - Had several. Love ‘em!!"K.D, Radcliffe-on-Trent, Nottinghamshire
"Hi there, just letting you know that the saddle does all I thought it would, following a recommendation by a clubmate. I look forward to the release of the racing saddle!"J.R, Southport, Merseyside
"I'm now in love with your saddles. That lack of numbness!!! I've ridden one on a four day trip to Paris and have just booked myself on another charity ride, from London to Geneva this time. I'm not sure which bike I'll be riding yet but it will have a Rido saddle. I have already made you at least one convert and would recommend your saddles to anyone for almost all types of cycling."G.P, Letchworth Garden City, Hertfordshire, UK
"I am a 57 yr old male biker who really is not very fast but I am tough. I ride for the challenge and to keep my weight under control. I currently have your saddle on my specialized road bike - on my trainer as the weather is unpredictable now. I have put about one hour on your saddle. After the first 30 minutes I decided to order a second saddle for my Kona mountain bike.
Your saddle is built correctly with common sense. It works well and I am pleased so far. I suspect that an eight hour ride is going to be much more fun next summer."
Thanks and I will pass on my pleasure to my friends."R.M, Newman Lake, Washington State, USA
"I purchased the Rido saddle because I had tried a few saddles for better comfort. Before I had experienced pain and even numbness in the legs after a trip of ca 1 hour.
I'm sad to say I havent been able to do so much biking this summer due to a back problem so I cannot give you so much feedback as I wish but I can say that the few short trips I have taken were good. So maybe after next summer I can
give you better judgement since my back is much better and hopefully there will be more bikeriding next season."A.E, Skutskär, Sweden
"I was thinking of stopping biking..... even short trips were very painful. I did try several saddles, more or less successful. But the pain keeps coming back.
Then..... I bought the blue RIDO saddle..... I put it on my Brompton and went for a ride.
If you like your (Brompton) bike, but prefer a painless ride go and get a RIDO saddle!!
I'm looking forward for your new saddles."J.V, Helmond, The Netherlands
"When are the new saddles coming out? I have a black one on my mountain bike, which I use for rides with the kids, and a blue one on my road bike. Now I need one for my exercise bike (yes I am a wimp not going out in the evenings).
I tried all the other saddles that I have and they are just too uncomfortble compared to the RIDO. I have to keep swapping saddles with my mountain bike. As my roadie mates keep laughing at the blue saddle, I would like to get something a little slicker for that bike. If it is going to be a long time then I will buy one of the old sort for the time being. I'm looking forward for your new saddles."S.D, Market Harborough, Leicestershire, UK
