Has anyone tried the Nimbus Air Seat?

Question related to long distance unicycling.

Has anyone tried the Nimbus Air Seat?
I know unigeezer and Ed Pratt fully endorse them, but those guys have iron bottoms from riding forever. How about us normal riders, who don’t normally go that far. Please testimony from “male riders” only. You gals know why?

I’m ready to spend my $120, but not without proof.

I put 620 miles on the Nimbus Air Saddle and had it for three months before it started to tear in the middle. It is quite comfortable though. UDC sent me a new one and will talk to the manufacturer about the saddle.

I use the air cover over my Kris Holme street zero and it has been a game changer for me. I ruteenly ride between 3 and 10 miles on street and paved trails on my 29er and find it very comfortable. I no longer wear padded bike shorts just a athletic supporter.

You put pictures on FB, correct? I saw a torn Air Stadium cover recently there and couldn’t find it anymore thanks to the non existent search features of FB… :wink:

Yes, that’s my pic of the air saddle. It is comfy, just didn’t last long.

It’s not real leather. Looks like that vegan leather; it’s not at all durable.

I’d say that the Nimbus Air Saddle is just like most other saddles, everyone is different and it will work for some but not others. Other then my noseless air saddle, any one saddle will not be comfortable for all riders.
Like Terry Peterson said in his review maybe the best thing to do is to have a few saddles and just switch them every so often. Ed Pratt reported in one video that the air saddle was great and in the very next video he said, “… My bum hurts, even with my new saddle”.
Likely my biggest concern would be the lack of durability. The photo above of the Nimbus Air Saddle after only 620 miles looks worst then my 50 year old vintage saddle.
