No worries, and thank you for the question. I have not personally tried Sit Relief shorts so I will omit commenting on them. However, there are a multitude of products in the market that have been created for one purpose or another and then someone tries to market them for a specific activity. I believe Sit Relief falls into this category.I hope you don't mind if I ask a direct question as to how you compare to a competitive product and how your product is an improvement.
I had previously purchased a pair of LipoWear SitRelief shorts from Aerostich, on the recommendation of a couple of friends, who each swore by them. To be honest, I found them seriously lacking. Not only do you get an... unusual feeling from behind... when wearing them off the bike, they were also very hot when the weather was warmer. I could have dealt with these side effects, had they lived up to the promise of increased comfort in the saddle, but for me at least, they didn't. I gave up on wearing them.
Earlier this month, before I saw the sponsorship announcement, I had come across an add for your product. I wish I could recall from where, but I had bookmarked it to look at later. The sponsorship announcement reminded me that I hadn't done that yet.
So, I was wondering if you could tell me, what are the benefits of your product over what I already own? How does it differ? Will Motoskiveez maybe be the answer for me, if I am a case where SitRelief provides none?
Looking at your profile, with an 1190 and a 1200 Tiger I would definitely think the ADVENTURE style is for you. Also I notice you are over in CO, we are just a little west in Park City, UT. If you ever find yourself this way give us a shout. We have an open door policy for motocyclists. My main bike is a BMW R1200GS Adv. Always looking for a reason to ride.Thanks for taking the time to answer my questions. I think you hit the nail on the head. The SitRelief shorts were originally designed for a specific medical condition and later the application was adopted to riding, without really altering the design.
For me, I found them cumbersome. Bulky padding that was uniform in width. They seemed to kind of bunch up in areas where they padding wasn't needed on the bike. Rather than provide any relief, I found they forced me to sit oddly on the bike. Rather than offer any kind of relief, they seemed to cause me lower back pain instead.
The seat on my bike is suitable for short days in the saddle, but its those 500+ days, especially strung together back to back, that begin to take a bit of a toll.
I appreciate the research that went into the different designs for specific bike types and the fact that you are a Triumph owner sure doesn't hurt
I am going to give the Adventure model a try, though I won't be able to really report until the weather gets a bit better.
