Wavesoft ribrider cushion ?

Wavesoft · The Wavesoft Ribrider Cushion

Anyone tried this one yet? Yesterday did a 60nm trip, pretty uncomfortable chop, in my 5.4 SR, started to think (again) about something better than the original jokey seat cushion....

Hmm... good if it does what it says but could be a very expensive piece of foam if it doesn't
I'd be very sceptical about the claims but maybe someone will be along to say it's the best thing ever

If you think that's expensive, the Wolf shock seats at Seaworks were 400 quid a throw for what appears to be a very similar product, i.e. a replacement cushion for a jockey seat. Maybe I should have sat on it before he told me the price

I checked the construction with to manufacturer, its not foam:
******
Yes - construction is similar to SportRider with the addition of an outer sleeve as well as different design and configuration for support straps.
******
I guess next winter will give it a try. At least the SportRider was given a positive comment here on the forum from one actually using it.
