Waterproof Bike Seats
Drain Saddle Makes Commuting a Little More Comfortable in Torrential Rain

Commuting, especially in countries with lots of rain, can be difficult for bikers who often return to damp seats, but designers have found a way to make eco-friendly cycles with the Drain Saddle so that it won’t dampen the mood—or pants.

The concept design for the frame of the waterproof bike seats, also known as Drain Saddle, is made of lightweight durable material carbon fibre. The seat itself is molded with a porous material in tubular form, which essentially drains water as it passes through the seat. For cities or countries like Japan or China where empty parking spaces are rare and have annual monsoon or typhoon seasons, the Drain Saddle is an essential item to make their daily commute a little more comfortable.
