In the world of professional cycling, a lightweight bike seat is a necessary piece of equipment. When you have to travel as fast, comfortably and efficiently as possible, cutting down on weight is a must-have.
In the city there’s a little bit more give in terms of what a bike can and can’t have as inner-city cyclists aren’t competing in the Tour de France. Comfort is still important though and the Swedish company Ass Savers' new bike seat is the epitome of comfort and portability. The bike seat weighs in at 15 grams, which is 3 grams less than the typical and widely accepted weight for lightweight bike seats. The seats also fold away so when you’r done riding, you can just grab it off the bike, fold it up and go about your day.
