I read a lot of 'It's great' and 'It stinks' about this seat. Only one way to find out the facts; I bought one. Short version: A huge improvement over the OEM stock seat. Particulars that imply themselves into the matter: I'm 5'8" (says my DL. Probably closer to 5'7" these days) 30" inseam I have an AirHawk on the seat. Seat is in the 'low' position. It is still a PITA to get latched no matter how many 'how-to's I watch. I broke my tailbone four years back. It's a problem. I used to think that soft was good in a bike seat. My dirtbike had a soft seat. I used to laugh at KTMs and their ridiculously hard seats. Wanting to try a gripper seat cover, I got a Ceet high foam and said cover. It was carved on some to fit my shortness, but was hard as a 2x4. Lo and behold...it worked great! No more monkey butt after a 65 mile day. That changed my mind about soft and it being a good thing. Some have said the AT low seat is too hard. Not enough cush. Wrong pad angles....all sorts of gripes. I found none of that to be part of my experience. I've taken as long as a 200 mile ride which included asphalt, USFS roads, and dirt with the result of NO butt pain whatsoever. I have NEVER experienced that before. It usually takes only 30 miles or so before I start switching cheeks, or dreading having to move at all. A 500 mile day is simply bad. After 200 miles on the low seat, my backside felt the same as when I started. Yes, I am a good bit closer to the ground, too. I can almost flat foot a stop....but that is with a thick soled bike boot (reax). Reach was not the reason I got the low seat, though. An added benefit I haven't totally sorted is the wind effect with the lower seat position. Several days of hundreds of miles a day on the highway on the AT will give me aching shoulders and neck. I did not get the sense that was starting to happen at only 200 miles...and it usually would have started by then with the OEM seat. At $150 or so, it is a chance well worth taking if you have any tendency toward wanting a bit lower seating position whether that interest is for foot reach or wind effect. Somewhat of an aside: I tried a fork tunnel shield. It made wind buffeting worse. I do ride with a tank bag all the time. I was concerned that a sharper knee angle would make the change from seated to standing problematic. It didn't. It's an all thumbs up for the AT low rally seat from me. ...not that what I think matters. I know better'n that. I'm just sayin' is all.
