Although this saddle sounds as though it is the answer to all comfort problems that riders may have experienced in the past, some customers have reported having problems with the saddle. These problems should be mentioned here as part of a balanced overview.

The first potential problem that may be experienced points to the width of the saddle. While the greater saddle width helps spread out the weight over a larger area, it also could mean that the inner parts of the legs can rub on the sides of the saddle. With such a wide saddle this can quickly cause a great deal of discomfort.

The second reported problem points to the softness of the saddle surface. This may appear to be a good thing but the problem tends to be that the body soon settles deeply into the saddle until it feels as though you are part of the saddle itself. Many people prefer to sit on top of a saddle with some support from a firm surface. Over the longer ride, any measure of firmness disappears with this saddle.

The consensus is that the Sunlite Cloud-9 Suspension Cruiser Saddle is a great saddle for shorter distance riding. For many people, this means it is a saddle that perfectly meets their riding needs.
