Six steps to protect your ass during cycling

Almost everyone has an uncomfortable experience in the process of riding.

The parts that touch the cushion sometimes feel uncomfortable or painful.

Fortunately, these can be avoided or mitigated through the following points.

Step 1: feel carefully: if your lower back begins to feel stiff, you can’t ignore the damage caused by the cushion.

If you think that this is just a process and you will adapt if you practice “iron fart skill” slowly, you are very wrong.

If you continue regardless of the danger signal sent by your body, it will cause more serious consequences.

Step 2: lift your ass from the cushion: even if you don’t climb the slope, standing up and leaving the cushion every 10-15 minutes will help your blood flow smoothly.

Step 3: check the position of the seat cushion: carefully and correctly adjust the vehicle, especially the height of the appropriate seat cushion often produces obvious riding feeling improvement, which can also prevent you from twisting on the seat cushion.

Step 4: wear appropriate clothes: a fit riding pants with pads will play a very good protective role.

A little skin cream can further reduce friction and play an obvious protective role.

Fifth, maintain personal hygiene: maintaining personal hygiene can prevent the occurrence of various bacterial infections.

Wear clean riding pants every time, and avoid sitting around when sweat soaks them.

Some skin creams contain antibacterial ingredients, such as extracts of various herbs.

Step 6: choose a good cushion: everyone’s hip shape is different, and no cushion can be suitable for everyone.

Don’t be silly to think that big and fat cushions are the best for your butt.

Sometimes those thin and slender very thin cushions are more comfortable.

Although over time, the cushion that has been sitting for a long time will slowly begin to deform to suit your hip shape, this is precisely because it was not suitable for your ass and is also the culprit of back and lumbosacral pain.

You must decide to experience the difference between riding pants, skin cream and even band aids in the perineum.

I tried six times on the riding platform and sat on the cushion all the time.

The stepping frequency was controlled at 90-95 / min and the power was 250 watts.

I rode until my ass hurt every time.

After two days, I’ll start riding the next time after my ass fully recovers.


No riding pants: it lasted 19 minutes and 21 seconds.

I felt uncomfortable at the beginning.

I felt very uncomfortable about 10 minutes.


Wear riding pants (normal): for 40 minutes and 22 seconds, the pad looks much better than a bargain, but the fact is that it doesn’t make any difference.

Just ride on the car, the cushion plays a good role in isolation and protection, and the cushioning effect is comfortable without overdoing.

Even after an hour and a half, I just feel very uncomfortable, and this may be caused by the previous two rides.


Cycling pants plus skin cream: apply a little skin cream on the cushion for more than 2 hours, apply it evenly, and gently sit on the cushion.

At this time, you will find that it is really a very good feeling, which can effectively avoid pain.

Reduce friction, keep comfortable and inhibit bacterial reproduction.

If you haven’t tried it yet, buy a bottle and try it.


Riding pants plus suede protective stickers: for more than 2 hours, suede protective stickers are the ultimate weapon to prevent buttock pain.

Like a huge band aid, stick it to the perineum before riding, which can reduce friction.

At first, I also doubted whether it was useful, but after trying, I was convinced.

It can be washed and reused.

It is so soft that it is even very suitable for protecting sensitive parts.


Riding pants with suede protective paste and skin cream: the ultimate combination that lasted more than 3 hours: riding pants with suede protective paste and skin cream are the most comfortable riding in my life.

After 3 hours of treadmill training, I just feel a little tired without any discomfort and pain.

I can even ride all day…
