FOR WEEKEND RIDERS

Instead of isolating the sit bones, the RL distributes pressure evenly across a broad area – choose one of three sizes to dial in the width and curvature to your own anatomy. Once we set it right, the seat was incredibly comfy during test rides in Belgium's hilly Ardennes region. It's a great seat, with one caveat: If your riding position is extremely hunched, look elsewhere. [$120; bontrager.com]
