Often i slide a little to the front when lowering the speed.

In my pants , some very sensitive parts of Eddy become squeezed.

Maybe with a Airhawk, mounted on the seat, my sitposition stays in place?


Someone here with knowledge about the Airhawk?

Thanks.

I'm not sure if an Airhawk seat cushion would help stop your tackle being squeezed, they're more useful for preventing "Monkey Butt". I always ride feet forward as opposed to feet flat on the footboards, you could try that if you don't already. A piece of that non slip tray matting on your seat would also stop you sliding forward, which is the same material that's used on the base of my Airhawk cover. Some of the textile riding pants from Hein Gericke, Polo, and Louis have non slide patches on the seat.

My statement was not clear, sorry.

When slowing down the body try to move forward.
But the pants make a friction with the seat, so the body moves more to the front than the pant.( a little)
That makes the squeeze.

I am pretty sure others noticed the same event.

I hope , with the Airhawk, you sit in a valey, so the body and the pants stay on the same place;

Right?

My feet are forward, but the knees under a angle.

PS
My knowledge of Eng. language are just by pick up.

Eddy,

A Utopia back rest is a tremendous aid to riding comfort. If you ride feet forward and also use an Air Hawk you can press backward into the Utopia and easily resist the tendency to slide forward while braking.

Eddy,

I have the same problem. Placing your feet forward helps. If I stop often I have to adjust my sensitive parts too. I have converted my buttrest to a backrest and I use a cheap gel-pad and it helps too.

Your English is very good. What is your native langauge?

Eddy,

I have the AirHawk II, medium cruiser. Extremely comfortable and I use it all the time. I also have the Utopia backrest. Very nice also.

To answer your question, I am not sure these will help your situation.

Simple fix from sitting on the boys----move standard butt rest back---seat then will have you sitting downhill (to rear).

Then with feet forward press into footboards (proper way to ride anyway) when braking--- also you can push right to go right, etc. Gives good control of bike, much better than sitting on it like toliet. Be an active part of the bike/scooter.


Back rests like Utopia are heavy, the strut that holds seat up doesn't work then, they also require cutting seat cover.


Most important ( and has worked for me for over a million and a half miles) get off every hour. Summer no underwear, works, too. Winter be careful what you wear under your riding pants. Also be in shape and ride everyday.

That makes the squeeze.

The bottom of the AirHawk will not slip forward and the top of the AirHawk not as slippery as the vinyl ... so it may resolve your issue. Otherwise the other recommendation for backrest ( I also have the Utopia backrest) or buttrest->backrest with feet forward should finally resolved

It's no major problem.
And i am not talking about heavy stops.
Then, we all know the legs and arms are needed...

It' s during relax driving , with minor slow downs.
After a while i feel uncomfortable.

In fact, the real problem is , my body shoves forward in my pants.

And i hope, with the Airhawk, i will make a little valley in the AH when sit on it, because the air under me,will pushed away to rear and front.
Perhaps the body is more locked.

I have been using an AirHawk for 10,000 miles. I think it will help your situation. Not a perfect solution, but helpful. Plus, it is more comfortable the entire time you ride.

For me it has more to do with what I wear rather than anything else.
Without going into too much detail I find that wearing loose boxer-shorts or trunks which don't 'hold' my naughty bits tight as briefs (like speedo swimming-trunks) or jock-strap do.
All my riding trousers are quite baggy so, as they say, I have plenty of ball-room!
Thus, if I do slide forwards, those bits do not get crushed by my clothes.
I suspect also that the material the clothes are made from has some bearing; if the two materials, trousers and pants (briefs, shorts, thongs) are very smooth they will slide easily over each other as well as the skin.
Nylon's probably the worse.
I have cotton underwear and my riding jeans are the same - plenty of friction! Razz
