New bike seat will give your butt wings

Pain and numbness in the butt/crotch is a common complaint among cyclists, which has led to the development of various types of saddles that are claimed to address the problem.

One of the latest, the Canadian-designed Airo Bike Seat, utilizes flexing "Wing-Springs" on either side.

The two outrigger Wing-Springs raise and support the rider's ischial tuberosities ("sit bones"), reportedly keeping the tender perineal area between them from pressing down against the grooved middle section of the saddle.

Additionally, the Wing-Springs independently pivot up and down as the rider shifts their sit-bone pressure from side to side as they pedal – this is said to reduce the pressure exerted on those areas, as compared to regular saddles that don't move in response to pressure. The springs are also claimed to help absorb road vibrations, making for a comfier ride.
