The Cite Gel is designed for the recreational rider using a touring or hybrid bicycle with a nearly upright riding position. The soft gel padding across the top is great for shorter rides (a few hours or less) or those with significant lower bank pain. Terry refers to this saddle as "the closest thing to a pillow." Shock absorbing elastomers molded into the saddle base create the effect of springs without the weight. Seamless, heavily contoured top with large cutaway.
