TOMAH, Wis., April 19, 2013 /PRNewswire-iReach/ — Steve Kuhl (pronounced “cool”), creator of the Kuhl Ride bicycle seat, has kicked off his Kickstarter campaign to fund the manufacturing of this amazingly comfortable bicycle saddle.

- The amount of air you have in the seat is completely adjustable and you can change the amount of air while riding your bike.

Background on Steve Kuhl and the Kuhl Ride Bicycle Seat
Steve Kuhl is an avid bicyclist and owns his own business in Tomah, WI. Several years ago Steve became disappointed with his uncomfortable bicycle seat. He tried various seats and padded shorts, but he was dissatisfied with the level of comfort they provided. So Steve decided to build a better seat.
After four years and 6000 miles of testing and design, Steve has come up with the Kuhl Ride bicycle seat. Every test subject has told Steve it is the most comfortable bicycle seat they have ever used. The seat can be used for mountain biking, road cycling, and indoor spinning classes.
Details about the Kuhl Ride bicycle seat
Kuhl Ride’s sleek and elegant appearance subtly disguises the many technical elements that exist within the seat. To begin with the perforated multi-piece hand sewn cover is itself, designed to “breathe” and wick away perspiration from the rider. The uniquely constructed patent pending bladder is designed to function with the perforated seat cover as it sets up a venturi-effect airflow while the bike is in motion. The bladder is constructed of an extremely durable material that should last for years. The thickness of the bladder sidewalls are the result of over four years of trial and error testing to come up with the precise amount of support and flex for whatever pressure is chosen by the rider. The Kuhl Ride system also includes an important piece of patent pending technology by way of its thumb-actuated pump. The rider is able to increase or decrease the seat’s firmness and flex, on the fly, without taking his or her eyes off the road. All of this engineering is mounted on an ultra thin stainless steel plate and brings the seat’s weight in at less than 14 ounces. Kuhl Ride is designed in three configurations: “The Racer”, “The Cruiser” and “The Weekender”.
