The Kris Holm Freeride saddles have been refined through nearly a decade of riding, balancing priorities that include strength and stiffness, anatomical support for different body types and preferences, and ergonomics for grabbing the saddle and handle during tricks.
At the heart of the saddle is the KH saddle base, engineered to properly support the sitting bones while being sufficiently narrow to avoid thigh irritation when pedalling. Stress modelling was used to achieve very high strength and stiffness at minimal weight. A rear bumper provides protection and an ergonomic front handle provides control. The entire underside perimeter of the frame, rear bumper, and front handle are rounded for comfort when gripping.
The cushy Fusion Freeride offers the most shock absorbency for rough terrain and bumps and has the deepest center cutaway. For distance and XC muni riders, an optional T-bar touring handle can be added for additional riding comfort and control.
Removable Cover ● 30mm centre cutaway to reduce pressure in critical areas ● Low profile 4mm hex bolts secure bumpers and seatpost ● Cover Design: Graphic with choice of Blue or Glossy Black accents ● Weight: 830g (±10g)

Slightly disappointed with this saddle. I bought it to replace the stock model that came fitted to my Qu-Ax 36" Muni, which was comfortable, but caused a little friction on my thighs. The Freeride saddle has a more rounded profile, which solved one problem, but the groove that runs longitudinally isn't deep enough, resulting in pressure that leads to numbness where I want it least! I have to stand up at least once every 10 minutes to restore blood flow and feeling. There is a youtube video by Terry the 'Unigeezer' in which he cuts a bigger groove. I'll give that a try before spending more money, but I can't help feeling that shouldn't be necessary. (Posted on 04/10/2016)
I own half a dozen unis and I have ridden miles on various saddles including the old Viscount, the simple Miyata, the Nimbus gel, and various incarnations of the KH saddle including the older model freeride so I can make some real comparisons. This current model of the KH Freeride saddle is a noticeable improvement on earlier models. The cut out in the foam (along the central axis) seems deeper. The use of Allen bolts (Using a hex hey rather than a spanner) is neater and tidier. The feel is of a quality saddle, well put together. I like it. I bought it specifically to go with the KH handle set, and the two work together well. (Posted on 04/10/2016)
I've had the stock Nimbus saddle for 3+ years and assumed the discomfort went with the territory of unicycling anything over a couple of miles, the Kris Holm Freeride saddle is a revelation and should be standard on all munis in my opinion. It is nicely cushioned and feels narrower between the legs. Be kind to your behind and upgrade today! (Posted on 04/10/2016)
