Skwoosh - Motorcycle Gel Universal Cushion
October 7, 2010
Motorcyclists, young or old – rookies or veterans, soon learn that the riders’ rear end is the most used and abused part of the human anatomy when it comes to riding a motorcycle. Motorcycle riding is an adventure that propels the mind into altered states of euphoria and motorcycle seat comfort is taken for granted accept when riding becomes unbearable.
Sometimes, after many hours on a motorcycle, that is exactly what happens: i.e., the seat becomes unbearable!
SKWOOSH has a solution for motorcyclists not wanting to invest in a more comfortable seat…the TekPad gel cushion.
SKWOOSH is a self-proclaimed world leader in lightweight performance gel cushions and focuses on lightweight comfort, cushioning and pressure relief, which are essential to enhanced riding enjoyment over a long period or many miles. Using TekPad gel technology to cradle your weight bearing “sitz” bones helps eliminate numbness and discomfort in the lower back, legs, and butt.
The SKWOOSH TekPad comes in black and is shaped to approximate the shape of a motorcycle seat. For the motorcycle operator or pillion; throw a TekPad over the seat and snap it into place. The bottom of the cushion is made of non-skid material to hold the pad in place.
The TekPad is well made, does not take up much room and appears that it will do what it is designed to do according to manufacturer’s claims as articulated in this review.
We decided to check it out.
Position the SKWOOSH TekPad in the center of your motorcycle seat. Pass the elastic strap under the seat and snap it to the TekPad on both sides. Adjust the TekPad forward or back so the TekPad gel packs are under your “sitz” bones. Skwoosh around on the pad, so the TekPad gel gets used to your body shape.
You are now ready to ride.
How does TekPad work?
Jab it and your finger will bounce off, but gently press and it will slowly sink in, conforming to the size and shape of any object. Unlike common cushioning materials, the TekPad cushion automatically conforms to each user ensuring maximum comfort for the legs and back and reducing numbness or tingling after prolonged sitting.
The TekPad cushion really does increase comfort while riding a motorcycle.
The TekPad® gel cushion is engineered to create the best performance comfort products in the world. It is temperature stable, so it remains soft and easily conforms to bodily shape even after exposure to temperatures as low as –4 degrees F or as high as 140 degrees F. TekPad® gel cushions can be used without concern for thermal discomfort or performance even if they have been stored outdoors.
Waterproof seams mean no wet or soggy cushions or pads. Combine welded construction with high tech fabrics and the result is durability and NO MAINTENANCE.
The Universal Cushion for motorcycle operators costs $79.99 and Pillion Cushion costs $39.99. Neither of these takes up much room and comes in handy during those inevitable adventures that tax your backside.
SKWOOSH™ TekPads are guaranteed for workmanship and materials.
