Kool Back Seat

Easy Racer shows that they have 3 sizes of Koolback seats available for sale. They are currently closed for Christmas and I may have found one 3 hours away and I'm heading that way tomorrow. Does size matter with rhese seats as far as how it fits on a recumbent?

Good question, but I don't have an answer.

I must be missing something. When I looked at the Easy Racers site it appears that they list Kool Back seats specific to bike model and bike size, and seat back style.

I don't know what the differences are from size to size (i,e, L or XL) but I would guess that proper matching of the seat to the bike size affects the ergonomics.

You might try a search for more clarification on the Easy Racers Forum if you're already a registered member (registration is through the Easy Racers office), or on Bentrideronline.com.

Thanks
I'll wait for Easy Racers to reopen on Jan 3. From all I see, the size of the seat does not matter. I have a Cobra on my used GRR and I am forever sliding to one side on the seat and it's not butt slide. On my old GRR I had a Kool Back and I had no problem so I'm thinking it might be just the geometry of the seat bottom is not for me
I am a rehgistered member of the Easy Racers Forum and I did search the forum for information. Not many people posting there recently. I'm a member of Bent Riders too and searched there as well
I'm getting itchy about getting this bike back on the road so I can ride with my recumbent friends
