My first reaction was to check to see if the article was dated April 1st and this was a joke. Full Article here

I can't look at that and think that the assax would be comfortable in any way.

Looks like it should take batteries and be sold in Adult only stores.

I am guessing, for those riders (i.e. racers), who spend A LOT of time in the drops, this would give a little support where there is none now. Which would then take a little support off of "other" areas (maybe areas the are susceptible to going numb now and then). If it works, got to give the inventor credit for thinking outside the box.

Must be a training seat..... helps you maintain out of seat pedaling/climbing form.

Looks like the ultimate wedgie to me. I think I'll stick to more traditional seats.
