Picked this up today for my annual summer trip to Michigan after seeing it for the first time. I like the idea of being able to inflate/deflate as you're sitting on it. I bought the propad gel seat cover years back and have never been impressed with it.

Can't give any review on it as I haven't used it yet, and probably won't until later in the summer. Just wanted to pass this on as a new option.

I have one and I like it. I use it mostly on long rides, once you set the air pressure just put it in the bottom of the tour pak and then you don't need to set the air pressure the next time you use it.

See the problem I have is that there's not that many reviews on the road Zeppelin seat pad there is a ton of reviews on The Air Hawk r seat pad the thing that I like about the road Zeppelin is while you're writing you can adjust the air and air where the Air Hawk you would have to pull over and blow up the sea pad in case you let a little too much air out the other thing is since Holly just came out with a new version I don't know what the difference is and I can't get any reviews compared to the old Zeppelin CPAP version

I finally used it for a short ride a few days ago, however I felt like it raised me up enough that I was getting serious wind/buffeting. I pulled over after a few miles and put it in the trunk, only to discover the wind was probably hurricane induced lol.....guess I'll give it another try shortly. I will say I wasn't crazy about the feeling of it or how it attaches to the seat. I thought I had it inflated pretty low but it was a rather strange sensation. I'm doing a 4,000+ mile trip in a month and debating on other options, such as a beaded option.

I've recently used the Air Hawks, both of us agree it's slightly more comfortable (without an air pump = neg. rating). Not as comfortable as what I'm looking for, but in a pinch. I guess I'll be sending the seat to Mean City Cycles http://meancitycycles.com/

My seat is already modified by mean city cycles and was the third one to be done. The first one was amazing, the second one was not good, apparently due to an employee they had at the time that wasn't doing the work to standard. This one, unfortunately, is not good either for long rides. I thought about sending it back to give them another shot but I'm not sure that I'll bother. Damn shame though, I wish I still had the first seat.

I would assume that the HD air seat isn't getting as many reviews because it cost more than the Air Hawk. I used both the Air Hawk and the HD air seat and for me the HD seat is the winner hands down. Just a side note it doesn't take much air in the seat to be comfortable and any air seat pad will raise you up a little.

Just bought an Air Hawk 14" medium seat pad for the wife. It more than doubled our riding time. I had her out for 250 miles. 4 stops. Normally. It's 100 miles. 3 stops. Was 107 bucks on Amazon. Money well spent.
