Top 10 Best Concept 2 Seat Pads
for January 2023

A seat pad is a piece of exercise equipment that you buy for your bike or treadmill, and it's a must for indoor cycling. They're padded and cushiony, so they're comfortable enough to use for hours at a time.

In the Different Guide , we test hundreds of products each year, including exercise equipment, workout clothing, and workout accessories. For seat pads, we evaluate weight, size, and cushioning, as well as durability. We test the seat pads using the Different Guide bike, which simulates riding outdoors. We also test them in our treadmill, which simulates walking outdoors.

We test our seat pads for performance, including how comfortable they are, how durable they are, and how absorbent they are. We also evaluate how easy it is to set up, and how easy it is to clean and to care for.

We've tested more than 30 seat pads over the years, and here are the top 10 best concept 2 seat pads:
