I'm the kind of person who just can't get used to a saddle chair. I've tried and it just doesn't work for me. I found this chair which offers a flat seat. Flat seats personally work better for me but the perk with this chair is that it actually moves with your body if you sit forward or sit back (yes, it has flexibility and tilts). You have the option to change the resistance to be more/less flexible as well which is awesome. I don't know what it is about the cushion but it's really comfortable and fantastic. I'd recommend this for anyone who just can't quite handle the saddle seat but would like some variety and movement in a chair. Bravo!
