I’m on a forever hunt to make my “nether regions” (as Jonathan would say) more comfortable on my rides. I’m probably more susceptible to perineal nerve pinching than the next guy. Trainer rides are the worst since I don’t have a rocker plate and the lack of movement makes the problem even worse. To be clear, this isn’t a blood flow issue - this is a nerve issue.
What have you guys found helps specifically with keeping the pressure off of your perineal nerve? I’ve found the Pro Stealth saddle, or any saddle with a large channel makes a big difference. I’m currently on the hunt for bibs/chamois that focuses on the same thing - I’m considering even trying women’s specific bibs because they seem to have more focus on channels in their chamois for a woman’s “nether regions”
Anyone else have any breakthroughs that can help? I’d love to be able to stay seated on my saddle for 30 minutes straight without going numb down there and that’s not an exaggeration. I have to stand every 10 minutes at least in order to provide some relief.
