Hi all, I was in my local dealership today and they now have red & yellow Icon's lined up beside a Classic. Just using an unscientific prod & poke test I noticed that the Classic's seat is a whole lot firmer than those on the Icon. Seeing as my 160lb (73kg) weight collapses the Icon seat after 70miles I was wondering if any Classic riders (or someone who bought a Classic seat for their Icon) finds it any more comfortable?
I like the look and more expensive feel of it anyway but if it is a bit more supportive would be a bonus!

Got my Classic 300kms ago. Back to back 50-80kms tests of Classic seat versus the Comfort Seat I ordered when I thought I was getting a Red Icon (long story) prove to me so far that the Classic Seat is best followed by the Comfort Seat. Flatter Classic Seat feels better, less point loading. Comparing original Icon Seat on test rides versus Comfort Seat proves the Comfort Seat is better. I am 85kgs but no long rides yet. Comfort Seat anybody??

I'm 75kg and I find the Classic seat just fine. In the summer I did 4 days of 350-400 mile stretches (over a long weekend), only stopping to refuel. I didn't feel there was too much of a problem.

My normal ride on a day off is between 100-150 so that's not a problem.

Have a Classic. Most I have done in a single ride is about 170mls around North York Moors. Never noticed any backside issues with the seat.
