Recumbent bicycles

01 Ligfiets 870x380 b61f84979eWelcome to the best designed cushion for outdoor use; a cushion you can actually leave outside. Ventisit is the "world's best ventilating cushion" and was originally developed to combat excessive perspiration while riding recumbent bicycles.

The Ventisit cushions/seat pads are made with a three-dimensional knitted polyester yarn. The resulting open structure provides optimal ventilation and comfort with a clearly evident yet not too soft suspension thus offering a comfortable and secure seat.

The product is extremely durable, does not absorb moisture, is UV insensitive, odour free, colour-fast (only available in black) and will remain in good condition even after years of use. It is also very easy to clean.

One of Ventisit's first applications were cushions/seat pads made for recumbent bicycles. The cushions used by recumbent manufacturers are often comfortable but provide no ventilation thus resulting in excessive perspiration, even on a leisurely ride. By replacing the original cushion with a Ventisit, this problem is solved immediately.

A Ventisit cushion ensures a dry, comfortable and secure seat, which is a blessing for your back!

More and more manufacturers supply the Ventisit as standard or optional with their bikes so make sure you ask for it. The Ventisit is available for almost every model of recumbent bicycle!

If you cannot find your model/size, please feel free to contact us. We are also specialized in custom made cushions.


As a result of the open structure of the Ventisit, there is a layer of air between your back and the seat of your recumbent bicycle.

For optimal ventilation the Ventisit must not be covered. It is best if the Ventisit is slightly longer and/or bigger than the seat and that the sides are not covered by materials and/or clothes. Openings in the seat or a mesh seat will increase the ventilation capacity even further.
