I am 6'1 going from standing to seated position for cornering was taxing on my lower body endurance, particularly riding arena cross. I ordered the seat and was skeptical upon installation... Quite frankly the seat is hideous looking. I thought i would try it and i anticipated just going back to the original seat. I was pleasantly surprise the difference it made, not only in the corners but made seat-bouncing much easier. After a couple minutes with the seat i adjusted quickly and was grease'in it! taller riders if you can get over the appearance of the seat it definitely with increase performance!
