    The REI Member Dividend

    The REI dividend is a unique benefit of membership in the REI co-op. It's comprised of your member refund—typically 10% back on eligible purchases—and/or your REI Visa® card rebates.

    Each March, active REI members and REI Visa cardholders who earned a rebate receive a refund in the form of an annual dividend notice.

    Only active members receive annual dividend notices. To maintain your active status as an REI member, you need to make net merchandise or shipping purchases of at least $10 per year, unless you joined that year. Member numbers are issued in one name and only that person receives the member refund. Your number can be used by others in your family, but it cannot be transferred to someone else.

    • NOW PLAYING
    • Serfas RX saddle is medically tested and proven to reduce cycling-related discomfort and numbness
    • A groove from tip to tail shifts rider's weight to inner thighs and buttocks, avoiding contact with the perineum, relieving pelvic discomfort
    • Also, the majority of rider weight is placed on the rear of the saddle, further reducing pressure against the perineal artery
    • Patented dual-density technology uses molded rubber inserts on base for shock absorption and an extra layer of Reactive Gel for added comfort
    • Hard frame provides excellent support and allows for increased ventilation
    • Men's saddle is slightly narrower than the women's, with a slightly longer nose

    by fromAdequate for reducing numbness This saddle seemed like a good idea to reduce numbness at a reasonable price, even though Serfas makes a microfiber saddle for the same price that is waterproof but not carried by REI. Comfort is a personal choice. For me the saddle was too soft and flexed too much, the nose was too wide and rubbed on the inside of my thigh. I returned it and went to my LBS and tried some saddles that they put on my bike for a test ride[...] I bought a waterproof saddle with a cut out by another manufacturer that was far more comfortable, although twice the price.

    by fromAwesome saddle! I commute to work and take the occasional 60-70 mile ride. I had an old saddle with a gel cover and had a hard time with comfort. This saddle solved my problem and now my legs wear out before my backside. This thing is great!

    by fromMost Comfortable Road Saddle Since I started riding on week-long trips in the Western States and Canada, I've tried half a dozen different saddles, and have settled on this Serfas RX as the most comfortable and best all-around for me. Sheds water (I never cover my saddle), and works best for me and my carbon road bike.

    by fromComfortable seat This seat is a dramatic improvement to the stock saddle that came with my new bike. Before purchasing this seat, it took 2-4 days to recover from the soreness of the old seat. Within 2 rides on this new seat, all soreness was gone. The only reason I gave 4 stars is because this seat is heaviest of all the other models I looked at.

    by fromDid not fit me I am a former avid cylcler and who now mostly commutes, some trail riding and some fitness 10-30 miles. I found out was too short and wide, pushing me forward on the seat. Was not able to find a SPecialized saddle that was bearable through my LBS. Tried a selle italia and fizi:k, finally found a freedom racing that is ugly but fits perfectly. Finding the right saddle is a hassle. Finally found the solution. Order at least five or six different kinds from a reputable outlet (like REI!).Carefully mount each one to bicycle using electrical tape to protect the rails, carefully saving all the packing material. Test ride each one. Remove the tape,and repackage then return all the ones that don't fit!

    by fromGreat comfort I love this seat, I've used it in mountain and hybrid bikes with great results and comfort. It last quite a while (more than a year of daily use, and I'm heavy).

    by fromBest of 5 Bike Saddles Tested My Giant FCR-1 Road Bike came with A WTB Speed Comp Saddle that I road 3500+ miles and many 100 and 60 mile rides. It was "okay" but I was looking for more comfort and a better fit. I first tested A Specialized Comp Gel and then a Tri Tip Gel, both highly recommended by salesmen at a [...] store for comfort and groin protection. Both Specialized saddles lasted 15-20 miles before the pain set in. I was a cripple after 40 miles and almost did not complete the rides with either. The Tri Tip left me with a red welt and pain for a day after. I was wearing my Pearlizumi Pro Shorts. These were the worst saddles that I ever used and the first time I was barely able to complete a 60-mile ride. When I returned the second saddle, [...] Salesmen told me that I got pain because you need to use Specialized saddles with the Specialized bike shorts that have the best padding for "their" saddles and not another brand. I moved on. Next, I tried the Selle Italia Flite Gel on a century because of its strong recommendations. It was good for 30 miles, minor discomfort set in, severe discomfort at mile 70, but I made it. Was red for a day or two and it went back to the store. I settled on this Serfas RX saddle because while it is not the most high performance saddle, it is the most comfortable I have tried. Also another guy in my bike club recently got one and said it was good. Over a 60 mile ride (my longest thus far in it), it was fine. I would definitely take it 100 next chance. I am also able to use this saddle for much shorter rides without padded pants--sometimes just spandex--no padding. You can use it with regular shorts or long pants too up to 20 miles.Lesson from all this testing and more than 30+ years of cycling: Go with your gut! and use common sense: If the seat is hard at the store--you will most likely have PAIN. Your Tush will not break in over time, and neither will the seat. If seat is soft and padded--that's the most comfortable, BUT may not be the highest performance or fastest. No pain, no gain may be the best rule--but I had so much pain with those hard saddles that I almost felt like giving up cycling, so what's the point?PS It's simple to install.
