They are a suspension seat. Yes they are padded way more than stock and they do soak up the bumps. Have a strip of mesh in the bottom for draining water. Set slider works just like stock. Wife has cancer and the machine is going up for sale a little later. Center of the seat and some of the side is ostrich pattern and the rest is smooth. Black with some gray strips on the side. Will go with any color machine. Also will fit other brands. Just have to get mounting brackets for that brand from PRPVery nice, I looks like they are well padded. Why are you selling them? -- just curious. Do they soak up any of the bumps better than OEM?
