I grabbed the new product when I walked out the door for my latest cross-country ride. Five hours down the road the AMS pad was actually hurting my hiney more than helping it. For one thing, the "Standard" model I tested was simply too small to do its job, and the thick edges (about one inch) are extremely uncomfortable on the inner thighs. There is a "Jumbo" size, but I'm wary since the regular pad wasn't even wide enough for my skinny butt. The gel feels heavy yet pliable when you squeeze it with your hands, but honestly, it felt like a brick under my bum after a bit and I was happier in the stock seat.
