Ergo Seat

Anyone get the ergo seat and if so which one did you get (low, standard, or high)?
I am trying to decide between the standard and the high seat.
Any input would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks

I went for the plus 20mm
I am only 29 inside leg
but no problems getting most of my feet on the ground
helped my bad knees and ars.
doubled my riding time before the pain sets in

I read somewhere the +20 mm Seat didnít feel that different. Do you still have the stock seat to compare?

yes i do, it does not feel like 20mm because when you sit on it it does compress more than the standard, so it does not end up being 20mm higher for the rider

Quite a lot of cash for minimal benefit then?

Nope.

Way way way more comfortable than stock, itís slightly higher but not by much.

Also not that expensive, paid nearly double for a custom gel seat for my striple which reaped about the same reward comfort wise, but looked a **** of a lot better, although the ktm seat still looks great.
