Prolonged and passive sitting at the tip of the saddle may lead to pain or numbness in the perineum. The athlete will benefit by positioning the sit bones at the width of the saddle. The key features to positioning are sit bone contact with the saddle, trunk and hamstring flexibility and the ability to perform with skill in the position of choice.

When correctly positioned, the sit bones will alternate loading with unloading on the saddle. The Sidebend Hip Hike, in the correct position, can maximize power output by increasing the effort used in the upstroke and smoothing the transition between upstroke and downstroke. In long TT events, this balanced effort can shave valuable seconds from a competitor's time.
