I know a couple of people who use Zacro gel covers and like them. In general, I think most people are better off getting good padded bike shorts and then they often don't need seat covers. Good luck!

Thank You So Much :)

Hi, replying as a road biker and Peloton rider :) The Peloton seat is already quite a soft seat by biking standards and the more gel or anything else you pack under your butt on a bike seat tends to create more problems including chaffing which is worse that just being a bit sore. The best seat advice I ever got and will pass on is to get a good set of compression bike shorts with a built in chamois (small pad - I know I said no more padding but this type is ok). Another biker thing, I know this is gross, is NO underwear are worn under bike shorts. They tend to bunch and also cause problems. Just get two pair of bike shorts, they dry very quickly, and wash them out after each ride. Last point, stick with a seat for at least two weeks of riding and if there is no chafing, deal with the soreness. 99% of the time it will pass as your butt gets used to this type of riding and the seat breaks in to your body. Also, make sure you are back on the seat so the bones down there come in contact with the softest part of the seat. OK, WAY too much talking about bottoms between people who have not met. Hope this helps.

My favorites are normal cycling shorts from brands like Castelli and Pearl Izumi. They're not cheap but you will appreciate having something of high quality on the Peloton as you'll be a lot more comfortable during and after. Here's one example. PEARL iZUMi Attack Short - Women's | Competitive Cyclist

You can buy them at cycling etailers like competitive cyclist, Amazon or at your local bike shop. An advantage of the bike shop is that you can see and feel them and talk to a cyclist at the shop. Depending on the Covid situation where you live you may actually be able to try them on as well.
