What is the purpose of this and at what point would you use it?

To truly understand the seats I think we need to not only be able to label them (however you end up defining them) but also understand why they work and at what point you use them.


MIE- Good pics! Definitely what I call a full seat as well. What you call a "3 point" is what I've heard of as a light seat. Regardless of what we call it, I think we are discussing the same thing.

Very true gypsy, great point! I'm sitting here adjusting my seat while I sit in my recliner, and you're right. I can move my upper body forward and still have my 3 points in contact with the chair. Yet, when I lift my seat bones up and put most of my weight onto my pelvic bone, my upper body follows, or I extremely hollow out my lower back *yuck*

Speaking of which - what are the reasonings of the rider, when we see a hollowed out lower back? I do not see how this is functional at all?

Great points too Upnover! I agree, I too think we are talking about the same thing.

I would say a weak core and/or a rider who is very stiff and trying to force a position.

I think some people don't actually realize that they are hollowing out their back, or are more naturally apt to have an arch in it.
