Abstract (en)

[origin: WO0224013A1] The invention relates to a seating element which can be inserted into a pair of cyclist's pants, comprising a cushion (10) which is used to for cushion a seating surface arranged in the area of the buttocks. Said seating element also comprises a shell-shaped protection element (12) for supporting the male genital region. The protection element (12) is connected to the seat cushion (10). A protective vein channel (24) is provided in the central part of the seating element, i.e. directly adjacent to the protection element (12).
