Variations on that seat type have been around forever. I even have a picture of an antique bike on display in a museum setting with a split seat kind of like that. The thing is, I never see these seats "out in the field." Why is that?

Mostly I think they are geared toward casual riders, contrary to the marketing on the site. They're good for people who don't ride enough for their crotch and seat to "form an understanding" if you know what I mean. And, as mentioned above, are intended for an upright riding position.

Devil's advocate:
I also almost never see unicycles "out in the field" unless I've arranged to meet them. I think a seat like that might work if you have a full handlebar setup, where you're always holding onto some part of the bars. I know it wouldn't be the right shape to work for me, but seat comfort is a very personal thing, and it may work for someone else. If you try one, let us know how it's working out!
