Is it just me, the lumbar support of the seat to me is great. I had back surgery two years ago which has left me with Fail Back Syndrone and dibilitating siatica down both legs. So maintaining good posture is important to minimize discomfort and pain. The firmness in the lumbar area of the seat is great. Granted no matter how firm I still can't sit for prolonged periods of time but the firmness helps to make the ride enjoyable. I've only put 18 miles on in the month I had the sxs. I hope the seat holds up as I have no intention of giving up my ride.

I think the seats are very comfortable, one gripe I have with my Rzr xp is its hard to get in and out of. The Honda P4 is easy and very comfy, the ride is also much better with the Big Horn 2.0's I put on too.

Getting in and out is a science for me.

I agree that the seats are more comfortable than I expected.One of the reasons I flipped from an ATV to the Pioneer was to lessen back strain and I think this will work just fine.

My hips and back and neck plus a laundry list of other parts constantly bother me. I was diagnosed with AS (ankylosing spondylitis) a few year ago. It's sucks. That was one of the big reasons I bought the Pioneer. Getting slammed around on my ATV as I was trying to pull a way overloaded trailer through my trails was taking a toll. I also wanted something that afforded me a little more protection (cage) in case I tried something stupid enough to end up upside down.

The pioneer seat has been fine. I can't really sit the entire time for long journeys as I need to move my hips or I can't see straight after awhile, but in no way does the Pioneer add to that discomfort over any of my other vehicles.

When I first looked at the Pioneer I thought it would have been nice if they had put bucket seats in them but after driving it for awhile I am glad they didn't. The lumbar support is perfect and in the cold weather its like having heated seats. I also like that you can bend your knees like sitting in a truck.

Oh buddy I'm sorry:( They thought that I might have AS a couple years ago. I tested positive for the HLA-B27 gene marker, but they since can't find any radiological evidence that I have it so they are still kinda scratching their heads. My SED rate and C reactive proteins are always high so I have some kind of inflammatory response going on. Anyways It's mainly my back and neck that bothers me. I assume that you know of this forum (kickas.org) there is some good info there about AS. All I can say is hang in there buddy, pain sucks for sure I'm glad your Pioneer is helping you get things done.

I was in that limbo for a little over three years of trying to figure out what it was.
We found the HLA B27 about a year in. After seeing three specialists my doctor actually pulled out this giant medical book and we started flipping through it together. That's when we did the genetic test, and initial low back hip films. It wasn't until this summer that the radiologist confirmed it.

I've tried two rounds of treatments for it, with no benefits. Slated to start a third, but the last one caused internal bleeding and well, I just needed a break from all the scary meds. So now I chew on Vicodin and oxycodone all day long...
Unfortunately mine is the super aggressive kind, iritis a lot at first and it's also been attacking my heart and intestines.

I hope when they find out what's up with you that your lucky enough to get something with a cure, or a good treatment. Feeling sick and or being in a bunch of pain every day gets old pretty fast.

I'm also lucky enough to have a leg that has been rebuilt 6 times going on 7. Oh and this separated shoulder that became a chronic condition.....

So comfortable cabs that I fit in get a big fat A+ from me!

Good luck to you too.

Those meds are scary, I assume that your talking about Humira/Remicade type stuff. Well for what its worth I feel for you and wish the the best for finding a treatment that will afford you some relief.

Wow, I debated posting this topic but after reading it I'm glad to read your posts. Good to hear comfort is good on long rides too. I would much like Moose have to get out and stretch. I hope this was therapeutic for all us who suffer.
I was interested in one with bucket seats too, while talking with my sales rep he said the Honda seat would be more comfortable for back problems. It seems he was correct.

Its a great seat for co pilots too. You can fit four wide if 75% of the passengers are under 5 feet tall. Haha

That's really cool, my grand youngins are still real small, but I predict there will be many days of fun rides ahead. I have one grandson and I went to a antique truck show and bought him a 1953 Senior peddle tractor and dump trailer. I figure it will be cool him on his and me on my 55 Farmall Cub and he's just 6 mo old. lol

It's fun to raise them and fun to play with them. I was glad it got up close to freezing today. First day it was warm enough for some outside time in weeks. SO after free play time in the snow. We took Optimus out for a drive to check on my deer stands. Everyone very much enjoyed their first snow donut. They were screaming again, again. hehehe
