Loved my Airhawk when I was motorcycling but I don't see it being something I would want on a bicycle. The airhawk has air pockets with small openings between them. The idea is to get just enough air in it to relieve the pressure points, while keeping you connected to the saddle.

On a bike where you're pedaling, I don't think the air would move around fast enough to achieve the desired result. If a saddle doesn't fit your posterior, its not likely going to get better with any add-on device.

It's all relative. Any saddle can be considered consisting of many add-on devices. Unfortunately every saddle has something which is missing compared to others since selecting the right saddle is known to be many times more individualistic than anything else such as shoes. So add-on devices help to tweak everything slightly more according to the whims of the specific time of the day.

Now after trying out this thing for the third time it has become apparent that two more air cells needed to be disabled leaving only four at the back to keep all the pressure around the sit bone region. There is still some discomfort after some time during the ride, but no hard lumps and the recovery time seems to be really quick just like after prolonged sitting in a car or any chair.

This feels like an advert and the link is one of those top ten lists made by probably some aggregator. Very odd.
