It took me a month of owning them, and a friend looked and pointed it out, but my 21 Freeride seat is taller than my 21 Expert seat. Honestly, I prefer the taller one. No reason to sit that low when having to sit crossing the lake to get to the mountains, and I see no benefit from the shorter one when in the mountains. I feel like I am riding a Harley with apehangers.
I like the shorter seat my Expert has. My old ass legs don't get hung up as much stepping from side to side. Really the only benefit. If I was 30 again and hopped from side to side like a rabbit I would choose the cushier seat.
Aren't there 3 different heights now?

I think my original 2017 seat was taller than these. 2021 Expert and Freeride. Same height at front, about an inch difference at the back.
