When cycling it’s the saddle that carries most of the body weight. This causes more or less pressure on the bottom. As pressure is defined by force per area, the pressure depends on the weight, on the gradient of the body’s upper part and on the size of the supporting area. Roughly estimated the saddle carries about 60% of the whole body weight. When bending the body further to the front, the pressure on the saddle is reduced, but the load on the hands  and  arms(depending on the bar type) increases.
Apart from the exact percentage of weight to be carried by the saddle it is important how that weight is distributed over the relatively small area the saddle offers. Depending on the anatomy and the seating position either the saddle’s nose or its rear part can be loaded more. To analyse this pressure distribution, pressure mapping systems are employed.
