Classic Dragon Saddles can eventually wear out on the bottom but it takes years. Order a new one or a pair of bench fasteners when that time approaches. You might bond one of the inserts that have grip to the bottom as a way to renew non-slip properties at no cost. They are extremely comfortable. Some have been in continuous use for over a decade. The  Sprint Saddles are less durable. The glide surface must be cared for properly. See "care instructions". The iridescent  alternatives on the home page are less slick and very durable. 

See the seat cushion photos/descriptions at "Product Information"
