|I've got one of those Aeron chairs that it's patterned after and it's worth every penny. Mainly due to the air circulation - it gets really hot in my apartment.
Anyway, my suspicion is that taking that Aeron mesh material and making it into a saddle is harder than it looks. The chair has a lot more area to spread your weight around. Imagine how tight the fabric would have to be to support your body weight with so little surface area. I could imagine another potential problem being surface roughness. At it's worst it could be like sitting on a cheese grater! Lastly maybe they're delaying it due to quality or durability issues.
But I hope they get it right. Could be the saddle of my dreams.
