seems like you could just use armour-all on your seat if you like sliding around on it...but it might not work with leathers . .02

It would work with leather but it would feel completely out of control.

I didn't read about that seat but I would hope it has adjustable tension so, you could tailor the amount of resistance to moving on it.

[edit]: Went back and read about the seat. It seems pretty well thought out.
The idea of recoil springs helping the rider to get back in the saddle is pretty nice. They claim a 20% reduction in effort. Over the course of a race it could really help reduce fatigue in the riders legs from not having to slightly raise his to slide off but, also from getting help from the recoil system to get back on.

Might have possiblities, although I'm sure many die-hards will scoff at the whole idea.
