Corbin seats are carefully designed to provide a comfortable riding position. They are firm and supportive which allows you to ride all day without fatigue unlike the stock seat.
Comfort Cell Foam retains resiliency and doesn't crush down like the stock foam so they can build a lower seating platform. This gives you better ground reach and a lower center of gravity. For the off-road enthusiast they were sure to leave enough nose to allow you to slide up the tank and get through the corners faster. Or slide back to skim the front end over the whoops.
As you're seated, the bones in your posterior that take most of your body weight are roughly seven inches apart. Your stock seat at its widest point is 8". This actually makes the foam of the stock seat crush in and applies pressure to the center of your body. The Corbin model is a full 11" and is built with denser, sculpted foam that supports your body weight over a greater area and equalizes pressure. If you consider actual seating surface, the Corbin model gives you over 200% more body contact! Long story short, greater riding comfort!
On the top, they cover it with only the highest grade of weather resistant materials for durability and long life. To add a bit of flair, they offer an embossed material in a variety of colors that gives the look of Carbon Fiber (they do not recommend using leather in these saddle models). Shown here with Black Carbon-Fiber seating, Asphalt sides and Tomato Red welts.
Saddle mounts similar to stock with two bolts into the chassis. In order to provide a closer fit to the bodywork and tank, it is necessary to mount the supplied seat bracket to the bike first, then mount the seat to the bracket. Illustrated instructions can be found here.
The default vinyl choices are black 'carbon fiber' on top and 'asphalt' on the sides, 'no welts', black logo. You can view all of the available materials and colors through the link below. If you would like your seat built with something other than the standard choices please state specifics in the comments during check out.
