Corbin Motorcycle Seats
Motorcycle enthusiasts understand just how important the saddle of their bike is to provide both comfort and support while riding. Developed in the late 1960s, the Corbin motorcycle seat - or saddle, as it is properly known - is preferred by bikers around the world for the comfort, durability, postural support, and style. There are many factors to consider when purchasing a Corbin saddle for your motorcycle to get an optimum fit and experience.What cushioning material do Corbin custom seats use?
Corbin seats use patented Comfort Cell foam with a density of 7 pounds, which is higher than most other seats. A seat that needs replaced will have lost the cushioning and leave you with the sensation of sitting on a hard seat. After some time of use, the foam in a low density seat will fail to offer you proper postural support as well as create unwanted pressure points to areas of your body that are in contact with the stock seat.
The higher density of the Comfort Cell foam used in these models not only retains its supportive qualities, it also breaks in to your weight and position during the first two thousand miles of riding and, with the memory foam component of the Comfort Cell foam, allows it to mold to a custom shape for your distinct seated posture and weight.What materials are used to make the cover?
The cover can be customized to your preferences with a variety of material options as well as appearances. Common cover materials include:
- Leather is the preferred cover material of most riders due to its ability to breathe. This natural material allows air flow which cools during hotter weather and warms during colder weather. Leather covers should be cared for and conditioned with an approved silicone-based conditioning cream to keep the material supple.
- Vinyl is often chosen by riders who want a water resistant cover. It also offers a wider range of custom colors and designs. To create a pathway for air to move through the cover to disperse heat, consider woven vinyl covers.
- Velour is a plush material that offers cooling comfort for long-haul travel. It requires protection from water and weather with a heavy treatment of Scotchguard.
Corbin seats are factory made to fit a wide variety of different Harley makes and models. It is important to check the make and model of yours and verify that the seat you are interested in will fit your Harley-Davidson.
