We’ve taken comfort to the next level with our ergonomic sculpting and wide supportive bucket shaping. Notice how the shape of the seat is lowest in the center which relives central pressure from your tailbone. This shape is contoured out to cradle your body and disperse weight over a greater area. This all adds up to comfort and support that will keep you in the saddle long enough to use up that big fuel tank!
Naturally we have built electric seat heaters into our saddle design that integrate with the BMW control module. A conveniently located switch along the side for the passenger works just like the stock unit. Temperature is controlled and maintained just like the OEM seat to provide luxurious heat on those chilly mornings. To add a touch of class and conceal the heating pads, we use a tasteful Stealth Stitch in the leather seating areas.
This Corbin seat model also works with an optional removable rider backrest for added comfort and support. Sculpted to fit the shape of your back and simple to adjust with a single set screw. We offer multiple backrest models to choose from including our new “Ovalbac” series (#02-SB shown). Backrest support hardware is built into the saddle for a very clean look.
All Corbin saddles are built up with our exclusive Comfort Cell® foam. They may feel firm at first, but they break-in to your body and provide lasting support for years… firm is a Good thing! We’ve also neutralized the seating posture to curb sliding in the saddle and have provided ample room for you to move fore and aft depending on your riding posture.
Both saddle and backrest include genuine leather seating areas that conform along with the saddle for perfect break-in. We use leather in the seating and coordinated vinyl side panels to complete the custom look while keeping the saddle looking sharp and the foam shape crisp. We’re bringing riders a high value by providing leather saddles at a fair price. Shown here with a new material in the side panels that we’ve added to coordinate with the BMW K1600 Exclusive, we call it Medium Stone. This material is similar in tone to the BMW, but does not have the “pearl” look to it.
For a final bit of customization, you can choose from a variety of backing plate options for your Corbin Ovalbac passenger rest. We offer a standard leather-look model or can provide a Carbon-Fiber look model at no extra charge (just be sure to specify). We also offer backing plates paintable or even prepainted gloss black for just a little extra.
Saddle installs using an integrated key lock system. Just install the supplied latch bracket on your bike and the seat will install and remove with a simple twist of a key. Corbin heaters use wiring pigtail that integrates with the OEM harness. The Corbin saddle height is designed similar to the standard BMW seat for maximum touring support.
This saddle cover has been updated to use our new backrest hardware cover with the sliding door as shown here. To install the backrest, just slide the cover over to the side. When the backrest is not needed, just slide it closed. It doesn’t get easier than that! Click image for details.
