Sport, Adventure and Touring all wrapped up in one bike… well played BMW! Although as capable and versatile as the S1000 XR may be, the stock bum padding seems only suited to the sportier end of this combination without the support needed for Asphalt Adventure or Touring. Corbin set out to fix this deficiency with our Canyon Dual Sport design.
Corbin’s high density Comfort Cell foam allows a clean profile while providing a firm supportive ride that lasts. Rider seating is ergonomically shaped to fit the curve of your body and provide better weight distribution. This also helps to eliminate the centralized pressure and “bunching” felt from the stock seat. In the nose area, we sculpt the saddle narrower to allow for ground reach.
Passenger seating area is designed with a neutralized platform to curb sliding forward in the saddle. Dished shaping provides an excellent contact patch while maintaining a clean look. This gives your passenger excellent comfort. For additional comfort and feeling of security, the Corbin saddle works with an optional removable passenger backrest. Simple to install with just a single bolt under the saddle and fully adjustable to provide a tailored fit.
We offer several backrest models to suit your taste visually and the degree of support desired. For the best combination of looks and support, we recommend the #BR model Ovalbac backrest shown. This backrest provides a generous, contoured contact patch for excellent support. Angle adjustment is simple and can be performed without removing the saddle or backrest from the bike.
Notice how close the Corbin saddle fits to the tank and sides… this kind of fit comes only from a Corbin saddle and our unique Fibertech basepan. Our rigid base material not only fits perfect to the bike, but provides a firm foundation to support the carefully designed foam shape. Corbin’s ergonomic shaping creates a visually pleasing look on the motorcycle and adds to the custom appeal.
We’ve made this seat as low as practical with a focus on rider comfort and support. This makes the Corbin model taller than the OEM unit as we have taken out the sling shaping of the stock seat. Neutralizing the seating area not only relieves pressure on a very sensitive area *ahem*, it also helps to reduce fatigue on wrists and knees.
For an added luxurious touch, this saddle is available with the option of electric seat heaters. With the flip of a conveniently located switch built into the left side of the saddle, both the rider and passenger seating platforms will heat up and maintain temperature automatically. Simple to install with just a pigtail wiring to your bike’s fusebox. All other components are built into the saddle and come preinstalled.
On top, we include genuine leather seating panels for a luxurious ride. The design shown above includes Black Natural grain leather seating with Matte Black vinyl contrasting sides with a tasteful color coordinated welt. A wide variety of material and color options are available to suit your taste. For an added custom touch, the embroidered Corbin logo in the side panel is dressed with the tri-colored bars of BMW.
We use genuine leather seating in all of our saddle models because it breathes with your body and will conform along with the foam shape during break in. This provides an added bit of luxury on those long rides. In the side panels, we use a coordinating vinyl material that will support the foam shape and keep the saddle looking sharp longer. Be sure to care for you leather saddle properly with a quality conditioner like our Saddle Cream. This will help the leather to remain supple and weather resistant while it matures gracefully.
Mounts to the motorcycle just like stock and secures with the BMW key lock system. All brackets are included and premounted on the seat so it’s ready for immediate installation.
