A classy nostalgic look combined with excellent rider comfort and versatility. Corbin’s Classic Solo is specially designed to keep a classy looks of your Thunderbird while providing generous, ergonomically designed seating. Additionally, the Solo Saddle accepts a removable backrest for added comfort and support. Run the Solo by itself for a rugged, low look or add the passenger pillion for two-up cruising.
Accepts an optional Corbin removable backrest for added support. In the solo seat, you get a total of 16 inches of vertical support with #02-S backrest installed (shown). Corbin backrests are sculpted to fit the shape of your back and provide the maximum contact patch. Naturally they are fully adjustable to provide a tailored fit to your posture. Installation and adjustment is simple.
All Corbin saddles are designed with what we call “Ergonomic Shaping”. This means the saddle’s seating area is shaped to fit the curve of your body and provide proper weight distribution. This also gives more square inches of body contact to help eliminate hot spots and centralized pressure. Neutralized platforms help to curb sliding in the saddle and reduce rider fatigue.
For an added bit of luxury on those chilly morning rides, our Classic Solo is available with an internal seat heater. With a simple flip of the conveniently located switch, the saddle will warm up and maintain temperature automatically. Heater and controller are built inside the saddle and preinstalled. We include a wiring pigtail that integrates with your Triumph wiring for simple installation.
Inside, our exclusive Comfort Cell foam provides a firm, resilient ride that lasts. Our foam is firmer than stock so it can support your body weight for long days on the road without breaking down. Over time, Comfort Cell will break in and take on your body shape for a personalized fit to your posture. Although Corbin seats feel firm when you first ride on them, it is this firmness that supports your body and helps the saddle work properly.
Built up on a Fibertech basepan that provides a solid, non-flexible platform to support the foam shape and provide the necessary structural integrity to support our backrest system. Basepan rides on rubber bumpers to protect you paint job and gives a perfect fit to every arc and curve of the bike. Solo and pillion saddles mount simply and in the same fashion as the stock seats. For a cleaner look, we’ve made the sides of the solo saddle slightly longer to cover the mounting bolts. This are of the seat is foam only so you can pull up the edge to install the seat mounting bolts.
If you prefer a totally solo look, you can mount the Solo by itself without a passenger pad. This makes a very clean look, but keep in mind you will have to do something about the rear seat mounting holes in the fender. We’ve found that a chrome button head screw makes a nice cover and is a simple, inexpensive solution.
Both saddles and backrest are richly tailored with genuine leather seating panels. Solo and pillion come standard with our natural grain black Mercedes leather seating, coordinated side panels and a tasteful stitch pattern. Leather will provide a nice perch that breathes with your body and will break in along with the foam shape for a personalized fit.
If you’d like to add a handy bit of storage to your bike, the finishing plate on the rear of the Corbin backrest can be replaced with an optional Glovebox. Providing four liters of locking storage, the Glovebox is perfect for small travel essentials like spare gloves, cell phones, maps and bottled water. Available in plain black ABS or prepainted gloss black for a little extra. For complete details, please view the Accessory tab.
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.
