Corbin has made the perfect saddle for Yamaha’s latest go-anywhere, do-anything bike. Our Dual Sport saddle combines the functionality of an offroad seat with the comfort of ergonomic design. This seat works great for dirt, trail and street with cool Corbin styling to appeal to the eyes.
Like all Corbin saddles, we start by crafting a seat using our high-density Comfort Cell foam. Comfort Cell retains resiliency and doesn’t crush down like the stock foam so we can build a lower seating platform. This gives you better ground reach and balanced riding position. For the off-road enthusiast we were sure to leave enough nose to allow you to slide up the tank and get through the corners faster.
Now let’s say you’re on a Dual Sport ride and you’ve just finished a bout with a nasty stretch of trail… you have some paved miles ahead to catch your breath. Slide towards the rear of the seat and you’ll find a wider sculpted bucket shape. This area of the seat gives you more square inches of body contact and the firm support you need for amazing comfort. By the time you hit the next leg of rough stuff you’ll be well rested and ready for more.
As you’re seated, the bones in your posterior that take most of your body weight are roughly seven inches apart. Strangely enough, this is true for most adults (I’m not making this up!) Your stock seat at its widest point is about 6.5″. This actually makes the foam of the stock seat crush in and applies pressure to the center of your body. The Corbin model is much wider and is built with denser, sculpted foam that supports your body weight over a greater area and equalizes pressure.
On the top, we cover it with only the highest grade of weather resistant materials for durability and long life. On the model shown above, we used our Carbonium material in the seating with contrasting Asphalt vinyl in the side panels. The traditional Corbin tag has been replaced with a tasteful logo stitched into the side panel. Saddle installation is simple with a tongue in the front and two bolts into the saddle from under the rear fender.
