Our Dual Sport seat allows freedom of movement for the rider from front to back while providing significantly wider, contoured seating towards the middle and rear. This allows for aggressive riding AND comfort. As much as we hate to sound cliche’… it’s Form AND Function!
Corbin’s seating platform is neutralized to curb sliding in the saddle which eliminates fatigue over the long run. Inside the saddle we use a proprietary foam material called Comfort Cell that provides a firm, resilient ride that lasts. Developed especially for Corbin and our patented manufacturing technique, Comfort Cell can be cast to the density best suited for each saddle design. This allows us to make each saddle provide just the right amount of support… too soft and you feel like you’re bouncing off the basepan, too hard and you may as well be sitting on the fender.
Casting our foam allows us to design complex shapes that conform to the contours of your body. We call this “ergonomic shaping” and it gives you more square inches of body contact for better weight dispersion. This shaping also helps to eliminate the centralized pressure created by the narrow stock seat and soft foam as it compresses. Towards the nose we keep the shape low to aid ground reach.
On top we use only the highest grade of weather resistant materials for durability and long life. We dressed up this model with Carbon-Fiber style leather seating and asphalt vinyl side panels for contrast with a orange welt. Cover is completely hand sewn and riveted to our rigid Fibertech basepan. Naturally, custom material selection is available at no extra charge. Saddle installs like stock and rides on rubber bumpers to protect your bodywork and chassis.
We offer two models of this great saddle design; One works with the stock tank on all of the XC models listed, while the other is designed specifically for the 20 Liter Acerbis fuel tank available for the 350 and 500 models. Providing all of the same ergonomic perfection as the standard model, but we’ve modified the nose to fit the larger capacity tank. Now you’ll have all the comfort you need to go out and burn those 5 gallons!
The Corbin seat mounts in the front with a tongue and a single bolt under the fender.
