Designed specially for Softails with the wide fender and the big 200 series tire on the back. Insist on a geniune Corbin saddle to improve the comfort, feel and looks of your new Harley. Our Dual Touring saddle is just what you need to maximize the long range capabilities of your Softail with enhanced comfort for two. Our ergonomically shaped seating gives you massive support for the long haul. The only reason you’ll find for stopping is the need for fuel.
Designed to work with a Corbin backrest in the rider and/or passenger seating positions. Corbin backrests are supported by internal hardware for a very clean look and simple, one-bolt installation. You can order a single backrest and transfer it front to back as needed or get two for full time use. Backrest angle adjusts to provide a personalized fit to rider posture in both positions. In the front position, our special hardware allows positioning of the backrest fore & aft for riders of different stature. This special hardware also features a fold down action to ease mounting the bike. With backrest installed, the rider bucket offers 16 inches of vertical support!
In the images above, we show two backrest models: Ovalbac model #02-SB offers excellent contoured support with a clean modern look. This design also provides a convenient hand hold for your passenger or while moving your bike around the garage. The solid model #297 has the same overall outside dimensions and contoured shape, but allows for the option of chrome studs on the rear. Both of these backrests provide the same adjustable features and are priced the same. You can review all of the backrest models Corbin offers by clicking on the “Accessories” tab.
Notice how both seating platforms are sculpted to fit the shape of the human body and seat the rider lower into the bike. This is what we call “ergonomic” design and it is one of the critical features of the Corbin saddle. Wide, dished platforms create more square inches of body contact and longer lasting support without hot spots. Lower seating position provides good ground reach and makes you feel more integrated with the bike. Inside, our exclusive Comfort Cell foam provides a firm, resilient ride that lasts. Over time, Comfort Cell will adapt to your body and provide a personalized fit for even greater comfort.
As with most Corbin saddles, this model uses genuine leather seating panels for a ride that breathes with your body. Luxurious and durable, leather will provide comfort for many years and will break in along with the foam shape for a personalized fit to your posture. Available decorated to your taste from plain to elaborate. We show it here in plain black and black with studs. For a little extra add electric heat (see below).
For those chilly morning rides we offer an option of heated rider seating. We incorporate a heater unit under the leather seating and switches on the left side of the saddle (so you can turn it on without removing your hand from the throttle). Just flip the switch and the seat will warm up and maintain temperature automatically. Corbin’s heater comes completely pre installed in the saddle and you need only integrate the included pigtail to your fuse box. Separate controls for rider and passenger provide for independant operation.
Notice how the saddle is designed to fit perfectly to the tank, chassis and fender… Corbin’s Wizards have mastered where the leather meets the metal. This kind of fit is available only in genuine Corbin saddles through our patented Integrated Molding system. This process allows us to engineer extremely tight tolerances and fit complex shapes like the beautiful, flowing HD fender. Don’t get fooled into thinking a seat designed for last year’s model is going to fit properly!
Need more options? Our #02-S model backrests have removable finishing plates on the rear available in a range of styles. The standard plate is an ABS leather look, but we can also provide one with a carbon-fiber look or primer and ready for your custom painter. For just a little extra, we can provide the finishing plate on your backrest prepainted gloss black or with chromed steel. These make a perfect finishing touch.
Installation is simple with a tongue in the front and a single bolt into your fender at the rear. For a very clean installation that requires no tools, we offer a chromed billet thumbscrew (#ACST-20). Just slide the saddle into place nose-first and tie down the rear into the stock location in your fender. If you opt for electric heat, the saddle will include a pigtail wire that integrates directly with your Harley fuse box (complete instructions included).
Specially designed to fit perfect on the new 2010 Softail models, notice how closely the Dual Touring saddle matches up to the Harley tank. We have also specially sculpted the nose of the saddle to make it narrower and allow an easier reach to the ground. Smaller riders mearly slide forward and out of the bucket slightly to have better ground reach at stop signs and in parking lots. Yet long range riding comfort is maintained with a wide, generous bucket to support your posterior.
