Description

Changes the look of the motorcycle entirely, capturing the invigorating look of a vintage racebike. Corbin engineering and design experience make a ride difference you can feel. The ergonomically contoured seating position provides you with a larger area of body contact which gives better weight dispersion. This shaping also relieves centralized pressure from your tailbone and supports your weight more from the sides. Combine this with our exclusive Comfort Cell foam and it equates to longer riding time and comfort that lasts.

Notice how our ergonomic shaping provides a generous pocket that provides good lower back support. This deep, dished shaping cradles your body and gives firm support for longer riding range. Towards the front of the saddle we’ve sculpted the nose narrower to provide good reach to the pavement. Likewise, the nose of the saddle climbs gracefully up the tank slightly to curb the tendency to slide foward.

Features a fastback tail section for a very clean look that hugs the fender and looks sly. Naturally, the tail section is padded and upholstered to provide for short trip passengers, but don’t expect them to be happy back there for too long. This tail section also allowed us to build up the rider seating area a little higher which creates that nice lower back support.

Features genuine leather seating for a perch that breathes with your body and breaks in with the foam shape for a personalized fit. Choose from a variety of leather styles to customize the look. This seat uses our basic natural leather in the seating area with a white welt and tuck & roll stitch for a custom touch. Naturally we can make your saddle all plain black for a more stealthy, subtle appearance if you prefer.

Leather makes an excellent cover for a motorcycle seat because it is extremely durable and luxurious to ride on. Just be sure to care for it properly with a quality leather conditioner like our Saddle Cream. This will help your saddle to resist the elements and remain supple and nice looking. Over time your leather cover will age and develop its own unique character just like a leather jacket.

Note: These saddles fit the short wheelbase model made from `69-`73. The long wheelbase model made in the later half of 1973 accepts our /6 seat. To install, loosen both seat hinges (included) and mount the seat onto the frame pins. Then tighten the brackets securely.

Specification

Technology
The design and manufacture of Corbin products is so unique that Mike Corbin himself holds more than 60 United States Patents! From the process itself to new innovations like the Corbin Glovebox, you can count on highly functional and unique products that work. Corbin products are manufactured under one or more of the following US Patents: 6,848,156 B2; 6,729,516 B2; D 489,540S; 6,655,740 B1; 6,422,648 B1; 5,544,937; 5,608,957; 4,953,911; D545,073S & 6,971,714 B1.


Fibertech™ Basepan
A purpose built, hybrid material that provides a firm foundation to support the carefully designed ergonomics of the Corbin saddle. Provides a precision fit to every arc and contour of the machine and rides on rubber bumpers to protect your paint. We always design our basepans as flat as possible so bumps or odd shapes don’t telegraph through the foam to your body.


Comfort Cell® Foam
The heart of the Corbin saddle! Our exclusive, purpose built foam material, called Comfort Cell, was created to provide a firm, resilient ride that doesn’t break down. This means it will support you for long days on the road. Over time, Comfort Cell will break in to provide a personalized fit to your posture and even greater comfort!


Ergonomic Shaping
A major part of the design criteria of the Corbin saddle is the Ergonomic shape. This means the saddle’s foam shape is designed to emulate the curves of the human body. This provides more square inches of body contact and helps to eliminate hot spots. This shaping also neutralizes the seating platform to help curb sliding in the saddle which reduces fatigue.


Patented Manufacturing Technology
Always an innovator, Mike Corbin invented Integrated Molding technology which is now the process by which all Corbin saddles are made. This process allows extremely tight tolerances and creates a chemical bond between the foam and base material. To see what this is all about.


Genuine Leather
We use leather in all panels of the seat that contact your body. This provides a luxurious ride that breathes with your body. Leather will also break in along with the foam shape to support the personalized fit. Available in a wide range of textures and styles to suit your taste.
