Corbin's seat is a complete redesign of the quad perch and we've taken a whole new approach to how your bike should ride. Our new design has taken the principal elements of the hugely popular Corbin saddle for street bikes and applied them to the off-road environment. Yeah, we know you don't spend a lot of time with your posterior planted while you're tearing it up, but when you do get the chance, you'll be glad it's there.
The first thing you'll notice is how well the Corbin saddle integrates visually with the EX... in short, it looks cool! Our seat provides a precision fit to the bodywork and installs very easily with our new key lock system. Now throw a leg over it and you'll notice a wider, more level seating platform. This shaping eliminates the centralized body pressure caused by the stock seat and makes it easier to slide forward and backward for control.
Hanging off the bike is not a problem... in fact, it works excellent. Our grippy "Black Husky" seat insert is a durable fabric material backed with rubber for comfort and water resistance. Over the edges we run our new Asphalt material to add additional grip. The wider, flat platform and sticky materials give you excellent control and help hold you body in position when you're hanging off the side.
When you get a chance to just putt it along and catch your breath, slide your body back towards the rear of the bike and you'll find a nice, wide perch. We've dished the seating in this area to conform better to the shape of your body and provide ergonomic support without hot spots. On top we offer a range of color options if you'd like to customize your ride more. As shown, the saddle is dressed with Black Husky seating, Asphalt edges, Yellow Carbon-Fiber sides and Asphalt Tail and Nose pieces. To coordinate with the Red EX, we recommend changing the side panels to our new Red Carbon Fiber. Corbin uses only the finest, most colorfast and durable vinyl materials available for our Quad and Dual Sport saddles.
Again, notice the precision fit of the Corbin basepan to the bodywork of the EX. Our patented molding and manufacturing processes allow us to create a part that fits close to the body for a very clean look. Stock nylon basepans are too flexible for this kind of fitment. Corbin's quad saddle comes with a special latch bracket that installs with just two bolts. Once the bracket is installed, your new seat will mount and remove with the built in key lock on the right side. Simple!

We always design our basepans as flat as possible so bumps or odd shapes don't telegraph through the foam to your body. Click on the button at left to learn more...
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! For the complete story just click the button.
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. In a nutshell... more comfort for a longer ride! Just click the button at left for an animation that shows how it works.
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, just click the button for More Info
KEY LOCK INSTALLATION: This saddle model uses a new mounting system designed by Corbin to allow installation and removable with a simple key lock. Once the included brackets are installed, the saddle can be removed easily by just inserting and turning the key. Need a demo? Just click the button.
Installation: Corbin's quad saddle uses a new key lock system for simple installation. All brackets and hardware are included. Locking mechanism and
mounting tabs come preinstalled on the saddle.

Corbin saddles (with very few exceptions) include Genuine Leather Seating to provide a luxurious look and feel.... don't let anybody tell you that vinyl is just as good! You wouldn't buy vinyl boots would you?
WARNING: Heater elements (when available) should never be installed in motorcycle seats that will be used by riders that cannot sense heat. This could create a hazardous condition.
Take good care of your new seat and the seat will take good care of you. Designed to help your leather saddle remain weather resistant and keeps the hide supple. This will allow the leather to break in and age gracefully. Great for boots, gloves & jackets too. Simple rub-in, buff out application. *More Info*
