Leave it to the innovators at Corbin to build a seat as versatile as the four-stroke thumper itself. Our Dual Sport design combines the functionality of a motocross seat with the comfort of Corbin's ergonomic design. Works great for dirt riding, trail riding or dual sport riding. Naturally, the styling is all Corbin with a variety of custom options included.
Like all Corbin designs, 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 a lower center of gravity. 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. Or slide back to skim the front end over the whoops.
Now let's say you're on a Dual Sport ride and you've just finished taming some intense terrain... 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 8". This actually makes the foam of the stock seat crush in and applies pressure to the center of your body. The Corbin model is a full 11" and is built with denser, sculpted foam that supports your body weight over a greater area and equalizes pressure. If you consider actual seating surface, the Corbin model gives you over 200% more body contact! Long story short, greater riding comfort!
On the top, we cover it with only the highest grade of weather resistant materials for durability and long life. To add a bit of flair, we are now offering an embossed material in a variety of colors that gives the look of Carbon Fiber (we do not recommend using leather in these saddle models). The traditional Corbin tag has been replaced with a tasteful Corbin logo stitched right into the contrasting side panel. Shown here with Black Carbon-Fiber seating, Asphalt sides and Tomato Red welts.
Saddle mounts similar to stock with two bolts into the chassis. In order to provide a closer fit to the bodywork and tank, it is necessary to mount the supplied seat bracket to the bike first, then mount the seat to the bracket. Illustrated instructions can be found in the NOTES tab.
UNIQUE 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. 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
Due to the rigid nature of our seatpan, we use a single tongue in the front. Saddle is held down in back with two stock bolts into the chassis through the Corbin bracket.
Because of our close fit to the bodywork and tank, it is necessary to mount the seat bracket to the bike first, then bolt the seat to the bracket from under the fender.
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*
