Imagine the Dual Sport adventures you could have with this bike if the stock seat wasn't beating you to death! We're here to help with a seat model that offers all the comfort of Corbin's ergonomic designed combined with the functionality of a motorcross seat. Exactly what you needed to make the best of your 450X model! Corbin's saddle combines a shape suitable for aggressive riding along with comfortable ergonomic shaping for those moments you're actually planted in the saddle.
We know you have to keep your body moving to get through the corners quicker, so the shaping provides free movement from rear fender to tank. Notice how you can slide all the way up the tank to coax your bike through that sandy corner or unhindered all the way back to the fender and skim over the whoops. When the opportunity arises, just slide back into the central seating position and enjoy a wider, dished area that supports your body.
This dished shaping creates more square inches of body contact for added support and elimination of hot spots. We build it up with our exclusive Comfort Cell foam for a firm ride that stays resilient indefinately. Under that, our rigid Fibertech base material provides a firm foundation to support the foam shape and the carefully designed ergonomics. If you live where it's still legal to street register off-road bikes, imagine the Dual Sport or Super Motard you could make with a setup like this!
Foam density makes a difference: Too soft and you feel like you're bouncing off the basepan, too hard and you may as well be sitting on the fender. Our Comfort Cell® foam is cast into a shape that gives you the proper blend of resilience with long lasting support. The sculpted seating platform provides plenty of lateral support when you slide rearward and is sculpted narrower in the front for ground reach and mobility.
On top we use only the highest grade of weather resistant materials for durability and long life. The "Grabber" material shown here has been discontinued, so we recommend either black Husky or Carbon-Fiber in the seating panel for good looks and functional grip. Along the sides, our Asphalt material gives a different texture or a custom appearance while still providing plenty of grip. Naturally, the material selection is completely up to you even is you just want a plain black saddle... we aim to please. Corbin's saddle installs just like stock with brackets premounted on the seat.

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
