Better weight distribution
"Ergonomic" is the applied science of equipment design intended to reduce operator fatigue and discomfort. Also called biotechnology, human engineering or human factors engineering. What it means is that the product was designed to work with the human body. This is a key factor in how a Corbin saddle functions.
Notice how our saddles are sculpted and shaped to fit the human body? That's what we're talking about. This gives more square inches of body contact which disperses your weight over a greater area. Since it matches the curve of your body, it also eliminates hot spots and centralized pressure on your spine.
In order to manufacture seats this way, it requires special materials and manufacturing processes. Over the years we've experimented with many different materials, but in the end wound up developing our own. The process itself, called Integrated Molding, was also invented by Mike Corbin and was awarded a United States patent.
Naturally we're always on the lookout for new materials and processes. What you find today is the product of nearly four decades of relentless product development. Because of this, Corbin Saddles are commonly considered the finest motorcycle seat in the world.
