Comfort and style together in one package is what made the Corbin name famous worldwide. Delivering a quality product constructed of the finest materials available has made Corbin the number one manufacturer of motorcycle saddles for over forty years! Our Gunfighter saddle for the Gladius is a perfect example of this combination of form and function.
Up front the seating area has been ergonomically designed to distribute body weight over a greater area. This provides longer-range support and eliminates hot spots. Neutralized seating platform helps to hold you body in place and curbs sliding in the saddle. This also helps to relieve rider fatigue by taking pressure off your wrists and knees. Our exclusive Comfort Cell foam material on the inside provides a firm, resilient ride that supports your body indefinitely. Over time, Comfort Cell will break in and adapt to provide a personalized fit to your body.
For a solo look, the Gunfighter tail section is shaped to emulate the lines of the bodywork with a fastback tail section. On the inside, the tail is padded and upholstered to provide for passenger capability. Although the shaping of the tail is designed for slick looks, the Comfort Cell foam still provides a good perch for your copilot on short to medium length trips.
Bucket shaping of the front seating area gives an unprecedented amount of body support. Notice how it curves up at the back to provide support to your lower back. Towards the front of the bucket we design the saddle narrower to allow for ground reach. Smaller riders may prefer to slide forward and out of the bucket at stop signs for best ground reach.
Our Fibertech base material and patented manufacturing process allows a perfect fit to the lines of the bodywork and tank. This rigid baseplate provides the saddle with a firm foundation to support the carefully designed ergonomics of the foam. The entire seat rides on rubber bumpers to protect your paint job and mounts to your bike with the stock key lock system. Latch bracket comes pre-mounted on the saddle.
On the outside we use genuine leather seating for a luxurious ride that breathes with your body. Leather will break in along with the foam to support the personalized fit. You can order your saddle in plain black for a classic and subtle look, or order the Custom pattern shown above that includes: Shiny Black Faux-Alligator, Carbonium, Charcoal Faux-Snake & Black Asphalt at no extra charge.
Corbin's saddle mounts like stock with two tongues in the front and included latch bracket at the rear. Rear seat latch is adjustable to assure a perfect fit with your key lock system. When new, you may wish to put a washer between seat and bracket to ease locking on the bike. Remove these washers once the rubber bumpers have broken in a bit.

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
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.
