The perfected perch! Our front and rear designs offer generous seating that fits the shape of the human body. That helps disperse your weight better and eliminates hot spots so you can ride longer in comfort. After all, that's what the GT is all about isn't it?
Inside, our exclusive Comfort Cell foam provides support that lasts. You'll feel the difference as soon as you throw a leg over the Corbin seat for the first time... Firm! This is a result of the closed cell nature of our material that gives a foundation that supports your body. Stock foam is too soft and allows you to actually compress all the air out of it resulting in a loss of resilience. This won't happen with Corbin foam.
Now, take another look at the foam shape. Notice how we eliminated that high spot in the OEM seat that hits you right in the tail bone? We call that Centralized Pressure and the cure is to shape the seat like your body. This Ergonomic shape gives more sqare inches of body contact and better weight dispersion while removing pressure from "sensitive areas" *ahem* . Pretty simple when you think about it.
For those chilly morning rides, the Corbin seat has the option of electric heat. Simple to install and operate, the seat maintains the proper temperature automatically through an integrated controller. Simply flip the conveniently located switch to low or high and enjoy the warmth.
Passenger seat is built longer to provide a larger seating area and has hardware built in to support a removable backrest. Corbin backrest installs with a single bolt and is adjustable to provide a tailored fit to your posture. Choose from a range of styles to suit your taste. Ovalbac models (like the #02-S shown) have rear finishing plate options for a custom look.
A common issue we hear about many BMW models is the ability to reach the ground. The Corbin front seat has a platform height of 31 inches which is actually a little less than BMW's Low seat (31.5 inches). However, please note that the firmer foam and more ergonomic shaping of the saddle also makes a difference in how the seat feels.
You'll notice that in order to maximize the seating area we have not made the saddle adjustable like the stock one. This also allows us to provide a better fit to the body groove and keep the nose as narrow as possible. We've tested this design with a wide range of rider heights to allow a comfortable and safe ride for a wide range of statures.
All components include genuine leather seating panels and choice of material colors and styles. Above we show the GT with our standard black Mercedes leather in the seating, Asphalt vinyl side panels for contrast and a black welt. This makes a nice subtle touch of class on all bike colors.
Simple installation uses an included bracket for the rear seat. This bracket provides the additional strength to work in the removable backrest hardware. Once the Corbin bracket is installed, the front and rear saddles will mount or remove using the stock BMW keylock.

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
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. For more information about leather seating just click away.

NOTE: Corbin front and rear saddles will not interechange with stock front and rear components.
On the late model 1300, the Corbin front seat will only mount in the LOW position and does not fit in the high position.
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*
Our most popular backrest model is the perfect blend of form and function. The size looks visually appropriate on most every seat yet is large enough to provide good, sculpted support. Works well in either the rider's or passenger's position. The standard Ovalbac is available with a range of finishing plate options to dress up the rear including chrome! *More Info*
The standard Corbin backrest for years! This model is the same size and shape as the Standard Ovalbac above, but without the hole in the middle. Provides plenty of sculpted back support without looking too big on the bike. Works in both the rider or passenger seating area on virtually all Corbin saddle models. This model also has the option of chrome studs if desired. *More Info*
Like the Standard Ovalbac show above, but with a larger contact area for added support. Works great as a passenger backrest in Dual Touring models. Because of the added width, we do not recommend this model in the front position while carrying a passenger... it may interfere with their legs. Sculpted to provide wide ergonomic support. Offers a variety of finishing plate options to customize the rear (sorry, no chrome). *More Info*
This model is specially designed to be used in the large Dual Touring seats (like HD Baggers) or in Master's Type saddles as found on the Goldwings. Sculpted for extended support both vertically and horizontally, but cut away at the bottom to provide clearance for passenger's legs. A variety of finishing plate options are available to customize the rear. *More Info*
If you want the functionality of a backrest, but also want the smallest appearance possible, this is the backrest model for you. This one is most often used as a rider's backrest in Gunfighter seat models (thus the name). Includes a variety of finishing plate options for the rear. *More Info*
All the functionality of an adjustable backrest, combined with the smallest profile possible. This model is often used as a rider's backrest in Gunfighter seat models just like the #02-G shown above. Includes genuine leather seating and color coordinating options just like our saddles *More Info*
A convenient storage solution that looks great too. Corbin's Glove Box bolts up easily to your #02-S(B) model backrest in place of the rear finishing plate to provide four liters of locking storage. Available in primer or pre-painted. Some color matches are available depending on bike make and model. Comes fully lined too! *More Info*
