Dual sculpted seating positions designed to fit the shape of human anatomy providing more square inches of support and proper weight distribution. Split cushion design separates back and posterior platforms to minimize central pressure. High density Comfort Cell foam material provides a platform firmer than stock for long lasting comfort.
Built up on our rigid Fibertech basepan reducing flex and supporting the carefully engineered ergonomics of the foam shape. Basepan also offers the strength and structural integrity necessary to support Corbin's internal backrest system. Designed to fit perfect to every groove of the BMW bodywork and rides on rubber bumpers to protect your paint.
Accepts a variety of optional backrest models to suit your taste. For the best combination of looks and functionality, we recommend the model #02-SB shown above. Corbin's backrests provide sculpted support and an extra feeling of security for your copilot. All models feature built in angle adjustment to tailor the fit to rider's posture. Backrests lock in with a single screw under the saddle and are easily angle adjusted without removing from the seat.
Corbin Canyon Dual Sport is designed as low as practical while maintaining the comfort and support needed for long range riding. Seating platforms have been neutralized to curb sliding in the saddle and reduce rider fatigue. This shape does create a platform that is higher than the BMW "Low" model seat shown in the animation above, but provides much better long term support.
Covered using genuine leather seating plaforms for a ride that breathes with your body. We suggest Corbin's naural grained Black Mercedes leather with our tasteful stitch pattern in the seating and Asphalt vinyl sides to provide a bit of contrast. This combination looks great on all bike colors and provides a nice, custom touch.
If you're looking to add a bit of storage to your R1200 R, we also offer a unique Glovebox that mounts on the Corbin #02-SB and #297-S model backrests in place of the finishing plate. Providing four liters of storage to carry all your small travel essentials like maps, cell phones, gloves and bottled water. Comes either in unfinished ABS (black) or painted gloss black for a little extra. Fully lined on the inside with weather stripping and door lock to keep your contents secure.
Saddle installs easily on your BMW and integrates with the factory key lock system. Brackets are preinstalled on the saddle so it's ready to go right out of the box. Optional backrests install with a single screw under the saddle and into the backrest shaft to lock it in place. Corbin Glovebox installs onto the back of Corbin backrests in place of the finishing plate using just two screws.

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
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.
CORBIN BACKREST SYSTEM: The first and most versatile removable backrest system available for motorcycles! Corbin's backrests provide added vertical back support and long range comfort.

Rider seating: 12.5" x 14.5" long Passenger: 11" wide x 10.5" long
Saddle mounts easily and integrates with your stock BMW key lock system. Brackets come preinstalled on the saddle so it's ready to mount right out of the box.

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.

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*
