Corbin offers two versions of our Classic solo seat and a comfortable pillion pad option for your passenger. The uniquely styled Classic Solo looks excellent while providing an extraordinary amount of rider comfort. Corbin's seating platform conforms to the shape of your body for support and more square inches of body contact. This is one of the secrets of long range comfort and is a staple of Corbin design. For added back support, our solo saddles accept an optional rider's backrest that provides an additional nine inches of vertical support.
Got reach issues on your Fat Bob? We also make a "Close" version of the Classic solo that provides seating closer to the bars for an easier reach. We've also made the nose a little narrower to allow for easier ground reach. To figure out which design is best for you, just follow these simple steps: Sit on the motorcycle in your regular riding posture and have a friend measure from the threaded hole in your fender to the area where you are seated. Now compare this measurement: 14.5 inches use our Classic Solo, 16 inches use our Close Solo.
Both Classic solo and Close solo accept a removable rider's backrest for added support. Our backrest installs easily into hardware concealed inside the saddle for a very clean look. In order to fit a wide range of riders, it is fully angle adjustable. Just install the backrest into the saddle, lock it in place with a single setscrew and adjust the backrest angle to suit. A variety of backrest styles are available to suit your taste and the amount of support desired (#02-S shown).
For maximum versatility we've designed the Corbin solo saddles to work with a passenger pillion seat. Like the solo saddle, our passenger seat is designed for better weight distribution and long range support. It is built with our exclusive high-density Comfort Cell® foam to provide firm support that lasts. Our pillion comes decorated in your choice of leather styles to coordinate with your Corbin solo. Installation is simple with all required hardware included. Passenger pillion works with a variety of H-D accessories and options like the "detachable" sissy bar.
For an added bit of luxury, both the Classic Solo saddle and Close Solo have the option of electric heated seating. You'll be amazed how a heated seat can raise your core body temperature during one of those chilly morning rides. This system easily wires directly to your Harley's fusebox and provides two levels of heat with the flip of a switch. Heater unit and automated controller are built into the saddle and come preinstalled. Two-position switch is conveniently located on the left side of the seat.
Shaping of the Classic Solo and Touring Pillion is designed to emulate the contour of your body. This gives excellent support for longer-range comfort. Our neutralized seating also helps to curb sliding in the saddle that greatly reduces rider fatigue. Inside, the saddle is built up with our exclusive Comfort Cell® foam for a firm, supportive ride that lasts. Corbin saddles feel firm when you first ride on them, but this firmness is what supports your body and maintains the correct shape. Over time, Comfort Cell® will break in and provide a personalized fit to your body for even greater comfort.
Saddles and backrests include genuine leather seating panels for a luxurious perch that breathes with your body. Above we used out standard natural grain leather in the seating with a Black Faux-Ostrich stripe for accent. This can also be ordered with either Grey Faux-Snakeskin stripe or plain black stripe. In the side panels we use a coordinating vinyl material to keep the saddle looking sharp longer and support the foam shape. We also include the option of chrome studs at no additional charge (be sure to specify when ordering). Leather seating will perform for years and add value to your Corbin investment. Over time it will develop its own unique character just like your leather jacket. Be sure to care for it properly with a quality conditioner like Corbin's Saddle Cream to keep the hide supple and weather resistant.

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.

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.

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.

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.
