Front & Rear saddles for 2007-2008 H-D Nightrod & Nightrod Special
Touring probably wasn't even a consideration when you got your V-Rod was it? Fortunately, Corbin has designed a seating solution to provide exactly that. Our deep, supportive bucket is dished out to fit your body's shape to eliminate hot spots and pressure points. This also creates more square inches of body contact for increased weight distribution. Add another nine inches of vertical back support via the Corbin removable backrest and you'll be ready to take on the baggers.
Naturally we thought about your copilot too. Notice how we've built a shape that fits up perfectly to the V-Rod fender, then flares out to provide wider seating. The flowing shape of the seat tapers back to fender width towards the rear to keep nice visuals. Of course we've ergonomically dished the seating platform here to give your passenger better weight distribution and eliminate centralized pressure. The Corbin backrest works here as well... and since it is fully adjustable, you can order a single backrest that you transfer back and forth or get two for full time use.
Corbin backrests are available in different styles to suit your taste and are fully adjustable to provide tailored support. For the best combination of form and function we recommend the Ovalbac model #02-S as shown here. The Ovalbac backrest is sculpted to fit your body shape and also features finishing plate options for a bit more custom look. Comes standard with an ABS plate in a leather look. For just a little extra we can provide one painted gloss black or a chromed steel model that goes nicely with the other chrome bits.
Corbin’s Front and Rear saddle comes in two pieces so it mounts like the stock seat and hinges to provide access to your fuel tank. Because we have radically redesigned the way the saddle fits to the fender, these pieces do not integrate with the OEM front or rear seats. As such, both pieces are included and sold as a single part number.
We build up the saddles and backrest with our exclusive Comfort Cell® foam for a firm supportive ride that lasts. Genuine leather seating is included in your choice of styles. Leather provides a nice breathable perch that will break in with your foam shape for a personalized fit. Shown on this page we have a standard Black leather model and one featuring Charcoal Faux-Snakeskin seating for a bit of a custom touch.
Remember, leather has very unique characteristics that help it remain the finest material known for building comfortable saddles. Leather is a treated organic material that will breathe with your body and adapt to your body shape. Leather actually works with your body by stretching, conforming and enriching comfort. Leather saddles will start to show their own character with time and use. You can help your leather saddle by treating and protecting with Corbin Saddle Cream when cleaning your motorcycle. Your Corbin leather saddle will serve you best when cared for properly.

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!

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
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. Click on the button at left to learn more...
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.

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*
