This special design is very similar to our Dual Sport seat designs in that it allows freedom of movement for the rider from front to back while providing significantly wider, contoured seating towards the middle and rear. This allows for aggressive riding AND comfort. As much as we hate to sound cliche'... it's Form AND Function!
Corbin's seating platform is totally neutralized to curb sliding in the saddle which eliminates fatigue over the long run. Inside the saddle we use a proprietary foam material called Comfort Cell that provides a firm, resilient ride that lasts. Developed especially for Corbin and our patented manufacturing technique, Comfort Cell can be cast to the density best suited for each saddle design. This allows us to make each saddle provide just the right amount of support... too soft and you feel like you're bouncing off the basepan, too hard and you may as well be sitting on the fender.
Casting our foam allows us to design complex shapes that conform to the contours of your body. We call this "ergonomic shaping" and it gives you more square inches of body contact for better weight dispersion. This shaping also helps to eliminate pressure points and hot spots created by flat seats and soft foam. Towards the nose we keep the shape narrow to aid ground reach.
On top we use only the highest grade of weather resistant materials for durability and long life. We dressed up this model with Carbon-Fiber style seating, asphalt vinyl side panels for contrast and silver & red embroidered Corbin logo. Cover is completely hand sewn and riveted to our rigid Fibertech basepan. Naturally, custom material selection is available at no extra charge. Saddle installs using your existing key lock and rides on rubber bumpers to protect your bodywork and chassis.
Because the Corbin basepan is not flexible like the stock unit, our saddle does not work with many of the larger capacity aftermarket fuel tanks. We have tooled up a separate version of the saddle that will work with the Clarke 4.3 gallon fuel tank and for the IMS 4.6 gallong fuel tank as they seem to be the most commonly used models for Dual Sports and Super Motos. You're probably way ahead of us on this, but if you haven't checked them out yet, you can find them here: IMS Products & Clarke.
The Corbin seat will mount in the front with a tongue under the chassis and two bolts at the rear just like stock. Saddle includes mounting brackets preinstalled.

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
