After a decade of what was arguably the finest sport touring machine ever made, Honda has raised the bar by introducing the ST 1300. Designed for a combination of long range touring and canyon carving agility, the ST will find its way into the stables of many distance riders. But what touring bike is complete without a Corbin saddle? If you want to realize the full potential of your bike, our heated Canyon Dual Sport seat is the setup for you. In fact, we offer two models of this seat to provide a perfect fit to riders of varying stature.
We've created the ultimate sport touring design for a truly luxurious ride. With features like Genuine Leather seating, Heated riding platforms and our removable passenger backrest, Corbin's ST 1300 saddle will completely change the look and feel of your bike. When we first received our ST, Mike spent a few days (rain or shine) out putting some miles on it. He found the stock seat to work well for about 50 miles before the soft foam and incorrect shaping started to get uncomfortable. This is what we call a "Showroom seat" meaning that it works well while the bike is on the showroom floor and not much further.
As always, our first order of business was to create a saddle with generously sculpted seating that conforms to the shape of your body. This sculpted shaping gives more square inches of body contact which, in turn, distributes weight better. Naturally we've constructed the seat with our exclusive Comfort Cell® foam that will provide firm support mile after mile. Our unique foam material supports your weight better and breaks in to take on a personalized shape. We've created a Standard saddle and a new Close design that provides rider seating closer to the bars with a lower overall height. See the comparison below to choose the model that is correct for you.
For an added bit of luxury on those chilly morning rides, we've added seat heaters in both the rider and passenger seating platforms. Heat is controlled by an internal thermostat and activated by a switch conveniently located in the left side panel. Flip the switch and both seating areas heat up and automatically maintain the correct preset temperature.
Both saddle models include built in hardware for a passenger backrest to add more comfort and security for your copilot. Corbin's backrest is fully adjustable to provide a tailored fit to passenger's posture and installs easily with a single bolt. Our Ovalbac model shown provides good contoured support and also makes a convenient hand hold for your passenger. Naturally it comes decorated to match your Corbin saddle for a fully integrated look. To really make your saddle combo look spectacular, you can choose from several backing plate options for your backrest. We have a coordinating Carbon-Fiber look (shown) or a standard leather look plate.
Corbin has been designing quality motorcycle seats for serious motorcycle riders for 35 years and sets the standard for comfort and style. All saddle models include genuine leather seating in choice of colors and styles (shown with smooth black leather seating and Charcoal Carbon-Fiber leather sides & welt). Our tasteful Tuck & Roll stitch pattern adds a nice look to the seat and also serves to conceal the heating units built into the saddle. Leather seating will break in along with the foam shape and provide a personalized fit to your posterior over time. Just be sure to care for it properly with a quality conditioner like our Saddle Cream.
Our Single piece saddle installs on your bike in place of the two-piece OEM unit with brackets preinstalled on the saddle. Heaters easily wire into your Honda fuse box. We found the height adjustment of the stock seat was not very functional due to the way it changed the angle of the seating and created a poor seating angle. Instead, our saddle mounts in the low position only and provides seating similar to the lowest position of the Honda seat.
To choose the correct model, it is important to understand the differences between the two seat models. The image shown here will give you an idea of the seating posture with the two different styles relative to the fuel tank.

UNIQUE TECHNOLOGY: The design and manufacture of Corbin products is so unique that Mike Corbin himself holds more than 60 United States Patents! 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. Supported by internal hardware for a very clean look. Backrests adjust to rider's profile for a tailored fit and install or remove easily as desired. A very popular option! Click the button for additional info...
ELECTRIC HEAT: As an option we can include electric heat in this saddle! This option provides a true bit of luxury for when the temperature starts to drop. Simple to install with major components pre-built into the saddle. Just wire in the included pigtail and you're ready to roll. Click the button at left for complete info...
Warning! Heater elements should never be installed in motorcycle seats used by riders that cannot sense heat.

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*
