Corbin provides incredible comfort gains for your sportbike. In the front, we've leveled the rider's platform for a better seating posture that helps curb the tendency to slide towards the tank under braking. In the long run, this helps to eliminate fatigue on your wrists and knees. For added support, we've widened the seating area which disperses your weight over a greater area, eliminating hot spots. The sculpted shape of the seating relieves pressure from your tailbone and supports your body more from the sides... you won't believe the difference this will make in your bike! For ground reach, the front saddle is slightly lower than stock and is rounded at the nose area.
For your passenger, we've also created a generous, sculpted seating position. Again, this increases the area of body contact for better weight distribution and longer range comfort. Our sculpted seating posture helps your passenger stay put in the seat rather than sliding forward into you. Corbin sacrificed a little bit of the seating length in order to provide for our much desired passenger backrest system. Corbin's optional backrest installs easily into hardware built inside the saddle and locks in with a single set-screw under the seat. Of course, it's adjustable to provide a tailored fit. Adjustment is easy, simply move the backrest to the desired angle and tighten the adjustment set-screw at the top of the mounting shaft.
A variety of optional backrest models are available to suit your taste and the amount of support desired. Shown above we've used the Ovalbac model #02-SB for a good combination of clean looks and passenger support. Naturally, the backrest can be made in the same materials as the saddle for a totally integrated look. Refer to the Accessories tab for all of your passenger backrest options.
Of course, both saddles and backrest include genuine leather seating for a luxurious ride. Leather seating breathes with your body and will break in along with the foam shape to conform to your personalized fit. Shown here we've used Carbon-Fiber leather seating with Asphalt vinyl side panels for a custom contrast. Using vinyl in the sides helps to support the foam shape and keep the saddle looking sharp.
All Corbin saddles are built up on our exclusive Comfort CellŪ foam that provides a firm supportive ride. Nearly twice as dense as your stock foam, Corbin Comfort CellŪ will support your body better and longer for more time in the saddle. Over time, the saddle will break in and take on your shape for a personalized fit. Corbin's rigid Fibertech baseplate supports the foam shape and keeps the carefully engineered ergonomics intact. Fits perfect to the chassis and bodywork for a truly custom touch. Mounting brackets come pre-installed on the saddle for easy installation.
If you're looking to add a bit of storage to your bike, check out Corbin's glovebox! Mounting to the rear of the Corbin backrest in place of the finishing plate, the Glovebox provides four liters of convenient locking storage. Just perfect for maps, gloves, bottled water and cell phones. For complete information, just check out the Accessories tab and click on Glovebox!

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.
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.

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.

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.

A variety of finishing plate options are available to customize the rear. *More Info*
