One of the hottest trends in the industry today is the Super-Motard. The Wizards in our custom ride-in department have been making special seat models for motard conversions made from KTMs, Suzuki DRs, Honda XRs and just about anything else you can think of (and who wouldn't love a street bike with twelve inches of suspension travel anyway?) If you're about to put some street skins on your KTM and you need a seat that looks cool and feels great, we've gotcha covered.
Hooligan bikes have gotta look tough and that's half the fun of this seat model. Notice how we've tapered the rear section of the seat into the fender and color coordinated it for a totally integrated look. This "tail section" we've built up also gives you a nice bump pad to sit into and helps keep you in position on the bike. Seating platform is totally neutralized to curb sliding in the saddle which eliminates fatigue over the long run.
The other half of the equation is the legendary Corbin comfort. 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. You know we couldn't stop there, so we dressed it up in a Carbon-Fiber embossed vinyl seating and color coordinating orange tail section. Cover is completely hand sewn and riveted to our rigid Fibertech basepan. Naturally, the material selection is completely up to you even is you just want a plain black saddle... we aim to please. Saddle installs with a single bolt and rides on rubber bumpers to protect your bodywork and chassis.
Inside we use our high density Comfort CellŪ foam for firm support that won't break down while you're riding. Comfort cellŪ is one of the critical elements to Corbin's legendary saddle comfort.

This animation gives a graphic representation of how the Corbin saddle is designed to function compared to your stock seat. Over 36 years of saddle making experience goes into the production of the Corbin seat and we carefully choose the specialty materials used in their manufacture.

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.
