Classic Solo saddle for 2004 - 2012 Triumph Rocket III
The uniquely styled Classic Solo looks excellent on your Rocket III while providing an extraordinary amount of rider comfort. Notice how the sculpting of Corbin's seating platform conforms to the shape of your body for better support and more square inches of body contact. This is one of the secrets of long range comfort and is a staple of Corbin design. For added back support it accepts an optional rider's backrest that provides an additional nine inches of vertical support. For maximum versatility, Corbin's Classic solo will also mount in conjunction with your stock passenger seat and optional sissy bar / luggage rack.
Our removable rider backrest installs easily into hardware concealed inside the saddle for a very clean look. In order to fit a wide range of Rocketeers, it can be installed in two different positions and is fully angle adjustable. Average riders will want to install the backrest in the lower position, but taller riders can change the set screw location under the seat which moves the backrest up and rearward roughly 3/4 inch. Regardless of the mounted position, the backrest adjusts easily to your posture with a conveniently located set screw at the rear of the backrest.
For maximum versatility we've designed the Corbin components to interchange with the Triumph pieces. This also allows you to vary the look of your bike depending on your current riding needs. Install the Classic Solo by itself for a very clean solo look or add the Corbin backrest for touring quality support. Need to carry a passenger? No problem, just remove the solo seat, install your stock passenger pillion and remount the Corbin solo. Installation and removal is simple and uses the Triumph key lock system. Although the stock passenger seat is vinyl, the Corbin leather saddle works very well with it visually.
Notice how the shaping is designed to emulate the contour of your body. This gives excellent support for longer range comfort. Our neutralized seating also helps to curb sliding in the saddle which greatly reduces rider fatigue. Inside, the saddle is built up with our exclusive Comfort Cell® foam for a firm, supportive ride that lasts. Corbin saddles feel firm when you first ride on them, but this firmness is what supports your body and maintains the correct shape. Over time, Comfort Cell® will break in and provide a personalized fit to your body for even greater comfort.
Corbin's Ovalbac series backrests come covered to match your saddle, but also offer the option of custom finishing plates on the rear. On this page we've used our chrome back plate to coordinate with the look of the bike. Notice how well in integrates visually with the Rocket III and matches up to the injector cover and other nice chrome tidbits. Backrests come standard with an ABS leather look backing plate but you can choose an aluminum look, carbon-fiber look or even a paintable model at no added charge. For a little extra we offer pre-painted gloss black or the chromed steel model shown.
Saddle and backrest include genuine leather seating panels in your choice of styles. Leather provides a luxurious perch that breathes with your body enhancing comfort value. Leather will also break in along with the foam shape in support of the personalized fit. In the side panels we use a coordinating vinyl material to keep the saddle looking sharp longer and support the foam shape.
Leather seating will perform well for many years and add value to your Corbin investment. Over time it will develop its own unique character just like your leather jacket. Be sure to care for it properly with a quality conditioner like Corbin's Saddle Cream to keep the hide supple and weather resistant. This will assure your new saddle provides a long service life and remains looking nice. Beware of products that contain petroleum or kerosene as they will damage the hide and shorten its lifespan.

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.

Rider seating: 14.5" wide x 15" long Rider back support w/ #02-S: 12" - 13" Approx. seat height: 27"

Rider seating: 14.5" wide x 15" long Rider back support w/ #02-S: 12" - 13" Approx. seat height: 27"
Installation: Installation of the Corbin Classic Solo saddle is simple and works on your stock Triumph key lock system. Mounting brackets come premounted on the seat so you're ready to roll right out of the box.
Simply remove your stock seat and slide the Corbin saddle into its place. Locate the tongue in the front of the saddle into the bracket on your frame and lower the latching pin into place in the Triumph bracket. Notice our bracket is designed with a double latch, so listen for TWO clicks.
To adjust the position of the Corbin backrest, just insert the backrest shaft into the hardware and align the threaded hole in the shaft with either of the two openings in the Corbin basepan. The hole closer to the top of the saddle will move the backrest up and rearward roughly 3/4 inches. Now tighten the safety screw securely. We also recommend the use of a light grip threadlock material like Loctite Blue in this instance.
To ease installation until the rubber bumpers on the basepan break in, it may be necessary to add a couple washers between the Corbin basepan and latch pin.
We recommend removing the seat from the bike when washing. In the case of the Rocket III, remember to cover your airbox when doing this to stop water from getting in!
Take good care of your new seat and the seat will take good care of you. Designed to help your leather saddle remain weather resistant and keeps the hide supple. 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*
