Fire & Ice
The latest Corb-innovation featuring built in Heating AND Cooling is now available for the R1200 RT! The World's first production Heated AND Cooled motorcycle saddle. Corbin was first to bring the luxury of heated seating to your motorcycle and now we've created an option for relief of your burnin' bum during the Summer months. Like all Corbin break throughs, this system is designed for simple installation and is fully self contained in the saddle. Simplicity, Form and Function all wrapped up in one neat package.

Thermal Image Comparison
Mike picked up a cool thermal imaging device and we just couldn't pass up the opportunity to play around with it. Although the color time lapse video (HERE) is interesting to watch, this greyscale comparison actually tells the story more concisely. The two images in this comparison were shot just seven minutes apart with the first image being on "Cool" and the second image flipped to "Heat". In these images, dark is cold and white is hot... Click the thumbnail and take a peek. 

Corbin has taken the touring quality comfort to the next level with our ergonomic sculpting and wide supportive bucket shaping. Notice how the shape of the seat is lowest in the center which relives central pressure from your tailbone. This shape is contoured out to cradle your body and disperse weight over a greater area. This all adds up to comfort and support that will keep you in the saddle long enough to use up that large fuel tank! 

Naturally we have built electric seat heaters into our saddle design that integrate with the BMW control module and now also offer the Fire & Ice model as well. A conveniently located switch along the side for the passenger works just like the stock unit. Temperature is controlled and maintained just like the OEM seat to provide luxurious heat on those chilly mornings. To add a touch of class and conceal the heating pads, we use a tasteful twin stitch pattern in a tuck & roll style in the leather seating areas. Cooling on the Fire & Ice model is not effected by the handlebar control settings. 

This Corbin seat model also works with an optional removable rider backrest for added comfort and support. Sculpted to fit the shape of your back and simple to adjust with a single set screw. We offer multiple backrest models to choose from including our new "Ovalbac" series (#02-SB shown). Backrest support hardware is built into the saddle for a very clean look. 

All Corbin saddles are built up with our exclusive Comfort Cell® foam. They may feel firm at first, but they break-in to your body and provide lasting support for years... firm is a Good thing! We've also neutralized the seating posture to curb sliding in the saddle and have provided ample room for you to move fore and aft depending on your riding posture. 

Both saddle and backrest include genuine leather seating areas that conform along with the saddle for perfect break-in. We use leather in the seating and coordinated vinyl side panels to complete the custom look while keeping the saddle looking sharp and the foam shape crisp. We're bringing riders a high value by providing leather saddles at a fair price. Shown here on the blue RT with black carbon-fiber leather seating, contrasting asphalt side panels and Moto-Sport embelished Corbin logo on the side. On the Platinum Bronze we used Black natural grain leather seating, Asphalt sides and Gunmetal welts. 

For a final bit of customization, you can choose from a variety of backing plate options for your Corbin Ovalbac passenger rest. We offer a standard leather-look model or can provide a Carbon-Fiber look model at no extra charge (just be sure to specify). We also offer backing plates paintable or even prepainted gloss black for just a little extra. 

Looking to add a little bit of storage to your bike? Just bolt on Corbin's Glovebox in place of your backrest's backing plate to add four liters of convenient locking storage. Glovebox comes fully lined and weather stripped to protect your cargo and holds all your essential small items where you can get at them easily. 

Saddle installs using an integrated key lock system. Just install the supplied latch bracket on your bike and the seat will install and remove with a simple twist of a key. Corbin heated saddle uses a wiring pigtail that integrates with the OEM harness. Fire & Ice model uses two wiring pigtails (complete instructions included). The Corbin saddle is designed similar to the standard BMW seat for maximum touring support. See the comparison graphic above to see how they shape up. 

About Fire & Ice: Ever hear of the Peltier Effect? If so, you've probably already figured out the basics of how the Corbin Fire & Ice system works. With just a couple of fans and some clever application we can include both heat and cool in the same saddle without pumps, compressors or fluids. It should be noted the cooling effect is affected by ambient temperature. In our samples the room temperature was 74 degrees and it took just a few minutes to cool the seating surfaces down to a chilly 63 degrees. In our continued tests, the system quickly cooled the surface 10-15 degrees below ambient temperature. On the heat side we thermostatically set it to top out at approximately 110 degrees. 

Important note about seat heater: It has been brought to our attention that tapping the Corbin wiring pigtail into your BMW wire harness may effect your warranty. If you prefer not to use this method, you can get the BMW connectors from you local dealer and splice those to the Corbin seat heater pigtail. These BMW connectors are not included with the Corbin saddle.

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!



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!

Key Lock Installation

This saddle model uses a new mounting system designed by Corbin to allow installation and removable with a simple key lock. Once the included brackets are installed, the saddle can be removed easily by just inserting and turning the key. Need a Demo ? Just click the button.




Electric Heat

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.

Corbin dual saddle installs using an integrated key lock system. We include all brackets needed to mount saddle.


IMPORTANT! It has been brought to our attention that tapping the Corbin heater pigtail into the BMW wiring harness may effect your warranty. If you would rather obtain BMW connectors to plug into your stock harness, you can ask your dealer for the following two part numbers: #61127688145 & #61127688147. These connectors can be spliced to the Corbin pigtail and can then be plugged in like the OEM seat.


Fire & Ice The cooling system on the Fire & Ice model uses a separate 12v power lead supplied with the saddle. This lead taps into an existing fuse circuit on the bike. Please read "Operational Notes" in the description tab to understand fully how the heaters & cooler will function on your motorcycle.



Corbin saddles (with very few exceptions) include Genuine Leather Seating to provide a luxurious look and feel.... don't let anybody tell you that vinyl is just as good! You wouldn't buy vinyl boots would you?



WARNING: Heater elements (when available) should never be installed in motorcycle seats that will be used by riders that cannot sense heat. This could create a hazardous condition.
