Out of the box
Your new Corbin saddle is going to be different from your stock seat. Here's some common information you may find interesting and will give you an idea of what to expect from your investment.
It feels heavier than stock, is that right?
It most likely will be. This is for several reasons, first our Fibertech® basepan is thicker and denser than the soft polypropylene one. Also, there may be backrest hardware built inside. Naturally our foam weighs more too, but we'll talk about that a little later.
The basepan has a different shape, is this going to fit ok?
Our Fibertech® basepan probably has an entirely different shape than stock. That's ok, it's going to install just fine. Notice how it is designed to wrap over frame tubes and mold into the shape of the motorcycle. Our pan rides on small rubber bumpers, so don't worry about your paint (just clean the bumpers once in awhile). Take a good look at the line of the seat pan... its going to fit the shape of your bike a LOT better isn't it?
Is this whole seat leather?
Take a look at the topside. Your new seat is hand tailored and most likely has genuine leather seating inserts. We use leather where it contacts your body for maximum comfort and vinyl on the sides to support the foam. Why? Vinyl doesn't stretch like leather does, so it provides good support to the foam shape. Also, side panels are susceptible to stress marks that vinyl resists. This gives maximum durability and the comfort of genuine leather.
Great, I can't wait to throw a leg over it!
Wait a sec, don't sit on it yet! Before you plant your tush, you HAVE to install it or risk damaging the seat edge. You'll notice installation is similar to stock, but may not be identical. You may need to transfer brackets from your stock seat. Because our basepan is rigid some don't require ALL of the same mounting points. In some cases installation may be slightly different than stock, but the principal will always be the same. Question? Just call us.
It's a little difficult to get the seat to latch, what's up?
We design our seats with a much tighter tolerance and closer fit to your bodywork than stock. This makes the seat fit the body groove better and looks great once installed. Usually the first couple of installations can be slightly sticky, but when the rubber bumpers break in, it'll be a snap. If the seat won't latch, it's probably because of the new bumpers... give it a smack with the ball of your hand, it'll latch.
Is it supposed to be this Firm?
I know you're wondering how this firm foam is going to work out. Well, consider the ergonomic shaping of the seat. This, combined with its firmness will create better weight dispersion to eliminate hot spots. After roughly 1,500 miles, Comfort Cell® will break-in and take on your shape which creates even better weight distribution. Notice also how the shape is designed for maximum support with your feet on the pegs, not the ground. There's only one way to know how well this system works... Get out there and rack up some miles!

You don't normally associate Corbin with off road bikes, do you!? We've taken the Corbin design principal and applied it to off road machines. Designed to provide more square inches of body contact laterally while still allowing freedom of body movement forward and rearward. Now available for select quad models too.

Fast Gun seat is made for the sporty-slo look. Similar to our Gunfighter with a nice sculpted seating platform in the front and a fender hugging tail in the rear. Difference on this model is that th etail is cut very short and molds straight back to the fender from the front seating area. A more model look than the Classic Solo.
Another offspring of the famous Corbin Gunfighter saddle. This design takes the fastback solo design to a new low... Low Profile that is! Built very sly across the fender with enough support up front for short to mid range riding. You can carry a passenger, but they're not going to like it for very long.
An evolution of the classic Gunfighter. This one features a sculpted tail section that comes to a point over the fender for a more radical look. As such, don't expect a passenger to be happy on this one. Ergonomic shaping up front gives plenty of comfort and support. Some Stinger saddles accept an optional rider backrest.
The original Corbin Gunfighter as developed by Mike back in 1982... often imitated, but never duplicated. The deceptively simple lines are carefully designed to contour the fender and follow the unique lines of each motorcycle. Ergonomically developed seating in front makes it primarily a solo seat, but it can carry passengers on the padded tail. Some models accept a removable rider backrest.
Sportbike's don't have a lot of room to work, so the right design is critical. We sculpt the seating to provide more square inches of body contact and neutralize the platform to curb sliding forward under braking. Our use of high density Comfort Cell foam keeps a slick profile while providing firm support and sport touring range.
This model is specially made to provide the look made popular on the British racing bikes back in the 1970's. The solo design gives excellent comfort with a sleek tail that flows back to the fender. Perfect for the retro bikes like the Triumph Bonneville pictured here. Color coordination is always included at no extra charge.
A vintage, nostalgic look for your cruiser with options for passenger accomodations. Classic Solo is often made available in a Close version too for riders with reach issues. Wide, sculpted seating for excellent comfort and support. Many offer options like removable backrests and electric heat.
Rumble seat is a patented Corbin design. Inside the saddle is a complete, convertible sissy bar system... this provides cool solo looks when folded down yet gives generous passenger seating, complete with backrest, when flipped up. Comfortable, versatile and a killer look. Many offer the option of electric seat heater.
Designed in much the same way as the Gunfighter with the addition of a sculpted passenger seating area. Contoured to provide ergonomic support and excellent comfort. Designed to follow the contours of each bike for clean looks. Many models offer the option of a removable passenger backrest. Perfect for sport touring.
Close saddles are a variation on the standard Corbin design that offers seating closer to the bars with a lower seat height and narrow nose for ground reach. Depending on the application we sometimes make CLOSE versions of Classic Solos, Gunfighters and Dual Tour models.

OK, this model is the same as a Gunfighter & Lady so we'll just copy the text over from that one...

Designed to follow the contours of each bike for clean looks. Many models offer the option of a removable passenger backrest. Perfect for sport touring.
As the name implies, this is a two up versino of the Corbin Gunfighter. We keep the lines tight and follow the contours of teh bike for a totally integrated look. Instead of the fastback tail, this model has a nice contoured passenger platform. Many models accept a removable passenger backrest. This model is an excellent blend of form and function.
A cool, low profile look for your ride with the ability to carry a passenger. Keeps the nostalgic look of your cruiser while providing good short to medium range comfort. Corbin's high density Comfort Cell foam and carefully designed ergonomics give lasting support.
Smuggler provides a clean cowling look combined with convenient locking storage. Part of Corbin's modular seating system that provides versatility through a variety of seating and storage components. Capacity varies by application but is generally large enough for bottled water, cell phones, spare gloves and other essentials.
This is what a Gunfighter looks like when you take the classic fastback look and design it for a sportbike. Carefully designed to follow the unique contours of each motorcycle and give the look of a race cowling. Ergonomically engineeded seating provides excellent comfort with short trip passenger capability.
Want your bike to look tough? This seat model is just for you, providing that bad-to-the-bone, barely there look. Even with the slick, low profile, you'll be amazed at how much support you get from the sculpted seating and high density foam.
