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!
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.
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.
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.
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.
Corbin backrests are designed to install and remove easily so you can use a single backrest transferred front to back as needed or get two for full time use. Just slide the backrest shaft into the hardware contained inside the saddle and lock it in place with a single safety screw.
Backrests adjust to rider profile easily without removing the rest from the seat. In some saddles we incorporate special hardware in the front position that allows the backrest to fold down to ease mounting the bike. This hardware also allows you to position the backrest fore and aft to suit your stature.
Of course, all backrests are made to coordinate with your Corbin saddle in your choice of materials. Ovalbac models also have finishing plate options for the rear to add a bit more flair. Need a little storage? Check out Corbin's new Glovebox that bolts directly up to your backrest in place of the finishing plate and adds four liters of storage!
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.
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.
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.
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.
Maximized seating platforms give the most amount of contoured support available. Usually designed with the option for an adjustable backrest in both seating positions. This model is sometimes made in a Close version for smaller riders. Notice how we take the generous seating areas and sculpt them to follow the lines of the bike for classic for AND function.
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.
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.
