Another Corb-innovation! This newest version of our extremely popular Dual Touring saddle is the World’s first production Heated AND Cooled motorcycle saddle*. That’s right, 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.
Mr C picked up a cool thermal imaging device and we just couldn’t pass up the opportunity to play around with the nifty gadget. Although the color time lapse video (above) 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.
Additionally features all the same benefits as our original Dual Tour saddle with generously sculpted seating panels for maximum support. This model is specially designed to fit the 2009 and up Electra-Glide, Road Glide and Street Glide models. The lower chassis used for Harley’s 2009 and up Baggers freed us up for a new level of ergonomically designed perfection. Wide, sculpted seating positions create a larger area of contact for excellent weight distribution. Shaped like your body to eliminate pressure points and give long lasting support that will keep you in the saddle all day.
Corbin’s rigid fibertech basepan provides a perfect fit and is built low to hug the frame. This allowed us to create a foam shape that keeps you in the sweet spot which provides a better center of gravity and more positive feeling of control. Deep, supportive bucket design gives over five inches of vertical support (15″ with backrest installed). All of this adds up to a very relaxed posture and comfortable ride so you’ll be able to go out and put serious miles under the tires.
Inside, our exclusive Comfort Cell foam provides firm support that stays resilient indefinitely. We cast this special Closed Cell material nearly twice as firm as the stock foam to support your body weight. Soft foam allows your body to fall through it the longer you sit on it… once compressed, soft foam offers no resilience and you start to experience discomfort. That’s why we always say “firm is a good thing!”
Rider’s seating area is designed to work with an optional Corbin backrest for added comfort and support. Fully adjustable to fit a wide variety of statures and riding postures. Internal hardware keeps a clean look and allows for adjustment of the backrest fore – aft as well as the standard angle adjustment. Spring loaded fold down feature makes it easier to mount the bike. Works with a variety of Corbin backrest models. We recommend model #02-SB (shown) for a very good blend of form and function.
Passenger seating area works with virtually any configuration on the HD baggers. Use it with your Electra-Glide’s King Tour-Pak, Chopped Tour-Pak, Razor-Pak, with the HD detachable sissy bar system or with another Corbin removable backrest in the rear. Naturally the Corbin backrest offers an angle adjustment for tailored fit to your passenger’s profile. Simple installation allows you to use a single backrest transferred front to rear as needed or order two backrests for full time use.
When using a sissy bar or Tour Pak, we offer coordinated backrest pads to match your Corbin system. On the Tour Pak above we show our trunk armrest that provides maximum passenger support, our redesigned slim trunkrest (#502-2) and an Ovalbac Trunkrest option (#HD-503). Our Trunk Armrest offers a sculpted design that gives a large contact patch and excellent support with integrated armrests that works great on the HD King Tour Pak. Slim trunkrest has excellent, contoured support with a slick look that works great on all three models of Tour Pak. Corbin’s Ovalbac trunkrest gives more support than the slim model but provides a cleaner profile without arms. For the detachable sissy bar, we offer a contoured touring quality backrest pad that bolts up just like the stock pad or a new Armrest version for maximium passenger support. All components are covered to match your Corbin saddle system.
All components include genuine leather seating inserts for a truly luxurious ride and a beautiful twin stitch pattern. We prefer leather seating because it is durable, will breathe with your body and adapt with the foam shape as it breaks in. Vinyl side panels help to support the foam shape and keep the cover looking nice longer. A wide variety of color and texture options are available by special order at no additional charge. Heat/Cool switch is located on the left side of the saddle and uses an oversized rocker so it’s easy to operate with gloved hands.
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. The system will quickly cool the surface 10-15 degrees below ambient temperature. On the heat side we thermostatically set it to top out at approximately 110 degrees. The degree of heat/cool you experience will, of course, be influenced by the type of riding gear you wear.
Simple installation uses a tongue in the front and a single bolt into your fender at the rear. For tool free installation and a very clean look we offer a chromed billet thumbscrew for this location. Installation of your new climate controlled seat is simple as all the magic is already contained in the saddle. All you need to do is provide power via a simple to install fuse box adapter that we include.
Want to add a bit of convenient storage without installing a trunk? Corbin’s glovebox is an excellent solution for all your quick-access stuff. Simply replace the finishing plate on the #02-SB Ovalbac or #297-B backrest and you’ve just added four liters of locking storage capacity. It’s plenty of room for a couple bottles of water, cell phone, spare gloves, maps and other incidentals. Constructed of durable ABS plastic and available plain or prepainted black. Click on the Accessories tab for additional information.
If you are adding the NEW Harley-Davidson Tour Pak (released in 2014) to your late model Street Glide, then you will want to use the Dual Touring saddle designed specifically for that setup. A Heated/Cooled version of that saddle will be available soon.
* Truth be told, we didn’t scour the four corners of the Earth to confirm this, but we’re pretty sure it’s the first. There’s always a chance Tony Stark is working on something in his lab…
