Description

There is no doubt that when it comes to designing sexy visuals, Ducati is up to the task. Unfortunately, the awe inspiring looks don’t usually equate to a comfortable ride. That’s where Corbin comes in.

We’ve engineered a front saddle with a sleek, low profile and a dished shape for better weight distribution. Designed to provide the right blend of comfort and slick styling with high density Comfort Cell foam that supports your body. Corbin’s basepan molds perfectly to the bodywork for a custom fit.

So why is there a hole in it? We’ve never been fond of having to fold back a seat to reach installation bolts. This removes part of the basepan which would allow the seat to flex (that’s bad!) Instead, we built in a key lock system to this model that allows simple on & off with a twist of the wrist. Just install our latch bracket to your chassis in stock bolt locations and the saddle will lock into place easily. Includes all brackets and two keys. Notice key-lock placement is low and in a “negative” area where your body won’t contact it.

Neutralized seating posture helps to reduce the tendency to slide forward in the saddle while on the brakes. This will enhance your riding range by reducing strain on your wrists and knees. Corbin saddles are designed to help hold you in the sweet-spot on the bike but still allows for a range of movement for more spirited riding styles. Notice the ergonomic dish shaping of the seat. This provides you more square inches of body contact and better weight dispersion.

We’ve greatly enhanced comfort by building the saddle up with our high density Comfort Cell foam, but kept the racetrack styling and fit to tail section. Our exclusive high density foam material allows us to build a seating platform that provides good support even with a low profile appearance.

Saddle includes leather seating panels along with a wide range of decorating options (shown here with Carbon-Fiber leather seating and Asphalt vinyl sides). Our leather seating provides a unique look, excellent comfort and will also break in along with your foam shape to give you a personalized fit over time. Coordinating vinyl sides keep the foam shape tight and the saddle looking sharp longer.

Corbin’s patented manufacturing process allows us to create a shape that fits perfectly and contours every arc and curve of the tank and tail section. Our Fibertech basepan provides a rigid foundation that supports the foam shape to assure the carefully crafted ergonomics remain intact. Underneath, the baseplate rides on rubber bumpers to protect your paint job from scratching.

Specification

Unique Technology
The design and manufacture of Corbin products is so unique that Mike Corbin himself holds more than 60 United States Patents! From the process itself to new innovations like the Corbin Glovebox, you can count on highly functional and unique products that work. Corbin products are manufactured under one or more of the following US Patents: 6,848,156 B2; 6,729,516 B2; D 489,540S; 6,655,740 B1; 6,422,648 B1; 5,544,937; 5,608,957; 4,953,911; D545,073S & 6,971,714 B1.


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.


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.


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.


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.


Modular Seat System
This component is part of Corbin’s patented modular seat system (US Patent #7,556,114). Engineered to work in a variety of configurations to provide maximum versatility on your motorcycle. A typical modular seat system consists of: Rider seat, Passenger seat, Smuggler trunk & Corbin backrest.
