Hollister, CA – Corbin’s new Dual Touring saddle is the perfect blend of form and function for the new Chief models. As always, they’ve maximized the seating area and positioned the rider bucket in the sweet spot to offer the best possible ergonomics and long range comfort. Sculpted seating platforms conform to the shape of your body to give more square inches of even support and eliminate hot spots and pressure on your tailbone. This version of Corbin’s Dual Touring saddle is specially designed to work with the Roadmaster trunk.
Bucket shaping of the front seating area gives an unprecedented amount of body support. Notice how it curves up at the back to provide over six inches of support to your lower back. Towards the front of the bucket we design the saddle narrower to allow for ground reach. Smaller riders may prefer to slide forward and out of the bucket at stop signs for best ground reach.
|Corbin’s Dual Tour has the option of electric seat heaters in both the rider andpassenger seating positions. Both the rider and passenger areas are controlled independently via conveniently located switches in the left side panels. Corbin’s seat plugs directly into wiring that exists on the motorcycle.
On the outside we use genuine leather seating for a luxurious ride that breathes with your body. Corbin uses special distressed tan leather just for Indian models to coordinate with their accessories or choose the standard natural grain black leather depending on your bike’s options. Corbin designed a cover pattern that blends visually with the Chief’s visuals and allows a variety of customization options like a tasteful color coordinated welt (shown).
Genuine leather fringe lends a truly classic look and is available at no extra charge if desired. In keeping with the design of the OEM components, we’ve incorporated an oversized stitching so you keep consistent look across all components and that vintage appeal.
For your Indian Roadmaster, Corbin also offers an improved passenger trunk armrest. Just like the Corbin saddle, the trunkrest maximizes body contact to disperse weight over a greater area and reduce hot spots. Sculpted to fit your passengers back and fit perfectly to the Indian trunk. Includes genuine leather back panels and comes fully coordinated to your Corbin saddle. Corbin trunk armrest includes BOTH the upper trunkrest and the small lower pad near the seat.

Hollister, CA- Corbin’s new saddles eliminate pressure points and increases riding range due to their ergonomically corrected seating platforms. Built up of high-density Comfort Cell foam for sport-touring comfort, they’re shaped like your body to create a greater area of body contact and proper weight distribution. Built firm to stay resilient and support your body all day long.After an initial break-in period, Comfort Cell® foam will adapt to your body to provide an even greater degree of comfort. Additionally, the seating platforms have been neutralized to reduce the tendency to slide towards the tank under braking. Corbin’s seat is shaped to provide support for your legs while your feet are on the footpegs, but is shaved in the nose area to allow good ground reach.
Corbin saddles come standard with genuine leather seating inserts for a true touch of luxury. We recommend our Carbon Fiber laminated leather seating with Asphalt vinyl sides and a tasteful color coordinated welt. Leather will provide a seating surface that breathes with your body and will adapt with the foam during break in for a perfectly personalized fit. MSRP: Front saddle-$272.00, Rear saddle-$194.00.

If you took all the good stuff about motorcycling and distilled it, this is what you’d get… The Grom.
Ridiculously fun to ride for virtually anybody at any skill level. The only complaint we’ve heard was the wedgie inducing slope of the stock seat and a lack of custom parts available… we’re happy to help on both counts!
Nice styling that fits perfect to the bike and installs easily. A host of color and material options let you design a seat that suits your taste from mild to wild. On this page you’ll find three different options shown:
Black Asphalt seating, Asphalt sides and Tomato Red welt.
Black Carbon Fiber seating, Asphalt sides, Red Double Diamond stitch and Tomato Red welt.
Black Carbon Fiber seating, Asphalt sides, Red Double Diamond stitch and Tomato Red welt.
The Red sides would look great on the red bike, but we couldn’t find anyone willing to get off their bike long enough for us to get a picture of it so you’ll have to use your imagination for now.
Like all Corbin saddles, we start by crafting a seat using our high-density Comfort Cell foam. Comfort Cell retains resiliency and doesn’t crush down like the stock foam so we can build a lower seating platform. This gives you good ground reach and balanced riding position. We were also sure to neutralize the seating position to help curb sliding forward in the saddle.
This seat gives you more square inches of body contact and firm support for amazing comfort value. Sculpted to fit the shape of the human body to eliminate centralized pressure on the tailbone. Built up on a Fibertech basepan that is rigid to support the carefully designed foam shape. Corbin’s basepan rides on rubber bumpers to avoid scratching the bike’s paint.
Installation is simple with a tongue in the front and a latch bracket in the rear that integrates with the factory key lock. When new, you may want to install washers between the latch bracket and seat pan to allow the saddle to latch easier. The washers can be removed once the rubber bumpers break in a little.
