The most generously sculpted seating available! Designed specially to fit the F3 and provide the greatest ergonomic advantage for touring quality support. 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 and bodywork. This allowed us to create a foam shape that keeps you in the sweet spot which provides a more positive feeling of control. We build this model higher on the sides to keep you in position effortlessly when cornering. Deep, supportive bucket design gives six and a half inches of vertical back support. 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!"
Both seating areas are designed to work with an optional Corbin backrest for added comfort and support. Use a single backrest transferred front to back as needed or order two for full time use. Corbin backrests are fully adjustable to fit a wide variety of statures and riding postures with a variety of backrest models available to suit your taste. Internal hardware keeps a clean look. Above we show our Ovalbac models #02-SB and the larger #02-T which provides more square inches of support and is narrow at the bottom to clear passenger's legs.
Passenger seating area has been maximized for a greater area of body contact and best weight distribution. When optional heated seating is ordered, we include two separate heater switches so that rider and passenger heat can be controlled individually. Both switches are conveniently located on the left side of the saddle.
All components include genuine leather seating inserts for a truly luxurious ride. For a very classy and subtle touch order your saddle all black or go custom with a wide selection of textures and colors available. Above we show two combinations:
• Black Natural Grain leather seating with Asphalt sides, Smoke Grey welt and silver stitching 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.
Dual Touring saddle offers the option of electric seat heaters for an added bit of luxury. Wiring easily into your Spyder's loom using the provided accessory plug, the Corbin seat heaters are controlled via conveniently located switches along each seating position on the left side. Heat level is maintained automatically by integrated controller. You just wire in the Corbin supplied pigtail and enjoy the warmth on those chilly morning rides.
