Product Details


Description for Saddlemen Explorer G-Tech Seat

A true innovation in riding comfort; the Explorer G-TECH combines elements of Saddlemen's famous touring seat family with the advancement of our patented Gel Channel technology that incorporates gel and a channel in the main foam. Flexible fabric cover breathes well over a concealed gel channel and a layer of memory foam that conforms to the shape of the rider's body to relieve pressure on the perineal area and increase blood flow to keep the rider and passenger comfortable for much longer. The deep, wide contours of the saddle are mated with a new nose shape that helps the rider touch the ground with confidence at stops.

• A unique version of Saddlemen's popular touring seat family, engineered and styled to add superb comfort and quality to your motorcycle

• The seat's contours have been carefully developed using decades of experience to provide many miles of riding pleasure

• Standard-profile Explorer G-TECH seats have a similar or lower height as the original H-D seat, but with a carefully shaped front section so the rider can better touch the ground at stops

• The memory-foam, fabric and vinyl seat cover creates an exceptionally comfortable riding experience, especially in warmer weather

• The proprietary molded memory-foam cover has support panels for a unique, modern appearance that covers a Gel Channel foam foundation for cool comfort

• Saddlemen's Gel Channel (GC) technology (patent pending) seats incorporate a split piece of SaddleGel and a channel in the base foam to relieve seating pressure on the perineal area, increase blood flow, thus keeping the rider in the saddle longer

• Exclusive, unique split-cushion design cover also separates the seating surface from the lumbar support, reducing tailbone and back pressure

• Features large, plush lumbar sections that support the driver's back and posterior

• The passenger section has been altered to improve comfort by strategically adding foam height and shaping the seating area so the passenger is not forced into the driver and has a better view over the driver's shoulder

• The seat's carefully engineered, gel-coated marine-grade fiberglass base with plated hardware is the foundation for a long service life

You need to put on that there is no back rest slot in seat

I have the same seat on one of my other bikes and this one seems a lot harder and not as comfortable as the other one.

Very comfortable and a perfect fit. Only negative is lack of waterproofing. The seat soaks up water like a sponge. Fortunately Saddlemen make a waterproof bonnet, too bad you have to purchase it separately.

Good quality components but looked horrible on the bike, nothing like the picture. Really thick passenger section will not fit with a short sissy bar and pad. They bumped up the shipping weight for the return. 12lbs shipped to me, 30lbs shipped to them. Same seat, same box, same packing, same paperwork. 1 more piece of tape.

I've had this seat for 3 years. By far the most comfortable seat I've ever been on. However, this seat moves me too far forward on the bike and I do not like the seat cover material at all. If the cover was made from a more durable, water resistant material and it didn't push me forward 3 inches (maybe more), I'd say it was the perfect seat.

This seat, while very comfortable, has faded to a ghostly gray, which someone else commented. This is my second season and beyond the fading, the fabric is tearing at the stitching and the gel pad seems to be deteriorating and becoming stiff. I have ridden about 6k miles with this seat and am 5'10" @ 180 lbs so I wouldn't say the stitching is tearing because I'm a beast. Very disappointed.

Just got mine. Does not look like picture. Definitely gonna have to cover the bottom so as not to ruin bike. Hope it fits and is comfortable. Not expecting much now. Last thing I ever buy not in my hands.

This is an inferior product! Just after three months, it had faded to a ghostly grey.
