Product Details


Description for Saddlemen Explorer G-Tech Seat with Backrest

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

• Built-in Saddlemen driver's backrest with a matching cover that can be adjusted both horizontally and vertically to the rider's back and is removable for a sleek appearance

• 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

Very nice seat but for the money it is pretty firm. I have a Mustang on my Wide Glide and this feels firmer than it but it better than the factory one.

Excellent riding comfort. But for the money the top could be made of something more durable. 2 years and just had to have it recovered. Started disintegrating after first year.

Ok right, it's super comfortable but there's a huge drawback. Installed it on a breakout 2014 and now sitting a good 2-3" higher than the stock one. I didn't expect it to be so thick.The passenger seat just looks ridiculous in the back. I put back my stock seat and will try to sell this one locally (unfortunately, I'm an international buyer). I just can't ride my bike sitting so high.

Seat faded almost right away. Now it looks a horrible two tone. My bike is garage kept etc. so it wasn't even out in the elements.
