RANCHO DOMINGUEZ, Calif. - Saddlemen adds to its adventure bike market lineup with the Adventure Tour saddle, designed for racking up big miles in comfort.
The seat combines the company’s SaddleGel progressive density foam and uses a Gel Channel-design cover to provide what the company calls “unparalleled comfort.” The Gel Channel technology is not externally visible, but is designed to provide riders with support and perineal relief.
The durable marine-grade vinyl cover is reportedly not only weather-resistant but also resists cold-cracking. According to Saddlemen, each seat features specially sculpted foam that has been widened where the rider settles in for the long haul. The seat’s nose area is reshaped to aid the rider in touching the ground plus the pitch has been carefully adjusted to prevent unwanted sliding into the fuel tank.
The seat has a CF-look and smooth vinyl cover with accent stitching thus matching the look of the company’s Adventure Pack luggage line. Saddlemen’s Adventure Tour is available in the following configurations: single-piece seats, two-piece sets (shown top right) or select standalone solo (left) rider seats. Most models also come in an optional low-profile setup.
Each seat mounts to the bike and retains the original seat’s height adjustment features (if equipped). Integrated bag/cargo mounting points on the pillion portion of the Adventure Tour seats allow for the installation of the matching Adventure PACK luggage or other cargo.
