SaddleGel Technology Keeps You in the Drivers Seat

Without question SaddleGel is the most important breakthrough in motorcycle seating in decades. This amazing product will totally change the amount of time you spend on your motorcycle. Every type of riding just got more enjoyable. When you throw your leg over your motorcycle, you know you will be comfortable!

I rode from Los Angeles to Las Vegas on my custom seat with SaddleGel and it made the ride immensely more enjoyable!

SaddleGel provides the following benefits:

  • Redistributes weight over a larger surface area
  • Particularly effective in a fixed seating positions
  • Reduces high-pressure points or “Hot Spots”
  • Dissipates weight concentrated by hip joints
  • Increases blood flow previously restricted by compression of muscle

When it comes to motorcycle seating comfort, nothing compares to a Saddlemen seat with SaddleGel. Whether you’re looking for a large, touring seat for long-distance riding, or something low and slammed to the ground, SaddleGel gives you unsurpassed riding comfort. If SaddleGel isn’t in your seat it can be on your seat. Saddlemen’s original SaddleGel Gel Pads are available in three sizes to fit on top of your seat or anywhere else you want to use them.

Reduces Vibration, Eliminates Pressure Points
By evenly distributing your weight across the surface of the seat, SaddleGel absorbs and elminates the extra pressure that is normally experienced at hip bones and the tail bone. These pressure points or “hot spots” create a loss of blood flow, causing discomfort. By increasing circulation, your aching butt is eliminated.

Comfort Technology
It is true that SaddleGel works wonders for seating comfort, but Saddlemen doesn’t stop there. Saddlemen’s integrated seat designs include a selection of materials that work together to make our seats as comfortable as possible, while still giving your bike show-quality style.

I just finished an 8,000 tour and the most important change to my bike was the Saddlemen Stealth. The stock seat is slanted slightly toward the front, forcing you to push on the bars to maintain position. The level seating of the Stealth, and the gel material, provided a huge improvement in comfort over my previous tours. I knew from my last trip that it would be a painful for me to ride long days on a stock saddle. Thanks for providing a superior alternative.

Each Bag is Designed for a Specific Model & Hugs the Bike’s Frame

The nostalgic styling of Saddlemen’s rigid-mount Desperado bags is emphasized with details such as conchos, chrome studs and three locking buckles for security.

These traditionally shaped cargo carriers feature inner stiffeners to maintain the bag’s shape when it’s empty, and a solid ABS plastic-molded back and bottom support to offer additional shape retention and allow the unit to mount directly to the frame or struts for a custom fit. Select models even offer a quick-detach mounting option that allows them to be removed for off-bike use; check for your bike’s application.

I recently bought a roadsofa seat from an individual from eBay. I installed it yesterday and road my bike in to work today, which is a one hour trip. I will have to say that before today after riding for about twenty minutes my butt would begin to become very uncomfortable. Today for the first time in the three years that I have ridden my bike I had no comfort problems at all. Your seat has taken something that was fun, butt painful, and made it a complete joy. I am not sure what you did , or how you did it (butt) I really appreciate it. THANK YOU from well below the bottom of my heart.

Saddlemen says every bag is specially built for each bike model, so bag applications are designed to hug the specific bike’s frame. The Desperados are made for heavier loads and maximum durability, and the exterior material construction is waterproof, allowing for easy clean-up with a damp cloth. All hardware and installation instructions are included. The bags have integral built-in turn signals as required, or relocation instructions are supplied if necessary. The exterior material used on the bags’ body is a stylish, synthetic leather with real leather trim.

The Desperados are available in two sizes: 14 inches long by 10 inches tall by 6 inches wide, or a larger capacity that is 17.5 inches long by 12 inches tall by 7.5 inches wide.
