New Models Combine Structure Of "Track" Seat Types With Carbon Fiber-Look Center Channel Strip And Cover

Coming soon to Saddlemen's online store are our new Track-CF seats, built with the same quality, value and innovation as our Track style seats, while offering the high-tech look associated with carbon fiber material.

As with our other Gel Channel, lines of seats, the Track-CF is built for ultimate versatility, whether for vigorous track riding, or long miles on the highway. They feature Saddlemen’s Gel Channel (GC), technology, incorporating a split piece of SaddleGel and a channel in the base foam, relieving seating pressure, increasing blood flow, and keeping the rider in the saddle longer. Our sport bike seats offer high quality, light weight construction and styling that’s second-to-none.

Saddlemen continues to innovate and expand our product line, offering sport bike products that combine the benefits of our decades of experience and our commitment to value.

Saddlemen is pleased to announce that our new Explorer G-TEC seats can now be purchased through our Saddlemen Online Store.

The latest innovation in riding comfort; the Explorer™ G-TEC combines elements of Saddlemen’s famous touring seat family with the advancement of Gel Channel technology, incorporating gel and a channel in the main foam (patents pending).

Saddlemen Mourns Recent Loss Of Sponsored Racer

Saddlemen ownership and staff were saddened to learn of the death of long-time flat track racer Rick Hocking. We were proud to sponsor Rick for several years now. Only recently he'd finished third at this year's Saddlemen Vintage Class competition at Gene Romero's WCFTS event in Las Vegas.

A California native, Rick was a rodeo rider in his youth, until getting involved in motorcycle racing in the late '60s. He raced on the AMA Grand National circuit from the mid-1970s until the early 1980s, winning four Grand National races.

 

Rick J. Hocking - November 25, 1952 to January 18, 2011

We at Saddlemen, since our founding, have enjoyed and taken pride in sponsoring motorsports racers and events. And while machines provide the thrill, velocity and competition possible, it's the spirit, commitment and courage of riders like Rick that make the heart and soul of the sport.
