Article Shows Saddle Design In-Progress
Saddlemen is proud to have a custom-made seat featured as part of the current Hot Bike Magazine series of articles showing the transformation of a 2000 model year Harley-Davidson Sportster into a tribute to the 1977 XLRCR cafe racer.
Above: shown with the bike in progress, the article shows our craftsmen designing, fitting and tailoring the seat.
The editors of Hot Bike Magazine were kind enough to let us share the article online. It can be viewed here. Our thanks to the people at Hot Bike for letting us share this content from their April 2011 issue. A second installment will appear in their May issue, showing the completed project.
Custom seat work has been a tradition at Saddlemen since our founding. Our expert designers and technicians have decades of experience in creating the optimal seat for any machine and any riding style, combining our industry-leading materials and know-how.
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.
Above: our Track-CF seat for the Yamaha R6 for the 2008 and 2009 model years.
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.

New Seat Models Combine Best Design And Features Of Saddlemen Product Line
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).
The G-TEC's flexible fabric cover breathes well, and is installed over a concealed gel channel and a layer of memory foam that conforms to the shape of the rider’s body, relieving seating pressure and increasing blood flow to keep the rider and passenger comfortable and in the saddle longer.

Many G-TEC models are available with a matching driver’s backrest for superb lumbar support and riding comfort. Each seat is easy-to-install with all necessary mounting hardware and instructions included. All Saddlemen seats are proudly made in the U.S.A.
