RiderMagazine.com's Greg Drevenstedt and his girlfriend, Carrie found relief in Saddlemen's SaddleGel Gel Pads on a week-long tour test to Redwood National Park last summer on a Kawasaki Concours 14. After a couple hundred of miles and a miserable case of "monkey-butt," they were very happy to have the gel pads to be able to continue their ride in relative comfort. Read the article here.

In the early ‘90s, the experienced riders at Saddlemen figured out a way to incorporate all the benefits of gel into a motorcycle seat and quickly learned it was far more comfortable than standard seats for a variety of reasons. For one, SaddleGel isolates engine and road vibration, a common cause of rider fatigue. Saddlegel is a molded solid with fluid-like properties that will not slide to one side or move around in your seat like air or water in a plastic bag; instead the proprietary design eliminates pressure points at the hip bones and tail bone by evenly distributing your weight across the surface of the seat. Otherwise, pressure points or “hot spots” can hinder blood flow, causing pain and discomfort. Normal circulation is never lost on a seat with SaddleGel, and it keeps your rear end comfortable on a long ride, and ready to respond quickly as road conditions change.

Comfort, Convenience, Universal Fit, Exceptional Styles & Great Value

Saddlemen’s SaddleGel™ technology has been around for decades, and in the last few years, there have been other companies out there that have copied our idea—but we don’t mind. As the saying goes, imitation is the highest form of flattery—which is further proof we’ve been doing it right all along —but then we knew that. So when it comes to getting the perfect holiday gift for the rider in your life, why not get a genuine Saddlemen™ SaddleGel™ pad?

It’s easy to justify the value of a SaddleGel pad; you get so much for relatively little money. SaddleGel Pads far exceed the comfort of a stock seat by dampening vibration and absorbing shocks from rough roads. They’re easy to use and fit almost every bike ever made, so there are never any fitment issues— they work every time. Plus, they’ll work with more than one bike. You can move it from your big-twin cruiser to your sport bike in seconds and back without any tools.

Our Saddlegel™ Pads are available in three standard sizes, made to work with the widest range of machines: Extra Large (12.5" length x 15.5" rear width x 8.5" front width), Large (10.5" length x 14" rear width x 8" front width) and Medium (9.5" length x 8" rear width x 6" front width).

Challenging the Roads of the “Roof of the World”

Saddlemen Gel Pads High Altitude Road

Saddlemen Gel Pads Himalayan Camp

Recently, a friend of Saddlemen, Joe Bonnello, was one of a group of five trail riders braving the highest roads in the world, in the northwestern Himalayan mountains, on Indian-made Royal Enfield motorcycles. Joe made sure to take along a Saddlemen Gel Pad when challenging these largely unpaved roads. “I thank you from the bottom of my ass. Without the gels, I would not have survived,” said Bonnello. “The shocks on those Enfields are simply non-existent!”

The group conquered the highest road on Earth, the Khardungla Pass, listed at nearly 18,400 feet above sea level! Located in the northern-most province of India, Jammu and Kashmir, this area borders both Pakistan and China, and is only about 500 miles straight east from Kabul, Afghanistan!

The distinctive, bright yellow landmark and road safety signs seen in some of the photos are from the HIMANK organization, and often use “Burma Shave” style slogans to encourage safety on these wild roads.

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.
