Saddlemen is pleased to announce the launch of the Kevin Schwantz Signature Seat for sportbikes. The Kevin Schwantz Signature Seat features Kevin’s world famous #34 as well as his signature embroidered on the seat.
“We are very thrilled to be working with Kevin, not only is he a great ambassador for the sport, he knows exactly what’s important when it comes to seating position on a motorcycle” says, Ron Benfield, Director of Sales and Marketing at Saddlemen, “Saddlemen will also partner with Kevin at his Schwantz Motorcycle Riding Schools, by fitting the school bikes with his signature seat.“
When Kevin retired from professional competition in 1995, the FIM felt the loss to the sport was so significant that they retired his signature competition number 34. It was the first time in the history of the sport that a rider had been so honored, and his number 34 continues to be one of the most recognized symbols in racing. “I am excited to work with Saddlemen on the development of this seat and more”, says Schwantz, “my students and racers to come will benefit from the relationship as we continue to develop hi tech sport bike seats.“
Saddlemen has been crafting seats for racing for nearly 20 years, starting in Flat Track and now for sport bikes and Road Racing. Its patented channel design has set the standard for performance and design. The Schwantz School was started in 2001 with the goal of making better, safer and more confident riders. The Schwantz School holds the honor of being the only track-based school to be recognized by the Motorcycle Safety Foundation (MSF). www.SchwantzSchool.com Available at your Parts Unlimited Dealer. MSRP $299.
The Ultimate Low-Profile Bagger Seat
Designed in collaboration with Todd Silicato, noted custom bike builder, and founder of Todd's Cycles of Huntington Beach, California, these seats are designed to be the ultimate low-profile, bagger seat - while still combining proven Saddlemen comfort, support and great looks.
A current Saddlemen press release highlighting these innovative seats is available HERE for printing or downloading.

We Continue And Expand Our Legacy Of Innovative Seat Designs
At Saddlemen, 2011 is proving to be a year of growth, creativity and refinement, as we expand our world-famous line of motorcycle seats.
One of our exciting new additions is the inaugural model in our Signature Seat line, the Slammed Pro Tour™, designed with custom bike builder Todd Silicato, founder of Todd's Cycles of Huntington Beach, California. Todd applied his unique styling sense to create the ultimate low-profile, bagger seat that's acceptable for touring. Keeping Saddlemen technology and quality at the center of this new saddle, he sculpted the seat to drop down into the bike for a low riding position that also helps the rider touch the ground with confidence at stops.
Another new saddle was designed with our years of real-world experience working with riders in mind. The newest members of the Renegade™ touring seat family; our “Heels Down” seats have been developed to position the rider lower and forward for better control and riding confidence. Each saddle is low, wide and comfortable, with carefully designed contours that permit the rider to securely plant their feet when at a stop. The “Heels Down” line is now the perfect seat choice for smaller riders who desire comfort and style.
Saddlemen also is an innovator in the use of exciting new cover materials and foam on our seats, improving comfort and performance. 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 that incorporates gel and a channel in the main foam. It also features a flexible fabric cover for improved "breathing" comfort, combined with concealed gel channel and a layer of memory foam that conforms to the shape of the rider’s body to relieve pressure, to keep the rider and passenger comfortable and in the saddle longer.
Saddlemen will continue to design and unveil exciting new seats and luggage throughout 2011. Our commitment to quality, value and innovation continues. Watch for more Saddlemen releases throughout the coming year.
