CORBIN INTRODUCES DUAL SPORT SADDLE FOR HONDA CRF250L | Born To Ride Motorcycle Magazine - Motorcycle TV, Radio, Events, News and Motorcycle Blog


Published on January 22, 2013 under Born To Ride

Hollister, CA- Corbin’ design wizards engineered the perfect saddle for Honda’s do-it-all 250L. This new Dual Sport saddle combines the functionality of an off-road seat with the comfort of ergonomic design. It’s perfect for dirt, trail and street with Corbin’s cool eye appealing styling.
Corbin used their high-density Comfort Cell foam which retains resiliency and doesn’t crush down like the stock foam so they could build a lower seating platform. This provides better ground reach and a balanced riding position. For the off-road enthusiast, Corbin left enough nose to allow riders to slide up the tank and get through the corners faster.

Now let’s say you’re on a Dual Sport ride and you’ve just finished a bout with a nasty stretch of trail… you have some paved miles ahead to catch your breath. Slide towards the rear of the seat and you’ll find a wider sculpted bucket shape. This area of the seat gives you more square inches of body contact and the firm support you need for amazing comfort. By the time you hit the next leg of rough stuff you’ll be well rested and ready for more.

As you’re seated, the bones in your posterior that take most of your body weight are roughly seven inches apart. Strangely enough, this is true for most adults. The stock seat at its widest point is about 6.5″. This actually makes the foam of the stock seat crush in and applies pressure to the center of your body. The Corbin model is much wider (11 inches) which supports your body weight over a greater area and equalizes pressure.

Corbin covers it with only the highest grade of materials for durability and long life. To add a custom touch, the model here is shown with Carbon-Fiber seating, Asphalt sides and a coordinating red welt. The traditional Corbin tag has been replaced with a tasteful Corbin logo stitched right into the side panel. Installation is simple with a tongue in the front and two bolts into the saddle from the sides just like stock. (MSRP: $379.00

Don’t forget about Corbin’s 4th Annual Rider Appreciation Day on July 5-6th…See you there!
