SADDLEMEN is one of the first aftermarket seat companies to have options available for the H-D Street 500 and 750 with the introduction of the Street Two Up. It features a wide, supportive bucket for the driver, which is combined with a slim contoured rear seat, and the specially designed base allows the seat to drop down into the bike to create a low riding position.

Internally, the Street Two Up uses Saddlemen’s Gel Core technology, which combines the attributes of its proprietary SaddleGel with its advanced Progressive Density Foam (Pd-F) to create superior comfort. In this seat, it is used to create a refined gel channel to relieve seating pressure on the perineal area, increasing blood flow for greater comfort.
Externally, the seat is covered with SaddleHyde upholstery that offers a combination of a leathery feel with weather-resistance.
Saddlemen’s range of Harley-Davidson seats also includes the Profiler line, available to fit XL and FX models.
The two-up Profiler seats are designed to offer the lowest riding position possible, and to achieve this they have seat pans that follow the shape of the bike by incorporating Saddlemen’s Integrated Design Philosophy (IDP), which takes styling cues from each motorcycle and incorporates them into the contours and patterns of each seat.
Internally, the Profiler seats feature a combination of progressive density foam and SaddleGel in the driver's position, which is claimed to ease tailbone pressure and improve circulation.
Options on the seat include a contrasting grain basket-weave and SaddleHyde cover, where the basket-weave seating area is said to allow for more breathability and extra traction when needed. There is also the choice of a leather covering with a tuck ‘n’ roll finish with no-show seams.
|Road Sofa LS|
The company’s seat offerings continue with the Road Sofa LS, which is available for Touring models. The newly refined unique split cushion design, which separates the lumbar support from the seating platform, which is claimed to reduce hot spots and tailbone pressure. In addition, the contours of the seat have been sculpted to provide the lowest ride possible.
Ventilated soft upholstery seating leather is used on the Road Sofa LS to cover Saddlemen’s proprietary SaddleGel, which is used in conjunction with its advanced Progressive Density Foam (Pd-F). The thickness, shape and location of the SaddleGel is adjusted and combined with the Pd-F to produce a seat core best suited for each ride.
The Saddlemen Road Sofa LS accommodates the Harley-Davidson backrest option and a matching backrest / Tour-Pak pad cover is available to complete the custom look, and a further option is independent heating for driver and passenger.
