Saddlemen LS Road Sofa
Founded in 1987, Rancho Dominguez, California based manufacturer Saddlemen say their Road Sofa LS for 1997 through current Harley-Davidson touring bikes “was created for a single purpose: to have a luxurious saddle for comfortable, long distance touring without compromising styling.”
The company says that, like all their seats, LS Road Sofa was engineered with “industry leading Gel-Core construction for unsurpassed comfort.” Gel-Core is engineered to dampen, divert and deflect energy to create a smooth, therapeutic ride. At the heart of this technology is specially formulated viscoelastic polymer known as SaddleGel, which when combined with the latest in co-molding technology, reduces engine vibration by up to 50 percent, and direct impact forces by up to 92 percent.
“Painstakingly crafted seating contours cradle the rider for proper alignment with pegs, bars, controls and reduce strain and fatigue. Perforated leather seating panels are breathable for continuous ventilation, and compliant enhancement of the SaddleGel and Comfort Foam properties used below the cover. These saddles fit and feel right.”
Features include a tall lumbar support with a wide driver saddle that supports the back and legs, while a streamlined nose improves the rider's reach to the ground. A refined split-cushion design separates the seating surface from the lumbar support, reducing tailbone and back pressure from maximum long-range comfort. The 15.5” wide driver bucket is matched with a 13” passenger perch.
Ventilated soft seating leather provides breathable comfort and unsurpassed looks, and it comes with a fitted rain cover specially designed to protect the seat from harsh elements. The optional OEM compatible driver’s backrest has independent adjustments for fore-aft position, height and angle, and folds forward (sold separately - will not fit on 2009-2015 Harley-Davidson Trike models).
