Corbin Saddles

Comfort and Style: Zero SR/R

Always an innovator, Mike Corbin owns more than 60 United States patents and is never slow in coming forward with something new for the newest of the new.
However, unless we have overlooked something, this is the first aftermarket part or accessory we have had the chance to feature in AMD Magazine for the all-electric, made in California ZERO!

This Dual saddle for the ZERO SR/R boasts the same comfort and style that has made the Corbin name famous worldwide. The upfront the seating area has been ergonomically designed to distribute body weight over a greater area. This provides longer-range support and eliminates hot spots.
The neutralized and optimized seating platform helps to hold the body in place and curbs sliding in the saddle. This also helps to relieve rider fatigue by taking pressure off the wrists and knees.
The passenger section is shaped to work with the handrails and luggage rack while maximizing the passenger's seating area. Concave shaping of the front seating area "gives an unprecedented amount of body support. Notice how it curves up at the back to provide support to your lower back. Towards the front of the bucket, we design the saddle narrower to allow for ground reach. Smaller riders may prefer to slide forward and out of the bucket at stop signs for best ground reach.

"For those chilly morning rides, we offer an option of heated seating. We incorporate a heater unit under the leather seating and a switch on the left side of the saddle (so you can turn it on without removing your hand from the throttle). Just flip the switch and the seat will warm up and maintain temperature automatically." Corbin's heater comes completely pre-installed in the saddle and you need only integrate the included pigtail.
Corbin's saddle mounts like stock and includes a latch pin on the saddle, so it's ready for immediate installation.
The Fibertech basepan is a purpose-built, hybrid material that provides a firm foundation to support the carefully designed ergonomics of the Corbin saddle. "It provides a precision fit to every arc and contour of the machine and rides on rubber bumpers to protect the paint. We always design our basepans as flat as possible, so bumps or odd shapes don't telegraph through the foam to your body.
"Our exclusive, proprietary Comfort Cell Foam is at the heart of the Corbin saddle - it was created to provide a firm, resilient ride that doesn't break down."
