Touratech Comfort Seat for Pan America

Promising "maximum comfort on long rides and optimum ergonomics in all riding situations," this two-piece "comfort seat" from German ADV parts and accessory specialist Touratech is said to "noticeably enhance the touring capability of the Harley-Davidson Pan America."

"There is much to admire about Harley's Pan America, especially as a first time design for a new sector such as the ADV market. But the seat? The different statures of riders make a compromise in the design of standard equipment unavoidable. Not so with the Touratech comfort seat though. This two-part design offers riders a choice of three different heights. 

"The seat core is made of high-grade ergonomically shaped special purpose-tested foam, which is specific to the model and does not lose its shape even on the longest stages. The shape of the core is anatomically optimized. This means that not only is the contour completely free of disrupting edges, but the special shaping also provides efficient relief for the coccyx and supports an upright sitting position. 

"Thanks to the ingenious shaping of the contour, it has a reduced inner leg curve length so that the rider's feet reach the ground more easily even though the seat height remains the same. The foam core is bonded to the seat cover over the entire surface, preventing them from shifting independently. The result is firm seating and optimum power transmission for precise handling."

'Fresh Touch' technology reflects the infrared in sunlight - resulting in up to 10 degrees less heat being stored in the seat. Waterproof taped seams prevent the penetration of water into the foam core. Riders retain full use of the standard height adjustment.
