SEAT HEIGHT: This seat is the same height as OEM when installed on 2012-2018 models, and 10mm TALLER than OEM on the 2008-2011 models.
The XL seat design is 11 inches wide overall which provides more surface area, better weight distribution, and added comfort for those not worried about seat width.
Seat Concepts seats are constructed using a foam material that is a much higher quality than the OEM seat foam. Their proprietary formula provides a more plush and active ride, while still offering the necessary amount of support. The standard density foam generally works well within a weight range of 165-265 lbs. If you are below or near the lower, or higher side of the weight range, you will have to contact Seat Concepts directly for a consultation as MX1 Canada does not offer custom foam density options.
The "Comfort" shape maintains a similar contour to stock at the front of the seat so that the riderís legs are not spread farther apart, and tapers out towards the mid-point to distribute the rider's weight over a greater area. These features combine to offer a custom seat feel, and provide greater enjoyment and increased range on a long commute, or Dual-Sport ride.
Complete seats are assembled on an aftermarket pan and ready to ride.
COVER OPTIONS ARE AVAILABLE WITH ORANGE STITCH ONLY:
- Carbon Fiber Sides/Low Slip Top: A happy medium between a gripper cover and a standard vinyl. This material comes standard on many European sport models.
- Carbon Fiber Sides/Gripper Top: Generally recommended for medium to heavy-duty dual-sport and off-road use. The carbon fiber material offers good durability, and the asphalt gripper gives the rider a good amount of traction.
