Another Corbin Seat Post

Well I got a Corbin seat. This one has the bomber leather jacket top, with carbon sides. I'm partial to Corbins, as I've had them on most of my bikes.

It looks nice, and is made well. No fitament issues. As far as feel, only had a chance to go around the block... not sure. Will have to ride it for a bit more to get feedback on that.

I have a corbin on both my bikes. they are about 1 hour away from where I live, but I just order online. They aren't cheap, about $260 just for the driver's seat. but there's a host of choices and colors, etc.

They say the seat takes 3k miles or so to break in.

I love 'em. Hate the cheap stock seats sportbikes come with.

Here's mine on my 1krr, baby alligator print (leather):


1/6 R6 throttle tube, Tri-r's, Annitori gen 2 QS, Corbin, PCV + custom tune,520 -1/+1 Vortex rearsets + Sato spindle holder, Jardine RT5 (CF), RCS19.

Spent a few hours in the saddle, man, amazing. The seat, initially hard, starts to slowly conform to your buttocks. Really comfy!

Are these seats okay for people who track their bikes aka sliding a butt cheek off the saddle and such ? I always wonder if they are good for " both worlds " no just cruising .

Naw, track you'll want stock seat. This seat really starts shaping to your ass so, when you start moving it around it feels awkward.
