Main (Top of Page)




Not have a sore butt during long rides (2+ hours). I weigh 170 lb and am 5’10” tall.




I ordered mine through my Honda dealership.

It has a higher friction coefficient than the stock seat.




Freeway comfort


On the freeway, with the stock seat I have to lift my butt after 60 minutes (to relieve pain under the sitting bones) and with this one it is about 70 minutes.
