Remember that review, about that Airhawk seat? If you don’t remember, you can find it here. If you do remember, you’ll also remember I loved the seat, but that it was really designed for cruisers.
Now, Airhawk’s come out with a new seat pad meant to fit adventure bikes. The Airhawk R that I had was 14 inches deep and 15.25 inches wide, which is a bit of overkill for a dual sport. Now, they’ve got a new seat, the DS Cruiser, that’s 11.5 inches deep and 11 inches wide – much better dimensions for a skinny dual sport seat.
Remember, if you’re already short of leg, this will put your butt even further off the ground; vertically-challenged off-roaders might want to keep this in mind. Otherwise, it’s worth checking out. It’s retailing for around $170 online, which is much cheaper than a custom seat. You can find out more about Airhawk’s products here.
