Air Hawk for Corbin seat
« on: March 26, 2013, 02:26:29 pm »
I love my Corbin but am going on a trip in may & will be averaging 4-500 miles a day for a few days in a row. I have tried an Air Hawk on a Buddy's ST1300 & liked it. Thought it would make a difference on a long trip. Anyone know which model fits a corbin for a 2012 Connie 14?

I have the Airhawk 2 for my commuting duties.  it is shaped just like the pic above.

check out their website about the amount of air to fill it with...that is a really big deal.  when i first tried mine, i didnt like it.  but then i took the time to dial in the amount of air, and it makes all the difference.

enjoy... :great:

To me putting an air cushion on an aftermarket seat somehow seems redundant. The aftermarket seat should fulfill all of your requirements for comfort by itself.

Financially I agree  ;D. The reality is the Corbin is comfy for a couple of hours until the butt burn kicks in. With the Airhawk, I have done many all day rides and my butt was fine. The extra $140 is well worth the additional comfort on a long day ride.
As mentioned earlier, the key with the Airhawk is to use the least amount of air possible to eliminate the pressure points.

Agree with Jonathan. For that kind of money I don't want to even think about my comfort.
May as well put the air hawk on the stock seat.
That being said I wish the stock seat was a two piece so the Corbin Smuggler would be an option.
I have done the Spencer Mod on two different bike's with great results for $95.00

I got my Corbin used, so ie wasn't custom ordered for "me". The Airhawk fits the bill until I can send the Corbin back in (or to someone else) for the changes that I want done.

I can't spend a grand on a seat right now so the airrhawk works for me also I'm no so sure a nice seat would help me that much as I have similar issues sitting on car seats for a long time . The airhawk let's you move the pressure points around somewhat .
