Triumph Tiger Explorer: Corbin Canyon Seat

Corbin Canyon Dual Sport Saddle

Corbin has released its Canyon Dual Sport Saddle for the 2012 Triumph Tiger Explorer. This new seat converts the stock two-piece seat into a very comfortable single piece unit with provisions for two optional backrests.

Designed to maximize the comfort and usability of your bike while providing clean, custom looks, Corbin converted to a one-piece basepan to better place the seating position in the sweet spot to better accommodate taller riders.

Another benefit of the single basepan is that it provides the structural integrity to support internal backrest hardware in both the rider and passenger seating positions. Corbin backrests install and remove easily into this internal hardware to provide a clean installation with excellent added support. Corbin backrests are available in a range of models to suit your style and the amount of support desired (#02-SB Ovalbac shown).

This seat provides platforms that offer an increased area of body contact to give excellent weight dispersion and eliminate hot spots. The shaping of the Corbin saddle relieves centralized pressure and supports from the sides instead. Corbin builds the saddle up with their exclusive Comfort Cell foam for a firm, supportive ride that lasts. Comfort Cell will support you for years and will provide a personalized fit after break in (approx 1,500 miles).

For the ultimate luxurious ride, Corbin offers the option of heaters in both the rider and passenger seating areas. They wire simply into your fusebox and feature a single control for the front and rear heaters. Switch is located on the left side panel (so you can keep your hand on the throttle) and is illuminated to indicate status. Corbin’s tasteful tuck & roll stitch pattern adds a nice touch of class and is required for the seat heater elements.

If you’re looking to add a little storage to your Tiger, it doesn’t get any more convenient than the Corbin Glovebox. Four liters of weather resistant, locking storage that bolts to the back of your Corbin backrest in place of a finishing plate…it’s fully lined and weather stripped to protect your cargo.

Corbin, the world’s finest motorcycle saddle…Hand crafted in the USA and setting the standard for over four decades! From the original Corbin removable backrest to their unique saddle designs, stylish saddle bags and touring quality fairings; they are unequaled in quality, design and function.

MSRP: Canyon Dual Sport Saddle w/Heat-$637; Canyon Dual Sport Saddle w/No Heat-$493; Glovebox (painted black)-$359; and Ovalbac Leather Backrest-$229.
