Corbin Releases Canyon Dual Sport Saddle for 2014-2015 KTM 1190 Adventure / Adventure RComfort and style together in one package is what made the Corbin name famous worldwide. Delivering a quality product constructed of the finest materials available has made Corbin the number one manufacturer of motorcycle saddles for over four decades! The KTM Canyon Dual Sport saddle is a perfect example of this combination of form and function.
Designed to maximize comfort and usability while providing a custom look and longer riding range, Corbin saddles are shaped to provide contoured support that lasts all day and will become your favorite accessory the first ride out.Th KTM 1190 Adventure’s seat provides platforms that offer an increased area of body contact to give excellent weight dispersion and eliminate hot spots. This saddle design is neutralized to curb the tendency to slide in the saddle which will greatly reduce fatigue.The shaping of the Corbin saddle relieves centralized pressure and supports from the sides instead. We build the saddle up with our 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 (approximately 1,500 miles)Another benefit of neutralized seating is that it creates a nice back support area for the rider. Notice how the step in the saddle gives both platforms a level posture and also creates over three inches of lower back support up front. Even with the improved shaping, the Corbin Canyon Dual Sport saddle still provides a clean, flowing line on the bike.Covered using genuine leather for a perch that breathes with your body. Corbin’s quality leather will break in along with your foam for a luxurious ride. Just make sure you care for your saddle with a good conditioner like Corbin’s Saddle Cream. For this model Corbin used black carbon-fiber leather in the seating with Asphalt vinyl sides for contrast, black seat stitching and orange assembly stitching.Saddle installs like stock and integrates with the KTM key lock.For those interested in obtaining more information on Corbin, you can reach them at 800-538-7035 or online at www.corbin.com.
