F4 seat order to corbin

Hello all, Normally USA products are not known for making quality products. Corbin seats are an exception. Corbin uses the best materials with heavy duty construction at a good price.
Corbin is best known for its Sportbike seats and if you could see my Gunfighter seat on my 2006 Triumph Sprint ST 1050 you would buy one of there seats in a heartbeat. Corbin has literally hundered colors and materials to choose from . All materials cost the same except Stingray. Yes the actual fish and its REAL McCoy. You can have leather,Carbon fiber(realCarbon fiber) ,suede,cloth , Vinyl (Marine type) The Stingray is the only extra and its 50$. ( stingray boots cost 1000$) ON my Sprint I went with gunfighter style with smooth Carbon fiber on riders seat and Stingray on pillon section. Looks beautiful as the pillion section is shaped round making the bike look as a one passenger race bike. The Triumph Sprint has a big seat and it was 350$(including the use of stingray) Corbin has option for Brutal and Dragster but not for the F4 ? I emailed Corbin and the salesman said he would ask boss. He didn't know the F4 existed .
Guys you know how many bikes I have bought/sold and how critical I am of upgrade parts.
Corbin akes the best seat on the market period . Please go to Corbin site and check out the Triumph Sprint st 1050 MY bike/seat . Corbin seats will still look good after your bike is worn out and on the way to the junk yard lolol. Corbin seats are assembled and ready to install.
Not like the seat..covers.. you see like luigi? seat covers which cost 180-200$ and you know an upholsterer will take a week or 2 to get done and cost you to roughly 100$ for labor ( the luigi seat covers pale in comparison of quality . (Suede doesn't hold up under even when kept well.)

ps When you go on Corbin site Remember you can mix and match what YOU want for materials ,colors ect NO CHARGE

PS Corbin uses top quality thick leather that will last for years , no extra charge.
If you intend to keep bike forever Carbon fiber and Stingray will still look goo when your grandkids start to ride . Marine Vinyl will last 15 years as long as you treat with oil base 3mblack again or similar product . Leather 10 years if you saddle soap it regularly .


Swissn Corbin has R1 seats available. The material used in bikein pic is Carbon fiber , tough as nails but smooth. If you want rough surface
for track day go with Stingray which will outlast the bike. The white trim you see in pic can be any color or not used .Stingray looks GREAT. (site tool shows examples of what different materials,colors esc)

Bought one for my Brutale. Quality, tough, well made and a lot more comfortable than the standard saddle (no sliding forward all the time). Looks better too. Too many options so I went for the standard in the photo. Nice stitched Italian colour logo on the side. Only quibble I had was the seat fastener which was a lot harder to turn as the bracket is thicker. A bit of adjustment made it better. Very grippy and hard to slide around on for track days (without the stingray). Three month wait here in Oz though. Recommended.

Cheers

Deano I did the same thing lol. The example was Carbon fiber for my Ducati 1198 and Carbon fiber Rider and Stingray for pillon (gunfighter Triumph Sprint ST 1050) The Carbon fiber looks great tough as nails. The STINGRAY is TOO good. The bike wears out before the seat.
In USA HEROIC gloves are toughest on market . They use STINGRAY for palms. I have seen guys go down at 100mph+ the rider puts arm/hands down sliding on palms ...AND THE STINGRAY MATERIAL IS SCUFFED UP , BUT STILL USABLE AGAIN AS IT DIDNT RUB THROUGH .
i have seen same scenario a dozen times .looks cool also. HEROIC gloves cost 300$ though. Wife bought them as a present 300$ too rich for my blood . takes time to loosen/break them in but last forever.
Heroic also uses Kangeroo leather which is supposed to be tough but plyable

+1 on the Heroic gear. I met Todd at NYST a few years ago and promised myself the next suit I get will be from him. A lot of my friends use his stuff. They're local to me so even better.

My Vanson jacket lasted longer than anything I had. Who says USA isn't quality.
