Airhawk R Seat Pad

The last mile feels like the first, thanks to AIRHAWK's exclusive Shape Fitting Technology. This patented system eliminates painful points and promotes consistent blood flow for a longer, more comfortable ride. Memory foam can't do it. Gel seat can't do it. Only a genuine Airhawk R Seat cushion can do it.  The neoprene AIRHAWK's stretchy material has a much more substantial and luxurious feel, especially at the end of a long day in the saddle.

Features:

  • Center cutout area runs from front to back of cushion
  • Re-designed cell geometry improves airflow under the rider = no hot seat
  • Back cutaway allows for a tail bone relief area with a tapered transition for increased comfort
  • Cushion comes standard with cover, attachment loops, and cruiser straps. 
  • Cushion Material: Neoprene rubber 
  • Cover Material: Stretch polyester material top cover. Side panels are 3-layer knit polyester providing air circulation. Fluid-proof, non-skid base is easy to clean and durable.
  • Dimensions: 15.25" Wide x 14" Deep x 2" Tall (39.5 cm x 35.5 cm x 5 cm)
  • 3 year limited warranty

Airhawk R Seat Pad 4.4 5 60 60
Surprised how good this thing is... I bought my the R pad for my Honda NC700. When I took it out of the box i was worried about the size but once installed it was a perfect fit. The NC700 has a notoriously bad seat and the after market companies are pretty pricey. This pad evened out the slope on the seat and provides significantly more comfort for long rides. It takes a little trial and error to get the amount of inflation correct, less really is more in this category, but once you get it dialed in you forget about it. July 3, 2014
When you forget how comfortable you are is when you know it works! Pricey yes, but the comfort and how much more I enjoy my bike is worth it to me. Excellent quality so I know it will last, I'll be able to use it with other bikes so that's a huge plus. Easy installation, backed by 60 day money back guarantee from the manufacturer! July 2, 2014
Took awhile to get find my spot, but I love it now They say you're only supposed to put a tiny amount of air in it (there should be a very thin layer of air between your butt and the seat), so that's what I did, and it just wasn't doing anything for me. I was getting pretty disappointed with it, so I said screw it: I'm going to use it just like a regular air mattress. I inflated it almost all the way full, with just enough extra room in there for the air to displace when I'm sitting on it. It was like night and day! I was able to ride 12 hours straight on my trip from Austin back home. I'm probably not using it quite right, but it works for me, so I'm going to keep using it this way. Hopefully it doesn't blow out on me while I'm riding! June 26, 2014
superb I used to have lower back issues and once in awhile sciatic nerve pain. I ride a lot ( 55k since 5/2010 ), the air hawk pillow allowed to keep riding, and honestly I have no pain. Keep in mind, once you are used to it, riding without is "not pleasant". my 1st pillow lasted almost 4 years, but I ride all year long. June 22, 2014
This saves Butts At first I thought, I'm going to have to send this back. I was wrong. After making many rides and adjustments I finally got it set right. First I had too much air in it. Second I had it too far back on the seat. Of coarse it will depend on you. Your adjustments may differ from mine, but don't give up. Keep test riding and change it up, you'll find your sweet spot. I'm happy with it now and so is my Butt. June 16, 2014
Does the job very well, but... I'd probably give this product five stars if it wasn't so expensive. It's very comfortable on a long trip once you get the right air pressure dialed in correctly. I've had hip surgery and this helped me remain in the saddle with less stops. Perhaps the greatest benefit is the air flow between you and the seat which makes the ride much more comfortable sitting on top of an air cooled V-twin 103. Overall, a great product, but a bit expensive for what it really is. However, it's much cheaper than a custom seat. If you're considering the cheaper version AirHawk, don't waste your money. I bought one for my wife and will be returning it. She ended up preferring to ride on the seat instead. June 9, 2014
Long trips wouldn't be possible without it I'm probably just a baby but my rear end gets really sore really quickly. I wouldn't be able to really do long trips without this seat. It does it job well and certainly makes long rides a great deal more comfortable. It's not perfect though, it doesn't grip my seat all that well so it moves more than I'd like it to and I should probably find a better way to install it as the straps it came with like to move as well. These issues are pretty minor and I could probably resolve them with a little more time. May 21, 2014
Great seat Bought this for my '14 FJR1300 and used it for recent 2500mile trip including a couple of 800+ mile days. Once I found the sweet spot with the inflation level this seat felt great. It would be an exaggeration to say 800 miles with zero pain in the rear, but truly I spent only a few minutes every couple hundred miles off the bike and felt great at the end of the day. Perfect fit for the bike, on and off is easy so you can take it off for a night in the hotel if you choose, makes for a nice dry seat the next morning if you do. Its not cheap but you get a well made product that is considerably less expensive than a new or custom seat. April 21, 2014

Rex C: I don't know if the Airhawk will fit your bike. I ride a Vulcan 900LT. The Airhawk was a less expensive alternative to replacing the factory seat (not all that bad really) with something far more expensive. The Airhawk was a small improvement. I still found myself praying for a stop light so I could stand up for a few seconds. Facing a 2500 mile ride, however, I decided to bite the bullet and buy a Mustang seat for my bike. So glad I did!

My advice... save the money from the Airhawk and apply it to the Mustang seat. If you ride much, you are going to do it eventually, anyway. Call the Revzilla folks and have them send the seat made for your bike. I think installation involved taking the seat off, replacing one bolt, and putting the new one back on the bike.

Hope that helps.

Stephen F: While I have a Harley Ultra Classic (FLHTSECU7) and not a Victory I think our seats could be similar . I have what HD calls a hammock seat . It is wide in the rear and narrow with a dip at the horn . My Air Hawk fits perfect and for added measure look stylish . Just took it on a road trip that was over 6000 miles . Yes , 6000 . The pad worked wonderfully . One of the best accessories I have bought for my ride . Aug 19, 2013

Rob S: I don't have that particular bike but mine I installed on a Vstrom which has the same issue. The extra material that contours over the front edges of the seat are not a problem, just gives a little extra padding on the inside of your legs. Also I LOVE the Airhawk R. 500 mile days..,no problem!

A shopper asked: Would this fit a Yamaha Fz6 well? It seems more cruiser oriented... Apr 26, 2012
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (1) No (0)
VN900B: I'm not personally familiar with the Fz6 but I looked at some photos. Since the Airhawk R model is shaped a bit like a tractor seat it would seem pretty wide for the Fz6 seat.

After riding on the Airhawk it's my impression that it wouldn't work very well if it wasn't completely supported across its base. That's because of the way the air chambers interconnect. I think if the edges of the Airhawk protruded past the edges of your bike seat that it would be uncomfortable and not very supportive. It could also seem to shift around (as the air moved between chambers) and this could potentially be unsettling on a sport bike in more spirited riding.

Davidson L: I have my Airhawk R on my 2013 Suzuki Boulevard C90T and I highly recommend it. We just took a Memorial Day Weekend ride that was 1200 miles in the three days. I think the C50 and C90T have similar stock seats but this has a cruiser seat profile and it almost looks like it is custom cut to my factory seat. It is best to keep the air bladder inflated as low as you can ,almost like sitting down into it. I had it too inflated at first and it was not that comfortable now it is great. It shifts as you ride eliminating pressure points and when you hit rough road , that on the stock seat alone would go right up my spine, this seat pad smoothes it right out. Definitely makes the long ride a lot more comfortable worth the bucks for sure. Jun 3, 2014

Stephen F: I can't answer specifically regarding fit on your C50 but the Airhawk people can. I will tell you that I own a HD Electra Glide Ultra and the fit is very good . I consider the Airhawk-R one of my best accessories as it was designed for men and performs as advertised . 500 to 800 mile days are the norm on my road trips and I consider my Airhawk a necessity .P.S. It is important to follow instructions and not over inflate . Jun 3, 2014

A shopper asked: I ride a Pulsar 200 NS, a bike which you might not be really familiar with.
To make it slightly easier, the Pulsar 200 shares the same DNA as the KTM Duke 200.
Since I am in India, I have to order this seat from the US as there are no dealers here in the country.
Very recently I concluded a 8500 Kms ride across India and came back with 3 Slip Discs in the lower vertebral region.
Can any if you good folks please tell me which Airhawk would be suitable for my bike?
A quick reply would really help since my brother flies back from the US soon, and I can ask him to get it for me.
Thanks a lot in advance!

Cheers!

Patrick F: I have this pad on a BMW G650GS. It is wider than my seat and overhangs a few inches on the side towards the back of the pad. I imagine that something similar would happen on a sport spike seat like you have. This seat is ideally meant for cruisers which have a wide saddle shape. It doesn't bother me that it hangs over the edges a bit and the seat is quite comfortable. I will only caution that it may interfere with an aggressive riding position on your seat if you are so adjusted to riding on the track or curvy roads. Cheers. Jul 16, 2014

Daniel A: Sounds like your bike has more of a motocross seat, if so the DS Cruiser is likely your best bet. I purchased a wide comfort seat for my 800GS, and it was still uncomfortable, so I ended up purchasing the Airhawk R. Trick is not to fill it with too much air. Jul 18, 2014

Robert P: Its been 10 years since my first Airhawk. The comfort effect gets me added time
in the saddle, 10 hours a day is not a unreasonable. Custom seats that I have tried, have been a waist of money. Airhawk is the best option.

A shopper asked: Is there a way to upholster it under leather for a custom seat. Jun 13, 2012
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
VN900B: In my opinion it could be done on the right bike and by a talented seat maker.

First you'd need to measure your current seat to see if the dimensions are close to what you have or would work with your bike since I see no way to alter the shape of the Airhawk (nor would you likely want to).

Your seat maker would need to allow for access to the air valve (small zipper or such) but it's going to be a bit awkward given it's location (rear left corner of pad). You'd likely need to find a rubber or vinyl tube that would slip onto the mouthpiece of the air valve since trying to get to in mounted on the bike would be "interesting" to say the least.

I think you need to ride with it and get it adjusted to you before having the seat made so you'd know what thickness you're dealing with (since it quite variable by the rider). ROHO, the manufacturer, recommends about 1/2" of air but it's really up to you.

Potentially the most difficult part would be not having the cover on the seat restrict the Airhawk since it's designed to move air around as you move or shift in your seat. That means a traditional cover of vinyl or leather could really restrict things, especially if pulled taut to get all the wrinkles out.

Also, the Airhawk has mesh sides on its cover to allow airflow in and around the air chambers to eliminate hot spots. This would be kind of tricky to incorporate into a seat but the right seat maker could probably do it.

Bottom line, I think it could be done but it will be quite the challenge and likely expensive since it will take a really experienced and talented seat maker to get it right. I'd suggest getting one and riding on it for a bit to see if it "does it" for you. If it doesn't you can take advantage of the return policy.

Good luck.

Nicholas C.: I wouldn't recommend it as I think the leather would reduce the ability of the air to shift around. Perhaps if you used really supply leather, it might work out, but you have to consider that you need to keep access to the air valve (different temperatures and elevations require the air amount to change a bit), and if you get a puncture somehow it would be nice to be able to get in there to patch it. Overall, probably too much of a hassle. Sep 4, 2012

RevZilla: Yes, the Airhawk R would certainly be a good fit for the 650 GS. The Airhawk is actually shaped very similar to your seat and will fit more naturally due to its shorter front to back distance. I can personally attest that the "R" version is the most comfortable of the lineup. Dec 7, 2012

Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
Nicholas C.: I have an F800GS which is a bit bigger seat. I picked the S size, and it fits the seat nicely. I think the R is a bit too wide, but it does have the channel in the middle which seems like a good feature. I think it'll look a bit weird as it's so much wider than the seat, but it might be worth it for the channel. I wouldn't worry about losing functionality due to the added width, that'll just hang over and not be much of an issue. Sep 4, 2012

VN900B: Hi,

In my opinion the answer would be "no". The Airhawk-R is shaped kind of like a tractor seat and intended, as best I can tell, for cruiser style (or at least wide seat) bikes. I think if you tried to wrap the R model around the sides of the seat you'd loose the effectiveness of the thing.

They may have other models that would fit an R1 but not this one in particular.
