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

Don't waste your money You shouldn't go to the grocery store when you're starving. You'll buy stuff you don't need. When your butt's tired or sore after a long ride, you shouldn't shop for seat accessories that make big promises they can't meet! I have tried every possible inflation level from nearly none to too much, and it makes no difference. I keep returning to my stock seat for a more comfortable ride. On top of not delivering the comfort promised, the front attachment strap came loose after the first time I rode with it. This product is expensive and doesn't deliver. Save your $$. March 24, 2014
Makes the long haul much easier Took a little getting used to but after a while I didn’t even know it was there and it definitely makes a long ride easier on the backside. If some discomfort started settling in, all I had to do was shift my weight a little and the air moved in bladder and changed the pressure points. Easy to install and remove and fit perfectly on my FJR1300 seat. I would definitely recommend this to other riders. December 19, 2013
Needs some tweaking but works well I purchased the Airhawk for my new GSW. I can only ride comfortably on the stock seat for a couple of hours. The comfort level and ridding time were most definitely increased. It does take a while and some patients to get the adjustment correct but since this is not my first Airhawk, I knew that. October 14, 2013
As Advertised I was having issues with pain after 40 miles on my 2004 BMW R1150RT Bought this and rode 548 miles in one day, with minimal discomfort. What a difference. October 7, 2013
Oh my no longer aching A## I bought this because the saddle on my BMW R1200RT gets a bit hard over a long ride. Prior to this, my longest ride before the soreness became unbearable was around 6 hours. I did an 11.5 hour ride from Gettysburg, PA, to Deals Gap NC in July using this product, and while I think everyone will be a bit sore after that one, it was definitely a HUGE benefit to have the Airhawk R. You do have to work to adjust the inflation to the "right" level for you. That did take a bit of adjustment/experimentation to get right. October 7, 2013
Still unsure At the risk of giving TMI, I got prostatitis from riding on rough roads on the OE seat with a taxi driver style bead seat pad. I am hoping this will prevent the problem form recurring. After 5-600 miles on this I am still unsure if I like it. It has taken some time to adjust the air level to an inflation that works and also to find where best to place it on the seat. It still feels a little odd with air shifting around down there. That said, no numbness in the butt cheeks and so far no prostate issues. Time will tell. October 6, 2013
This product can greatly enhance your comfort with a stock seat if you take the time for proper setup. I am using the Airhawk R with a Stock "Gel" seat on a Triumph Tiger 1050. This seat is already comfortable for approximately 2.5-3 hours before you could use a break. I've ridden 1055 miles in a day with the stock seat. The Airhawk makes it all day comfortable with very little pain/irritation. The key is setting up the air pressure properly. I overinflated the first three attempts and it was uncomfortable. The feel was sort of like sitting on a small beach ball. You would roll around the seat and forward in braking, obviously not enjoyable. What made it very comfortable was deflating to the point of looking at the cover and thinking "no way that's flat". Then sitting on it and being suspended maybe a 1/4 to 1/3" above the seat. This prevents the "rolling about" feeling and makes for a very comfortable cover that eliminates pressure points. If you bought this, or are trying it be sure to take the time to get it set right for you (it will vary for everyone). It's worth the 3-4 tries to get it right. This would save you a lot of money on a custom aftermarket seat. I use a KingofFleece waterproof cover for mine as well. (Revzilla, you should carry this awesome product btw!) September 17, 2013
Look for a better alternative! Definitely not worth the money. Don't listen to the comments when they say that you must have to much air in it if it is not comfortable. I tried it a hundred different ways and never found it to be much more comfortable than my seat alone! Save your money! Don't buy this product. September 2, 2013

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!

David L: I have the AirHawk R and a Sportster 883. I used the seat on a 3 day trip on the Blue Ridge Parkway. Very comfortable and made the ride painless. I don't use it for my everyday riding to work but if I take a trip that will last over an hour, I use it. I suggest you get one if you don't want a sore bottom. Dec 23, 2013

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

A shopper asked: What model should I pick for the BMW G650GS?
Is the Airhawk R for that seet shape?
Sep 2, 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

A shopper asked: Can i make it fit a passanger seat of an r1? May 16, 2012
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
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.

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 (0) 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.
