Airhawk2 Cruiser Pad
Airhawk2 Seat Pad provides comfort needed and expected
I purchased two Airhawk2 seat pads for my Kaw Vulcan 900 Classic cruiser, one for myself and one for my wife. Although we haven't done a long ride yet, our shorter rides have confirmed they will provide the comfort needed for the longer rides. I first puchased a Mustang seat which improved comfort tremendously. But still for the longer rides there was some discomfort. The way the Airhawk allows the weight to be distributed across pressure points will be ideal to take the "edge" off those longer rides.

Great for touring
Bought this for myself but my wife went with me on a 5k+ trip this summer and she used it most of the time. She had to get on a plane and fly home then I got to use it...Really makes long mileage riding much more comfortable..Now will buy one for the passanger seat

good product, great service
tried the airhawk2 for a 5 day trip, each 300-500 miles on a sports tourer. helped to lengthen the time until next stop was needed

Light, Compact, Easy to Adjust.
The Airhawk2 Cruiser Pad was recently purchased for a 3 state, 19+hr ride.
The pad took a few adjustments getting the air pressure correct to the right feel. It took way less air then I thought it would, even after reading other reviews. Once adjusted properly the pad works great. The pad does not slide around like others that I've tried in the past. Also, it allows for some airflow to get through slightly, in turn your bottom doesn't get too hot; this helps with long term comfort levels.
I was hesitant with the purchase due to the price. After purchasing I am very happy with the final product.

An improvement, but not a miracle.
The Airhawk2 is an improvement over the stock HD XR1200 seat that I'm currently riding for long trips. But I have a few issues with it.
1. The hooks that connect the straps to secure the cushion to the seat are poorly attached by these ridiculous hooks stolen from women's lingerie. They often come disconnected during riding. When this happens, if you stand up during riding to stretch your legs, it WILL fold back or possibly even blow off the bike while riding. I have had it fold back twice due to the front hooks coming unhooked. Now I know some people will say that I should just remove the hooks and permanently sew the straps together. My argument against that is, I shouldn't need to. For as much as I paid for this thing, it should come with connectors that work.
2. The perfect air fill is difficult to find. It can take several minor fills & releases to get it perfect. This is not a big deal if you are going to keep this on your bike permanently. The problem I have is I want to take it off & roll it up for storage when the road gets twisty. This means letting the air out. Then when I put it back on, I have to go through the same long process to find the right pressure for me.
3. It is not great for severely twisty roads, especially if you're the kind of guy that likes to move around in the saddle a lot. The seat hooks coming off ALL THE TIME, does not help this issue at all.
Overall, If you are just spending a day eating highway miles just to get to your destination, this thing works great. It will really help fight hot spots. If you are commuting, doing an afternoon run or getting into the twistys, you'll end up leaving it in the garage, because it's just too much of a hassle.

An interesting concept, but
An interesting concept, appears to be well made,and it does what they claim, but it's ugly.

Best butt relief
It is better than your regular seat
If you feel a little uncomfortable you can move around a bit when you do long distance riding gives you a little relief
Well made and easy to pump up the air

Long rides feel softer. Less pressure below.
I put some air in this thing and made a difference. So I put more air in this and it became uncomfortable. So less is better. Just enough air to let it squish from side to side as you rock left and right. That does it. I would like the clips that hold it to the seat to be a better design. But they work ok.
