The Saddlemen Adventure Track Seat is a hybrid seat design that combines Saddlemen's exclusive elements of a GEL comfort layer and progressive density foam with a GEL-Channel design to provide Adventure and Dual Sport riders with unparalleled comfort and control. Rugged marine-grade synthetic suede resists the elements while providing the proper balance of grip and comfort under the rider's posterior.
The pillion section is covered with high-tech gripper material to help hold cargo in place and is shaped to match the rear rack's height for simplified cargo packing. Integrated bag or cargo mounting points on the pillion match Saddlemen Adventure PACK bags or use them to secure your own load.
Hybrid seat design combines SaddleGel interior, progressive density foam and a Gel Channel saddle to provide Adventure and Dual Sport riders with unparalleled comfort and control
Saddlemen’s Gel Channel (GC) technology (patent pending) seats incorporate a split piece of SaddleGel and a channel in the base foam to relieve seating pressure on the perineal area, increase blood flow, thus keeping the rider in the saddle longer
Gel Channel seats offer high quality, durable construction and styling that’s as unique as it is functional
The vinyl and rugged micro-fiber suede cover holds up to hard use while providing a superb blend of comfort and control (certain models feature a rugged gripper style cover)
Some seat applications, such as mid-sized Dual Sport motorcycles, have a standard foam design (no GC) with a gripper and vinyl cover better suited to rigorous riding
Integrated bag/cargo mounting points on the pillion portion of the Adventure-class seat sets make it easy to attach Saddlemen’s Adventure PACK luggage or other cargo
Most mid-sized Dual Sport applications also include a luggage/cargo mounting strap set that installs or removes in seconds from the seat
A solo rider-seat, rather than a full two-piece set, is available in some applications
Most seats are also available in low-profile designs
Note: Image is for reference only, actual seat may vary slightly.
Dissappointment with the Saddlemen Adventure Track Seat for the Honda XR650L
First, let me note this review is only for the Saddlemen Adventure Track Seat for the Honda XR650L. Saddlemen may make excellent seats for other makes and models, but I found their XR650L saddle was not comfortable for me. I am a 6 foot tall male weighing 195 pounds with extensive dual sport riding experience, including riding the length of Baja. Also, let me stress that RevZilla Motorsports did an excellent job of processing my order, packaging the product, and delivering the product quickly; however, the Saddlemen seat itself did not perform as expected and left me very disappointed. When I unboxed the Saddlemen Adventure Track Seat, it was apparent that it was constructed of good quality materials and had a sturdy design. It was very easy to align and mount onto my 2003 Honda XR650L and had no issues with fit around my oversized IMS fuel tank. Unfortunately, this seat proved to be nearly as painful as the stock seat after a couple hours in the saddle and I spent the last 30-minutes of my 4-hour dual sport ride standing on the pegs as I rode back into the city through dense urban traffic, rather than sit on the new saddle. For a comfortable perch, this saddle needs to be shaped like the seats offered for the XR650L from Corbin, Fisher Saddlebags, Seat Concepts, and Renazco. All of those saddle are narrow near the tank, to allow you to rail through the berms, but then flare outward to around 11" to provide suitable posterior padding for long stretches of asphalt. If you are looking for a gel saddle for short stints of aggressive track and trail riding with a duration of less than 1-hour, this narrow saddle may be right for your application. Sadly, I will end up throwing out this saddle and purchasing one from a manufacture with more experience with dual sport motorcycle riding design. Pity.

A shopper asked:I'm interested in the Saddlemen Adventure Track Seat and have a question related to water drainage. I ride in the Pacific Northwest and use my Suzuki Vstrom as my primary commuting vehicle. I ride on some wet days, so I would like to know of there is a way for the water that would collect in the center section of the seat to drain, or does it just puddle in the seat?Apr 28, 2014
Roger S:First the seat is top quality and very comfortable. Water does puddle in the center sections and the seat gets wet and doesn't dry quickly. I have a friend that has the heated version and he likes it during winter riding season, also the heated version dries quicker. One other problem is if left in the sun it gets really hot ( I live in the South) and doesn't cool off easy, so you need to keep it covered in sunny summer weather.Apr 28, 2014
John W:The cover on the rider portion of my seat was porous, much to my surprise. If left our in the rain it would remain soaked for several days. Also, it seemed to soak up heat and be way too hot. My solution was a vinyl cover I used whenever leaving the bike. In spite of these serious faults, I still preferred the seat over the original BMW as it did not push on my tail bone.Apr 28, 2014
adam j:I ride in the rain, but I've never had a problem with the water pooling in the center cut out. If you're wearing a rain suit, I don't think it will be noticeable. What is noticeable is that the "suede" on either side of the seat gets soaking wet and takes a little while to dry. So if you ride in the rain one evening, expect it to still be wet the next morning.Apr 29, 2014
Mark M:I live in Alaska & ride in the rain regularly. The center of the seat does tend to collect water but it seems to drain very quickly. The suede material can stay damp for 12 or more hours but dries much more quickly if patted down with a towel.Apr 29, 2014
Gregory B:The center section will drain the water, but the micro-fiber suede part will absorb the water. It will dry off, but if your bike is left in the rain and you go to sit on the seat, you will get wet.Apr 29, 2014
A shopper asked:Hi! What is the height of the low height version of the seat for a bmw g650gs 2011? Im a short rider and want to know how much can I reduce my bike height with the low adventure track seat.Apr 4, 2015
