Saddlemen Gel-Channel Tech Seat

The Gel Channel line of seats for sport bikes are designed specifically for the rider that needs a seat that can do everything—canyon carving, track days, or commuting. Features Saddlemen’s Gel Channel (GC) technology (patent pending) that incorporates a split piece of SaddleGel and a channel in the base foam to relieve seating pressure on the perineal area, increase blood flow, and keep the rider in the saddle longer. Saddlemen sport bike seats offer high quality, light weight construction and styling that’s second-to-none.

The “Tech” style series incorporates high-quality, flexible fabric top covers that breathe well and are textured to allow the body to move on the seat for aggressive maneuvering. Just under the top cover is a layer of memory foam that contours to the shape of the rider’s body with additional memory foam in areas strategically positioned for maximum comfort.

Many Gel Channel solo seats come with a matching pillion cover for a unified look.

  • The best looking, most unique custom seat you can buy, with lines and materials designed to match specific bikes

Great Improvement on 2008 DL1000 (V-Strom)
This seat is a great upgrade from the stock seat that comes on the bike. As of recent I've started to dislike riding due to my old seat. I live a couple of hours from the Dragon - so something HAD to be done. This one makes a huge difference. My bike differs from the other reviewer's bike in that mine has a little more real estate dedicated for a proper seat, as well as I have a very different posture. My bike is designed for long distance riding - not day trips.

I don't think the other review is really fair considering that the design of the bike is already very uncomfortable to begin with.

The seat was not pleasant to install. My bike has a top case and that did not help at all. However, the stock seat slides on and off great. Maybe this seat will get better. However, well worth the little frustration to get it on. Very happy with this buy.

short sighted design flaws
This seat is a far cry better then the stock seat on my bike (bought for 2015 Ninja 300) . Definitely an increase in comfort... though I'm not sure I'd call it "comfortable". It's still hard, and my butt is numb after a couple hours riding.

I have had it installed 1.5 summers. The fabric is grossly faded & does not look nice. (was black originally, now a mucky grey shade.)

However, my biggest gripe about the design of this expensive after market seat, is that the seat fabric ( and likely whatever is directly underneath it) absorbs water. So... yep, if you live somewhere where it rains, and your bike is out in it.... The seat is soaked like a sponge. And stays that way for many hours. (*note, they do include a "cover" for the seat in the purchase, but let's be honest... do you run outside and throw it on when you notice it raining? Who has the time to do that? When you're at work? "Hold on! I have to go put my seat's raincap on!!!" And by then, let's be honest, it's too late anyways.)

Seriously. Why make what's supposed to be a super nice aftermarket saddle, and not put a waterproof fabric on it? WHY?!

I think this might be the most comfortable seat available for the ninja, but I would not buy it again; knowing this. It rains where I live... planet earth...

This seat is not for big riders
I am 6'3" / 250lb rider who bought this seat for better comfort for my "manhood". This seat actually made it worse, so I am returning.
