Sargent World Sport Performance Seat Triumph Street Triple / R 

Continuing in the tradition of meticulously designed seating options, Sargent is pleased to offer the Sargent World Sport Performance Seat.

Utilizing advanced digital modeling, computer design techniques, precise manufacturing processes and superior materials, each World Sport seat pan is precision-molded for superior fit and outfitted with high-quality hardware. Also featuring Sargent’s signature vacuum-formed PVC acrylic alloy seat pan, this super tough, lightweight material provides an exceptional high-performance seat foundation.

Gel-Free! Each Sargent World Performance seat offers superior comfort and suspension without the thermal retention and extra weight of gel. The Super Cell Atomic Foam suspension is a unique and proprietary blend of resilience, firmness, and vibration-absorption qualities. Most stock seats suffer from a crowned shape that centralizes pressure and creates discomfort. The level, wider and slightly cupped foam shape of the Sargent World Sport Seat distributes pressure evenly and eliminates hot spots for incredible long-distance comfort.

All Sport Performance Seat features marine-grade, UV-stabilized, color-coordinated upholstery - hand sewn specifically to maximize the qualities of the Super Cell Atomic Foam.

Features:

  • Widened PVC seat pan for more lateral support
  • CarbonFX vinyl
  • Super Cell Atomic Foam for improved riding comfort
  • Eliminates forward slope and provides a more neutral seating angle for the driver
  • Made in the USA

Comfortable, but with flaws
I recently purchased this Sargent seat before going on a 750 mile round-trip, knowing the stock seat would be too uncomfortable for the job. The seat arrived in just a few days and initially the fit and finish looked to be top-notch. Attempting to install the seat proved difficult, as the rear "peg" did not line up with the seat latch (it was about one quarter to one half an inch too far towards the back of the bike). I was able to maneuver the peg so the tip was at the latch and a swift thump of the pillion seat got it to lock.

Trying to take the seat off I learned that the key would not fully turn (thus preventing the seat from unlocking) unless I keep slight pressure on the key while thumping the pillion seat to complete the turn & unlock. There were several minutes of mild panic until I figured out that violence is indeed sometimes the answer. Given the cost of the seat, that is disappointing, but the seat its self is much better than stock when riding. In the past few weeks I have noticed that the seat is now a bit easier to remove and replace. I don't expect it ever to be perfect, but it's more tolerable now.

Pros:

Better riding position; much less sliding towards the tank when breaking.
Wider seat means more comfort on longer rides.
Finish of the seat (excluding the lock peg placement) is excellent. Looks better than stock and suits the bike.
No passenger grab strap (another good excuse to ride solo is a pro for me, YMMV)
Includes hardware to accommodate OEM pillion cowl.

Cons:

Seat pan does not have a spot for either the tank prop tool or the hex key from the OEM seat.
Seat lock peg out of position (several reports of this on Triumph sites).
Width of the seat puts a little more pressure on the inside thighs when at a stop with both feet down than with the OEM seat (minor, we're talking slight discomfort, not pain).

A beautiful seat
I decided to purchase this seat after having a sore behind from the daily commute to work over the summer. The first impression is one of quality. It's a beautifully put together piece and look and feel are both very high end.

The first ride was quite a surprise as it feels totally different from stock. It was much firmer than stock and you naturally end up riding further away from the tank. As a result, the riding position feels very different. This initial difference worried me as I decided whether I liked it or not. The seat also is a bit wider which means it's a bit longer reach to the ground at stoplights.

The best surprise was that I felt I could move around easier. This made shifting my weight on turns easier as I felt more locked in and supported. And while the seat is very firm, it never leaves you feeling sore.

Overall, it's a big improvement both aesthetically and functionally.

It grows on you
I bought the Sargent seat for my 2012 Street Triple R based on the positive reviews I'd seen in various message boards. To hear most people tell it, the Sargent will make it feel like your posterior is being lovingly cradled by a cushion of clouds and cotton candy.

Those positive reviews, I think, gave me somewhat unrealistic expectations for the seat and I was initially disappointed. The stock seat on the Street Triple is known to compel the rider into the seat, often uncomfortably. It's a very severe slant. The Sargent, however, feels a little wider and quite a bit flatter. That flatness allows you to comfortably sit away from the tank.

However, the "edges" of the seat feel quite a bit sharper, which can be uncomfortable to the backs of the thigh. That caught me off guard, and nearly resulted in me returning the seat. I'm glad I waited, though.

Within a couple more rides, I realized that I'd basically been trained to sit very close to the tank by the stock seat. Once I moved back a bit and realized the Sargent offered more usable seat space, I started liking it. And over the last week and a half, I've grown to love it.

For kicks, I switched back to the stock seat and took a quick ride this weekend, and I was aghast at how awful it was... and how much more comfortable the Sargent it.

I was expecting a drastic increase in comfort, but the reality is... the Sargent requires you to get used to it. I don't think you break it in: I think it breaks you in. Once it does, you're in love.

I only have two relatively minor complaints. First, I think it's a bit pricey for a seat. That being said, I'd buy it again, so clearly it's not that big an issue. Secondly, latching the seat into place requires more downward force on the seat before it clicks (as compared to the stock seat). Hardly a critical issue, but it is noticeable.

HUGE improvement for long rides.
I just spent 4 full days of riding in Deals Gap on my new Sargent seat and wow, it is a major improvement in long-day comfort over both the stock and Triumph gel seats. It also looks good to me, but it does change the look of the bike a bit. The seat gives you more room to move around, which is a plus, but that also means more room to slide around, which is a bit of a minus. It is slippery, and I found that I want to add Stomp Grips to my tank now to keep from sliding in really spirited riding in the twisties. Overall though, this is a fantastic seat and I think a great upgrade to my bike!

What the stock seat should be, but isn't.
Received mine last night and immediately could feel a major difference. The stock seat slides your junk up into the tank and gives a poor platform for your sit bones. This seat allows you to sit farther back and give some range of motion.
After eight hours in the saddle today I can say that if I could only have one mod for my STR this would be it.

If you find yourself sliding forward helplessly when you brake, or unable to position yourself towards the rear of your saddle, this is probably what you want.

Firm, yet comfortable
I bought this seat because the seat on my 2011 Triumph Street Triple R was killing my gnards (jewels). I could not ride the bike for more than a few minutes without readjusting my position. The option was sell the bike or try this seat. It is a bit pricey, but it was my only shoot at keeping the bike. The Sargent seat slopes away from the tank, putting your butt a couple of inches farther back in a sort of pocket. So, I do find myself reaching a little farther with this seat.

Other people mentioned the installation being a little difficult, which it is. The lock pin is about a 1/4" off location from the original seat, but that might be by design to keep it tightly up against the tank. With a little muscle pushing the seat towards the tank it locks no problem. Don't let this scare you off from buying this seat. Seat quality is awesome. It does not have provisions for the allen key or tank prop on the underside like the original. I have never used those items anyway, so who cares!

The seat is more firm and wider to support your cheeks. Also doesn't seem to be quite as hot when left in the sun like the original.

I have a Triumph tail bag that I thought was not going to fit, but it did. Not quite as nicely as the original seat, but it does go on. The big aluminum heads on the side of the seat are internally threaded, so the bolts that hold on the tail bag "wings" I'll call them to the seat thread into those. Don't take the big aluminum bolts out of the seat like I did, only having to put them back in again.

I think in the Revzilla video they mention a channel in the seat for your gnards, but the seat does not have any channel.

In short, it's a nice seat that is firm and much more comfortable. If you are in the situation I was in, give this seat a try.

Very Nice
I was very excited to get this seat on the bike after all the positive reviews. Now that I have been riding on it for a couple weeks I can say it was a huge improvement. At first it felt so strange and stiff. Its a little wider and that took a few days to get used too. With this seat I now ride back off the gas tank without any compromised freedom. At a stop, I position more forward and over for a stable footing. Its not the seat that compromises a good footing, its the riding position. That being said, the riding position with this seat is a huge improvement. Still plenty of freedom without all your weight seated at the center of your crotch. With the better distribution and better materials, I am no longer saddle sore.

No more smashed junk
The original seat on the bike forced the rider into the back of the tank, thus obliterating one's package, particularly in stop and go sort of riding.

The main reason I got this new seat was to remedy that, and thankfully it has. In addition to not sliding forward, I feel much better anchored to the bike through my bottom and legs in such a way that I noticed I am putting less weight on my wrists - thus giving me better feedback from the bike and better control.

The fit and finish on the seat is good - I would not say it fits as well as stock because I had to smack the seat pretty hard to get it to lock into its latch. But once its on it looks good, like something that could have come from the factory.

Time will tell how durable the seat is and if when it breaks in it feels even better.

Night and Day
The stock seat has so much of a slope to it I was crunching my jewels like so many others.I even had it modded to no avail! The Sargent seat is like night and day. Best purchase I made for my 2012 Street triple. Very comfy...worth every penny.

Amazing feeling but some install issues
Just received my new Sargent seat for my 2010 Street Triple R and as soon as i sat on it i could feel the difference in the riding position. I have yet to ride it on a long distance but i would say the other reviews about the riding performance are spot on.

Two things i feel i need to highlight though:
1 - the seat definitely makes you sit taller on the bike, feels like 10mm. I'm about 5'6 so i'm pretty short and i was already a bit on my toes sitting straight on the bike so i'm planning to adjust the rear height of the bike to make it work better for me. The increased height also makes you lean more on the bars.

2 - There definitely is an issue with the rear latch not being 100% lined up to the lock. When you lock it, you have to push down a bit hard on the rear of the seat to make it lock properly. When you want to unlock it, it doesn't come out easily. I found it came off easier if you push down on the rear when you turn the key, then take the seat off.

To me i still recommend this seat as i was already aware of the height issue and the locking problem is not the best but there is a trick to it so its not a big problem. The pros of the better riding position and comfort on longer rides would outweigh the cons.

After 30k+ miles on my OEM seat and many tears and rips, I looked into what seat (OEM or aftermarket) was getting the best reviews. Sargent came back positive time after time. So decided to see how it will do for the next 30k miles :D

Does the seat hardware work with the Triumph passenger seat cowling?
Paul S on Aug 14, 2013
BEST ANSWER: The OEM seat cowl does fit on the Sargent seat, but there will be a gap between the cowl and rear plastics. Search on triumph675 dot net for "sargent seat cowl" for a picture. I cannot post a link here apparently.

The OEM seat cowl also pushes down on the fabric of the seat which has resulted in a indentation/mark being left where the front lip (closest to the handlebars) of the cowl hits the seat. I've only had the seat/cowl for a few months, so I cannot say whether this will develop into a larger problem or not.
Will the Triumph Tailpack mounting harness (zippers) bolt to the underside of the Sargent pan as with the stock seat pan? Thanks!
A shopper on Oct 11, 2013
BEST ANSWER: I don't know. Everything is tighter in the fit. If you contact Saregent they will help you. I spoke to them befor purchasing the seat.

Also much better seat I can move around now. Seat looks good to, albeit not to much different.

Best,

Perer
Will this fit the 2014 model?
A shopper on Apr 23, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I don't know if it will fit. I can tell you it makes a big difference. With my stock seat I was good for 2-3 hours then I was uncomfortable. After 2 days of riding I was in pain. Now I can ride all day. I went from Datona to key west and back in 3 days with no pain. Good luck
Hi there,
I just want to be sure this will fit on a 2013 model STR. Any comments....alternatives out there? Hate the STR gel "upgraded" seat.....terrible rip off.....Also can I return it if I don't like the fit?
A shopper on May 10, 2013
BEST ANSWER: No, it will NOT fit a 2013 Street Triple/Triple R. I ordered this seat for my '13 Street Triple based on a call to Sargent. They commented that they had sold a few to '13 owners and had no negative feedback, so they felt it probably must fit. Got mine today from the good people at RZA and it does not fit. The 2013 chassis changes now have moved the hole to receive the locking pin on the bottom of the seat rearward, such that the pin on the 2012 seat is too far forward to fit into the locking mechanism of the 2013 bike. Big disappointment. As always, the guys at RZA are great and will take it back since it will not fit.
