09. To help improve the long haul comfort for him and his wife, Dan ordered one of Saddlemen’s Explorer seats ($619.95 with driver backrest). The seat features Saddlemen’s exclusive SaddleGel. The idea to incorporate the proprietary SaddleGel technology into its seats came from the medical industry. The gel is used for wheel chair pads and hospital beds to prevent bedsores. Saddlemen’s SaddleGel is a molded solid with fluid-like properties that isolate common causes of rider fatigue and discomfort such as engine and road vibration. The gel evenly distributes weight across the seat to help eliminate pressure points at the hipbones and tailbone and improve circulation to eliminate hot spots. Both the rider and passenger portions of the seat feature SaddleGel.
