Seat Concepts or Airhawk ?

Post by Beepee » Sun Jul 30, 2017 9:17 pm

OK, trip in September for 10 days down to italy and back ish. I'm back on a KTM seat (the ergo gel one this time)
It's still crippling after 100 odd miles which is no good for a euro trip.
I'm thinking the SC tall seat for value for money.
I'm considering the Airhawk for convenience and guaranteed delivery before we leave.
Any reviews on both ?
Any for sale ?
Thanks. BP

I can never get on with Airhawks, I just don't like the slightly disconnected arse/bike sensation.
Seat Concepts......the one on my 450exc is fantastic.
Have you considered Monkey Butt powder or cream? Or Moto Skiveez padded underpants? I've tried both and I reckon both help.

Probably of no help but back in 2005 I did an 8 week trip around Europe and when I got to Barcelona I needed to get back quick and did 1,100miles back home in one stint.
Being on the bike for those previous weeks obviously helped.

Airhawks are great, had one on my Explorer for the last 14k miles. Just have to get the volume of air right...

Another thumbs up for air hawk....used mine last month for a trip to Corsica and no numb bum.They do feel a little weird at first but didn't take me long to get used to it.
As has already been mentioned the trick is to put only a little air in.

Tried a sheepskin. Better but soggy when it rains.

Airhawk (thumbs)
Just been to North Wales and back. 140 miles 3 1/2 hour run in one go each way no problem. Made long days in the seat bearable. I had bought a Corbin but sold it as the Airhawk was much better

No idea on Seat Concepts in action, but I know which is cheaper... :whistle:
My Airhawk was bought in 2006 and is still going strong, albeit the cover has been repaired a couple of times. I have used it on 4-5 different bikes, covering at least 40K+ miles I expect.
As others have said, you need practically no air in it which seems counter intuitive, but works!!
