The seats on a motorcycle are pretty much the most important thing when one thinks of comfort. Long hours on the saddle means the seat has to offer the right amount of support and cushioning so as to avoid the heinies from going sore. Now most of the stock seats on any motorcycle aren’t really the best when it comes to comfort and sometimes they do leave us wishing for more and this is where the Air Comfy seat pad by Grand Pitstop comes in.
So basically, this is an over-the-seat airpad which aims to reduce riding fatigue by offering more comfort and by distributing pressure evenly and thereby eliminating painful pressure points and numbness. The air ventilation reduces heat and moisture build up and the cushion absorbs vibrations and shock.
A highlight of the Air Comfy seat is that it can be inflated and deflated on the go and you don’t need an external pump or take the effort of filling it with the mouth. In fact, you can inflate or deflate the seat while on the bike with the inbuilt inflator and deflator.
Installing the seat is pretty easy thanks to the hooks provided and then all one needs to do is adjust the straps to keep it in place. According to Grand Pitstop, the seat is made of high-grade material that can withstand any climatic condition that makes it extremely durable and it also comes with an additional puncture fixing patch that can be used to fix any leakage or damage in the longer run. That apart, it also comes with a six-month warranty.
So in a nutshell, Grand Pitstop’s Air Comfy seat aims to increase riding comfort by reducing pressure on the lower back and provide maximum support to your Tail Bone. It’s also pretty easy to install and remove and comes with a YKK zipper and a rain cover. The Seat is compatible with all touring bikes like the Royal Enfields, Triumph Tiger, Harley Davidson, Bajaj Avenger and more.
Up next, we slap it on my Royal Enfield and see if it really works on my daily 80 km commute and on the longer rides.
