Sargent World Sport Performance Seats:

Sargent's World Sport Performance Seats are made with precision technology and high-quality materials. Each seat is tailor made to be a specific fit for its designated bike model. The seats are made of an advanced Super Cell Atomic Foam that increases comfort, while avoiding the excess weight of gel. And they are covered with a marine-grade UV-stablized, mildew-resistant, damn near waterproof carbonFx vinyl.

The Sargent World Sport Performance seat is available in several configurations: Standard, which is designed to match the lines of your bike; Enduro, designed for dual-sport where you'll have to shift back and forth on the seat (it's also super comfortable for long-distance rides, whether on or off the road); and 2-UP, which is absolutely the best for long rides with a passenger.

Saddlemen is known for their special Gel Core technology and is the industry leader in gel seats. Their SaddleGel seats are engineered to absorb and dampen engine & road vibrations that are usually transferred in foam seats.

One of our best selling line is the Saddlemen Gel-Channel Sport Seat. This features a patent-pending gel channel technology that incorporates a split piece of SaddleGel and a channel in the base foam to better relieve pressure on the perineal area. In simpler words, the gel channel seat made long term sport-riding much easier on your crotch.
