Macduff My ATAS seat was giving both me and the missus Monkey butt after about an hour in the saddle and my sit bones have been seat hardened by regular pushbike use . I picked up a Rallye seat 2nd hand (available from Rugged Roads in a couple of seat heights) and its been significantly better on the old backside despite it being a firmer padding than the factory seat.
Looks pretty cool too. though is a single saddle replacing both passenger/rider seats together however that for me solves the issue of needing tools to get under the passenger seat (or thumbscrews)

Volker Get a Sargent seat and buy from them directly. I bought one online from ebay first and it was a fiasco... .
So, call them and ask for a discount. I got mine with 10% off and free shipping.

Sorry havnt checked posts for a while but as you can see by the other posters pick it fits really good ,I feel slightly lower in the high position than the stock seat if that makes sense..and Its slightly wider, spreading the load.
I am hoping It fits the 2020 model just in case I ever upgrade as I love this seat.

Robert Detjen Thanks for the picture Motobiker - it looks as though it is the same height as the AT seat, which I'm fine with. I reach the ground flat footed with the ATAS seat on high - but I run it low because the extra leg angle makes my knees clear the tank cutouts a little better.

Motobiker I have the sargent seat.. the standard. in the high position there is no gap, but in the low position there definitely is.

Although the standard sargent has the same seat height.. it feels lower and i reckon is somewhat lower due to the way its dished, rather than flat.

KiwiMark Yep, Sargent seats are good according to my butt. The factory seat is fine for a couple of hours, but my butt says it is no good for several hours of riding. After 6+ hours of riding I find a need to stretch out my legs, but don't notice any complaints coming from my butt - that suggests the Sargent seat is a non-issue for long stints of riding. The forward slide with the stock seat doesn't seem to happen with the Sargent seat.

Red Maverick Thanks folks........you do like your Sargeants

Davy F Tried an Airhawk but didn’t get on with it...plus it’s easily stolen if someone recognises what it is and wants one badly enough.

I’ve had two Sargent seats now, one on my 12GS and the AT. Absolute saviour on long trips and worth every penny.

Any thoughts on a decent sheep skin option?


Anybody used memory foam?
