A Choice Of Fabrics



IMPORTANT NOTE:
The two variations of seat, Standard CarbonFX (CFX) or Special Edition/Performance Plus (DTX) are identical in every way - the same foam, same moulding, same ergonomics.
The only variations are purely cosmetic, by way of the differences in the fabrics used.



*** SCROLL DOWN FOR IMAGES OF THE FABRICS ***

All seats in the Sargent range have the Regular CarbonFX (CFX) fabric as standard.

The INSERT is the portion of the seat the rider actually sits on.

The PANELS are essentially all the surfaces that are not the seat Insert

The PIPING (or Welt) is the raised beading that separates the seat Insert from the Panels



The Regular / CarbonFX fabric
- this uses CarbonFX fabric for the Seat Insert (the top part of the seat which the rider sits on) and regular Smooth fabric for the Side Panels and Piping.
- this applies for both Rider and Pillion seats.

The Performance Plus (also referred to as Special Edition or DTX)
- for the Rider seat, this uses DURATEX (DTX) for the Seat Insert.
Smooth fabric is used for the side panels (i.e. behind/below the Piping) and for the Piping.
Some seats also have colour-accented stitching alongside (or in some cases, instead of) the piping.

- for the Pillion seat, DURATEX is used for the Seat Insert and the front panel of the seat.
Smooth fabric is used for the side panels (i.e. behind/below the Piping) and for the Piping.
Some seats also have colour-accented stitching alongside (or in some cases, instead of) the piping.

DURATEX (DTX) fabric has a slightly more grippy surface than the CarbonFX fabric.

The GRIPZONE fabric
GRIPZONE fabric is very grippy - this is ideal for those who use their bike off-road.
Some seats on Adventure/Off Road bikes have Gripzone in the front, side area of the seat where the knees grip when riding out of the saddle.


All standard seats have CarbonFX (CFX) fabric for the Seat Insert.

All standard seats have the Panels in black Smooth fabric.

The Smooth fabric actually has a slight faux-leather effect.

The Piping (Welt) is made using the Smooth fabric.


The Special Edition (a.k.a. Performance Plus) seats use the Duratex (DTX) fabric; they do not use CarbonFX (CFX).
On these seats, generally, the seat Insert will be Duratex and the panels Smooth fabric.
