A Choice Of Fabrics



IMPORTANT NOTE:
The two variations of seat (Standard CarbonFX or Special Edition/Performance Plus) 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.




All seats have the Regular CarbonFX fabric as standard; the Performance Plus is available for selected Sargent seats only.

The Regular or 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 and GRIPZONE for the areas down each side of the seat, in front of the Piping, where the thighs grip.
Smooth fabric is used for the side panels (i.e. behind the Piping) and for the Piping.
The seat also sports colour-accented stitching alongside 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 the rear Piping) and for the Piping.
The seat also sports colour-accented stitching alongside the piping.

DURATEX fabric has a slightly more grippy surface than the CarbonFX fabric.
GRIPZONE fabric is very grippy - this is ideal for those who use their bike off-road.


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



All standard seats have CarbonFX 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 is made using the Smooth fabric.


The Special Edition (a.k.a. Performance Plus) seats use both Duratex and Gripzone fabrics; they do not use CarbonFX.
Generally, the seat Insert will be Duratex and the front side panels will be Gripzone.
Depending on the model, there may be some Smooth fabric Panels as well.
