FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
What material is used?
A non slip fabric call Carbon FX
What is the Piping?
This is the raised beading that separates the seat Insert from the Panels
Are Sargent seats the same height as the original seat?
Except for the LOW versions of a seat (where applicable) the nominal height of the seat will be the same as the original seat.
Do Sargent seats fit straight on to the bike?
Yes - they fit exactly the same way as the original seat.Sargent seats have all the fittings required already mounted to the seat
Will the Sargent seat be adjustable like the original seat?
Yes - what ever adjustment is present as standard will still be there
Are Sargent Seats more comfortable than the OEM seat?
Yes, they are. Most original seats contain a soft foam, which makes the seat feel nice and comfy in the showroom, but is not much good at long-distance support.
For distance comfort, a firm foam is required.
Are Sargent seats a GEL seat?
No. After many years of trials and testing, we determined that gel polymer products did not perform as well as our Super Cell Foam product.Gel displayed many problems such as heat retention, dimensional instability, and added weight to the end product.
Gel cannot be easily secured to the base foam resulting in joint bonding issues.After substantial side-by-side comparisons, Super Cell Foam has prevailed as the hands down favourite for customers from a comfort standpoint as well as functional or use standpoint.Super Cell Foam does not suffer from any of the negative characteristics of gel products as mentioned above.
Are Sargent seats waterproof?
Yes, they are. There is a waterproof membrane glued directly to the foam of the seat.This membrane is not perforated by any stitching.All the seams are taped internally.Therefore no water can enter beneath the seat fabric. The only location that holds water is the stitching itself, which is obviously very little and it cannot enter the seat.
Is there a 'break-in' period?
Not really - the seat will give slightly after a few hours, but that's it!Because the seat will feel so different after the OEM seat, it will feel slightly odd until one becomes accustomed to the different shape and feel.
