Airhawk Introduces DS Comfort Seating System For Dual Sport Bikes, Bikes With Narrow Seats
Airhawk, Inc., has introduced the DS Comfort Seating System, a cushion designed specifically for motorcyclists who ride dual sport bikes or bikes with narrower seats.
Features of the DS cushion include a narrow front to match the seat profile of most dual sport/adventure bikes and bikes with narrow seats. A tapered-down front minimizes unwanted pressure on the scrotum, and a heavy-duty hold-down strap system ensures a secure fit to the bike. The DS also works well with narrow customized or aftermarket seats that have been installed for the purpose of getting the rider lower to the ground.
According to Steve Peyton, Airhawk’s director of sales, the DS isn’t just for dual sport bikes. “The DS works well with those hard-to-fit seats, such as the Harley-Davidson Dyna and Sportster models, where the Airhawk Medium and R models are too wide, and the Airhawk Cruiser Small is too long.”
The Airhawk DS will set you back $189.95, and is available now. Visit www.airhawk.net for more information.
