Biltwell co-founder Chris Collins created his seat pans to be both functional and comfortable. The shape and curvature of the company solo seat was hand hammered to include a narrow profile, a short, supportive nose, gently sloping sides and a subtle rear kick to keep you from sliding off your ride. The pan is stamped from heavy gauge high-tensile steel and features ribs and indents for added rigidity and stiffness. The four threaded mounting bosses are TIG welded into position and the entire seat pan is powder coated for beauty and weatherproofing.
The foam inside the upholstered solo seats is custom-molded, medium-density polyurethane padding. Not a shapeless wedge of open-cell foam. What’s the difference? You will know for sure after a 150-mile ride. Molded foam will hold its shape long after the cheap padding inside most solo seats has compressed into oblivion. Two cover styles are available: “diamond tuck” and “tuck-and-roll”. Each style is available in black or white vinyl. Covered seats cost $129. The raw pan with foam is $77. Order at Biltwell.
