Best Seat for Heritage Softail Classic Reviewed
The stock seats on the Heritage Softail Classic is already comfortable, with proper cushioning and ample back support; you can never go wrong with that. But the problem with the stock seats is in the position it gives to the rider that tends to be a bit too cramped for tall riders.
The Mustang Super Touring Deluxe seat will move the rider back 1.75-inches compared to the stock seat. That may not sound much, but that slight adjustment will already give more comfort by giving the rider a more relaxed posture.
You can buy the seat in different options, there are solo and one-piece seat options, and there are also options if you want a backrest. The seat itself is made out of a high-quality material that won’t absorb water and will last long, even with frequent use. The seat will also have stylish machined stitching patterns.
This seat will keep a rider secured at all times as the fabric on the seat is not slippery or loose, the cushion is soft, but and the seat itself is wider than the stock seats. This seat is bucket-shaped, and it’ll make the rider sit lower, and with all these, the rider will be secured and comfortable, especially over long periods.
In the end, with the comfort and security it brings, the Mustang Super Touring Deluxe seats are best suited for larger and taller riders. And with the proper back support, this would also be best for older riders with back problems. Mustang Super Touring Deluxe will always be a great choice, and I’d highly recommend it.
Would a lower sitting position make your riding experience more comfortable? If yes, then the LePera Daytona Sport Seat may be for you. To start, I’ll say that this will give off the most minimalistic and the cleanest look compared to anything on this list, here’s why.
This seat’s base is a powder-coated steel base, also carpeted to prevent the steel base from scratching your motorcycle fender. The cushioning is a one-piece molded foam that is slightly on the firmer side. Covering the seat, you’ll find premium quality vinyl, which is guaranteed to hold its durability, unlike those other seats that’ll crack and peel off over time. The stitching over the vinyl seat is kept at a minimum to give the sleek and clean look.
The seat has a shape that’ll make the rider sit lower and, at the same time, get back support from the slope on the seat. And this design will be better suited for shorter riders. And this seat will also keep the rider and passenger secured as this will not cause you to slip off everywhere. The LePera Daytona seats will fit perfectly with most Harleys, and it’ll especially work with the Heritage Softail Classic.
Overall, this would be best if you’re chasing a very minimalistic look, or perhaps if you feel that your stock seats are a bit too high.
Riders and especially Harley riders will always appreciate some retro and classic styling here and there. The Saddlemen Slim LS Seat will bring an intricate Lattice stitching design that’ll be sure to attract some eyes on your motorcycle. Let’s see if this seat is for you.
In terms of the riding position, this seat will cause a rider to sit lower. The design will also prevent tension to the rider’s tailbone and lumbar, which will give comfort, especially on long rides. This seat will provide a similar position as with the previously mentioned LePera Daytona Sport Seat. If you’re a fan of that seat, then you may find the Saddlemen Seat more attractive with its design.
This seat will make you sit your legs narrower, and your legs may touch some parts of your motorcycle like the fenders. Some rider will feel a bit safer with this position. If you find that thought uncomfortable, this seat may not be for you and opt-in with a wider seat.
This seat has comfortable paddings, and the seat upholstering is a leather-like material. Even with the designs and patterns made by the stitching, this seat will still be comfortable with riders.
Overall, the Saddlemen Slim LS Seat will be best suited for short riders, and the seat will go exceptionally well with Harleys with retro or classic styling such as the Heritage Softail Classic.
