LOVE YOUR BUM!
Our now famous range of DebbonAir motorcycle gel seats with or without covers is available in a wide range of sizes.
This Deluxe range offers you the flexibility of using the gel pad by itself for a number of different situations. It’s ideal in stadiums, on a theatre seat and basically on any hard surface. Many of our customers purchase extra covers to fit onto additional bikes and have the flexibility of transferring the pad onto whichever bike they are using.
How to choose the appropriate size for your seat. As a rule :
The Extra large is for the bigger touring bike (e.g Fat Boy Harley Davidson) and for larger customers requiring a longer, wider pad. (Illustration of the extra large pad on the seat below)
The large size is most suitable for touring motorcycles, (Illustration of the large pad on the seat below)
The medium is most suitable for sports motorcycles or touring pillion seats (Illustration of the medium pad on the seat below)
The small is ONLY suitable for a very small pillion seat found on some racing sports bikes or as a tank buffer to protect your private parts (Illustration of the small pad on the seat below)
We always recommend you take the measurements of the seat and compare it with our drawings to ascertain the most appropriate size. When doing so please note there are two types of pressure problems, the first being pain and discomfort from the backside (which starts from your Ishcial tuberosities, the bony parts of your bottom) but there are secondary issues. If you experience tingling or aching legs it would be wise to pick a larger size so the gel can spill over the sides of the seat and cushion the groin area protecting your nerve endings and stopping blood vessels being pinched, this also helps increase blood flow into the legs.
Under normal circumstances, gel pads will increase your riding height by approx 1 cm only. Our gel pads are approx 1.8 cm thick allowing the bottom bones (ischials) to be immersed and enveloped. Gel less than 1.5 cm will cause the bottom bones to sink through the gel and hit the seat thus causing pressure build up (and isn’t that why you’re looking at gels for improved comfort!?)
Please Note: As a medical company our advice on motorcycle seat fittings is restrictive HOWEVER over the years we have worked with some pretty clever professional fitters who have proved their weight in gold by repeatedly offering quality service to customers who wish not to install our pads themselves. If you want more information about one of our recommended fitters please don’t hesitate to contact us, we haven’t completely covered the whole UK but we are getting there. Interestingly, only today one of our fitters sent us through a picture saying :
Info & Care
Once purchased the gel should give you years of service, even when cut it can be easily resealed.
Should you have a change of heart and decide to put the gel on the outside of the seat you can purchase our DebbonAir Deluxe cover on this site. The thick luxurious Neoprene top is water repellent and any minimal surface water can be removed with a swipe of the hand. The base is non slip rubber. As for the strapping, this is 1.5 metres of heavy duty industrial Velcro for extra security. When using for the first time simply secure around the seat and cut any excess Velcro off. Wash by hand at 30 degrees and leave to dry naturally. Do not tumble dry or machine wash. (Include gel fitting instruction diagrams)
The gel pad. Do not wash. To clean: wipe with a wet cloth. If the pad is cut it can simply be resealed using standard sellotape or clingfilm. Always store product flat.
