Stay dry with Touratech´s exclusive breathable seat technology.
Your riding gear is designed to allow moisture to escape your body but it can´t do its job in the most important area unless you have a seat that breathes.

Touratech Vapor-Flow™ Technology allows your body’s moisture to pass through your riding gear, down through the seat fabric and into the breathable membrane. The moisture then escapes through the sides of the seat, leaving you dry and comfortable.

Although the seat is breathable (allowing moisture vapor to pass through the fabric) the tight structure of the Rain-Block™ Fabric forces water droplets to bead up and roll off the seat. It’s completely waterproof.

Touratech has developed Ergo-Response™ Long-Distance Foam, which is tuned for comfort and designed to hold you in the optimal riding position. Ergo-Response™ technology keeps you on top of the saddle, not sunken down into it. The foam core is sculpted in a way that ensures there’s no pressure on the coccyx (tail-bone) and your weight is supported evenly for all-day comfort. The longer you ride, the better if feels.

DriRide™  Breathable Seats are available for many motorcycles, in various heights and also in passenger models.

    For the most comfortable ride over long distances

    Even the most terrific and exciting motorcycle tour can become pure torture if your seat isn’t what it really should be. How can you be expected to enjoy a relaxed view of beautiful countryside when your sweaty skin has gotten so sore in the worst places from bunched-up, chafing clothing caused by a poorly design seat? Seats from Touratech, which are developed and manufactured in southern Germany in close collaboration with the experts at KAHEDO, are the cure for this problem. They ensure a most comfortable ride even over long distances.

    Depending on the size of the rider and the intended use, Touratech offers seats in various heights and designs: from extra-low to high-rise, such as a sports seat for an LC 8 Adventure or an extra-comfort seat for an R 1200 RT. For instance, for just an R 1200 GS alone, we offer five different types of seats.  You’re sure to find exactly what you need, and you‘ll really feel the difference!

    Touratech comfort features

    • A special foam core ensures that forces are distributed evenly and prevents wear.
    • With most seats a pronounced hollow (depression) in the middle of the seat ensures that there is no pressure on the coccyx and weight is distributed perfectly over the whole seat.
    • A proprietary developed bi-elastic covering  material povides a better sense of security and inhibits sweat to a greater degree. The seat is perceptibly more comfortable. 
    • The seams are stuck and welded together to ensure that they are 100% watertight.
    • Great care is taken to ensure that the seams are in positions that cannot cause any pressure points on the thighs and buttocks.
    • Various seat heights are available.

    The result: a seat tailored to the rider and suitable for long journeys.

    Touratech: Since 17 Years professional Touring-seats

    Touratech seats since 1997 "Made in Germany"

    Touratech seats are already available for many models of bikes, with more to follow this year. They’re made of the highest quality materials and are specially designed to meet the ergonomic demands posed by long-distance touring. This means that pressure points caused by poorly designed padding or incorrectly located seams are avoided right from the start, thus ensuring comfortable seating over the long haul. A special foam core, made extra carefully by hand and designed to best fit the rider’s anatomy, ensures that weight and forces are evenly distributed to prevent pressure sores – even after many, many kilometres.

    In addition to their perfect shape, the comfort of the seats developed especially for Touratech is greatly increased by their bi-elastic upholstery fabric. Its surface improves grip when braking and accelerating and also reduces sweating. The result: The rider sits far more securely on the motorcycle and has better control in any situation. Even if other materials may look the same, they still don‘t offer these critical features! The seams of our extra-comfort seats from KAHEDO are specially treated to be 100% waterproof; the taut upholstery fabric doesn’t allow rainwater to collect on it; instead, it just runs right off. Our seats can also be used as separate modules because they fit right in with original-equipment passenger or rider seats. At the same time, the contours of the rear, pillion seats prevent the passenger from sliding forward.

    For many models, we also offer our seats covered in a patented “breathable” fabric, which much like modern motorcycle clothing lets moisture out yet is still waterproof. It’s the best solution for coping with heat and humidity, for it keeps underclothing from riding up, shifting, sticking and forming those pressing and painful folds and ridges. Tests in Namibia, Bolivia and Mexico have conclusively demonstrated greatly increased comfort in hot weather.

    Why no gel seats?

    In the process, Touratech is deliberately refraining from using gel pads as they prevent the air exchange in the seating area and lead to more sweating. In addition, gel is temperature-sensitive; it will become hard and uncomfortable at low temperatures and soft and spongy when it’s hot. All of this affects riding and the sitting comfort drastically. With the Touratech seats, an optimal distribution of forces is obtained by the outlines of the foam core identified by conducting tests.
