All Ultimate seats for the Harley-Davidson® Softail® are a 2 piece system, separate rider and passenger seats. Our Softail® seats fit 2018 and newer Heritage® and Deluxe®.
Our Harley-Davidson® Softail® Midrider seat is designed so you sit in the seat, not on the seat. Our Midrider seat will sit you at the same height and the same distance from the handlebars as the stock seat. The Midrider seat is 15 inches wide.
The Ultimate driver seat will work with the stock passenger seat, but you will be unable to use the driver backrest (see photo below).
The Ultimate passenger seat WILL FIT with the Stock driver seat, but there is a gap (see photo below).
The Ultimate passenger seat is 14 inches wide with comfort to spare. The Ultimate Seat works with the Harley-Davidson® stock sissy bar, however it does make contact with our passenger seat. We offer and highly recommend a sissy bar relocation kit for 2018 and newer Softails® that allows the sissy bar to be moved back 3 full inches giving your passenger the room and comfort they are looking for.
All Ultimate Harley-Davidson® Softail® Midrider seats have the driver backrest hardware built into them, so you can add the backrest at any time. The rider backrest quickly and easily slides in and out with a built in spring loaded plunger lock that is part of the backrest hardware permanently mounted inside the seat.
Detachable storage pouch measures 9"W x 6"H and is protected by the driver backrest built in rain flap.
The large Ultimate sissy bar pad is 12" wide and 8" high. The Ultimate sissy bar pad bolts right on to your Harley-Davidson® sissy bar. We also manufacture sissy bar pads that will fit other aftermarket sissy bars.
Our standard seat stitching thread color is black. Different embroidered logos and seat stitching thread colors are available. Please see Custom Options tab found above.
Leather seating in our homes or vehicles works well for some users however leather seats do not weather well left out in the sun and rain.
In my opinion, there are no advantages with a leather seat on a motorcycle.
Most people cannot visually tell the difference between our premium marine grade Vinyl and Leather unless they are side by side and then it needs to be pointed out which is which.
Neither Leather or Vinyl breathes except through the stitching.
Neither seats, Vinyl or Leather are waterproof. A Vinyl seat will let water in through the stitching and Leather will do the same and also soak through the hide if it gets really wet.
Durability is similar but our premium Vinyl will hold its shape and new look longer than Leather.
A rain cover should be used to prevent water from seeping through the stitches into the comfort foam.
We recommend you cover your seats with our waterproof ride on rain covers when your bike is sitting or riding in the rain.
Enjoy the ride again,
