Spyder F3 Seat and Passenger Backrest
The stock O.E.M. seat on the F3, F3-S and F3-T is a 2-piece driver/passenger system. Ultimate F3 seat was designed as a 1-piece system and installs/removes the same with the stock key latch.
Our one pc seat makes installing and removal of the seats much easier and faster, no bolts to remove just unlatch with the key and lift off.
The driver section of the seat is 17 inches wide. The passenger section is 15 inches wide with comfort to spare. This seat fits with all Can-Am® passenger backrests and trunks.
Our Spyder F3 Midrider seat is designed so you sit in the seat, not on the seat. Our Midrider measures to sit you approximately the same height as the stock seat and the same distance from the handlebars as the stock O.E.M. seat.
Our Spyder F3 Tall Boy seat is designed so you sit in the seat, not on the seat. Our Tall Boy measures to sit you approximately the same height as the stock seat and 1" further back from the handlebars than the stock O.E.M. seat.
Both seats have a built in 6 inches high lower back support, so when you twist that throttle open the seat gives you full support.
Ultimate Removable Driver Backrest
All Ultimate F3 seats have the driver backrest hardware built into them, so you can add the backrest at any time. The driver 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.
- Pad measures 7" high by 10" wide by 1.5" thick.
- Built using the same memory foam as our seats.
- Infinite tilt to match your back angle.
- Backrest folds down forward for easily mounting and dismounting your bike.
- Adjustment forward and back is more than 2 inches.
- Adjusts with a thumb screw while you're riding.
- No need to remove the seat or use a wrench.
- Includes zipper storage pouch that velcros to the back of the backrest.
Detachable storage pouch measures 9"W x 6"H and is protected by the driver backrest built in rain flap.
Ultimate Passenger Backrest
For F3, F3-S and F3-T models that did not come with a trunk, we offer an optional passenger backrest built into our passenger seat. Our passenger backrest provides one inch more room for the passenger than the Can-Am® quick release backrest. If you order a F3 seat with a passenger backrest, the seat will have the receiving bracket built in. If you do not order a F3 seat with a passenger backrest, the seat will not have a receiving bracket built in.
Note: Ultimate Spyder F3 seats are built without the passenger backrest bracket, if you require our passenger backrest, it must be ordered with the seat.
Heated Seat Option
We offer both heated and non-heated seats. We supply a jumper with all heated seats that plug into the factory accessory plug. There are two separate switches that control front and rear indpendently.
Leather Versus Vinyl and Rain Covers
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,
