Custom Bike Seats: Low Seats vs Spring Seats

Custom bike seats are a very important element in every customization. The choice between a sleak low looking seat and a springed one have driven all of us crazy at least once in our lives. I therefore decided it is time to talk about seats and, for s%*&s and giggels see which one our customers like the most.

Low Seats vs Spring Seats

First of all I would like to state that comfort is not the priority here. When purchasing custom bike seats you know you are saying “bye bye” to that touring seat comfort but, trust me, it’s worth it.

Custom bike seats: Low Seats

Low seats have always had that cool look to them. It is like they have been designed in heaven to delight us with their looks. On the other hand, it is like they have been made in hell to make our butts hurt! Jokes aside, bikes with low seats have the sleakest looks ever: the sight of seat that perfectly follows the frame lines is simply irresistible to me. These seats only have a con…comfort. Let’s be clear, it’s not like they’ve been made in hell for real, is just that after a 3 days ride you’ll start feeling it a bit. A big game changer is to get a gel & memory foam padded one: your motorcycle would still look sick and your butt will thank you!

Custom bike seats: spring seats

We are in the big boys leage here, why? Because with the right seat conversion kit you can install any seat you want! Don’t get fooled though, with a great number of choices come great responsibilities! It is plenty of kinds of springs: hard, medium, soft; high, medium, low, and round, oval, scissor spings. The choice may vary on how you want your motorcycle to look but it impacts comfort as well. Is is important to remember that springs hardness may vary depending on the bikers’ weight. Choose the right spring, get a gel & memory foam padded seat and you will love every minute of it!

Custom bike seats: our customers’ favourites

I said that I was going to come up with a list of our customers’ favourites, so here I am!

Low Seats

Specific for each Sportster®, Dyna® and Indian® Scout® models, this seats made our customers very happy through the years

Solo Low trapuntata

It is kind of our best seller for Sportster models. Bikers love it because of how it looks, especially in brown leather: cream seams really look good on brown!
Customers find it comfortable for a low seat, and in 60% of the cases get it with gel & memory foam padding!

Dyna Low

Bikers seam to like this low seat for Harley-Davidson Dyna. Although brown and light tanned leather are cool, our customers like it a lot in black.

This low seat for Indian® Scout® models is a new entry and riders are already loving it. Maybe because there is nothing like this in Indian® market at this moment and maybe because it makes all Scout® look sexy as hell!

This seats have been driving bikers and customizers crazy since the moment they came out. Thanks to specific seat conversion kits, is possible to install them on Sportster®, Dyna® and Indian® Scout® models.

The most loved by riders and customizers! We had a a large numbers of customizers requesting it regular and in all its variants. Gietl Bikes always keeps us in consideration for his seat when its team comes up with a nes project. Customers appear to love it too, most of the times with gel & memory foam padding.

    I’m very interested in the Zuni seat with the foam and gel for my Indian Scout Bobber. I like the idea of a low seat but my question is will it position the rider closer or further from the handle bars? Thanks for any input.

      We haven’t actually notice any substancial change between the original and our. I would say that beside lowering a bit the seating position, it does not change that much the distance from the bars
