Cus­tom-seat Maker Danny Gray Teams Up with Airhawk for a New Level of Com­fort and Style

Ihave only ever wanted two things in a mo­tor­cy­cle seat: style and com­fort. Un­for­tu­nately, cush­ion tends to be bulky, so the com­fier you get, the larger your seat gets and style goes out the win­dow. Un­til Airhawk teamed up with leg­endary cus­tom-seat maker Danny Gray, that is.

Danny’s in­te­gra­tion of Airhawk’s air-cell tech­nol­ogy al­lows a new level of long-mile ride­abil­ity while still re­tain­ing a sig­na­ture cruiser aes­thetic. In true “pump-it” fash­ion, you sim­ply press the lit­tle Airhawk-logo-em­bossed bub­ble on the side of the seat. You can both feel and hear as air fills into the air cells un­der the seat. The shape of the seat works well with the Sof­tail line. A large panel pro­vides plenty of sup­port for the lower back, and the pas­sen­ger sec­tion is equipped with ad­e­quate pad­ding, while also not be­ing too bulky. Di­a­mond stitch­ing on the sad­dle gives the seat a nice time­less look with­out be­ing over-the-top.

This ’18-later Sof­tail-spe­cific seat ($549) also in­cor­po­rates Danny’s In­de­pen­dent Sus­pen­sion Tech­nol­ogy (IST), which com­bats the com­pres­sion and shock your body en­dures from rid­ing on a solid seat pan. With tra­di­tional seats, your sit bones pogo up and down on the solid pan. The IST shock ab­sorbers re­duce road im­pact to this area, pro­vid­ing more time on the road and less fa­tigue. HB
