No matter what type of bike you’re riding, the only real point of contact you have with that bike is – you guessed it – your butt. Ever since the first bike was designed, manufacturers and tinkerers have been trying to figure out how to make seats more comfortable.
Sometimes, they’ve done a pretty good job. Sometimes, they miss the mark. And sometimes, riders are willing to give up some comfort so they can achieve “the look” they want.
There’s just no way, for example, to make a 50-era Panhead seat into anything besides what it is.
On the other end of the spectrum is the undeniable fact that motorcycle seats are exposed to every element possible, from sun and ultraviolet rays to pollen and sweat. Try as we might, all of these have come to mean that durability is just as important as comfort when it comes to building a seat for a factory motorcycle.
But it’s 2019! We’ve put man on the moon! We have electric cars! Why are we still settling for seats made the same way they always have been?
The truth is, you don’t have to. For years, enterprising companies have been creating more comfortable motorcycle seat cushions – both as replacements and as add-ons – for bikes. The problem with most of these is twofold – they look terrible and they cost too much.
That’s one of the reasons the Hommiesafe Inflatable Seat Cushion was dreamed up.
The idea is simple and definitely NOT new, but like all great ideas, the Hommiesafe turned an old idea into a far better one. Instead of simply allowing riders to fill a cushion with air and ride off, Hommiesafe gives riders the option of filling the seat cushion with water, too.
Think of it as a “ride-on” air conditioning for those hot days in the saddle. Fill up the Hommiesafe tonight, place it in the fridge, and tomorrow, strap it on your seat and ride cooler. Before you do that, though, let’s talk about why Hommiesafe is not only different than other seat cushions, but why it’s so much better…
- It looks great. Yeah, this might seem to be a very subjective reason, but the truth is, many of the add-on cushions available to riders look like something Great-Grandpa has on his wheelchair. Hommiesafe has a unique look that gives off a custom seat vibe.
- It rides great. It’s true! Whether you fill Hommiesafe with water or air, you get a truly comfortable ride – in fact, most users report the highest level of comfort when they only inflate (or fill) Hommiesafe to about half capacity. Mile after mile, you have a cool, comfortable ride.
- Hommiesafe stays where you put it. Many, if not all, of the add-on cushions do one of two things – either flop around or require straps and tie downs that look less than appealing. While Hommiesafe does come with retaining straps, many of our customers report they don’t use them – the cushion stays where they put it and won’t move around.
- Hommiesafe is a fraction of the cost of the competition. Simple as that. With many aftermarket cushions over $100, Hommiesafe is one third the price and three times the comfort. Why waste money on a product you aren’t going to like? It’s one of the main reason Hommiesafe is so popular with bikers, even though its new to the market.
