Introducing the Saddlemen Roadsofa-CF – the newest addition to our Long Distance Two-Up Touring Collection – made with all the quality and comfort you have come to expect from Saddlemen it’s the ideal saddle for long rides with a passenger.
If you want to ride five hundred or more miles a day, this is the right choice for you. The Rodasofa-CF includes our exclusive Gelcore Technology in the driver and passenger seating areas along with a streamlined nose that improves the rider's reach to the ground. And the split-cushion lumbar design will prevent the uncomfortable hammocking effect that occurs in most OEM and aftermarket seats.
Saddlemen invented GELcore Technology and today we're widely recognized as the industry leader, producing more gel seats than any other manufacturer. Far superior to foam-only seating options, the combination of our Progressive Density Foam and SaddleGel provides indisputable comfort, deflecting impact forces and reducing road vibration, easing pressure on your tailbone and improving circulation, increasing long-range ride comfort for both driver and passenger.
An expertise in chemistry and 30 years of road testing is behind the formulation of the Progressive Density Foam that surrounds the Roadsofa-CF’s GELcore. Carefully composed so you feel the benefits of a supple foam that becomes more supportive as it’s compressed. Varied cell sizes and a soft outer skin protects the foam’s interior from water and other elements which enhances the seat’s durability as well as comfort.
Wrapped in a proprietary cover material that tests better than marine-grade vinyl and has just the right amount of stretch, creating an attractive combination of comfort, soft feel, and weather-resistant, no-maintenance good looks.
The Roadsofa-CF is available in an extended reach version for the taller rider who wants to sit back a little farther. Also available are several upgrade options like a driver’s backrest, dual-stage heaters for the rider and passenger, trunk pad covers, and more.

The Roadsofa™ is crafted specifically for riders that love lay down 500+ miles of the open road in a day. It is the ultimate long-distance touring seat for Harley-Davidson touring models. Standard features include rider and passenger Gelcore™ Technology, a split-cushion lumbar area designed to sit you into the Gelcore™ instead of hammocking your body onto the cover like most OEM and aftermarket seats on the market.

Our Gelcore™ Technology (explained) is a guarded company secret that no other manufacturer can duplicate. Don't be fooled by other companies foam only, air and gel stories. Our Gelcore™ is formulated and manufactured in house and is engineered to dampen, divert, and deflect energy through a mechanical process resulting in a smooth, therapeutic ride.

RoadSofa CF: Installation Overview (HD)
Selecting the proper Saddlemen seat should begin with the question, “How many miles do I ride in the day, and what is my riding style or preference?” Understanding these questions can guide you to the best type of seat for its intended use, then further hone the choice by looking at a seat that would complement the motorcycle or your styling preference.
Saddlemen seats are a result of Integrated Design Philosophy (IDP™), which focuses on putting as much comfort into the seat as possible. IDP™ then takes styling cues from each motorcycle and incorporates them into the contours and patterns of each new seat. The result is a seat that is as comfortable as possible but also looks and fits perfectly on the motorcycle. Saddlemen’s craftsmanship and quality assure you of an enjoyable ride – regardless of the distance.
By combining the attributes of our proprietary SaddleGel and advanced Progressive Density Foam, we create exceptional foundations that provide superior comfort and vehicle control. While thick seat foams are usually more comfortable, Saddlemen’s Gel-Core technology is used in every seat to produce excellent comfort regardless of its thickness. That’s why a slammed-down Saddlemen seat, such as the Profiler, rides so much more comfortable than other seats of a similar thickness. So if a thin Saddlemen seat is comfortable, imagine how plush a thick seat like a Road Sofa or an Explorer will be.
When creating a new seat, additional attention is always devoted to overcoming deficiencies that exist in the stock seat or other aftermarket seats. Our designers use advanced engineering plus practical riding experience to forge seats that ride comfortably, look great, and fit perfectly. For example, rigid plastic or resin-based seat pans with plated brackets provide superior fitment for easy, hassle-free installation. Riders will need to carefully study the attributes of each Saddlemen seat so they can learn how it can improve their riding experience. These seat types are:
Seats for Long Distance or “Touring”
These seats are aimed at users who will lay down 500+ miles open road in a day. Large, plush double bucket seats designed to keep rider and passenger in supreme comfort during long-distance riding.
Day Cruising Two-up Seats
These seats are great for cruising and day trips (200-mile tours). Still a significant improvement in the comfort of the original saddle, these seats aim for a balance between style and comfort, making for an enjoyable journey.
Low Profile Two-up Seats
Low slung trim, stylish seats that include seating for a passenger. The lean and minimalistic approach significantly complements the motorcycle’s lines. Not as well suited for long-distance use as an Explorer seat, but they are the most comfortable slammed-down seats you can get. Great for (urban) boulevard cruising.
Renegade Solo & Pillions
These Rider-only seats are also great for cruising and day trips as they provide a superb level of comfort while looking great as only a solo saddle can. Matching pillion seats are available.
Slammed Solo's (S3) Seats
Low slung trim, stylish seats for lone riders. The lean and minimalistic style complements the motorcycle’s lines. Not as well suited for long-distance use as an Explorer seat, but they are the most comfortable slammed-down seats you can get. Great for casual riding (no backrest options - see Universal Detachable Pillions Pad for passenger seating).
Pro Series Seats
Saddlemen’s seat artisans occasionally partner with leading bike builders to create special edition seats. Not as well suited for long-distance use as an Explorer seat, but very comfortable for urban cruising with a unique appearance.
Specialty rider-only seats that feature the ubiquitous hump at the back of the seat. While aimed at style, the seat is very comfortable for urban cruising.
