The seat combines a Gel-Core interior and Ultra-Foam, for the perfect balance of rigidity and user compliance.
Gel-Core is the largest comfort advancement in motorcycle seating since the creation of the suspension. It’s a unique and proprietary technology employed in the front and rear to reduce tailbone pressure and increase circulation and comfort for both driver and passenger. We created it especially for motorcycle seats over two decades ago, adapting and improving a product that was widely used in the medical industry. It’s a closely-guarded secret technology that can’t be duplicated. Don't be fooled by other companies’ foam-only, or air bladder stories. We formulate and manufacture Gelcore in-house to specifically to dampen, divert, and deflect energy through a mechanical process resulting in a smooth, therapeutic ride. And Gelcore technology is why Saddlemen is the world’s leader in motorcycle seating, allowing avid riders to easily get more comfort and performance out of their motorcycles.
Ultra-Foam’s unique molding process creates an element-resistant self-skinning process that seals the foam from water and enhances the seat's durability as well as comfort. The closed-cell foam doesn't break down over time and shields your muscles from fatigue by dampening and diverting the effects of engine vibration and road impacts.
Hand made in California and featuring an embossed Hog Killers logo. Available for your Dyna, Street 750, and FXR models.
Installation is easy, with all necessary mounting hardware and instructions included. The Saddlemen Hog Killers Pro Series seat is the upgrade that will enhance your motorcycle’s appearance while instantly improving the quality of your next ride.

Selecting the proper Saddlemen seat should begin with the question, "How long in the saddle and riding style or preference?" Knowing the comfort a rider will need will aim them at the best type of seats for their intended use, and then they can further hone their choice by looking at seats that would that complement their motorcycle and 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 comfortably 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.
