Heat up your ride with our one-piece Profiler Tattoo seat design for Harley-Davidson®.

Profiler Tattoo is the ultimate low-profile, slammed seat for two with our custom Tattoo flame and 3-D effect stitch pattern. The Profiler incorporates our Integrated Design Philosophy (IDP™), which takes styling cues from each motorcycle and incorporates them into the contours and patterns of each seat. What you get is a seat that looks and fits perfectly on your bike - no generic, “one size fits all” styling.

The Profiler Tattoo offer a great looking seat which is a more comfortable ride that is noticeable from the moment you get on. Why?

Almost two decades ago, Saddlemen® was the innovator of SaddleGel™ for motorcycle seats, bringing over a gel technology widely used in medical applications. Now widely copied, but not duplicated, SaddleGel™ provides undisputable comfort.

Adding to the comfort is our unique SaddleHyde™ covering, a glove-soft that has the right amount of stretch built in to make better use of the SaddleGel™ underneath.

Saddlemen® has engineered the perfect and only matched motorcycle seating foam that works in conjunction with SaddleGel™ and SaddleHyde™ for maximum riding distance and pleasure. Saddlemen’s® proprietary Profoam™ with its high resilient properties maximizes your motorcycles suspension package by collapsing just enough to conform to the rider’s body shape. In turn it helps to equalize the pressure to allow good blood flow. Combined with our precisely engineered molding cavities, our 3 part system is carefully molded with a skin that resists penetration by rain or perspiration. All completed in house under the careful supervision of train technicians to guarantee a perfectly contoured seat with every pour.

  • Specially designed seat pan mates perfectly with the shape of the bike which gives you the look you want
  • Narrow styling, a thin profile and low riding height. Specially designed base allows the seat to drop down into the bike for the lowest riding position possible
  • Surprisingly comfortable pilot perch is made with Saddlemen’s® famous combination of progressive density foam and SaddleGel™ in the driver's position, easing tailbone pressure and improving circulation for a smooth, comfortable ride
  • Made with glove-soft, genuine Saddlehyde seating surface for luxurious comfort
  • Colored flame stitching. Your choice of 12 colors
  • All Saddlemen® Seats are Designed and Made in the U.S.A.

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 assures 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 after market 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. ese 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 comfort of the original saddle,  these seats aim for 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.

Café Seats

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.
