Touratech comfort seat for the KTM 1290 Super Adventure
Available in three heights
With its synthesis of precision craftsmanship and ergonomic perfection, the Touratech comfort seat for the KTM 1290 Super Adventure ensures a relaxed riding experience on long distance trips, off-road and in everyday life.
A super-powerful V-twin, an indestructible suspension system and large luggage capacity – the KTM 1290 Super Adventure is made for epic rides. Optimal sitting comfort is, of course, a must because every adventure rider wants to get off their bike with a smile on their face, even after hours of riding.
That is the Touratech comfort seat‘s raison d‘être. From shell to cover, this seat, manufactured with the highest craftsmanship, has been thought through down to the smallest detail. This starts with the foam core, for which no standard material is used. Depending on the model and the thickness of the padding, the specialists at Touratech‘s manufacturing partner, Crew68 in Murnau, Upper Bavaria, make precise adjustments to the firmness of the foam by individually dosing the components.
Model-specific seat core
After a careful analysis of the standard seat, the perfect shape of the foam core was determined in elaborate tests. All the weaknesses of the original were systematically eliminated. This included any annoying edges as well as any sub-optimal inclination of the seat surface. Like all Touratech comfort seats, the seat for the KTM 1290 Super Adventure has a precisely balanced angle of inclination that supports an upright riding position. By means of the seat surface design, the Touratech developers have managed to solve the annoying problem of slipping forward and to provide relief for the rider‘s coccyx with the typical groove. The reduced inner leg curve, in comparison to the original design, is particularly rider-friendly. It allows the rider‘s feet to reach the ground more easily while the seat height remains the same.
Seat cover with Fresh Touch technology
Touratech uses a particularly high-quality, bi-elastic cover material with Fresh Touch technology as standard for the comfort seats. The special finish of the material causes increased reflection of sunlight, which noticeably counteracts the heating up of the seat surface.
The seams of the cover have been carefully positioned to ensure that high pressure areas are left free. And unlike many manufacturers, Touratech tapes the inside of the seams so that no water can penetrate the seat core.
As befits a sporty adventure bike, the comfort seat for the 1290 is a one-piece design. It is supplied complete with shell, bypassing any time-consuming replacement procedure. And last but not least, the seams shine in powerful orange, paying homage to the KTM corporate colour.
