Shock and Vibration are the real world forces acting on your body that cause rider discomfort and fatigue. Take a moment and think about your last ride and ask yourself – Are rough roads and constant vibration cheating me out of the ride I deserve? If the answer is yes, you owe it to yourself to read on and learn more about what Gel-Core Technology can do for you.
Newton’s third law of motion states that for every action there is an equal and opposite reaction. Understanding the forces acting on your body while riding is critical to understanding why homogenous polyurethane foam seats developed in the late 1940’s and probably on your motorcycle right now are preventing the extended ride times you desire. Saddlemen uses science to change everything by offering the Step-Up line of seats featuring our unique manufacturing process known as Gel-Core Technology.
Gel-Core is engineered to dampen, divert, and deflect energy through a mechanical process resulting in a smooth, therapeutic ride. Our technique combines a specifically formulated viscoelastic polymer also known as SaddleGEL with the latest in co-molding comfort technology to reduce engine vibration transmitted to your body by up to 50%, and reduce direct impact forces by up to 92%.
Saddlemen invented Gel-Core Technology and today we are widely recognized as the industry leader, selling more gel seats than any other seat manufacturer. However when it comes to the benefits of gel don’t take our word for it – Follow the links below to learn about some of the exciting places you can find similar gel polymers.
NASA uses gel to protect sensitive camera equipment on the Space Shuttle Discovery as it pierces the Earth’s atmosphere at 17,000 mph. NASA also uses gel to keep the International Space Station in orbit, gel is currently used in the medical industry for Wheelchairs and Hospital beds to promote blood flow, and see how a major league baseball mitt manufacturer utilizes this cutting edge material to dampen the impact of a 100mph fast ball.
Every Saddlemen Step-Up seat is engineered with Gel-Core Technology to provide dynamic support for the rider and fit differently proportioned bodies.
