Air Hawk Seat

Just bought one of these. I got the Dual Sport model. Fits on my bike very well. You don't have to have much air in it, barely anything and sitting on it in my garage seems comfy. Have not tried it out on the road yet but first impressions are it seems really cheap. Feels like it came from the Dollar Store or Giant Tiger. I give the frail straps a couple of weeks max before they are done. I am going to keep it regardless and see how it holds up.

I've have had the cruiser R model for 6 years, thing really helps on all-day riding. You want "barely" any air in the thing or it'll be uncomfortable. Straps lasted until this year on mine, replaced the cover for 25 bucks.

Like other said very little air required, I bougt the less expensive one 5 years ago and it has held up fine. The straps just dont need any real tension on them as the rubber bottom of the cover hops the airhank in place when riding.

It does add height. I dropped mine when I was sideways on a steep incline because I was not used to the sight additional height.

Do not tighten the straps too hard. I did, and it left a mark on my seat.

Otherwise it made my 4 day ride very comfortable.

Just because I am Deaf does not mean I can not roar.

I have and will always have an air hawk. They are most valuable the last two legs of an all day ride.
