Sargent seat

Recommended Posts

Hi this is my first post so before I start I just want to say that I never use the bike off road. I recently purchased a Sargent seat from British importer Calamander who were first class with communication etc. Took about 5weeks to arrive. 

I found the original seat not uncomfortable but after a long day in the saddle I could feel a bit of discomfort. I thought long and hard about spending £349 on a replacement but took the plunge. When the seat arrived it seemed to me to be hard and thinly padded so wasn’t expecting a great improvement. The seat fitted without any complications and seemed well made. 

First ride out for 130 miles my left leg went numb but standing for a few moments brought it back to normal. Alarm bells started ringing,had I wasted my money but subsequent rides have worn/run in the seat so it’s now all day comfortable with absolutely no discomfort at all. 

Anyone thinking of buying one I would hole heartedly recommend it without hesitation. The only down side is it does look a bit out of place but for comfort it’s a win. 

Hope some people find this useful 

Safe riding 👍

I bought one, 2 weeks ago in the UK and sent it back

It fitted poorly and creased up in the middle, where you sit

Plus there was something under the vinyl, going on with the foam (with an uneven bit)

Pity, as both my other bikes have Sargent seats and I love them

May try another on the T700, if I found someone with one to fit on my actual bike

Dens - where are you based in UK, which county?

When I first used it there was something going on with the foam but having used it for about  1000 miles it has settled in and I’m well pleased. The uneven bit that you referred to maybe the part of the foam that has a piece removed to accommodate your coccyx or tail bone.  I’m based in Northern Ireland and you are more than welcome to try.

Aha, that would explain it

I wish Sargent UK had explained it, was for the coccyx..............I thought it was a fault

Unfortunately I am in England, so not local to NI

Can you post some pics of your seat, please

Photo as requested. As I said previously it does look strange but it’s function over form.

I see yours has a bit of a crease there, mine was worse with 2-3 creases on the same place

Ive had one on my t7 for about 1k miles now. Its is very firm but comfortable, I did a 325 mile, 6 hour ride last week and was fine. Hands down better than the stock seat. Even with the rally seat I was only able to make it 150-200 miles before getting uncomfortable.

Can I see how your seat fits on your bike?
