View Full Version : AirHawk Cushions

I've been toying with getting a custom seat for my scoot. Didn't find anything I wanted, so started looking at various pads/cushions. There are several types of gel pads, and someone mentioned an AirHawk. I was just about to order a gel pad when I ran across an articles in Motorcycle Cruiser reviewing various cushions/pads. Turns out they really liked the AirHawk, so I decided to get one.

It came the other day and I rode to work with it on my scoot. Wow! http://users.telenet.be/eforum/emoticons4u/love/639.gif This cushion is great. I haven't gone on a long trip with it yet; only 50 miles, but I'm impressed (and so's my tush). Scott and I plan on riding 200-300 miles this weekend if the weather holds. I'll give an update then.

If you'd like to read about the AirHawk Cushions (http://www.rohoinc.com/recreational/index.jsp), click on the link. They've been making cushions for hospital beds, wheelchairs, etc. for years. I found the lowest price on CycleShop USA (http://www.cycleshopusa.com/p2717.htm). It arrived two days after I ordered it.

Airhawks are great for long rides. My only complaint about them is that they damp out the feel of the bike in the quicker sections of road and can makde it feel "wallowing" if the air chambers are deflated too much. For longer, cruising rides, they're great, though. I would have bought one for my Magna, but I got too good a deal on the Corbin to turn down.
