Sargent seat pics

I posted this yesterday but for some reason it vanished (?)

Here are some pics of my Sargent seat - just arrived this past week and I had a chance to throw it on the bike and snap some pics.

It's the low version with heat and is covered in Carbon FX. Still no word on the passenger seat.

true. They updated the page, and I'm hoping it is a typo.....

I just received my "regular height" identical to yours on Friday as well. Visually, I can't tell any difference between the two, low and regular height. Impressed with the quality. The lean forward into the tank is definitely gone!!! However, after a few short trips I can tell it's going to take more time to break it in. Something I have plenty of...
Thanks for posting and good luck.

Out of curiosity, why did you order the carbonfx material instead of the griptek? I thought the latter was supposed to be cooler, and you live in Texas. I'm asking because I live in sunny (and hot) California and am getting ready to order one myself.

For me, it's the looks of the Carbon FX. Perhaps, Nexus-6 has a different response.

Congrats! Looks nice!
I have the same heated Carbon FX but regular height. Though my rear saddle is dark grey and look almost the matching at a distance.

Take care!

I have a CarbonFX seat on my Duc and love it - never had a heat problem here in Texas and love the look of it.

It will take some break in miles to get her softened up. I think my Duc seat took around 300 miles to feel comfy and not firm, but that's no biggie.
