Can-Am Ryker Marine Vinyl Custom Seats by Ultimate Seats
Let's face it, folks.. the Ryker offers substantial "bang for the buck" and I think anyone that owns one will attest to that. The one area I think the Ryker falls a bit short is comfort. It's probably not the bike you'd pick if your original intent was to embark upon long touring rides with your Can-Am Spyder buddies... well that was until now!
Introducing our custom seat solution from the guys over at Ultimate Seats. If you're unfamiliar with Ultimate, these guys have been in the seat game for years. Ultimate is the brand we run on all our shop bikes, like our F3s, F3 Limited, RT Limited, and now are Can-Am Rykers. In our opinion, this seat is what's been missing to bring the comfort level of the Ryker up to the level of its older and "more expensive" brethren.
*Requires the BRP Max Mount for Installation - Does not come with the OE passenger footpegs
*Not compatible with the plastic shrouds that connect to the front of the stock seat on 2022+ Rally Models
The base pan is the foundation of any seat. The stock seat uses a flexible foam, while the Ultimate Seat uses an Injection molded foam reinforced fiberglass base so that the seat base doesn’t flex under spirited riding.
The seat cushion itself is injection molded from high-density memory foam, which allows the seat to not only maintain its original shape but also acts as a suspension system while riding. Once you sit on the seat, the foam provides both support and comfort making for the perfect ride. Then once you finish your ride the seat restores back to its original state, creating the perfect balance of both form and function.
Each seat is hand stitched to order and made with premium Marine Grade Vinyl. We have different vinyl color options available at SlingMods.com allowing you to order seats that perfectly complement the color scheme of your Ryker.
The seats are available in two different options in regard to your distance from the handlebars. The first is the "Reduced Reach" option. This seat option will move you 2" inches closer to the bars and is perfect for those of you with shorter arms and legs that feel that the factory seating position is too far back. The second is the mid-rider seat option which keeps your seating position exactly the same as stock. Now regardless of what seating position is best for you, all of the seats are designed with a nose-up angle and are cupped side to side, so that you sit in the seat, not on it.
If you’ve ridden your Ryker for any respectable amount of time, you’ll know that lower back support is an absolute must, which is why we have both an optional matching Driver and Passenger backrest. While the passenger backrest is a fixed-position backrest. The driver backrest allows for more than 2 inches of horizontal adjustment as well as a pivoting angle that allows you to fine-tune the back support pad where you want it.
Now, when it’s time for your passenger to mount or dismount the Ryker, the driver backrest folds down and out of the way allowing them to swing a leg over for easy mounting and dismounting, and can be completely removed if necessary with the quick release feature. The driver backrest also features a passenger protection pad so that under hard deceleration your passenger’s private parts are protected with some cushion. It’s all in the details folks. And lastly, the driver backrest includes a storage pocket so that your passenger can store small trinkets such as chapstick and sun tan lotion.
Now we know that the Ryker handles well and depending on your particular riding style, it's not uncommon for a passenger to feel uneasy, especially under spirited riding. So each seat features integrated left and right side grab handles to bring some piece of mind for your passenger on that next weekend ride.
