Comment: This is my second Airhawk 2. I bought one for myself not wanting to spend the money for a second one until I tried it out. It didn't take long to be able to tell that my Airhawk 2 not only prevented "Butt fatigue" but made riding much cooler in hot weather. As winter came on, I also found insulating qualities from the cushion in cold weather. The biggest surprise is that the seat heater on my Goldwing GL1800 works just fine with the cushion in place. Now my wife will be just as comfortable in the back seat. Jafrum is always a pleasure with which to do business. They have great specials, fast, often free shipping, and top quality products. Another plus is that Jafrum is an American company.
Lots of riders have been there. You’re still two good hours away from your
destination and it feels like you’ve ridden the last hundred miles on a bed of
hot gravel. The constant pressure and lack of circulation is ruining your ride.
You’ve tried gel inserts, foam pads, and even high dollar complete seat
replacements. Still, the scenery and comradery of a long ride is just not worth
the discomfort. This is more common than many riders want to admit and keeps
some from riding at all. Well, guess what? Now there’s a solution; the Airhawk
line of motorcycle seat cushions.
The Airhawk’s Shape Fitting Technology was originally developed for wheelchair
users to equalize surface pressure. They soon realized that this design also
offers vibration control and shock absorbtion. This technology proved very
useful in the trucking industry and soon found its way to motorcycling.
The Airhawk seat cushions are available in three series or versions and have
multiple sizes and shapes within each series; the original
economical Airhawk 2, and the premium Airhawk R. Not all sizes and shapes are
available in all versions, though, so make sure you double check the dimensions
on the listing to make sure the Airhawk seat cushion you choose will fit on your
The main difference between the Airhawk and the Airhawk 2 is the material the
cells are made of. The original Airhawk is made of neoprene rubber. This
material has a very heavy duty feel and has some stretchiness. The Airhawk 2 is
made of polyurethane. This material is lighter and thinner and a lot less
stretchy. The Airhawk 2 is still much better than most any other type of cushion
and is economically priced, but for the longer distance rider, the original
Airhawk or the Airhawk R is going to be well worth the extra investment.
The Airhawk R uses the same high quality neoprene as the original Airhawk but
has an updated cell arrangement. This new configuration has been designed
specifically for motorcycling and alleviates almost all the pressure on easily
irritated rider parts.
All of these styles also offer improved circulation over other seat covers. This
reduces numbness in the toes and keeps you tuned in to your foot controls. The
improved airflow throughout the seating area also helps manage moisture which
allows your wicking undergarments to perform at very high levels. This may help
to reduce chaffing and sore skin.
There are a couple of ways to install these cushions. If you have an easily
removable seat you use the loops on all four corners and the provided straps to
attach the cushion then replace the seat. If your seat is bolted on, you use
only one of the straps and the front two loops. Slide the strap over the front
of your seat and your almost ready. Remove the Airhawk from its cover. Open the
valve and blow about a half of a breath into it. Quickly close the valve.
Reinstall the Airhawk into its cover and sit on your bike. Reopen the valve to
let air out until you can just barely feal the cusion between you and your seat.
When it's properly inflated it will look almost flat. All in all, the Airhawk
line of motorcycle seat cushions sets the bar for riding comfort and once you
ride with one you’ll be making excuses to go the long way home.
