Corbin Introduces Fleetliner Saddlebags for Can-Am Spyder F3

23 06 2015

HOLLISTER, CA – June 23, 2015 – (Motor Sports Newswire) – Corbin’s Fleetliner bags were specifically designed for the Spyder F3 to emulate the visuals of the bike and integrate perfectly. Notice how the lines and details of the stock bodywork has been incorporated into the design of the bags and they give a more balanced aesthetic to the bike?

Fleetliner saddlebags are specially engineered for each motorcycle so they fit the profile of the bike perfectly, like pieces of a puzzle. This enables the bags to carry the weight of the contents closer to the centerline of the bike and maintain a good center of gravity. Another benefit of Corbin’s design and mounting system is a smaller overall width for less wind resistance. You won’t even notice they’re back there when riding and they remain stable at all speeds.

Because the Spyder doesn’t lean in corners, we were able to make these bags larger than our typical Fleetliner bags…34 liters per side to be more precise. For those not committed to the metric system, that’s two and a quarter cubic feet total!

For loading, Corbin placed the doors on top of the bags and they open forward into the wind. This also assures that contents won’t spill out of your bags when you open them. The forward hinge motion helps the doors to self-close in the wind if you happen to forget them. Naturally the doors are fully weather stripped to keep the rain out if you should be so unlucky as to get caught in a storm.

Both bags come fully lined to protect your cargo and the doors feature adjustable locks for security. Installation on the F3 models is fairly simple and Corbin supplies all required mounting brackets. Saddlebags are constructed of Fibertech for durability and a perfect finish and come to you prepainted to coordinate with factory paint. We even paint the rear mounting brackets to coordinate with the F3 chassis!

Combined with our saddle system, the F3 becomes a formidable sport touring machine! Remember, although our saddlebags can hold an impressive amount of gear, it is never a good idea to overload your bike. Always conform to the weight limits outlined in your Can-Am owner’s manual to assure your safety.

Corbin Introduces Dual Touring Saddle for Can-Am Spyder F3

18 03 2015

HOLLISTER, CA – March 18, 2015 – (Motor Sports Newswire) – This is the most generously sculpted seating available designed specially to fit the F3 and provide the greatest ergonomic advantage for touring quality support. Wide, sculpted seating positions create a larger area of contact for excellent weight distribution. Shaped like your body to eliminate pressure points and give long lasting support that will keep you in the saddle all day.

150318-Corbin-Can-Am-Spyder-F3-2

Corbin’s rigid fibertech basepan provides a perfect fit and is built low to hug the frame and bodywork. This allowed Corbin to create a foam shape that keeps you in the sweet spot which provides a more positive feeling of control. We build this model higher on the sides to keep you in position effortlessly when cornering. Deep, supportive bucket design gives six and a half inches of vertical back support. All of this adds up to a very relaxed posture and comfortable ride so you’ll be able to go out and put serious miles under the tires.

Inside Corbin’s exclusive Comfort Cell foam provides firm support that stays resilient indefinitely. Corbin casts this special Closed Cell material nearly twice as firm as the stock foam to support your body weight. Soft foam allows your body to fall through it the longer you sit on it… once compressed, soft foam offers no resilience and you start to experience discomfort. That’s why we always say “firm is a good thing!”

Both seating areas are designed to work with an optional Corbin backrest for added comfort and support. Use a single backrest transferred front to back as needed or order two for full time use. Corbin backrests are fully adjustable to fit a wide variety of statures and riding postures with a variety of backrest models available to suit your taste. Internal hardware keeps a clean look.

150318-Corbin-Can-Am-Spyder-F3-3

All components include genuine leather seating inserts for a truly luxurious ride. For a very classy and subtle touch order your saddle all black or go custom with a wide selection of textures and colors available.

We prefer leather seating because it is durable, will breathe with your body and adapt with the foam shape as it breaks in. Vinyl side panels help to support the foam shape and keep the cover looking nice longer. A wide variety of color and texture options are available by special order at no additional charge.

Dual Touring saddle offers the option of electric seat heaters for an added bit of luxury. Wiring easily into your Spyder’s loom using the provided accessory plug, the Corbin seat heaters are controlled via conveniently located switches along each seating position on the left side. Heat level is maintained automatically by integrated controller.

This saddle is also available in a Lamonster Cut that was designed specifically for Lamonster at SpyderLovers.com. It feature the Lamonster logo stitched in the side panel. Please specify the correct part number when ordering.

150318-Corbin-Can-Am-Spyder-F3-1

The Can-Am Spyder F3 is the first seat model to use a live version of the configurator. The page looks the same as any other on Corbin’s site, but if you go to the ORDER tab, instead of “Add to Cart” you get the option to “Configure”.

More importantly, this configurator can be “Added to Cart” where the part number, price and complete configuration will be added to the order. It’s that easy to design your own seat.
