AirHawk Cruiser R Seat Pad

Butt approved. Works as advertised for me. Large size is a good fit for the '14 OEM seat. Kind of a pain to unhook the straps every time you stop somewhere. Straps really aren't needed as the pad does not move around. Will be replacing the straps with a single quick release lanyard just to keep it tied to the bike. Wallyworld pricing was under a Benjamin.

That's what I bought after my first ride over 20 minutes. I'm happy with mine too. Gradually decreasing the air volume every time I ride. I think I'm close to optimum now.

I just got the same AirHawk Cruiser R Seat Pad. I had remade my seat with a wider pan and new padding and installed a backrest, it did work well but the padding made it a little high to get on and off for me. I got the AirHawk so I could remove some of the padding, lowering the seat height. I then placed the AirHawk on the re-remade seat and tested it, nice. It does add to my riding time. So I was able to use less padding and still be able to ride longer. I have now, cut it into the padding and put the cover over it, when looking at the bike you can not tell the AirHawk is under there. Today is going to be the test ride!

BTW, The less air in the AirHawk the better.

I bought the Airhawk R pad based on many positive reviews..sent it back..if you look at ckrampers pix you can see it is too short to cover the entire seat..moving the pad forward leaves a gap in the back..moving it back forces me forward on the seat..no amount of air pressure adjustment can compensate for the undersized cushion...your results may very..

howdy, while not the air hawk, the gelpad i had on mine was perfect BECAUSE it left a gap for my tailbone toward the rear so i kept it forward to produce just that effect.

Don't know if I need one yet for my CTX, just had the seat reworked, but my NM4 has the worst seat I have ever sat on, and I wanted to ride over 1k this week on it. I bought a Wild Ass, a competitor, for $89. Went looking for the Air Hawk and they didn't sell it. FABULOUS! Not saying better than Air Hawk, works similar, only saying the air bladder technology is a joy!

I scored one out of ebay for 50 washingtons and now I can ride my daily 65 miles each way commute everyday without getting my rear numb... a temporary solution until I have enough dough for a seth laam upgrade. And yes, the less air the better.

What size Airhawk did you buy? The Cruiser R comes in large and small.
