New Corbin Low Just Arrived

The new Corbin Low I ordered just arrived and snapped right into place. Will test this weekend and then will have a stock seat for sale off my 2018 CTX700ND

Let us know what you think of it when you've ridden a few miles on it. The general consensus is at least 100 miles to break it in.

Not to be contrary out of hand, but I don't want an apparent newbie to be disappointed by unreasonable expectations. Here's what the FAQ section of the Corbin site actually says about a break in:

In addition, Corbin's foam has a memory feature. After a break-in period of approximately 1500-2000 miles, the saddle will actually take on the shape of the rider which provides even better weight dispersion and custom fitted comfort.

Been there, done that and yes, it really takes that long, (but it is worth it, of course!).

I had a Corbin seat on a bike for 17k miles and it never broke in. It was never comfortable. Maybe it's because I only weigh 130 lbs?
Foolishly bought one for another bike, and after 3000 painful miles, replaced it with a Seat Concepts which was comfortable from day one.

Perhaps you are right. I weigh in as much as two of you! Maybe you should have hired my petite huge butt to break it in for you!

Well I wasn't looking at their website. So far I've gotten two bikes with Corbin seats already installed and don't have too many complaints.
