Ride in comfort with SunMate® premium cushions
High-tech seating material contours to body, minimizes road fatigue
LEICESTER, N.C. – Motorcyclists can minimize fatigue and ride longer and stronger with high-performance seating foam that contours to the body and absorbs the bumps and bruises of the road.
SunMate® and Pudgee® premium cushion materials are used worldwide by manufacturers, bike shops and do-it-yourselfers to improve the comfort and performance of motorcycle seats and saddles. The products are manufactured by Dynamic Systems Inc., a North Carolina-based company that develops highly specialized seating materials for use in military aircraft, heavy equipment, competitive sports vehicles and therapeutic medical settings.
“Motorcyclists need the same qualities in their seating that race car drivers, long-haul truckers or pilots need -- durability, vibration- and impact-absorption,” said Susan Yost, Marketing Director for Dynamic Systems Inc. “Riders tell us time and again that our cushion materials are the most comfortable and versatile on the market today.”
Made of high-tech viscoelastic polyurethane, SunMate® cushion material contours to the body and slowly springs back to its original shape once pressure is removed. Unlike memory foams made strictly for comfort, SunMate® cushions combine soft pressure properties with firm support for good posture and impact absorption, making it an ideal material for the wear and tear of the road. And its open-cell structure maximizes airflow and minimizes heat buildup, keeping riders cool and comfortable.
SunMate® is available in eight pressure-support levels, from extra-soft to extra-firm, to accommodate any body weight or weight-distribution need.
Riders looking for the ultimate comfort can top their SunMate® retrofitted saddle with the super-soft Pudgee®, a gel-like cushion that moves as the body moves. The breathable, open-cell material is cooling and promotes moisture wicking. Made of a viscoelastic material with a dough-like consistency, Pudgee® is a smart and affordable alternative to solid gel cushions.
SunMate® and Pudgee® are climate adaptable and saddles can be made waterproof or fire resistant. The materials are easy to work with, requiring only an electric knife and spray adhesive to apply.
Allen Austin has been customizing motorcycle saddles and seats at his shop, Mean City Cycles LLC in Maiden, N.C., since 2004. He builds between 2,500 and 3,000 seats a year for riders all over the world, and uses the SunMate® and Pudgee® foam products exclusively.
“Every person is different and has different needs, so every seat I do is different,” Austin said. “These foams are very shapeable and very workable, and the absolute best for what I do. The foam quality is so much better and more consistent than anything else out there.”
SunMate® is the flagship brand of Dynamic Systems Inc., a manufacturer of premium orthopedic and specialty cushions. Since 1969, DSI has been developing the most advanced performance cushion materials and custom-molded seating available for the aerospace, medical, heavy equipment, furniture, sports, veterinary and equine industries.
