It’s known as a “circulator seat pad” (made by H-D) and it is wonderful. A seat pad that promotes air movement and reduces heat build-up. I had read about a seat pad that was capable of reducing heat build-up when the body touches the seat, and I’ll admit, I was skeptical.
One hot summer day a few years ago in Gettysburg, PA it was really hot. When I say hot, think 100 degrees or as Eugene so aptly stated in Biloxi Blues, “It’s like Africa hot. Tarzan couldn’t take this kind of hot.” Well, that’s exactly what I was thinking on this particular day when we stopped by Battlefield Harley-Davidson in Gettysburg, PA.
I purchased the circulator seat pad, put it on my Street Bob and headed East. Yes, it did promote air movement. On that particular day, I was already overheated. On a fresh day, it does reduce heat build up. Now, I take it everywhere.
Another handy use, should my bike seat get wet from a rain shower, I put the circulator seat pad on it and it protects those parts that touch the seat from getting damp.
If you are riding on a circulator seat pad or have tried one, please leave a review. I look forward to your review!
