About Us

How did Wild Ass come about?

To learn more, we have to go back in time before Wild Ass was even a thing.

I am Craig Johnson, a resident of Minnesota, USA. I am the guy on the left! Let me introduce you to Scott Parman! Scott is a resident of Northern Italy. Both Scott and I were sales managers for ROHO, a global leader in medical technology that distributes pressure, providing patients unmatched protection while seated long term. We handled their motorcycle product sales.

Scott had a territory that covered Europe, and I covered North America. In 2015 the job that we both had intended retiring from was sold without notice. This left both of us trying to figure out what we were going to do since neither of us had a Plan B. Being motorcycle enthusiast with decades of industry experience, we teamed up and came out with a seat cushion that is actually made in a wheelchair cushion factory using medical materials using our own patented designs.

Customer Reviews

This pad completely paid itself off on the first half of the trip.

I just completed a ride, from DC to Minneapolis and back. While I didn't quite keep up an Ironbutt pace, I was very close. This pad completely paid itself off on the first half of the trip. Without it, I don't think I would have been able to keep up the pace, I would have been stopping more often and for longer from the discomfort.

A real butt-saver!

I had previously purchased an AirHawk pad, but ended up losing it before I could really use it much. The problem was the way the AirHawk pad connected to the seat was not very secure. The Wild Ass mounting system mounts much more securely to the bike. I have no worries about it disappearing. And it has a cooler name.

Only Wild Ass offers three different models using three different materials. Our wide material selection gives you good, better and best cushion solutions depending on your budget, average riding time, riding style and overall comfort needs.

Wild Ass Classic

Neoprene Rubber

Made with medical grade neoprene rubber the Wild Ass Classic series are the ultimate in comfort, elasticity and natural “butt feel” in a motorcycle seat cushion. Neoprene provides superior reduction of painful pressure points, promotion of blood flow and reduction of shock and vibration. Classic cushions are premium priced for frequent long distance riders who only want the best level of comfort money can buy.




Wild Ass Air Gel

Polyurethane + Gel

Made with three layers of polyurethane makes Wild Ass Air Gel more durable than Wild Ass Lite. In addition, gel pads inserted inside each individual air cell provides additional cushioning, shock absorption and vibration dampening. Air Gel can also be used without air when the rider wishes to feel 100% “close to the bike” yet needs some additional cushioning. A great mid-priced cushion for riders who have multiple comfort needs for short and long rides.




Wild Ass Lite


Made of economical light weight polyurethane. Reduces painful pressure points, promotes blood circulation, reduces heat and moisture build-up and lowers shock and vibration better than any other low cost comfort product on the market. Great for the budget conscious occasional rider.
