Motorcycle Seat Materials: Which Wild Ass Seat Cushion Is Right for You?

When you go for a long ride on your hog down the interstate, it’s important that your rear end has the best seat available. You don’t want it developing bruises or sores from the bumps of the open road. It’s also important that it can handle how often you ride it.

Lucky for you, our Wild Ass Seat Cushion comes in four varieties with three different base materials. The different types of motorcycle cushions all offer their own benefits in terms of ergonomics and comfort level.

Here’s what you need to know about the motorcycle seat material options and which is best for your cushion.

Neoprene Rubber

Neoprene rubber as a motorcycle cushion material brings benefits such as being waterproof and corrosion-resistant. It’s sturdy and won’t tear easily with extended use. In addition, rubber can handle wide temperature ranges.

The main problem with this type of cushion is that it’s not the softest one available. However, it is the most flexible option available and works well at absorbing energy that would normally go from the road straight into your lower back.

This is the best option for your cushion material if you spend long hours on the road or if you have back problems.


Another great option for your seat cushion is polyurethane, otherwise known as our Lite material. Polyurethane is a type of plastic material that can be used in a variety of applications, from packaging to adhesives.

As a seat cushion material, you’ll get something that’s great at distributing pressure and provides a more comfortable ride. This is best used by riders who only hit the road for a couple of hours at a time. It’s also the most affordable option, which means it’s a good choice for your first Wild Ass seat cushion.

Polyurethane and Gel

Our final option is somewhere in the middle between our other two options. The Air Gel provides benefits for both shorter and longer rides, as the gel helps to dampen vibrations from the road. The gel is spaced out so that you get even coverage for the whole ride.

You can expect a more solid feel than the Lite option due to the Air Gel being constructed out of three layers of polyurethane. We have also found that riders with tailbone issues prefer this material.

Finally, you don’t have to worry about heat issues with any of our seat cushions. They’re all made to prevent heat or moisture build-up.
