The AirRider Dry Flotation motorcycle seat system is a revolutionary accessory in riding comfort representing an evolution from the original Airhawk comfort seat.

Now also available in an office / car / wheel chair configuration.

Upgrades include a tough, abrasion resistant  TPU inner and an enhanced breathable outer mesh, suitable for long hot days in the saddle.

How does it work?

The Desert Fox AirRider Dry Fotation system uses supple interconnecting air cells that adjust as you move, cushioning your ride as well spreading the load across the entire seating area.

Successfully used for many years by the medical industry (wheelchair and bed ridden patients) & the aviation industry (long distance pilots) it is now available in a motorcycle configuration.

This Dry Flotation technology has been scientifically tested and proven effective in 100+ medical trials and papers.

Fitment is a simple task making it ideal for long distance motorcycle touring. Removal is as simple for use in other areas.

And doesn’t degrade or lose shape over time, unlike cushions made with gels and foams.

A must have motorcycle comfort accessory!

On any standard touring seat, pressure points build where you make contact with the seat, cutting off your blood supply to your buttocks and legs as well as increasing the risk of circulatory problems. No matter how soft the seat is, your weight will compress and stiffen the foam, which removes any shock absorbing benefit.

Ultimately your spine ends up becoming a shock absorber.

With the AirRider’s  DRY FLOTATION system, painful pressure and shock points are removed through the promotion of consistent blood flow for a longer more comfortable ride.

The last mile truly does feel like the first.

The remarkable difference between the AirRider DRY FLOTATION system and conventional gel / memory foam seat systems can best be illustrated as follows: Imagine placing a gel pad over rough ground and then lying down on it. You would still feel the rocks and ground imperfections underneath.

However, if you were floating in a shallow swimming pool you would not feel the rocks and rough ground beneath you. Such a floating sensation is the essence of the DRY FLOTATION system and is achieved via a unique handmade air cell cushion.

Memory foam compressors. Gel seats generate heat and moisture.

The Airider does neither, ensuring maximum comfort.

The red and yellow areas on the left ultra-scan indicate uncomfortable pressure points with a Gel / Memory Foam seat. The Dry Flotation AirRider on the right virtually eliminates pressure points allowing for greatly improved blood circulation.

Small interconnected air cells evenly distribute your weight and pressure over the whole cushion, reducing the “hot spots” that cause pain. The air cells also work as mini shock absorbers, reducing vibration.

Once you’ve tried it, you won’t ride without it.

Each cushion is individually handcrafted . The process involves repeated dipping of the waffle mould into a proprietary solution followed by a combination of air and oven curing. The cells thus formed are then attached to the backing, making sure each cell remains connected to its neighbours. The process is undertaken by hand requiring 24 working hours to complete each cushion.

The entire air cell is manufactured from abrasion resistant TPU to the highest of tolerances.

The cover of the AirRider has been completely upgrade with open mesh panels on the top & side  allowing air to circulate between the air cells and out of the  cushion, reducing heat build-up to keep you cool and dry.

The inner has been also upgraded from the original AIRHAWK’S polyurethane to a much thicker abrasion resistant TPU while the cover material is made of a quick-dry air mesh, just in case it gets rained upon.
