Now sitting at 31.7 inches tall, this seat height is ideal for me. My legroom increased from 18.6 inches (stock) to 20.6 inches, and my knees feel so much better! The Slammer name is apropos, however, as this seat is punishing on rides longer than 15 minutes. Resident video master, Spenser Robert, agreed, “It’s just rock hard. The shape doesn’t help, but the shape wouldn’t be as much of a problem if the saddle wasn’t made out of granite.” That being said, the folks at British Customs claim there is a known break in period that makes the seat foam feel hard at first, but over time will conform to your derriere. When the British Customs seat arrived and I took it out of the box, it was noticeably heavy, so I took all the seats to our shipping scale. At nearly 9 pounds, the British Customs seat is about twice the weight of the other two seats. Granite, indeed.
