Save your butt while touring.
A few months back I was covering a stretch of 100 kilometres on my humble Yamaha FZ. The roads ware treacherous. They were mostly unpaved and full of nasty potholes, big enough to leave the most experienced rider rattled.
After the ride when I reached home, my back was aching, and my butt was numb. And I thought to myself, an Air Seat could be a worthwhile investment to make.
Luckily, I found the Fego Air Suspension Seat and got it delivered two months back. Today when I’m writing this review, I’ve used it used it for more than thirty days. And I’m ready to string together a review.
Let’s jump right in and begin with the product specifications first:
Fego Float Air Product Specifications
•Fego Innovation claims that their Air seat can reduce up to 46% jerk reductions.
•The air pad promotes better air circulation within the seat.
•It comes with a mesh cover and a rain cover.
•Reduces back pain by keeping the rider floating on the air seat.
When the Fego Air Suspension Seat was delivered, I was actually surprised by the quality. It’s a huge seat if you see it in full flesh.
And still, the quality of leather used in the mesh cover is excellent. It won’t start cracking easily or get torn with regular usage.
The zipper seems to be enduring, and the red coloured thread used for detailing is strong too. I have a suggestion for Fego, they could use different colours of thread for details.
They just have the red now. Different options will make the product more appealing. Personally, I’d love yellow thread for details.
Talking about our main air cell, I’m not sure what it is made out of, and it’s not even mentioned anywhere on Amazon or Fego’s website. But I find the material exceptional and hard to cause any damage to.
The only thing that bothers me about the main Air Cell is the air nozzle. If it comes out, the Fego float air seat would be of no use. Not that it looks like it would.
Comfort is probably why you want to buy this seat for. And Fego Innovations claims that the seat removes up to 46% of jerks which out otherwise rattle your spine. But is it really true? I think it is.
I’ve ridden my motorcycle with and without the Fego Float Air Seat since I’ve received it. Every time I’m riding with Air Suspension seat, rough patches feel less rough to my spine and butt.
I’m someone who always stands up on the pegs while crossing rough patches, but with this seat, I don’t feel the need to. (except standing up to look cool) jk.
Note: You may feel a little weird sitting on the Float Air Seat for the first sometime. It takes a few days to get used to the seat.
So, If you have a plan for a long ride, say Ladakh. You can start using it beforehand to get used to it.
Fastening the Seat is almost a no-brainer. When you’ll look at the straps you will get how it’s done. There are two straps which hold the seat in place.
You just have to hook the straps to the seat after passing the under your main seat.
Fego Float Air Suspension seat will fit properly on most naked motorcycles and cruiser.
If you have a sportbike, say an RC 390, it won’t be a good option. Most sportbikes have a small and committed seat, for which the seat seems to be too big.
Things that I don’t like about the Fego Float Air Suspension Seat.
-You can’t be sporty while sitting on it.
The Float Air Suspension Seat is a perfect companion for touring, but you can’t afford to attack corners with grace when you’re on it.
It snatches away all the confidence you would otherwise have while riding aggressively.
The more air pressure you have in the seat, the shakier you will feel on top of it. I keep the pressure to 50% and lower it down more when I’m about to hit the corners.
-Easy to steal.
Since the seat can be easily taken out, it is easier for anyone to steal it. You’ll have to take care of your motorcycle, and you just can’t leave it in strange places. I carry it with me wherever I can. But it becomes a hassle sometimes.
The Fego Float Air Suspension Seat is an incredibly helpful product for people who experience back pain. On Indian roads, which are not in an excellent state, this product really makes sense to me.
Once you get used to the damping, you won’t ever ride without the Fego Float. It’s a subtle change which you will notice after using it for some time.
For 2000 INR, Fego Float Air is bang for the buck. Apart from the main seat, it can also be used on the pillion seat for elderly people with back pain and pregnant ladies.
