Default New comfort seat?

Has anyone tried the new comfort seat? Is it worth the extra $?


I love my spark, but that seat is a bit thin.

I suppose a link would be helpful wouldn’t it.

This is the new optional seat

Can't speak from experience yet but I was eyeing this even before I bought mine. Your back and butt will be able to tell you if it's worth it. I'll need it to keep SWMBO happy when 2 up.
I'm hoping the aftermarket offers a version or seat covers for it, not crazy about grey/black to replace my Mango seat.

I guess I’ll just have to bite the bullet and go give it a try. The dealership is quite a drive for me, but they do have one in stock. When I ride solo my butt barely touches the seat so NBD, but I just got engaged it’s those 2up rides down the shore for dinner where I worry about broken tailbones on a boat wake.


I was a bit put off by the colour as well.not so much for looks though. I have a pineapple spark, the dealer sent a pic of the seat on one in my colour, it looked ok. My biggest worry is leaving a black seat in the sun and replacing bruises with burns.

Amazon won’t do for a few reasons. First, I want to try it before I drop that much on it. Second, I have a unique work situation where I can get my employer to cover $200 of the cost but I’ll need the transaction broken up into 2 receipts. And Third, I’m in Canada, there are no Amazon sellers for that seat that are willing to ship here.

Well... I bought it.


Went down to the dealership on Saturday. They had one in stock and I was able to try it side by side with a stock seat. Seemed quite an improvement.


I pick it up Wednesday. Stay tuned for the ride report at the end of April.

Just bought a 2018 Demo Trixx 2up and debating on adding the 3 up comfort seat and 3up rear deck so I can puller skiers on my lake. Private Illinois lake and they require 3ups to pull tubers.

Anybody have info on what you need to convert?

I'm thinking about it, but I think it only comes in black/gray, so I would need to take it for a custom upolstery job, which will probably double the cost. I rarely even sit on the seat when I ride my Trixx anyway, pretty much only for the slow zones.
