So which is recommended for the FJR rider? The Sport or Adventure style?
So here is my standard recommendation for FJR riders. Most consider the FJR a "Sport Tourer." For many, this might lead you to think you that the SPORT style Moto-Skiveez® is the best choice. However, our SPORT style is really intended for a true forward leaning, clip-ons under the top triple clams, type of position. This style has minimal padding beneath the sitting area with maximum focus on the inner groin/upper thigh region. This short functions very well for true "Sport" bikes, but falls short for almost any other riding positions.
So having said that, although we had a very specific intent for both our ADVENTURE and CRUISER styles, there is much cross over with these two designs. The primary differences are; for the CRUISER the padding is slightly firmer and more directly targeted beneath the Ischial Tuberocity bones, (the points at the end of your pelvic bone that you sit on) with very minimal padding extending into the groin. This style is intended more for a rider that is fairly stationary while riding, and where their knee is mainly horizontal to their hip. Also the rider's head should be positioned above the pelvis. This places most of the weight directly on the seating area.
For the ADVENTURE style, it has a slightly softer foam placed over a broader area in the seating region. The pad is articulated to accommodate a more versatile riding position, (forward or rearward movement) and it extends down into the inner thigh/upper groin region. It allows for a riding position where your knee would be below your hip joint. In most cases, this riding position will take some of the pressure from beneath the Ischial Tuberocity bones and transfer it into the area where the legs go over the seat.
So, to summarize, For most FJR riders, their position is such that very little pressure is placed in the inner thigh/upper groin region. This is especially true for taller rider's or riders with long legs. This would indicate a CRUISER style of Moto-Skiveez®. However I always advise the rider to evaluate their primary area of concerns. Regardless of what style of motorcycle you ride, if you have irritation in your butt and inner groin then our ADVENTURE style seems to perform best. If the irritation is targeted more directly beneath your sitz bones, the CRUISER is for you and if you notice that your main area of discomfort is not primarily under your butt, but in your groin, then SPORT is the way to go.
So I hope that helps to better clarify how to choose which style might work best for you. My impression is SPORT-Skiveez rule on true crotch rocket race bikes. The ADVENTURE and CRUISER are almost interchangeable, but do have specific feature that make them perform differently. Thank again for considering Moto-Skiveez®.
