Gel Motorcycle Cushions and Motorcycle Seat Pads for New Zealand and Australia. Our pads withstands the rigours of direct rainfall and sun exposure while you are on a long ride in greater comfort. Our cushion is engineered with a gel -sand filler that acts like a shock absorber for your body.

Butt Buffer is Made in America For the Ride of Your Life!

Often imitated, Never duplicated!
For over 15 years, ButtBuffer has established itself as a leader in motorcycle seating. We use a silicone and latex free medical grade product called visco elastic polymer, which is superior to a gel.

Polymer is a solid material with extensive viscosity, so it will not leak, freeze, burn, or break down. In fact we guarantee it! No matter how much weight is applied to the polymer pad, it will evenly distribute weight relieving pressure points, dampening vibration and absorbing any intrusions in the road resulting in a longer, more comfortable ride.


What Makes Butt Buffer so Unique?

  • Shock-absorbing
  • Supports weight without bottoming out
  • Evenly distributes weight
  • Hypoallergenic
  • Remains pliable from -65F to 285F
  • Heat and shear reducing

  • Fire rated as self-extinguishing
  • Latex, silicon and plasticizer free
  • Does not support bacterial growth

  • Retains it's original shape after deformation
  • Easily cleaned
Reviews of Butt Buffer motorcycle seat pads:
Hello Paul.
I held off making any feedback until I put in some time on the road. I can now say that I would definitely recommend the Butt Buffer seat pad to anyone who has a hard/uncomfortable motorcycle seat.  While I still had the feeling of sitting in one place too long, I did not have any pain associated with bones creating pressure points and the pain that eats into your brain after time.  I am 69 years old & have just started out riding after 15 years off a bike. I am into touring & riding 400-500km daily when on a run, so being comfortable is very important to me.

Hi Paul
Received seat pad thankyou,  tried it yesterday on a trip I do on a regular basis ( approx 260 ks )  and a vast improvement on previous trips , usually cant wait to get off the bike but this time  I felt like i could have kept going allot longer. Money well spent

Hi Paul

Feedback on the seat pad and service in general as requested

Online ordering -system easy to follow, to place an order / receive confirmation was very easy.
Communication throughout was accurate, up to date, appropriate and well received
Due to the Public holidays the seat took a little longer to be delivered, but taking the statutory holidays into account, delivery would have been, on time
The product is great, fitment to the motorcycle seat was easy, it doesn't move once secured, not too big for the original seat. I covered 600km over a day on my sport bike and came off feeling like I had been riding a cruiser bike. No sore backside what so ever.
Overall a good buy and would recommend it.
John, Greymouth, New Zealand
Hi Paul. Thanks. The seat pad has made a difference. It is more comfortable than the standard seat. Thanks

hi paul well we did over 9ookms had rain going down heavy downpours on the southern motorway to the first stop at Bombays, and just as we left hamilton really bucketed down but fine for the rest of weekend.we left whangarei 4.45am got to the bombays at 7.45am no stops and backside wasnt too bad.couldnt have gone that far before i would have been pretty sore.told quite a few ladies that have the same problem about the butt buffer.Many thanks for your help regards

I did 1300 km in 2 days on it and I wouldn't have been able to do that without the Butt Buffer!!
The medium size fits perfectly the front seat of my BMW R1200 GSA. I'd like to try the large as it maybe better for touring. The pad is very secure and did not slip or move and I was able to stand up off-road with no issue. The breathable version was fine being left on the bike overnight and didn't absorb too much dew. Off again at Easter................although my wife has nicked the Butt Buffer for the pillion seat!! Cheers,
Mark, Auckland, New Zealand
Done 4,000ks still got a sore butt ,after getting off & walking around this came right , Have done long trips before like this one , very sore for long time. This was much better then not having it on.

The Butt Buffer seat pads have been great. We successfully completed the TT2000 (2000km in 48 hours) and the Butt Buffers made the whole experience fun and a lot more comfortable.
Rebecca, Amberley, New Zealand
Hi Paul. We are just back from a 4,500 trip from Alexandra to Auckland and back to Alexandra. The seat pad was for my wife who spent her time on the back of the bike. The Butt buffer certainly made a difference on those longer days in the saddle Thanks
David, Alexandra, New Zealand
Hi Paul, the seat is just great, many thanks. We rode from Wellington to Paeroa and back, the seat made a great difference to the journey, it certainly did not feel like it was that far. As I also have more than one bike it fits on those as well, its so easy to change over. Its a great addition that I should have got a long time ago, :) many thanks
Daryl, Lower Hutt, New Zealand
Hi Paul, I'm finding that it works fine, but that I had some trouble tying it down. Over all I'm more than happy with my butt buffer.
Jim, Oamaru, New Zealand
Good thanks Paul it does soften the seat and not to bulky.
Shane, Dunedin, New Zealand
Hi Paul, well happy to say travelled 1000 k over last 4 days, wasn't until last couple got sore bottom but was manageable ,
Viv, Taranaki, New Zealand
Hi there. My partner and I have just completed Route 66 thru the American Midwest and I must say the Butt Buffer really did save my butt. I often have lower back pain when riding long distance but with the Butt Buffer this just didn't happen much to my relief. We did approximately 4480kms in 13 days with no pain so would definitely recommend the Butt Buffer. Thank you for such a great product. Cheers
Gail, Thames, New Zealand
Hi Paul, It's a nice comfortable cushion to sit on while riding. Whereas be for in jeans I would become uncomfortable after a while of sitting on the seam. Your seat has illiminated that.
Graham, South Australia
It was comfortable but needed a longer run to test it.
Charles, Invercargill, New Zealand
hi hav only been for a short trip ife thought it was verry good.
Noel, Auckland, New Zealand
Hi Paul, Had a few issues so bike has only had a short run. Seemed quite hard at first but after a few moments very comfortable. Will let you know once I have had time for a decent ride. Had it put in the seat properly and you cannot tell it is under the normal seat.
Simon, Hawkes Bay, New Zealand
I rode to Lake Tekapo and back with no sore butt! Definitely would have felt it before. It works! Many thanks
Amanda, Christchurch, New Zealand
Hi Paul, I'm very happy with it, thanks. I've done a few thousand comfortable kms on it and I have no complaints. Cheers.
Peter, ACT, Australia
Hi Paul, Haven't been to far on gel seat yet, but what distance I have travelled the seat has enabled me to go further before a pit stop. Thanks
Paul, Blenheim, New Zealand
"Hi Paul, The Butt Buffer is great. Very comfortable and great for long distances.
Warren, Auckland, New Zealand

"HI Paul absolutely love it! we rode 1000k + over 3 days and I had no sore butt!! It has made a huge difference :)"

Pia, Victoria, Australia
"Been using Butt Buffer on my Honda GL1200 Goldwing for the last 8 years and have suffered no back pain or saddle soreness in that time. Prior to that small to moderatre rides resulted in constant pain requiring medical attention. Thanks Butt Buffer all that hassle is gone."
