The new Dual-Gripper seat cover is designed for functionality and durability. In past tests of several brands, we experienced problems with covers losing their grip after a solid month of riding. Between riding and washing, these seats slowly lost their tacky feel and no longer served their purpose. Plus, one of the biggest problems we've suffered with aftermarket and OE dirt bike seat covers is tearing. If you squeeze with your knees, as you should, knee braces will rub holes on both sides of the cover.
