I ordered the carbon fx because I believe it would be easier to clean, considering the weaves are smaller. Thats the only reason I chose the carbonfx, I've seen both and they look very nice!

I got the grip-tex on my last BMW seat, and have ordered it for the DR650 seat they have now. Worked good for me, I have no experience with the carbon-fx.

P.S. There is a coupon you can print from their website worth $25.00 off, good for the month of August !

I've had both: carbonfx on my departed SV650, and griptex on my GS. The carbonfx would get slippery after washing and drying the bike, causing me to slide around on the seat for a day or so afterward. I haven't experienced that with the griptex on the GS. Come to think of it, I don't wash the GS much. smirk.gif

I have CarbonX and my friend has Griptex; both on 1200RT's...Can't be a big rip difference...Maybe the CarbonX is slipperier but I don't have a problem....

Bill, I've had both and preferred the Griptex. It's cooler and, as has been previously stated, is not as slippery.

 

It does take longer to dry though.

I've had a griptex and found that it traps dust and dirt. I now have the carbon FX on the KRS and like it just fine.

Of course, Al. I once knocked over my martini on it. That's how I know. tongue.gif

Shaken... or stired?

Having both Griptex and CarbonFX on bikes at the moment, I find the difference boils down mostly to appearance. I think the Griptex looks a bit more substantial and rugged, while the CarbonFX appears a bit more refined. Functionally, I have no preference.

 

A friend who had the Griptex on a bike says that it was "too grippy" when riding in jeans. If I have ever ridden the RT with the Griptex seat while wearing jeans, it did not register with me as a problem. I have also heard it said that the Griptex is difficult to dry, due to the pronounced texture, if it gets wet. I have found that to not be the case - one good wipe with a terry or microfiber towel and it is dry.

 

You won't go wrong, either way.

Shaken, of course. Preferrably on a quick twisty road. wink.gif

Shaken, not stirred. Brilliant.
