Buttpad FAQ

What's a Buttpad?

A Buttpad is a sheepskin motorcycle seat cover.

It provides extended comfort to help you stay in the saddle longer. A Buttpad has no synthetic padding (these are not gel pads). It is a piece of 100% natural sheepskin and contoured to fit basic seat sizes.

The design is very simple: the pad is held in place by a single strap and retained by two quick releases for easy removal. The underside is left natural (uncovered) in order to keep the cover from sliding around on the seat. The strap remains under the seat and is adjustable. This is a surface pad only, not an upholstered item, which helps keep the price down.

Why sheepskin?

Sheepskin is a natural product that works like magic! It is often used in medical applications to prevent bedsores and helps keep your "buttbones" from burning.

It is cool in the summer, warm in the winter, and reduces sweating! It's easy on, easy off, there are no moving parts, has a universal fit, and usability is not affected by rain! 

Sheared or Long Hair? 

Sheared Buttpads are more efficient for cooling and comfort because they pocket more air. They have a more finished look (1" loft) and take up less space when stowed. 

Long Hair Buttpads are long and shaggy (1.5" to 3" loft). They are thicker and may boost you up in the seat.

Natural Buttpads come in both sheared and long hair varieties and are not dyed. They are only tanned in smaller batches and are not always available. Each pelt is unique, ranging from light cream to spots to dark browns and grays. 

IMPORTANT DISCLAIMER- Just like any other dyed product out there, dye transfer is always possible if our Buttpads get wet, especially the heavier dyed colors (black, navy, charcoal, etc). If you have white or bright colored riding pants or seat, we recommend getting a lighter dyed color or a natural tone Buttpad to avoid any dye transfer. 

We are NOT responsible for replacement of 'ruined' gear if dye transfer happens, nor refunds or exchanges. 

Which colors are available?

Buttpads come in a variety of different colors! Check out our Available Colors page to see the complete list. 

Please note- sometimes natural tones are not available due to being limited in stock and very popular! We try our best to accomodate to your natural tone request when ordering, but it isn't always possible.

Is there gel in a Buttpad?

Buttpads do not have any gel or synthetic padding. They are made with 100% real sheepskin.

Can my Buttpad get wet?

Yes, it can. Don't worry too much about it getting wet. Don't put it on if you're heading into a torrential downpour (the reason for the quick release strap), but don't bother to stop and take it off if it rains.

If it does get soaked, remove the pad via its quick releases, shake it violently, blot with a towel, and you're good to go. You can lay it flat to continue drying. Water will not hurt the pad. Never use heat to dry it.

Dye transfer is always possible when a dyed Buttpad gets wet, but it will not ruin the functionality of the pad!

How do I clean my Buttpad?

They can be spot cleaned with mild soap and water, rinsed with cool water, and left out flat to air dry! You can fluff them back up with something like a wire pet brush after washing and drying (we sell those too!)
