Introducing DriRide™ – The adventure motorcycling industry’s first truly breathable seat


DriRide™ is the adventure motorcycling industry’s first truly breathable seat.

It works with the rider’s gear to wick moisture away from the body, bringing dramatic improvements in rider comfort. DriRide™ Breathable Seat Technology, was developed by Touratech for riders in the Dakar Rally with the goal of making them more comfortable in hot conditions and over long distances. The results were so amazing, the company decided to make this technology available to the adventure touring community.

DriRide™ works in three ways:

1) Vapor-Flow™ Membrane Technology allows moisture vapor to pass through your riding gear, through the seat fabric into the seat membrane where it’s expelled through the side of the seat.

2) Rain-Block™ Waterproof Seat Fabric forces water droplets to bead up and roll away. It’s completely waterproof!

3) Ergo-Response™ Long Distance Foam is designed to keep you upright, stable and evenly supported.

The longer you ride, the better it feels! It is always exciting when technology catches up with human need. When that happens you have a ‘game changer’ and that is what Touratech brings you with DriRide™ Breathable Seat Technology. DriRide™ Breathable Seats are available for many motorcycles, in various heights and also in passenger models.

Want a 2014 GS Trophy Bike?

Since last month’s 2014 BMW Motorrad GS Trophy in the Candadian Rockies, one question that the Touratech customer service team has been asked a lot is, “What Touratech parts were on the Water-Cooled R1200GS’s in the race?” The graphic below answers all of those questions.

NEW – The Ultra-Light Aventuro Carbon Helmet

While there is no shortage of helmet options in the market, there are surprisingly few good choices for the ADV touring crowd. Some of the most popular ADV models are quite heavy, have excessive wind noise and are limited to just one configuration. Because of these limitations, Touratech has set out to make the ultimate helmet for adventure touring.

Touratech Unveils a Cool Concept & Awesome Essentials at Intermot

Touratech developers have been playing in the snow lately. This concept project was unveiled today at Intermot in Cologne, Germany.

Braced For Adventure!


The factory lower crash bars for the R1200GS and Adventure model look great, but lack a critical rear brace. If your motorcycle takes a hard fall, the factory bars can fold right into the engine, causing damage to the valve cover and the cylinder of your bike.

Touratech designed a solution to this problem with our Stainless Steel Reinforcing Strut. This sturdy set of reinforcement bars, brace the rear of the factory BMW crash bars directly to the frame of the motorcycle, allowing you to ride those rough off-road tracks with piece of mind.

The Touratech Stainless Steel Reinforcement Strut is a perfect match for the OEM bars and compliment their design handsomely. Made of strong, 25mm electro-polished stainless steel tubing, they’re easy to install, and come complete with all the necessary mounting hardware.
