DebbonAir Custom Gel Pads only for DIY – Interior Fitting
£32.57 – £90.38 (Exclusive of VAT)
Perfect medical grade gel pads suitable for DIY tasks where pressure relief & comfort is required. They are ideal for fitting into Motorcycle seats for disbursing pressure as well as absorbing vibration and shock. They can easily be cut and resealed using clingfilm or sellotape.
These pads have been sold worldwide to biking enthusiasts, power-boat racers, Film studios (we are proud these have been purchased for use in the forthcoming Star Wars Movie!) the Veterinary field and stunt professionals to name a few. The gel is suitable for stable flat surfaces. Please refer to our fitting instructions for any further fitting guidance you may require. We also have a comprehensive list of professional fitters throughout the UK so if you are not confident in fitting these pads yourself, please contact us for your nearest recommended fitter.
Please be aware our gel products are used in hospitals and in wheelchairs therefore we manufactured to the highest specifications. Our pads are high quality medical grade and are anti fungal & anti bacterial. In simple terms this to a biker means they can be confident placing a Dan Medica South Ltd pad inside their seats without fear of contamination or green fungus growing on top of the vinyl.
Alas our success has produced a flurry of dubious quality gels which initially appear the same but by far do not act the same. Pick our gels for peace of mind.

LOVE YOUR BUM!
Our now famous range of DebbonAir motorcycle gel seats with or without covers is available in a wide range of sizes.
This Deluxe range offers you the flexibility of using the gel pad by itself for a number of different situations. It’s ideal in stadiums, on a theatre seat and basically on any hard surface. Many of our customers purchase extra covers to fit onto additional bikes and have the flexibility of transferring the pad onto whichever bike they are using.
How to choose the appropriate size for your seat. As a rule :
The Extra large is for the bigger touring bike (e.g Fat Boy Harley Davidson) and for larger customers requiring a longer, wider pad. (Illustration of the extra large pad on the seat below)
The large size is most suitable for touring motorcycles, (Illustration of the large pad on the seat below)
The medium is most suitable for sports motorcycles or touring pillion seats (Illustration of the medium pad on the seat below)
The small is ONLY suitable for a very very small pillion seat found on some racing sports bikes or as a tank buffer to protect your private parts (Illustration of the small pad on the seat below)
We always recommend you take the measurements of the seat and compare it with our drawings to ascertain the most appropriate size. When doing so please note there are two types of pressure problems, the first being pain and discomfort from the backside (which starts from your Ishcial tuberosities, the bony parts of your bottom) but there are secondary issues. If you experience tingling or aching legs it would be wise to pick a larger size so the gel can spill over the sides of the seat and cushion the groin area protecting your nerve endings and stopping blood vessels from being pinched, this also helps increase blood flow into the legs.
Under normal circumstances, gel pads will increase your riding height by approx 1 cm only. Our gel pads are approx 1.8 cm thick allowing the bottom bones (ischials) to be immersed and enveloped. Gel less than 1.5 cm will cause the bottom bones to sink through the gel and hit the seat thus causing pressure build-up (and isn’t that why you’re looking at gels for improved comfort!?)
“Here’s one for you Lynne, just been asked to look at why the gel seat he purchased wasn’t very comfortable. Here’s why – 5 mm thick!” Alan Woodier, CustomcoversUK, Weston Super Mare, Somerset (please refer to the last picture in the gallery)
Info & Care
Once purchased the gel should give you years of service, even when cut it can be easily resealed.
Should you have a change of heart and decide to put the gel on the outside of the seat you can purchase our DebbonAir Deluxe cover on this site. The thick luxurious Neoprene top is water repellent and any minimal surface water can be removed with a swipe of the hand. The base is non-slip rubber. As for the strapping, this is 1.5 metres of heavy-duty industrial Velcro for extra security. When using for the first time simply secure around the seat and cut any excess Velcro off. Wash by hand at 30 degrees and leave to dry naturally. Do not tumble dry or machine wash. (Include gel fitting instruction diagrams)
The gel pad. Do not wash. To clean: wipe with a wet cloth. If the pad is cut it can simply be resealed using standard sellotape or clingfilm. Always store product flat.
