 What is it that makes Sargent seats more comfortable?
Are they firmer than OEM?

It's the foam they use.... it's much firmer than the soft stuff that's fitted in OEM seats.

OEM seats feel nice on your arse for a few minutes as you sit on them in a showroom, after hours and hours of riding they compress and then it's game over (for me anyway) I'm in agony.

Never had a complaint with any of my 3 Sargent Seats... I think they are money well spent.

After about half an hour the Tiger starts to get uncomfortable, my Ducati Supersport MY17 has the most comfortable seat Ive ever had, can ride hours without saddle issues. Feeling both seats, there doesnt seem to be much difference in firmness. The shape and cover material is different so that must be the answer.

The stitching of, boxers, thermal layers and pants (pockets or not) all impact saddle comfort too and you have a very complicated task deciding what will be good for you.

Compared to my Honda, I would ride 3h and my butt got sore with any pants but some pants I couldn't last even 1h, then you get off the bike some minutes seams good, ride again and in 10 minutes it was the same, my butt ached.
With the heating seat of the triumph, I need to find the good position depending on different pants, I've ridden 3h without much sores or pains and if really I felt something, stand on the pegs for a bit and then I can ride for another 3 hours basically, so I'm lucky.

I would really advise people to test seats and with the pants/layers you're most likely to travel with, because on my Honda and earlier bikes I did use saddles from other famous makers like Sargent, Bagster, Briant and a pro saddler near my city, none ever did miracles with some pants they just were never comfortable !
