    Dual-Mode   Backrest 

Born out of necessity, the Smoothspyder F-3 Dual-Mode Backrest excels on the New F-3. The driver will appreciate the added support when riding alone, and it’s a necessity for the passenger to keep the awesome torque from pulling them off the seat. Combines the perfect fit of form and function, a comfortable, super adjustable backrest for the passenger when riding double, or just for the driver when riding alone. Unique pivot design allows for the backrest to go from a relaxed passenger position to the driver position in seconds, or infinitely anywhere in between, great for keeping the children close and secure. The contoured 10” wide x 8” tall backrest pad attractively compliments the lines of the spyder and seat configuration. The pad can be raised or lowered a total of 3.25”, locked in position, or left slightly movable to conform to the rider or passengers back position. The mounting brackets easily install on existing frame mounts, no drilling or cutting of the seat required.  All brackets are made of plate steel, laser cut and textured black powder coated for durability. The handles are black powder coated metal and stainless steel.  All parts designed, manufactured and assembled in the U.S.A.

Beware of cheap and inferior Chinese manufactured copies!
