Made in U.S.A.                                           Patent Pending

Born out of necessity, the Smoothspyder Dual-Mode Backrest 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 anywhere in between.  It's also great for keeping the children close and secure and added security for dozing passengers on long rides.

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”, locked in position, or left slightly movable to conform to the rider or passengers back position.

The forward or rearward movement of the backrest is easily and quickly adjusted and locked in position using ergonomic quick release ratcheting handles located on each side.

The mounting brackets easily install through existing holes, no drilling or cutting of the seat is required.  

The backrest is constructed of cold rolled plate steel and powdercoated in textured matte black for durability. 

All parts manufactured and assembled in the U.S.A.  Instructions and all mounting hardware are included.

The Smoothspyder Backrest will fit all BRP seats, but may not fit with wider aftermarket seats.  Please contact us for fitment guide.
