Haven't actually had anyone on the back yet but these fit well and look the part. They stick on with double sided tape so cleaned with meths before attaching. Looks like they should stay put.

Essential upgrade to the Givi trekker top box, especially for the pillion.

Well priced product, gives a bit of cushion to a pillion. My 15 year old said it wasn't as hard as she thought it would be once she had her jacket on.
Only things I didn't like. 1) it should have come with the top box instead of being separate. 2) not a huge fan of the fact it is 3m tape stick on, would have like something more secure, but that's more I don't trust tape.
Would I buy again, yes probably. Sits well on the black top box.

The backrest is good, does it's job and makes the ride more comfortable for a pillion and SBS has one of the most competitive prices available for it but, Jesus Christ! it's way overpriced for a piece of foam with some sticky tape on the back!!

That said, SBS service was faultless as always.

This item is the ideal extra to put on the top box to keep your pillion comfortable and happy
Just works

Very easy to fit and once on the box, looks like it was always there. Reports from passenger are that it makes all the difference on short and long journeys. The backrest does not interfere with the opening mechanism of any of the tie down hooks. Not cheap but worth the money. Was not in stock when I ordered but was delivered promptly as soon as it came in and I was informed of progress all the way.
