The new rigid B5 black/GRP seat weighs a little over 9 lbs and was originally designed to fit the very narrow Lotus Elise / Exige. The seat angle is a regular road car angle, though each bracket option allows for a significant amount of tilt. The seat material is GRP (Glass Reinforced Plastic), which is extremely sturdy yet economical, and the surface finish is black gelcoat. Due to the small, narrow size of the B5, it can work well in many other vehicles, in particular narrow models like Miatas. Aside from narrow cars, the seat also works well in most cars, and has been successfully installed in Porsches, Audis, Ferraris, kit cars and many more. The B5 sits the driver very low in the car which reduces the likelihood of hitting the crash helmet on the roll cage and can be a game changer for tall drivers in low cars. You can sit within 3/4" off the floor pan. Since the seat is not a full bucket seat, it is compatible with 3-point or 5/6-point belts, making it an extremely versatile seat and an excellent choice for either street or track cars. We generally recommend the seat pads option, particularly for cars driven on the road with 3-point belts. The pads are made of Dinamica, which is a synthetic suede-like material, just like Alcantara. The pads aid in keeping the driver planted on what can be a somewhat slippery surface and will also help protect the seat. Customizations for stitching and color are possible, but are special order items. Please contact us for ordering any of these.
