FIA Approved seat construction
FIA approved racing seats are specifically developed with specialist shells. These shells are constructed in a range of materials from Fibre glass (GRP), Kevlar, and carbon fibre. These are hand made products and are not produced using steels frames like other bucket seats and reclining sport seats.
This construction of shell helps provide the seat with a higher level of safety for those people requiring the most from their sport seats and racing seats. These products are the only way to go when looking to compete on track or requiring the best of the best.
