    ------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Find below the technical details and illustrating features of the seat.

    NEW SEATS GENERATION
    It is a new entry, the new seats with mixed carbon and fiberglass shell, molded in RTM . A new generation of seats with futuristic shell, for weight and endurance. The fiberglass shell is completed by a structural application rib, rigid and lightweight, designed to get the most stressed points. The double shoulder belt slot for harnesses regulation, the cooling ventilation holes integrated in backrest, the shape and the lateral support, are the summary of an excellent technical work, unique and exclusive.

    CARBON AND LIGHTNESS
    The seats and their technology are today Sabelt’s primary task of excellence,
    which began for the races and today is overt also for road super sport cars.
    In both cases it was the choice of quality materials with high performances that
    has led to much success, amplified by the lightness of the components. For those
    reasons we became specialists in the use and application of carbon fiber, the only
    material that holds the features to achieve these goals.

    HEAD RESTRAINT AS SAFETY ELEMENT
    Head restraint was initially designed to avoid the body to hit the inner hard part of the cabin in case of rollover and partial driver ejection from the window. Today the head restraint can be considered a protection from the side impacts thanks to the stiffness of the structure. HCF (hybrid carbon frame) improves sensibly the stiffness and rigidity of the shell, improving safety as well.

    RTM TECHNOLOGY AND ITS ADVANTAGES
    This is an absolute novelty in the field of competitions that requires significant investments and grants the complete process stability and systematic control of shell technical values:
    - Constant thickness and uniform application of the resin which results in a stable behavior to impacts in all seats areas.
    - Accurate and defined thickness at strategical points helps reduce the overall weight while maximizing stiffness.
    - High gloss finishes on both sides of the shell (can be used without cover for wider range of track uses).

    Great seats, but to install them in a 458 Italia or Spider equipped with oem electric seats will require additional modifications: it would be great if you specified these.

    Yes, but these are racing seats for Challenge racing cars, not road cars, hence the post in the Challenge cars section
