Tillett B8 GRP racing seat with a black gelcoat finish. These super new seats weigh approximately 4.6kg and are manufactured with a smooth black gelcoat finished GRP construction, creating a strong and rigid seat, with a further saving in cost. Designed to offer a true sports car seating position, enabling a weight reduction and lower centre of gravity, sitting you lower in the car. The wider sized seat features rolled outer edges which looks nicer, but the narrower model is trimmed to enable fitment in vehicles with narrower cockpits. The actual internal seating size for the user is identical on both models and suited for users upto around 120kg.
The shape of the seat sides on the B8 allow either a full racing 4, 5 or 6 point harness (recommended on an inclined seat) or a normal 3 point car seat belt can be used. The shape of the B8 does not require padding making it ideal for open topped cars and an option if desired. The seat is supplied bare without the pictured Dinamica suede headrest pad, but this can supplied by clicking the second option or in addition, with the matching 2 piece back and base cushion panels, all at additional cost. The B8 is side mounted seat model and can be used with the Tillett EBF2, EB4, EB5, EB6, TB5, TBF1, TBF5 and TBFIA02 side mounts, with Lotus Elise/Exige specific brackets in the list.
