Manufacturer from extremely resilient carbon fibre reinforced plastic this seat is not only the lightest seat of its type, but it’s also extremely rigid meaning the safety and driver feel are unparalleled. Using Recaro’s “Body Support” design this seat should be snug and supportive, almost like a second skin.
As this seat is made for the road, track and motorsport it is suitable for all standard belt systems for road and track: 3-, 4-, 5- or 6-point belts. To guarantee optimum safety, the Podium can be enhanced with harnesses from Schroth.
