The Tillett B5 GRP Race Car Seat. The B5 sits the driver very low in the car which reduces the likelihood of hitting the crash helmet on the roll cage. This benefits the taller driver who may have problems in other seats and also helps lower the centre of gravity. The side profile developed from years of manufacturing kart racing seats gives excellent support and leaves the shoulders free to help steer the car unhindered. Although the seat is small it can fit a surprisingly large range of driver sizes and the seat has been designed to be compatible with the Hans device. The B5 is also available in a Carbon version.
- The new rigid B5 seat weighs from 5.7 to 6.7 kg and has been designed especially to suit the Lotus Elise / Exige.
- The seat angle is a regular saloon car angle. The small narrow size of the B5 means that many other vehicle applications are possible with this seat.
- The seat is supplied with a Dinamica suede covered headrest pad as standard and can also be supplied with matching back and cushion panels at extra cost.
