Lets talk size.

Each of the 5 seats all differ in size and shape. Each seat will work for different drivers. So what guidelines do we work too with each model of seat shown?

Sparco Sprint

The Sparco Sprint is the narrowest and small seat of the 5. The shoulders are tighter and point forward, the overall size of the seat is smaller and we recommend the Sparco Sprint for installations where space is a premium like the Mazda MX-5. Usually we would recommend the Sparco seat for drivers with a 34″ waist and upto 5ft 10″ tall. 

Cobra Monaco Pro

The Monaco Pro is the shortest of the 5 seats but has a broader backrest than the Sparco Sprint. The shoulders are flatter which work better with a broader driver, and the harness slots are lower suitable for shorter drivers. The overall size of the seat is again on the smaller side and will work well for a range of applications. Usually we would recommend the Monaco Pro for drivers with a 36″ waist and upto 5ft 8″ tall. 

OMP TRS-E

The OMP TRS-E is the middle point when it comes to size and specification. The shoulders are much wider than the Sparco Sprint and Cobra Monaco Pro with lower harness and added kidney support. The extra kidney support is the OMP’s best feature. The leg support is shorter than the other 4 bucket seats so we would recommend the OMP seat for drivers with a 36″ waist and upto 5ft 10″ tall with shorter legs and a longer upper body. 

Sabelt GT-090

The Sabelt GT-090 is the most supportive bucket seat in this category. The GT-090 comes with wide supportive shoulders, higher levels of kidney support, higher thigh supports and a deep seated driving position. The harness slots are higher up so we would recommend the Sabelt seat for drivers with a 36″ waist and upto 6ft 2″ tall. 

Sparco Sprint L

The Sparco Sprint L has been designed with size in mind. If you need a bucket seat suitable for a 40″ waist, then this seat is for you. This is much larger than the other 4 bucket seats and has been designed entirely for this purpose. Usually we would recommend the Sparco Sprint L for drivers with a 38-42″ waist and upto 6ft 2″ tall. 

We have each of the 5 FIA Motorsport seats available online ready to order.
