Tillett Racing Seats - With Or Without Back Frame?

When it comes to customising your vehicle for performance or comfort, choosing the right seat is crucial. Tillett Racing Seats offers a range of options that cater to different installation preferences and requirements. In this blog, we’ll explore the differences between Tillett seats with no back frame and those with a back frame, focusing on how these options affect the installation process. We’ll also take a closer look at the Tillett W1i GRP Racing Seat, available on our website, as a prime example of flexibility in mounting options.

Many options are available on our websites such as logo colour, back frames, and cushion configuration options. We think this seat looks amazing in-store, what do you think?

Tillett Seats: No Back Frame vs. With Back Frame

No Back Frame Option:

Tillett seats without a back frame present a minimalist design, focusing on weight reduction and simplicity. However, this option requires a more hands-on approach when installing the seat. Since there’s no pre-existing frame on the back of the seat, you would need to custom-fit the seat by drilling through it and using bolts to attach it to a purpose-built frame. This method is typically chosen by those who require a very specific placement or are looking to minimize the seat’s profile within the vehicle’s interior.

With Back Frame Option:

On the other hand, Tillett seats with a back frame offer more versatility during installation. The back frame allows for both base-mounted and side-mounted fitting equipment options, providing flexibility based on your vehicle’s setup or your personal preference.

Base Mounted – This option involves holes positioned underneath the seat, on the base of the frame. It offers a stable support frame to bolt the seat directly to the floor of the vehicle or a set of runners. This is often seen as the more straightforward method of installation, providing a secure and stable base for the seat.

Side Mounted – For those who prefer or require a different approach, the side-mounted option uses holes positioned on the side of the frame. This method allows multi-point side brackets to mount the seat, offering a bit more flexibility in terms of positioning and height within the vehicle.

Our Range of Tillett Seats With Back Frames

The seats we have linked below can all be base and side-mounted into your vehicle as they feature back frames with m8 bolt points on the sides and underneath the seat, suitable for installing straight onto a sliding runner or the base of your vehicle.

Choosing the Right Installation Method

When deciding between a no-back frame and a back frame option for a Tillett seat, consider the following:

Vehicle Use – Is your vehicle primarily for daily driving, track use, or a mix of both? The intensity of use might influence your choice.
Installation Flexibility – Do you need the flexibility to adjust the seat’s position or height? If so, a back frame with side-mounted options might be preferable.
Customization Requirements – For those who require a highly customized fit, drilling and fitting a seat without a back frame might be the way to go.
