The B10 seat is stylish, lightweight, rigid and compact. It is based on our popular B6 race shape but modified to be more convenient as a daily driver. The B6 has always been a great seat for those that liked a low head position with an enveloping and ultra supportive shape, but often the race type belt holes were awkward when trying to feed a factory three point seat belt through. The B10’s cut away sides allow convenient use of the stock belts with the added benefit that getting in and out of the seat is also easier. However, we have been careful to make sure that the support of the driver is not compromised. The front of the seat kicks up a little more than the B6, which not only aids drivers with longer legs but also helps if the seat were to be angled to a more upright position. A more upright seat allows a comfortable arm length in saloon cars, where the steering column cannot be extended, or lengthened towards the driver. The headrest height has been raised over the B6 seat so that a driver with a long torso does not run out of headrest support.
The B10 has been given a modern fresh look and although its highly technical laminate is rigid and tough, it weighs only 4.5 kg / 9.7 lbs. The seat comes complete with a Dinamica® suede covered headrest pad. The optional suede covered cushion and back panels add 1 kg and are recommended when the car is intended for mainly road use.
The B10 can also use a full six point race harness and is Hans compatible for those with a serious track car. The seat uses our latest FIA seat fittings to make certain it is mounted securely and can use all of our 2° bracket range.
