The ULTIMATE seat for a SM. After years of trying so shoe horn in seats to the SpecMiata's we decided to partner with one on the leading Carbon Fiber race car builders in the country and build our own seat that bolts directly into the stock mounting locations on the 90-05 Mazda Miata.
This seat was engineered and designed with the help of an Orthopaedic Surgeon to fit a human body. Most seats for sedans on the market today are square seats that do not provide any support to the critical areas of the body while in the car. Supports have been designed into this seat to support the center of the back between the shoulder blades, as well as the lower back and legs. Since the seat is rounded it is extremely comfortable without the traditional pressure points in square seats.
This seat is not just a seat made from a bunch of layers of carbon fiber. It utilizes aerospace advanced composite technology to produce the strongest lightest weight seat on the market today. The seat has various thicknesses of nomex honeycomb core sandwiched between the carbon fiber in all the key areas which then gets vacuum bagged and oven cured utilizing the latest technology and equipment on the market today.
With aluminum seats we have been modifying existing bolt on head supports and leg supports to strengthen them to make sure they are strong enough to handle an impact. This seat has the leg bolsters built into the seat for maximum protection. The head halo is a separate piece that bolts into hard points built in to the back of the seat so that you can vertically adjust the head halo and place it in exactly the right position for helmet restraint and vision. No more modifying of weak parts to bolt on....This is a comprehensive solution.
This seat bolts into the stock mounting location for the Miata. When you get an aluminum seat, you can often spend $400.00 to $600.00 more than the price of the seat to get it installed. This seat has multiple hard mounting points built in that will allow for the most common seat placements in the Miata. The 2 piece designed seat mount allows to get the bottom of the seat to touch the floor when bolted in place in its lowest setting. Do you have another application other then a Spec Miata? No problem.... All we need to do is modify the lower portion of the 2 piece mount to work with your stock factory mounting points or you can have a traditional L shaped bracket to mount through the floor pan.
We also designed the seat without lap belt holes. Currently today you find with a lot of seats the adjusters for the belts end up down on the hips next to the hole in the seat. This makes it very difficult to adjust the belts as a driver, not to mention it is uncomfortable and dangerous.
This seat weighs only 7lbs with the full containment including the head halo and leg supports, and will be available in two different sizes.
How do you know you will fit in the seat or like the design? For those that are serious about purchasing one of these seats, we will take a deposit and then ship out our demo seat so that you can sit in it, see the shape and make sure it is going to fit in the car to your liking. If you choose to proceed at that point, once we get the demo seat back we will get the remainder of the payment and ship out your new Carbon Fiber seat.
We are currently working with the SFI foundation for testing. Once the seat has been certified the price will be going up to $3500.00.
