Corbeau Predator Racing Seat Construction

This FIA 8862.2009 Homologated racing seat is a both a dramatic departure and broad step forward for Corbeau.  The company has long been a leader in the sport and off-road suspension seat market.  This new seat makes the brand competitive at the highest levels of racing.

The Corbeau Predator is constructed using pre-preg carbon-fiber composite materials cured inside a high-temperature / high-pressure autoclave.  This process dramatically reduces the amount of resin when compared to seats that are not constructed using this method.  As a result, the seat features more uniform mechanical properties, including a higher degree of thickness control.  By controlling thickness and improving repeatability,  both waste and weight are reduced while stiffness and driver protection are improved.

Corbeau Predator Racing Seat Endorsement

And while is not surprising that Corbeau is proud of this new seat, it comes with significant credibility with the endorsement of British Touring Car Champion Jason Plato.  “The new Predator, which was launched this weekend, is an amazing piece of kit. The incredible stiffness, comfort, and feel it gave me is a massive step forward in driver safety”, says Plato.  “Corbeau certainly knows what they are doing when it comes to driver protection.”  Glowing praise from the winningest driver in BTCC history.

Corbeau has not yet released pricing and availability information for the Predator Racing Seat but that is expected in the coming days.  Watch Racing Seats USA for more details.

Corbeau FX1 Racing Seat Video Transcript:

Hey, Welcome to another episode of CyberAuto TV! Today we’re going to take a look at the Corbeau FX1 racing seat, one of the most cost-effective track-ready racing seats available today. This lightweight, fixed-back composite racing seat weighs in at only 19 pounds and has accomodations for both sidemount and bottom mount brackets. The FX1 features harness slots for 3-, 4-, 5-, and 6-point harnesses and comes in three sizes. The standard FX1 suits drivers up to about 38 inches in waist size. The smaller FX1 Pro is designed for especially small cockpits and accommodates drivers up to about 36 inches in waist size.

For larger car and driver combinations, a wide version is available that will work with drivers up to about 42 inches in waist size. As always, you can find the dimensions of the FX1 on Racing-Seats-USA.Com so you can confirm its suitability in your vehicle.

The seat you see here is an FX1 Pro in black cloth. The Pro version is also available with a red or blue center insert as well as the high-grip black microsuede material. The standard FX1 is available in black or red and the wide version in black only.

Making the choice between installation with sidemount and bottom-mount brackets is pretty easy. Sidemount brackets are best for pure racing applications where a single driver can securely set the seat position.

For multiple drivers or where the ability to move the seat back and forward is required a bottom-mount bracket is the better choice. And if you’re into racing simulations consider getting the FX1 with the optional gaming base to give you a realistic racing experience. Sidemount brackets, bottom-mount seat brackets, and gaming bases are all available at Racing-Seats-USA.Com.
