The new Corbeau Predator Racing Seat was announced by Corbeau today. This seat represents their first-ever designed entirely by computer-aided design. The Predator seat features advanced engineering, manufacturing, and FEA technology, producing one of the stiffest racing seats available within the market place.
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.
