One of our GT-R customers recently bought, to my knowledge, one of the lightest set of seats available. These beautiful dry carbon masterpieces weigh in at a mere 12 pounds each. If you are after massive weight reduction this is without a doubt the set of seats you want in your car.
The Tecnocraft T2 line of seats is constructed entirely of carbon fiber and/or carbon kevlar with aerospace grade stiffeners, reinforcements and the latest epoxy resins to obtain the lightest weight and yield the highest strength possible. We also incorporated a certain reinforcement material known as Vectran®. Vectran is a liquid crystal polymer fiber that is primarily used in aerospace and military where high strength is desired. Using the best material available is how Tecnocraft can excel and produce a high quality seat that’s both strong and light.
With over 25 years of professional race car composite fabrication experience, Tecnocraft has been building one off race seats for quite some time. Using all the technology that they have developed throughout the years, they have applied it to the Tecnocraft T2 line of seats. A totally new designed seat that’s a bit more forgiving and also more supportive than the Tecnocraft T1. They are now offering the T2 seats in a standard version for the average body build and a larger version for the heavier set guys, the larger version will be known as the T2XL. The Tecnocraft T2 is approx. 6.5lbs(3.0kgs) and the T2XL is approx. 7.0lbs(3.2kgs).
