The new Ring GT-X seat is now available from Status Racing. This seat offers more room at the thigh bolsters and a narrower top.
Online PR News – 05-February-2012 – – The newest seat from Status Racing is the Ring GT-X. Basic changes from its predecessor are found in the combination of the Ring and Ring GT. The lower hip portion is the same size as the Ring GT for larger drivers but flared out on the thigh bolsters to accommodate even more space then the Ring GT. Its slight V shape still gives great support in the leg area but without compromising function.
The top half of the Ring GT-X is basically the same as the Ring seat. This was done to accommodate fitment to cars where the Ring GT was too wide. Now with the narrower top, the seat can fit both larger drivers, and it can be placed in smaller tuner cars.
The Ring GT-X is part of the Standard and Icon series from Status, which is available in simple colors and materials, or fully configurable on their Status Icon seat configurator. Knowing how important comfort is for driving, the seats include a contoured foam cushion as a standard feature, as well as side bolster padding. Because this is a racing seat, abs plastic harness pass-throughs are inserted to accommodate the 3-inch Status Racing Harness kits. Each Status seat features an aluminum logo name plate on the shell as a finishing touch.
Status Racing seats are made in the USA using high quality composite materials derived from a background in military safety products. Each seat goes through quality control inspections to ensure the highest quality available. The seats do require separate purchase of side mounts, seat brackets, and sliders for each specific vehicle. Seats are sold individually.
