Racing seat for large or long-torso drivers up to 6' 6" with integrated head restraints that is compatible with your HANS device.
Protecting and supporting the human body in the right places and keeping all parts of the body in the same relationship to each other will help minimize injury and greatly increase chances of survival. The design and structure of the seat is perhaps more vital to survival than even the harness. Tests show that in a frontal impact only around 20% of body movement comes from the belt stretching. The remaining 80% is from the body not being contained within the seat. The ability of the seat to absorb crash energy lessens the amount of it that the body has to contend with. And in the case of multiple impacts the belts and seat will continue to deform, making the quality and strength of the structure around you even more vital.
Racetech 4009 seats feature extensive lateral support and reinforcement in both thigh and torso areas. Racetech designs their seats with support in critical areas to minimize fatigue and improve driver comfort and confidence. The upper torso and shoulders are protected with extended side bolsters. The head has 270 degrees of protection. Unlike most seats with head restraint built in, the 4009WTHR does NOT hunch your shoulders forward in an unnatural position. This seat is specifically designed for drivers up to 6'6" or long-torso drivers with more support in the back and shoulder areas - shoulder harness holes are positioned so that your spine is not compressed when tightened. As a fiberglass seat designed under FIA 8855-1999 regulations* a seatback brace may be required, depending on your series rules and safety standards. The back shell includes threaded bosses for a seatback brace.
* - even though Racetech manufactures the 4009WTHR to the same standards as other 4009 seats, it was not submitted for FIA approval due to cost of certifying a low production fitment.
