Tillett W5


The W5 is a semi reclined version of the W1i shape. This is suited for low sports prototype race vehicles and race simulators.

The seat is available either with a carbon, or a black GRP front finish and both models have a smooth black rear surface. Moulded low profile seat belt harness holes are included. The W5 seat is a single composite skin and will need brackets made to fit to the various vehicles. No backframe option exists for this shape. Single skin only.

Low back W models are most suitable when a headrest is not practical, maybe for an application where there is already a headrest support in existence.

Available with no seat inserts, black suede inserts, or silver diamond stitched inserts.
