When you look at professional racing seat installations in Formula, Single Seater and LMP2 / LMP3 sports prototypes, there is always a composite style seat installed. Next Level Racing’s ES1 sim racing seat is the evolution of design and material refinement, intended for use by professional sim racers and high-end simulator owners. It’s inspired by real Motorsport – with a five-axis roto-molded Polymer shell, it looks and feels like the real deal.
The seat is ergonomically designed and engineered for sim racing and is compatible with standard seat bracket mounts, inlcuding those included with teh Next Level Racing F-GT Elite sim racing cockpit. The seat is manufactured in polymer with high tensile material characteristics, so this bucket seat will not flex. Because of the material choice it is made to last and it’s very easy to clean. Fabric covered seats degrade very quickly in comparison.
Each main contact area on the seat is coated with PU molded foam with an alcantara style outer, and, if you’re a motion simulator owner, Next Level Racing have included red seat belts featuring the Next Level Racing logo. In fact this seat is ideal for motion simulation as the higher sidewalls (the “bucket”) will keep you well supported though each turn, bump and slide.
Ideal for endurance racing, thanks to the lumbar support integrated into the seat design, the suede style outer covering on the foam supports provide plenty of grip to stop any unintended body movement under high brake loads or extreme motion events.
This seat is ideal for the Next Level Racing F-GT-Elite sim racing cockpit, where you can take advantage of the Buttkicker compatibility and NLR’s 98 separate adjustment points to achieve unrivalled ergonomic perfection. And, becuase the seat is a solid polymer shell, you won’t lose any fidelity from your Buttkicker system compared to a standard sim racing seat.
Whether you want to drive in a Formula / single seater position, a GTE position of a hybrid combination, the Next Level Racing ES1 sim racing seat is an excellent addition to your rig.
The ES1 seat is supplied with harness seatbelts, mounting hardware (bolts) and mounting instructions.
