Tillett B9 Full Carbon Fiber Auto Racing Seat

By Tillett

The lightest car seat option for road and track use in performance saloon cars. The B9 is identical in shape to the B8, the difference being weight and finish. The B9's twin skin molding construction results in a seat both rigid and strong yet far lighter than any other comparable seats on the market. It weighs an astonishing 7.1 lbs and has a beautiful full carbon finish.

The B9 provides excellent support along with comfort and convenience for daily driving. The carefully contoured shape seats the body firmly in position, whilst leaving the shoulders free to steer the car unhindered. Its shape is so perfectly moulded to the body that it requires no covering, reducing the overall seat weight even further and lowering the driving position. The ability of the B9 to run without padding makes it ideal for an open topped car used in a harsh environment. We do however recommend using our thin Dinamica suede covered panel sets for more regular road use.

There are two edge cuts, the B9-44.5 we call “edges on” meaning the continuous rolled edge at the leg area of the seat remains uncut. This gives a more aesthetically pleasing line to the edge of the seat making it easier to slide in and out of the car. Therefore, if you have the space, we recommend using this model.

If you do not have the space the B9-43 is needed. We call this specification the “edges off” option. These have the rolled edges at the leg area carefully removed to fit the seat between the gearbox tunnel and the door sill of a restricted width cockpit. As an example, this trimmed back option is required to fit the B9 in a Lotus Elise/Exige.
