The new Sabelt X-Pad is the perfect seat for those racing Miatas, Corvettes and other cars with limited interior space, but who still demand the safety of a full-containment seat. The Sabelt X-Pad Racing Seat is Sabelt’s most compact seat yet. FIA homologated, the Sabelt X-Pad has been specifically designed to fit in smaller cockpits where drivers want the additional security of a full-containment / halo seat, while keeping the interior seat dimensions able to fit most average racing drivers.
Sabelt has achieved the interior fit of the seat by replacing bulky seat padding with a significantly thinner, but still comfortable, foam padding. Exterior dimensions of the seat were reduced by changing key elements such as eliminating the “rolled” upper edges of the seat, which reduces the width significantly without narrowing the seat to the point where it would only fit small drivers.
The Sabelt X-Pad is a prime example of how game-changing innovation can be discovered in plain-sight. It doesn’t always require a shake-up to standard conventions. $1,025.
