Description

The Ribtect Carbon Fiber Kart Seat is the original carbon fiber kart racing seat! In a race kart, one of the main chassis tuning components is the go-kart seat. Because a go-kart has no suspension, the chassis itself must flex for the kart to corner correctly. This flex also goes through the seat. If a seat is too stiff, it will not allow the chassis to flex properly. This can cause a chassis to bind up which will slow you down.

Through many years of karting experience, Ribtect designed a unique lay-up with materials that allow for better chassis performance. With the "X-pattern" in the lay-up of the seat (6" uni-directional carbon fiber strips to connect the seat from corner to corner) and composite fiberglass elsewhere, the Ribtect seat allows for more cross-flex than any other racing seat on the market.

Why Crossflex? When a sprint or road race kart rolls into a left hand corner, the inside rear tire must lift up off the ground to allow the kart to turn without scrubbing speed. When this happens, the upper left portion of the seat is flexed toward the lower right portion of the seat. This "cross flex" in the seat will hold energy until the chassis unloads off of the corner. When the chassis unloads, it is assisted with the energy stored in the "X pattern" of the seat. This will allow for a better feel into the corner and a better launch off of the corner and faster lap times.
