Sabelt race seat for Nascar
Sabelt race seat for Nascar

Sabelt manufactures and supplies a race seat designed specifically for the high-demanding NASCAR Market.

With experience accumulated from numerous victories in GT racing and World Rally heritage, Sabelt engineers designed the new race seat using a full carbon shell with a Textreme outer layer to be compliant with NASCAR's minimum weight standard of 42 pounds. The seat is designed to accommodate integrated seat belt mounts and an integrated headrest.
Sabelt NASCAR seat is between 12 to 28% lighter than the competitive seats. In addition, the Sabelt seats have a lower center of gravity than the competitive seats and are made in the USA. Of course the seats are NASCAR approved and have duly passed rigorous tests: including the 69G Sled, a Quasi-static Test and the SFI39.1 spec test.
Sabelt's NASCAR seat is actually used by three ‘top of the level’ teams and drivers. Recently Mr.Truex Jr (Furniture Row) won at Charlotte Motorspeedway round On May 28th using Sabelt NASCAR Seat.
