JK COMPOSITES SEATS FOR SV

Am exploring getting 'bucket' seats for my SV to give me more lateral support on track days. 

I have tried the Tillett B6 but it is too tight around the hips - so need to go for a slightly larger version! (No unnecessary comments please! Whistle )

I have seen some good reviews for the JK seats but would really like to try sitting in one before I commit. I am in SW London and JK are many miles away!

Would appreciate any comments on their product and also if there is someone within striking distance with JK seats who would not mind me trying them out for fit (when we are allowed to of course!).

Thanks

Garth

Are we too snobby to use them! Seem much cheaper than Tilletts?

No snobbery here,

They look well made, like any seat fit is the key, as for being cheaper than Tillets..... never - go wash you mouth out  Rofl

Those look interesting but do not want to spend quite that much!

Soft Bits made some "bum cheeks" for my SV which has leather seats. These shaped black vinyl covered foam pad are velcro' d each side of the seat. Comfort plus lateral support. Jill might still have the patterns although they were never added to their standard range of products.
