RIBCAGE - Body Support System

RIBCAGE - Body Support System

Composite support panels that when fitted add extra depth to the sides of the seats.

New 2016 model

Kart seats are available in many different shapes and sizes but they are not depth or height adjustable, which means that the fit of the seat is nearly always a compromise.

Traditionally the only way to achieve this depth was to either use a seat with deepened sides, or to produce a wrap-around seat that curved around the body. The problem with these ideas is that a deeper seat fouls the arms and a wraparound seat could damage the ribs if a driver were thrown from a kart; even worse injury could occur if the seat were to trap the driver in, rather than let them be thrown clear. The Ribcage body support system comprises of two "bolt on” panels that give extra lateral support for the upper body.

The Ribcage body support system comprises of two "bolt on” panels that give extra lateral support for the upper body.

If a driver should be thrown forward or out of the kart when using the Ribcage panels, they are flexible enough to release the driver from the kart.

A good tight fit around the chest is essential to help protect the ribs and hip bones from damage.

By using the Ribcage panels you can choose the perfect height and depth for your chest shape. By using the optional Ribcage Spacer Kit, the width around the rib area is also adjustable. The Ribcage

Spacer Kit contains 6 x M8 long seat bolt sets and 18 x 4 mm nylon spacer washers.

The Ribcage does not alter the properties of the original seat by changing the rigidity and therefore will only have a positive effect on the lap times. If a seat with rib padding is to be used the use of a

40 mm diameter x 4 mm thick nylon spacer between the seat and Ribcage is recommended. This ensures that the bolts can be tightened sufficiently by crushing the foam completely.
