Why a Recliner?

***CR1AGS, CUGA shown***

made a post of why choosing a full bucket before. i understand that not all people desires a full bucket. like i listed on the full bucket post, does not recline, too tight, blah blah blah. that is why we have the recliner models 🙂 feedback earned from the full bucket and the actual race scene, BRIDE recliner is a “Sport Seat” instead of a “Racing Seat”.

以前なぜフルバケを選ぶのかと言うブログを書きましたが、皆が皆フルバケを必要としていないのはわかります。前も書いたように、シートが倒れないだの狭いだのウダウダウダ。だからこそリクラインのモデルもありまっせぇー:)。フルバケ、レースシーンからのフィードバックを元に得たBRIDEのリクライニングモデルは「レーシングシート」ではなく、「スポーツシート」です。

so what is the difference between a “Sport seat” and a “Racing seat”. a lot of the people brackets the after market seat with “Racing Seat”. but from my point of view, i do not think so. Racing seat is a full bucket. an actual seat that you can enter time attacks or circuit battels, rally, etc where it requires different criteria to enter the race. i do not mean others are not professional compared to the others. but the inspection for, lets say like the Auto Cross series, is less criteria that you have to pass. You can enter a Auto Cross event with the recliner type seat but you cant enter a time attack event with a recliner seat. that is why i placed it as “Sport seat” instead of “Racing seat”.

「スポーツシート」と「レーシングシート」の違いは何か?以外と皆さん「レーシングシート」って一括りでやってますけど、個人的には違うと思います。レーシングシートはやはりフルバケの事を言うと思います。フルバケはそのままサーキットやラリーでも使用出来ますよね。車輌点検なんかでもリクライニングは駄目とかあるじゃないですかやっぱ。だからと言って他の競技がプロフェッショナルとほど遠いって言ってるわけじゃないですよ。たた、例えばジムカーナなんかはD-Classじゃない限り純正のシートでも出場できるじゃないですか。車輌点検もタイムアタックなんかと比べると幅も広いし。そう言った意味でもやっぱリクライニングシートは「スポーツシート」であって、「レーシングシート」ではないと思います。

it does not mean that these “Sport seat” will not perform the same as the full buckets. all the bolsters are designed under the human ergonomics just like the full bucket but with more paddings and a recliner mechanism added for comfort. it will give you a better control over your steering wheel and less body roll compared to your stock seat. your eye level will be lower compared to the stock seats as well but not as the full bucket series. therefore, if you are in need of some more support, but the full bucket is a too much for you, there is a choice of recliner type seat. it will of course cost a little more then the full bucket, but the comfort and the performance you gain from installing this seat is worth it.

「スポーツシート」だからってフルバケとの性能の差が愕然としてるわけじゃありません。サイドのボルスターなどは人体力学に基づいて設計されてるし、フルバケとの違いは簡単に言えばリクラインするかしないかと、クッションの違いぐらいです。ステアリングの操作力は向上するし、自分の体もしっかりサポートされます。目線の位置だって純正のシートに比べれば下がります。まぁフルバケ程下がりはしませんが。それでもやっぱトータルで見てパフォーマンスは向上します。もっとサポートが欲しいけど、フルバケは行き過ぎって人にはやっぱリクライニングをお勧めします。やっぱフルバケよりちょっと高いけど、快適でスポーツ走行が楽しめるんだから価値はありますよ。
