Anyone have these, or planning on getting them?

A pair of racing seats with rails for $550.
Seems a bit too good?

I saw these and I think they are going to be a very similar seat to what summit sells. Thought for something that comes with rails and what not Id say it's a hell of a deal. Might have alittle bit more cushioning as well.

a seat is important enough for both safety and comfort that I would not risk a brand I do not know or had not even sat in.

I think sve is a respectable brand, but yes I agree I'd want to sit in one first.

Go on ebay and you will find tons just like that but cheaper. Only difference is the rails it seems

They definitely have the market in price.

But I cringe at the seams around the curves when you see the material get wavy. Just looks cheap, and I bet the rest is similar when you notice the details. Just like anything else, you get what you pay for.

Do they offer them in red?
I kind of want a pair of Procar drifters (only $177 each) but like Rich said, the curves for the shoulder bolsters are keeping me from buying them. They look weird.

Love the price point just hate the red stiching. It looks fine on a red car or a car with red accents but most dont have that.

bumping this to see if there is any recent feedback on these. Strongly considering them. The price (since they include brackets) is pretty dang hard to beat.

The 20 or so reviews seemed positive. You should go read up on those.

I've been thinking about them for a while now too. And yes the reviews are pretty positive. Wish there was someone on here that could give some personal experience.

Yup, I've read through all the reviews for both versions of the seats (assembled/non-assembled). Aside from those I haven't found much info. Like mentioned above, was hoping to find someone with personal experience that I could ask some questions. For $515 it's hard to pass them up though.

I have them. They are not bad for the money. I did cut the seatbelt bracket off to get them in my 1995 gts. I was planning on saving up for a nice set of seats and just decided to give these a try. They bolted up fine. They stay put and don't jiggle in the slides. The stitching is ok but not perfect. Im 6'2" 210lbs and have broad shoulders and I wear 33" pants. My waste fits nicely but my shoulders are a bit to wide for them. They are stiff but comfortable. The material seems durable. The red stitching worked for me because my car is red.
