COBRA: KEEPING ONE STEP AHEAD OF THE COMPETITION

  • To gain FIA approval, Cobra Seats have to undergo the most stringent testing imaginable - it makes Cobra Seats one of the safest seats you can buy.
  • Every component of a Cobra seat is meticulously designed to ensure that it offers the ultimate in driver comfort and safety.
  • Metal components are precision engineered in our workshops to tolerances of less than 0.5mm.
  • Seat shells are manufactured in laboratory conditions to guarantee consistency, quality and strength: moulded in autoclaves with capabilities of 250oC and 7 bar pressure, our seat materials are fully traceable to source.
  • The foams we use are rate-sensitive: while the foam slowly deflects under sustained pressure, they behave like stiffer foams when they receive an impact.  The foams' ability to dissipate energy prevents them from bottoming out and virtually no energy is returned to the impacting body.
  • Cobra Seats can be upholstered in Dinamica - a wonder fabric that is stylish, tactile and very durable: it is colourfast and resistant to pilling.
  • Cobra seats use Outlast® technology - originally developed for NASA to protect astronauts from temperature fluctuations, microcapsules in a Cobra seat absorb body heat to keep you cool and can release it back to the body as needed. It creates a microclimate to improve driver comfort.
  • Strategic technical partnerships optimise driver safety and comfort too.
  • Cobra and SCHROTH collaborate to develop shell geometry with perfect harness position.
  • Cobra and FHR manufacturers collaborate to ensure Cobra Seats optimise the comfort and safety benefits of SCHROTH Racing iNDi seat devices.
