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 one of the safest seats you can buy.

Every component of a Cobra motorsport seat is meticulously designed to ensure that it offers the ultimate in driver comfort and safety.

Seat shells are manufactured under our ISO 9001:2015 quality system to guarantee consistency and strength: our carbon models are moulded in autoclaves with capabilities of 250oC and 7 bar pressure and all of our seat materials are fully traceable to source.

The foams we use in our technology seats are rate-sensitive and will dissipate energy: while the foam slowly deflects under sustained pressure, they behave like stiffer foams when they receive an impact.

Cobra's motorsport seats are upholstered in a breathable spacer fabric which wicks away moisture from the body, is anti-bacterial and highly durable.  Our Technology® models are upholstered in Dinamica - a wonderfully tactile fabric that is stylish, hard wearing, colour fast and resistant to pilling.

Options include Outlast® technology - originally developed for NASA to protect astronauts from temperature fluctuations, microcapsules in the seat's fabric 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 further driver safety and comfort too, with Cobra and SCHROTH Racing collaborating to develop shell geometry with perfect harness position and optimum FHR performance.
