RS1 Sim Racing Recline Seat
The RS1 is our best selling recline sim racing seat, because it balances comfort & style while being very well priced - the perfect combination with your R-PRO Black Edition Sim Rig.
The RS1 seat is upholstered in black leatherette, with elegant diamond stitching pattern on the insides of the bolsters and striking contrast stitching, giving the seat a premium and stylish appearance. The seat is embellished with the Upshift logo in white stitching, and the rear of the seat is finished in a faux-carbon fibre style leatherette, further adding to its sporty intentions. Subtle & Stylish.
The RS1 Seat was designed to be mounted directly to the R-PRO and, in-keeping with our ethos of convenience, the RS1 Racing Seat mounts directly to the R-PRO rig via the included dual-locking seat slider. Furthermore, to keep the assembly straight forward and quick, the seat slider is pre-installed to the seat from the factory, so it's more convenient for you and to have you racing sooner! The dual-locking seat slider provides you with quick and easy adjustments backwards/forwards, enabling you and anyone else who uses it to get a suitable driving position.
Our RS1 is a recliner seat, which is similar to a sporty car seat; the RS1 has sporty cushioned bolsters that will grip you snugly in the seat, giving a racey feel. The cushioned bolsters are comfortable, supportive and purposeful, so they gently hug you as you drive and hold you in the seat, emphasising the racing intentions of the seat. At the same time, these cushioned bolsters are also relatively soft and they have some give, which means getting in and out of the seat is easy.
Being a recliner seat, this means the RS1 has an easy-to-use lever that you pull and can adjust the angle of the seat, incorporating as much/little recline as you may want! This is a great feature as it allows for quick and easy recline adjustments, in combination with the seat slider, it means whoever you are, you can find your ideal driving position. If you needed to put the rig away in storage or transport it during a house move, the seat also folds very far forwards, which is great if you want to minimise the space the rig occupies.
For racers who want maximum realism, a fibreglass bucket seat like our GTS Bucket Seat provides deeper, fixed bolsters like you'll find in a racing car, designed specifically to keep the driver firmly in place; the trade off is bucket seats are a little harder to get in and out of and there isn't any give in the fixed bolsters, so if you've got a particularly wide chest/waist this may be an issue, but for the majority of racers this isn't an issue.
The RS1 Recline Seat is a brilliant seat for all sim racers who want a sporty racing seat that is comfortable and without the high bolsters of a traditional bucket seat. For some people, the big bolsters of a bucket seat are fantastic; for others, these big bolsters are restrictive and uncomfortable. Our RS1 Recline Seat is an ideal option for racers who want a seat that is comfortable and spacious. The RS1 was designed with comfort in mind to be, first and foremost, a gaming seat. A racing seat needs to be strong and protect the driver; a gaming seat's focus is about comfort and adjustability, being easy to use and ergonomic for longer gaming sessions. This is exactly what the RS1. The RS1 Recline Seat is fully compatible with our R-PRO Black Edition Sim Rig, and it attaches to the rig using the include dual lock seat slider, so as well as easy recline adjustment, you can also easily slide the seat back and forth easily with the slider, so the RS1 really is an ideal solution for individuals who require lots of adjustment.
