Shockwave Suspension Seat Module

Hi all,

I am looking into suspension seating and like the design of the 'S2 Suspension Module SWP-1035' built by Shockwave in Canada. Does anyone have any previous knowledge of the product or would recommend anything similar. It has to be compact / robust / light weight. Preferably just a suspension base / module which i could use my own seats on.

Cheers

Stuart

The Best!

I would say you can't get any better! in all the racing both Jon and I did we never had a bad back or bad anything. I would not want to get in a boat without them now, it would just not be any fun.
I got the base unit only, the frame and seat were added here.

Seats in action.

Hi,
I'd be interested in a set for my boat also, which units do you have (manufacture).
Cheers

Thumbs up

Hi,

2-XS-IF, thanks for the info from what I can see they seem to be the most compact / robust for a race application.... With a decent amount of travel.
I have contacted shockwaves and let's see what they come back.

Many thanks

Stuart

Hi Stuart

I purchased 18 shockwave units this year, they are easy to fit and for non racing use ideal

Would totally recommend them
