RS1 Sim Racing Recline Seat

The RS1 is our best selling recline sim racing seat, because it combines quality, comfort & style while at a competitive price - the perfect combination with your R-PRO Black Edition Sim Rig. 

The RS1 seat is upholstered in all black color faux-leather, with elegant diamond stitching pattern on the insides of the chest & leg bolsters, which gives the seat overall a premium and stylish appearance. Contrast stitching in light grey color contrast enhances the design further, and the Upshift™ logo is carefully embroidered into the top of the seat in white color. Finally, the back of the seat is finished in a carbon fiber style faux-leather, enhancing the sporty styling of this sim racing seat.

Unlike other manufacturers, we pre-assemble the seat at the factory, so it is shipped to you fully assembled! This is much more convenient for you, making the assembly easier and quicker, so you can get racing sooner! Furthermore, we also pre-install the dual-locking seat slider at the factory, so the seat is all ready to be bolted onto your rig. The dual-locking seat slider provides you with quick & easy seat position adjustments backwards/forwards, allowing you and anyone else who uses it the rig to get a suitable driving position.

The RS1 is a Recliner Seat, which is similar to a car seat you find in a hot hatch - so, the RS1 seat 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 not too big, and they have some give, which means getting in and out of the seat is easy, suitable for a wider range of drivers.

Being a Recliner Seat, this means the RS1 has adjustable recline via a lever. The easy-to-use lever is pulled and you can adjust the level of recline 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. Also, if you needed to store the rig away or 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.

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.
