BRIDE GIASIII - Black - FRP / SUPER ARAMID - Standard / Low cushion
The ultimate reclining bucket seat on the streets with a newly designed high rigidity steel frame, monocoque shell, and precise reclining mechanism.
The GIASⅢ comes with an improved seat rigidity and durability compared to the previous GIASⅡ model, due to the newly designed bone frame and monocoque shell by 3D-CAD. Furthermore, the reclining mechanism and easy-to-operate reclining lever, newly developed in the pursuit of ease of operation, convenience, and durability, allow adjustment for multiple angles and realize a sturdy hold and comfort, reducing the backlash to a minimum. In addition, belt holes for 6-point harnesses are located on the backside of the seat, and exclusively designed seat and thigh cushions made of high-density urethane foam have been employed.
The GIASⅢ is the ultimate reclining bucket seat on the streets that intricately combines the rigidity and hold necessary for circuit and sport driving, as well as the convenience and comfort needed for everyday use.
This model comes in 3 colors : gradation logo, black, and red. The shell comes in 2 types, the silver shell made of FRP and the super aramid black shell, and for the cushions, you can choose between the standard type and the low type.
Exclusively designed seat and thigh cushions:
The cushions employed for the seat and thigh areas are made of exclusively designed high-density molded urethane foam. Your weight is distributed evenly on the flat seat, which gives it just the right amount of hold. It is also less likely to make you tired and highly durable. For the thigh cushions, you have the choice between the standard type and the low type, which is reduced in thickness.
Shoulder & knee support with a sturdy hold:
The GIASIII comes with a sturdier hold for the shoulder and knee supports compared to the STRADIAIII. Compared with the GIASII model, the load capacity of the frame has increased by 200%, the torsional strength by 40%, and the frontal collision strength of the backrest by 15%, which gives it the high rigidity and sturdy hold necessary to withstand strong G-forces.
Newly designed steel frame and monocoque shell
The monocoque shell, which has been developed based on the STRADIAⅢ model and made with a newly designed high-rigidity steel frame, has improved significantly in terms of rigidity and sturdiness compared to the previous GIASⅡmodel. The frame's tensile strength has increased by 200%, the sturdiness of the backrest by 15%, and the overall sturdiness by 40%.
The newly developed multi-level reclining mechanism
Developed with ease of use foremost in mind, the new reclining mechanism backlash has been greatly reduced compared to past models. The backrest angle can be easily adjusted with a single motion of a lever, thus making it easy to use, even in a vehicle with little room. By implementing convenience, durability, and compactness, this product realized both a high hold and comfort.
Belt holes located below the crotch area for Circuit Race
In addition to the large-sized belt holes located in the backrest which are FHR system compatible, this model is newly equipped with belt holes located on the seat's shell side, which are compatible with a 6-point harness. Furthermore, the size of the belt holes compared to the STRADIAⅢ model is reduced, which limits the extra movements of the belts, allowing for a safer run on the circuit.
Low positioning realized by the LOW MAX system
The GIAS series utilizes the LOW MAX system; a technology that is patented by BRIDE. This system allows for low positioning even with limited seat space. In addition, with the LOW MAX system, it is possible to precisely adjust the steering center and the seat center. (Might not be compatible with some vehicles).
