Performance and purism, united in a unique, extreme design, and armed for adventures on the most legendary race tracks in the world, the KTM X-BOW GT2 will set new benchmarks in racing. Keeping the focus on the essentials (weight reduction, performance, aerodynamics, handling), it provides numerous new technical highlights, increased ergonomics and usability as well as an almost revolutionary safety standard. It's the first GT racing car to use an Advanced Racing Seat (FIA 8862-2009) from RECARO with seat back mounting and homologated net fixation.
At RECARO, driver protection is about more than just giving you the impression you’re in safe hands. It’s our utmost priority. We act on the maxim of delivering uncompromising safety, reliability and durability to protect our customers under every circumstance and condition. With our DNA firmly anchored in motor sport, we have proven to deliver peak performances in safety, that routinely exceed legal standards. Safety first.
A racing car is not comfortable. It’s loud, hard, and stripped to its racing bones. As the key contact area between car and driver, the seat provides critical millisecond-by-millisecond feedback from the chassis, tires, brakes, engine and track surface. It has to be so perfectly tailored that you can forget everything aside from handling the car and winning the race. Every second on track demands every ounce of your focus and awareness. So what makes the difference? A seat that you barely notice, because it supports and cocoons you like a second skin. At RECARO we’re experts in human anatomy – especially the spine. Our racing seats are ergonomically designed to provide outstanding support and protection for your back against all the forces the track can throw at it.
An ergonomic sitting position also means a comfortable position. With a range of smart functions and perfect seat contours that support your body, we make driving fun. This support is vital, as being behind the wheel forces you to sit passively – one of the worst possible positions for your body.
Depending on the route, driving style and road surface, factors like centrifugal force, deceleration and vibrations come into play. RECARO seats compensate for these factors with support and protection: an ergonomic, anatomically shaped seat structure, body-hugging contours, firm upholstery, side bolsters and finely-tuned adjustment options. We’re experts in ergonomic design. We know that human beings aren’t built for sitting down. Let alone for hours on end behind the wheel where switching for a better posture is not an option. Your seat needs to support your body and relieve the strain.
