The A.I.R. and the EDIRB (bride backwards) seats.

A.I.R looks more friendly to the larger of us.

BRIDE?s Sport Seats lineup for every type of driver
You can't tell that from a picture. You need the measurements. BRIDE only makes seats for Japanese people. Even their extra-large seats are too small for big and tall people.

The width measurement is 470mm like the Vios III (Zieg seats are 460mm) but they look more open and flat in the shoulder area where I would like more room in my Vios III.

I bought the Braum Advan seats, which have narrower width dimensions than the Corbeau Evolution. The recline mechanism on the Braum hits the inner rocker/doorsill, so the seat won't go back all the way, I need that extra backwards travel. I posted pictures earlier in this thread. Does the Evolution seat go all the way back.....does the recline mechanism stick out the way the Braum seat does, I can't see your recline mechanism in your pictures....just can't figure why the Evolution's fit and the Braum's don't?

If anything my problem with BRIDE seats is that even if you're skinny enough, the belt holes are almost always too low. Even the XL seats IIRC.

That is true enough, Brides are made for shorter people. So is the FD, your head will not fit in the FD with a helmet on if you are tall.

Basically only time I am happy I am short (5' 8") is when I remember at least I fit in my dream car.


A.I.R looks more friendly to the larger of us.
I meant fat and broad by "larger of us", not taller- should have been more clear.

Am 5'11" but have an inch of clearance with a helmet on.... because I have basically bolted a tube frame seat to the floor.
