Sparco EVO Fixed Back Racing Seat


Introduction

The Sparco EVO series is most versatile seat of the whole Sparco range, in terms of technical features and adaptability to the driver. Available in three sizes from Small (EVO) to Large (EVO II) to Extra Large (EVO III). We almost never sell the Small EVO seat, but instead mostly sell the EVO II. The EVO III is really for BIG boys, but we do sell more of these than the smallest EVO seat.

Please call Vorshlag for sizing and mounting guidance before ordering. Also, ordering on the website makes for pretty terrible shipping quotes. This entry is for reference and we would rather have you CALL IN THE ORDER to get more accurate shipping quotes.

The EVO's split base cushion offers excellent flexibility and comfort, and this pad plus the back pad can be swapped out with other options from Sparco for a personalized fit. The EVO seat features impact absorption material in important areas, self extinguishing fabric and special non slip material in critical areas. The shell is the new Ultra-light fiberglass composite shell. The weights shown on most websites do not include the padding and cover, however, so we have weighed the EVO II and share that below.

Like virtually all composite, fixed mount, FIA racing seats these EVO models are side-mount seats. This means you will need to purchase side mount brackets to begin to mount these into a car. Of course Sparco wants you to use their side brackets, but we have found better luck with OMP steel short side brackets, which we have listed in this same section. Even with those we still usually have to modify the side brackets to get seats low enough.

Most cars don't have a flat floor to bolt the side brackets to (one exception is shown above left - a BMW E30), so we usually end up making adapter "sub-brackets" for the side mounts (with flat bottoms) to bolt to, so everything lines up with the chassis floor. Sometimes we will mount the anchors for the lap and/or anti-sub brackets to this sub-bracket (see above right). You want a slider, too? That's even more work and more parts. We budget 3-4 hours to fixed mount a seat and 4-5 hours to mount one with a slider, in most cars. Miatas, Corvettes, and Elises - double that.

NOTES: Due to the oversized dimensions of this product, shipping can be a bit pricey. We ship seats as economically as we can. If you prefer to pick up your seat at our shop, please call Vorshlag directly to place your order.

We will gladly take your order over the phone, where we can work with additional carriers to provide the most cost effective shipping on the bulky boxes these seats ship in. Nesting two seats in one box, or shipping 3-4 seats at once via freight truck, saves even more - call us!

We TRY to keep this EVO II seat in stock, as it is very popular. PLEASE CALL to check stock before ordering.
