Tillett T11 Kart Seats by Tillett Racing Seats. These seats are the standard for karts, and they look it! The T11 is one of the most popular models on the market these days, and features a rigidity that is firm yet has reasonable flex. The "standard" rigidity and flat bottom of the seat provides a lowered center of gravity for the driver. A reinforced rear flank area on the seat makes sure your seat won't fail or crack prematurely, but will still flex appropriately to ensure proper performance.
Originating in the UK, the Tillet T11 range of seats is one of the flagship lines of seats from Tillet Racing Seats, who are a brand synonymous with kart racing seats. If you race sprint karts, chances are you are racing against someone with a Tillett at your track!
The T11 features a large flat area on the base which allows for lower mounting in the frame than many curved-bottom seats. A reclined rear back angle of 58 degrees lowers the head and torso height as well, making this a great choice for grippy race tracks when decreasing traction is necessary.
Tillett's fabrication technique for the T11 and other seats in the Tillett line is fairly unique - the seat has a 'glassy' finish on both the interior and exterior of the seat, which repels grime and damage to the seat more readily than standard seats. In addition, the T11 features a 'v' shaped rigidity band along the rear of the seat, which is one of the features on the T11 that allows the rigidity to be adjusted between the standard, VG, and 't' versions of the seat.
Sizing your Tillett T11 seat is crucial to get the optimal performance out of your kart! See your image gallery for references on how to size your seat, based on your height and weight. Also, consult the chart below on tips on which seat might be right for you based on your weight and size.
