BBone / car seat


The BBone seat elements are fully made of plastics to lower the wight. The tubular segments are flexibel and provide the needful comfort.
They are all connected by three anchor points each to the aluminum backbone profile.
The mid anchor point is movable. Its position can be changed by compressed air.
This makes the seat segments change their form to get a bit stiffer and to cling a bit more around the driver who is now held besser for a more sporty driving experience.
The driver now has an increased feeling for what the car does.
The BBone is a symbiosis of sport and comfort.
