A new generation reclining seat that is the new flagship of BRIDE, which combines hold performance and convenience at a high level.
The STRADIA series, which has undergone its first full model change in about 15 years, is a new generation of reclining seat created with BRIDE's original idea in mind: to combine the hold performance required for circuit driving with the convenience and comfort for daily use. From the design, body shell and frame to the cushion, and reclining mechanism, BRIDE is a newly designed flagship model created with 40 years of cultivated experience and technology in the motor sports scene.
STRADIA III has a bone frame newly designed by 3D-CAD and a body shell with a monocoque structure that inherits the design of ZETA IV, which dramatically improves the rigidity and strength of the seat compared to the previous model Stradia II. The seat rigidity and strength of STRADIA III have been greatly improved compared to STRADIA II. In addition, its newly-developed reclining mechanism and one-touch reclining lever, which aim at maximal operability, convenience, and durability, achieve more reliable holdability and comfort by suppressing backlash and vibrations through stepwise adjustments. What's more, a belt hole for a 6-point harness has been newly installed on the back of the seat, which uses a specially designed high-density urethane foam for its seat and thigh cushions. STRADIA III is a new-generation reclining seat that combines the hold performance required for circuit driving with the convenience and comfort required for everyday use, and these different performances at a high level. You can choose from two types of colors: gradation logo, black and red, two types of shells, FRP silver shell and super aramid black shell, and two types of cushions, standard type and low type.
STRADIA III Features:
A new frame & shell designed using 3D-CAD
The innovative bone frame and body shell with a monocoque structure that inherits the design of ZETA IV are shaped to envelop the shoulders with more emphasis on hold performance. As a result, the load capacity of the frame has increased by 200%, the torsional strength by 40%, and the frontal collision strength of the backrest by 15% compared to STRADIA II.
Specially designed seat and thigh cushions
The specially designed high-density foam molded urethane used for the seat and thigh cushions applies surface pressure evenly to the flat seat surface, so it also has a good hold and reduces fatigue. In addition, it is hard to settle and has excellent durability. In addition to the standard type, there is also a low type thigh cushion with a thickness reduced to 2/3.
Belt hole compatible with FHR system and 6-point harness
A large belt hole compatible with FHR systems such as HANS and a belt hole for 6-point harness, which was often requested by STRADIA users, are newly installed at the bottom of the seat. This allows you to enjoy circuit driving and various motor sports more safely.
A newly developed stepped reclining mechanism
The reclining mechanism has been renewed to achieve a compact design while allowing significantly improvements in precision and strength. In addition, backlash (play) and looseness, often found in stepped adjustment mechanisms, have been reduced to the utmost, achieving more reliable hold and comfort.
A one-touch reclining lever with excellent functionality
In the previous model, the backrest angle adjustment came in dial form, but in STRADIA III, a one-touch reclining lever has been adopted for operability, convenience, durability and saving on in-vehicle space.
Utilizing the LOWMAX System which enables the maximum low driving position
Because STRADIA series utilizes BRIDE's patented LOWMAX System technology, it enables a low position even in a tight seat space. Even if offsets between the steering and seat centers occur, with the LOWMAX System it is possible to set the offset to zero*. (In some cases, certain models may not reach zero)
