The weight of a carbon fiber seat with the price of a fiberglass seat.

The latest racing seat from Sparco showcases their newest, patented, QRT Ultra-Light Technology. The Sparco QRT-R offers an industry unmatched strength-to-weight ratio for fiberglass composite seats. With an average weight savings of 7lbs per shell, the QRT-R approaches the weight of a carbon fiber seat while keeping the price of a fiberglass seat. Better yet, Sparco gifted the QRT-R with a unique CAD design that offers an excellent fit for most drivers, while keeping exterior dimensions that can easily fit into smaller cockpits. With a shell weight of just under 10 lbs, the US-specific QRT-R is FIA approved and features taller shoulder guide openings to fit more drivers, and mounting that is compatible with all current Sparco brackets.

Technical Information
Rating: FIA 8855-1999

Have these been weighed on a scale? The wording (shell only) sounds misleading on the weight
