Suspension seats for shock mitigation - Shark Seating

Hi Folks,

This is just a quick hello from us at Shark Seating. We are a suspension seat manufacturer based in New Zealand and have been supplying seats for military/professional and recreational users for 6 years now.

We specialize in Jockey seating and focus on increasing the performance of these seats while reducing the price, to enable more people to use them and avoid injury. Our aim is to produce the highest performance seats available, at a lower price, with a focus on simple design principles, and modern high volume manufacturing processes (such as injection molding).

There is plenty of information on the website, and I will post some brief information and photos here as well. There is also a video (attached to this post) from a customer showing the difference between standing and sitting on his boat

Some brief info about the seats:
  • Light weight for easy one man installation (as low as 15.9kg for complete Jockey system including rear grab handle).
  • 316 marine stainless steel and technical plastic (no corrosion).
  • Fully waterproof stretch fit (stitchless) neoprene (UV protected, but do not store in sun).
  • Compact (seat width 330mm).
  • Small footprint (plinth is 238mm x 320mm).
  • Tested 1 Million full 10g impacts (200mm displacement, 100ms).
  • 200mm Non-linear travel (no weight adjustments needed between 40kg and 130kg).
  • Engineered to accept varying height occupants 155cm - 200cm+.
  • Easily repairable (shock can be replaced in under 2 minutes by one person).
  • Ergonomically engineered EAF (Energy Absorbing Foam) inserts for user comfort.
  • 3 year global warranty on all parts (Zero suspension breakages in 6 years of manufacturing Jockey seats).
  • Lab tested to outperform well known European brand (see test report on website).
  • Various upgrades such as 360 swivel, lap belt, side restraints, quick release and sliding plinth etc.
  • Seats bolt to deck or adapter plate with 8 bolts (minimum).


If you are in the UK or Ireland feel free to contact Stephen Govenlock, our agent, with any questions. Otherwise you can contact us direct in New Zealand.


Cheers!
The Shark Team
