Anyone have Braum Elite X seats?

    • New

      I just did a little Googlefication and could not find any info on waterproofedness. Have you found anything on that @Blaze? Price seems good for the looks and quality per the reviews. I'm hoping you get some feedback on fitment.

      I have done a lot of research on these seats and am ready to buy. The seats I want will be black with red stitching. They are made of PVC Leatherette which I think will hold up better than real leather. They probably are not waterproof however Braum makes a vinyl seat cover that they ship with their Elite X Diamond series seats to protect them while doing any " Tuner " work. I found that out after watching a review video found here:

      If they are not included in the regular Elite X seats I plan on contacting Braum and ordering them. I'll keep them in the cubby hole for washing and if I ever get caught in the rain.

      I am just wondering if they will be too wide. I hear the Cipher 1031 seats sold at Slingmods are a very tight fit. After comparing dimensions, the Braum seats are a 1/2" wider. Does anyone with Cipher 1031 seats think their seats would still work if they were only 1/2" wider?

      Can't comment on the fitment...

      From the video, looking at the little used passenger seat of two years... the suede suffered fade from the sun. But that was the suede.

      One other consideration besides width that hopefully someone will comment up on...

      Seat base... pretty sure these won't mount up on the Polaris base and will require the Planted seat base.

      Ahhhhh, research...
      Remember when you wished you were older? How's that working out for you now??? :00008862:

      I am sure you are going to need the planted seat base sold by Slingmods to make these work.

      I have a local Bike Ride/Show to attend Saturday. I am hoping that if I order them today Fed EX will have them here by Friday. I'm going to roll the dice and make this happen. I'll keep you posted with pics of course.

      @Blaze they will fit, but are snug. If you have the rear side speaker pods from SSV it makes it even tighter. There is a Slingshot rider in D.C. that has the black with blue stitch and he really likes them.

      The seat covers are $50 and available on Braum's site under the accessories section.

      Brackets and sliders will of course need to be ordered as these are universal seats and not Slingshot specific like the PRP seats. Planted and Sparco both make brackets for the Slingshot.

      Not seat is water proof other than the stock plastic one, they are water resistant to a degree.

      As long as you choose a seat with vinyl/leather material then you are as waterproof as you need to be in the sling.

      If you want to sit on them Google a racing shop near you and go check them out, they always have those brawn's as well as some omp,sparco and bride on display.

      Seats and brackets have been ordered. However, the brackets are made to order and will take two weeks. Not in time for my show but they'll get here.

      Thanks for the confidence, WraithSS, on fitment. I do not have the side speaker pods

      Those are nice looking seats! I'll be watching for your results. Where and how muchee?

      Many online retailers sell them for $749 a pair. I have not found one site cheaper than another. CarID seems to have the largest selection. However they do not come with a vehicle specific bracket, only the sliders. Had to order the bracket from Slingmods for an additional $280. That brings the total cost to $1030.
