Why are most  "european"  recumbents equipped with seats and cushions that are made in our workshops?

For more than 15 years we have been intensively working togehter with dealers and manufacturers. As a result we have developed seats and cushions which are customized to the specific features of the bike and the ergonomic needs of its driver.

We offer a complete system of glass fiber or light weight carbon fibre seats in over 100 different versions.

Our seats comprise a weight of about 500 grams and the carbon seats weigh even less.


For every bike or trike just the best seat

We offer you the seat that suits you best - in different sizes where appropriate: 

Seats for recumbents with a short wheel base
Seats for "lwb" recs, tricycles and quads


All   Hard shell seats  are generally made from Glafibre and polyester resin; we can work with carbon or other materials instead of glasfibre instead. The weight is reduced by 30 to 40 % by using carbon fibre.

Ein Wort zum Thema Einstellbarkeit:

Es mag auf den ersten Blick wünschenswert sein, viele Einstellungen am Sitz ändern zu können.

Die Sitzgeometrie ist jedoch durch die Konstruktion des Liegerades vorgegeben. Es ist dann nur noch eine Anpassung an die Rückenlänge des Fahrers erforderlich.

Wenn die Fahrradkonstruktion in Ordnung ist, kann jede weitere Verstellung nur eine negative Veränderung bedeuten.

Deshalb beschränken wir uns darauf, für jede Grundform eines Liegerades die angemessene Sitzkonstruktion zu fertigen und diese Sitze (sofern erforderlich und gewünscht) in der Größe verstellbar anzubieten.


Seats for recumbents with a short wheel base

The seats for recumbents with a swb are commonly characterized by a "flat" angle of the seat to the horizontal line. The driver, therefore, needs a seat which prevents him from slipping back while pedaling, in other words he needs a seat which is adjusted to his height or better  the length of the individual driver’s back.



Seats for "lwb"recs, tricycles and quads

The seats for scooterbikes and recumbents usually have a rather upright position. The therefore much more burdened seating area - on conventional bikes, the "saddle" - must be formed ideally.



Dreirad-Liegesitz für Trikes und Quads mit mittlerer Sitzneigung

Ideal für die mittlere Sitzneigung und einen guten Seitenhalt (und einen warmen Rücken im Winter) der Dreirad-liegsitz von Novosport: eine große Sitzfläche, ein guter Seitenhalt im Bereich der Taille und im Schulterbereich jede Freiheit um den Fliehkräften in der Kurve zu trotzen.




Here we show our comfortable mesh seat. You wil find no seat that is larger, wider and more comfortable.




For all seats we recommend our seatcushions, which are highly aerated prevent strong and unpleasant sweating in the summer.



Seats for "short" recumbents

We supply hard shell seats made of fiber glass or the light carbon with these features:

  • Lowriderseats: i. e. seats for SWB recumbents with a "flat" seating position up to 35 degrees
  • Uniseats adjustable in size from "S" to "XL" ; angle of this seat should be between 30 to 45 degrees
  • Racingseat ultralight below 1 pound or 450 grs. - recumbent seat, i.e seats for SWB with a moderate position (Seat angle of ca. 35° - 45°)
Sitzgröße: Damit Sie auf dem Sitz alle Energie für den Vortrieb einsetzen können und nicht für´s Rumrutschen, muss die Sitzlänge passen. Sehen Sie deshalb unsere Anleitung zur Größenbestimmung.

Which size for my seat?

In order to find out the right size for your seat please sit down with your back straight to a wall. Now check the height from the groundfloor to the area between your back and neck.
Up to 63 cm (= 25 inches) please order size "S",
up to 68 cm (= 27 inches) size "M",
up to 72 cm (= 28,5 inches) size "L",
for a height more than 72 cm (> 28,5 inches)  please order size "XL".

Unsere Sitze haben eine Länge Spitze über Spitze bzw./ Länge abgewickelt:

"S" = 72 cm /84 cm, "M" = 76 cm /88 cm,
"L" = 80 cm /92 cm, "XL" = 84 cm /97 cm.



Newly improved design!
The cutouts in the back improve the ventilation on hot summer days and let you guide your bike through narrow streets, crowded places or inside the house. Furthermore we minimized the weight without giving up stability.

Available in sizes "M", "L", and "XL".

Die Sitzfläche ist größer als alle vergleichbaren Produkte - insbesondere die von Billiganbietern - und ist ergonomisch geformt mit einem Rückhalt gegen Herausrutschen nach vorne - Ergohold.

Diese Aussparungen können Sie relativ einfach mit Ausrüstung aus dem Baumarkt vornehmen oder Sie beauftragen uns, diese gegen einen Selbstkostensatz von 25,-€  für Sie bei Bestellung eines Sitzes.

Seat as above, without cutouts.








The "Uni-seat"

Stepless size adjustement from "S" to "XL"
In order to change the size you only have to adjust one thumbscrew and two other smaller ones. You do not need any tools for the adjustments.

It weighs only about 100 gramms more than a non-adjustable seat.

The cutouts in the back improve the ventilation on hot summer days and greatly improve handling.


Racingseat ultralight

The seats can be ordered made from carbon fiber instead of glass fiber. This way the weight can reduced to approx. 500 g or 700 - 800 g depending on the size of the seat.

Seats for "lwb"recs, tricycles and quads

Seats for Recumbents with a long wheelbase, tricycles and quads: The seats for scooterbikes and recumbents usually have a rather upright position. This means, that the size of the driver is not an important aspect for the construction of the seat: one size fits all.

But the therefore much more burdened seating area - on conventional bikes, the "saddle" - must be formed ideally. Furthermore the seat, depending on the typ of vehicle, must guarantee sufficient side support.

Like with all of our seats, the weight can be reduced through the right choice of materials. For the lwb seats we also offer several variations for different types of vehicles and areas of intended use.

"Scooterseat wide" with support of the waist

►  Recumbent seat for tricycle

►  Lowriderseat for tricycle


Scooterseat wide

This seat was made for scooter bikes and respective trikes on which the the driver sits in an upright position (seat angle vertical to horizontal between 70° and 80°).

Ein Kunde schrieb uns zu dem Sitz: "Der bestellte Sitz .....ist das Beste, was ich je als Sitz für ein Sesselrad gefahren bin. Nochmal besten Dank und alles Gute."

Weil so häufig danach gefragt wird: auch dieser Sitz muß wie der Sitz unten im Bereich der Sitzfläche und im Bereich der Rückenlehne (im oberen Drittel, vorzugsweise im Bereich des Kreises) am Rahmen befestigt bzw. abgestützt werden.

Our seats for every time of the year and for every area of intended use. For the winter we recommend our seatpads made from isolating foam, which can be produced for any type of seat, even for the airy stringed seats. For hot summer days we would rather recommend our aerated seatpads.

We offer all our seatpads in 3 versions:

  • sportpads (upper pad in the picture)
  • comfortpads (middle pad in the picture)
  • super air pads (low pad in the picture)

The differences may be not as visible in the picture as they noticeable are during the driving experience.



All of our seat pads have a threedimensional spacer mesh core. The core of our seat pads consists of 98% permeable to air head space.

This mesh fills the rest of the core with polyester yarn. This yarn is extremly stable and will always regain its’ original shape even after years and years.

The black cover fabric also consists of this special mesh, in a even finer structure.

During the coloration the frabric receives its’ water repellent quality which discharges and lets perspiration vaporate quickly. Our seat pads therefore quickly cool off and always feel dry.



NEW: Seatspads for stringed seats!
More comfort in the summer and more warmth in the winter!

Is your seatpad uncomfortable?

Is your seat too cold in the winter?

We have developed a new seatpad for stringed seats, which can be easily attached to your seat.

Because of the changable interior cushioning the seats are permeable to air in the summer and cozily warm in the winter.

Seatpads for RollFiets, Hase-Bikes, Kettwiesel, Lepus, Tagun, and Trets!
