    Im looking at getting a seat for my crg road rebel

    im 185 pds and 6ft.

    tires are mg.

    looking at either tillett t11 or t12. Would standard rigidity be the way to go?

    axle I use is s25/s20.

    the other seat I was thinking about was the IMAF standard rigidity seat? Any opinions on those in the road rebel?

    I have had good results with the Kalit seat, Italian Motors sell them, also get a set of the rib protection pads .http://italianmotorsusa.myshopify.com/collections/seats-misc/products/seat-pads-shaped

    The T6 and T5 axles well worth trying in the RR.

    3 of my last 4 karts have been Road Rebels and I prefer the softer seats.  I tried the IMAF (loved the way the kart handled) but they were very brittle and cracked at the mounting points (barely made it 3 months and I quit using them after the second seat failed quickly).  I tried a soft Tillett many years ago and liked it (I think it was a T8?).  I also have used a Ribtect carbon fiber on a couple occasions and while I would argue it changes the handling, I found most of it to be corrected by simply running 1 (sometimes 0) seat strut rather than 2.

    Currently I’m running a brand called Greyhound (purchased through RPM Racekarts) and it feels much like the IMAF and seems like it will be more durable.  

    Regardless of the seat you buy, make sure you use really large washers between the seat and the mounting points to help extend the life of the seat.
