National Seating unveiled its next generation of ergonomic truck seats at last week’s Great American Trucking Show in Dallas. The company says the High Performance model includes several upgrades over previous seats.
These include: 23-inch wide-plus seat cushion (2 inches wider than standard); 1.5-inch wider opening between armrests than previous models; and Backcycler Motion, a fully pneumatic system to reduce sore ligaments and muscles.
The HP seat also boasts 3-position rear cushion adjustment; 6-position front cushion adjustment; 6-degree to 23-degree recline; choice of leather or cloth; and optional chrome accents.
Michael Brunetti, director of business development for parent company Commercial Vehicle Development, says he believes the HP will help National Seating “capture a larger share of the aftermarket business.” The suggested retail price of the HP is $1,200.
