Seats, Seats, Seats.......which ones ???????

Okay, so I have read a ton of reviews, threads and information on aftermarket seats and quite honestly I'm still sitting here wondering................which ones?!?!?!?!?! LOL So, how about some new information and thoughts on seats???

I've got a new Turbo S coming and I'm just not a big fan of the stock seats, so I began the search of information for seats. After reading through a ton of threads, reviews and visiting different websites, all I can say is......OMG!!

I also live in an area where no dealer stocks any kind of aftermarket seats, so that really sucks !! How the heck does a guy pick a seat without ever even sitting in it!!! I'm average to above average build with being 6 foot and about 240, with broad shoulders and my wife.....well is exact opposite (thank God, LOL) and is 5'5" and 115, so yeah two completely different body types.

It seems the PRP seats and UTV Giant "apex" seats are pretty popular ??? I was kinda leaning towards the UTV Giant just because the price is hard to beat and the reviews have all been good??

So, any additional thoughts, advice or direction on seats, I'm all ears!

And recommendations on who to purchase from, if a guy would not do UTV Giants ???

Re: Seats, Seats, Seats.......which ones ???????

I was lucky and have a local UTV shop that stocks about 12 different seats to try out and sit in.. Sitting in them really changed how I felt about certain seats. The ones I thought I would like I didn't and ended up getting ones I thought I would hate but after sitting in them I was sold..

I went with Dragon Fire Racing "RT" seats. Ours is a 2019 XPT4. I hated the stock seats too!

Are your seats hitting the doors? It looks pretty tight.

No Sir they are not hitting the doors at all - only 1" wider than the standard seats...
I have PRP upper door bags' and Polaris large lower door bags also.

Re: Seats, Seats, Seats.......which ones ???????

I've been looking at these Hunter seats really close!

I see you went basically black on black with white stitching? Is the center backrest and center seat a different material like ostrich something? It looks like a different texture in the picture but it just might be the picture?

Did you notice it change your seating position at all??? Good or bad ?

Anything you don't like or really like ?

Big improvement over stock and worth it? My wife is already asking about these stock seats as she has sat in my brothers RZR and wasn't a fan. Honestly.....I'm not a fan either, hence all the questions!! LOL

Great looking seats for sure!!

HSP - quality, price, & customer service. Quality seats are well worth the $$, makes riding much more enjoyable.

Re: Seats, Seats, Seats.......which ones ???????

Hey OP, Feel free to check out our site and all the seats choices we have to offer.
https://www.prpseats.com/product-cat.../rzr-2-seater/

Where are you located at? We can see if we have any of our dealers close by that might have some seats or displays in stock. The best advice I can give you about finding the right seat (without sitting in them) is to look at what type of riding your going to be doing, and how much containment you want.

Obviously our Comp UTV has a ton of containment to hold you in tight. Which is perfect if you're bouncing around during a race, but it can be a pain to get in and out of. Our XC and RS seats have low containment, low sides, and are easy to get out of. Perfect for trail riding. The GT3 and GTSE have medium containment, they hold you in well when things are rough, but still make it easy to get in and out. Which is why they are the most popular UTV seat on the market.

Hope some of that info helps, and let us know if you have any questions!

Re: Seats, Seats, Seats.......which ones ???????

Thanks for the heads up!!

I'm actually located in central North Dakota and riding consists of trail riding. So medium to low containment as you call it would be about right.
