Thread: Tension adjustable by strap seat and Stimulite Classic sling

  1. #1

    Tension adjustable by strap seat and Stimulite Classic sling

    Will the tension adjustable by strap seat upholstery be wasted with a Stimulite Classic Sling? I understand that there is a rigid insert at the bottom of the cushion.

    imo, that adfj strap seat is a waste of monies and a huge pain in the ass. it doesnt stay tight, im constantly tightning those straps. my new zr2 has the bolt on, much better.

    A bolt on sling is not available with a tapered seat, if that's what Peter is interested in.

    There is no rigid insert. The sling version has a curved base, made of the same material as the rest of the cushion, but adds a significant amount of height. I bought a stim contour sling and regret it. I can't use it at all, and it's gathering dust. That kind of base might be usuable with an old very stretched seat sling, but not with a tension-adjustible sling.

    fuente - Having to adjust the straps every now and then is a pain indeed. Need to reconsider this choice again.

    stephen - Nah, I wanted to know if I am wasting $150 for the strap adjustable seat since I will also be paying extra for the Stimulite Classic Sling and wondering the difference between the sling and flat bottom versions.

    amyk- What I don't need is extra height from the cushion. What seat and cushion are you on now?

    I have the flat bottom cushion...and there is no extra height. The extra height comes from the sling cushion. If you went with the flat bottom...you should be ok.

    Peter - the sling version of the stimulite cushion has a slightly curved underside, to match the (assumed) slight curvature of a fabric seat. The flat version is flat, intended for use with solid seats.

    If your seat fabric does not curve a little when it is weighted by you sitting in it, the sling cushion will sit a little higher.

    wheeliecoach - I am going for the sling seat. Was mulling the Stimulite Sport but it is only for flat bottom.

    Katja - Hmm, now I have to rethink my cushion and seat.
