The new RECARO Podium is much more than a thoroughbred GFRP or CFRP shell seat. It’s a pioneering seat design for the contrasting demands of road and track. It’s not just its sleek outline, visible structures or motorsport-inspired pads in varying thicknesses that make heads turn. The Podium stands out because of its superior quality and exceptional performance on all road types – for driving day-to-day and at the limit. The RECARO Podium is the only retrofit shell seat on the market that is approved for use on public roads and has FIA homologation. Racing technology doesn’t get better than this! 

To meet our consistently high standards of innovation, quality, comfort and, most importantly, safety, the RECARO Podium went through intensive testing on the toughest racetracks in the world during development. 

The suave combination of original Alcantara® fabrics and exclusive leather together with the passive ventilation of the open back shell and airy pad contours make even the longest of routes the most perfect of pleasures. In addition, the RECARO Podium is the first racing shell ever to be awarded the coveted seal of quality from AGR e.V, the German Campaign for Healthier Backs – a reliable decision-making aid when buying back-friendly products. The shell is also super light – but, of course, that goes without saying.
