The new Playseat® Trophy-Logitech G Edition features:
- STRENGTH & QUALITY – The patented and revolutionary design has set a new standard for the ultimate, immersive racing experience. The frame is made out of lightweight carbon steel and is developed to provide extreme rigidity. Durable powder coating finish, high-grade steel alloys, anodised aluminum parts, and the use of PU leather allow for unrivaled durability for in-home and professional use. This game-changing racing seat is capable of supporting the full range of Logitech G Wheel and Pedal products, including additional accessories by using add-ons.
- ActiFit™️ MATERIAL – The Playseat® Trophy-Logitech G Edition racing seat allows racing enthusiasts, of any age or size, to experience the thrill of racing, just like in a real race car. This seat has been developed with Playseat®’s Innovative ActiFit™️ material, which comfortably conforms to your body to give you the best support and allows you to feel the full input from your Logitech G wheel products. The ActiFit™️ material also dissipates heat, allowing for racing in long stints without overheating.
- FULLY ADJUSTABLE – The Playseat® Trophy-Logitech G Edition has a fully adjustable seat, pedal plate, and steering plate, to provide ultimate flexibility in wheel and pedal positioning. The seat can tilt forward, backward, and move up or down to give you the ideal driving position to suit any racing style from single seater to stock car.
- OPEN DESIGN – The open cockpit design allows free movement of the legs for throttle, brake, and clutch for optimal performance. The backrest can recline separately and provides additional, fully adjustable lumbar support as needed. The seat has a built-in option to make the seating area softer or more firm depending on preference.
- ADJUSTABLE PEDAL PLATE – Another unique feature of the Playseat Trophy-Logitech G Edition is the forward and backward movement of the pedal plate. This was strategically developed to accommodate any adjustments needed to suit multiple racing drivers quickly. To provide high rigidity in all circumstances, these adjustments can be bolted down to be completely tolerance free.
- LIGHTWEIGHT & EASY TO STORE – The Playseat® Trophy-Logitech G Edition’s carbon steel frame is strong and exceptionally lightweight. At 37 lbs (17kg), it’s one of the lightest chairs on the market. The Trophy’s design and weight are ideal for easy storage when not in use.
