Sparco has dramatically simplified what is arguably one its quintessential
entry-level racing seat. Gone are multiple colors and shell types, as well as
customizable cushions and added HANS compatibility. The EVO is not a single seat but a family of
similarly-built seats, each one suited to a specific body type. Here is
a quick breakdown:
- Sparco EVO I: Medium Build
- Sparco EVO II: Medium Build, Tall
- Sparco EVO II US: Larger Build, Narrower Shoulders
- Sparco EVO III: Larger Build, Broad Shoulders
For more precise dimensions, refer to the chart below.
The Sparco EVO family has a long and distinguished family line. It started as
the Sparco REV, which was an outstanding seat in
its own right. That seat was
improved based on input from drivers in the DTM and ITC racing series, and is
intended to give an especially liberating driving position, providing just
enough bolstering to precisely hold the driver in competition without
restricting motion or vision. Here is what you can expect in each seat:
This is the baseline EVO seat. It is suited to a smaller driver (medium
by European standards) who is not especially tall. Tall thinner drivers
should opt for the EVO II while a heavier driver the EVO II US or EVO III.
Sparco EVO II
The EVO II is suited to a slightly bigger driver than the EVO I who
is taller and therefore needs the shoulder harness pass-throughs located
higher. It does add about a half-inch of width but is still suited
to a thinner driver. This seat is a full inch taller than the other
EVO seats and is only suited to a quite tall driver.
Sparco EVO II US
The EVO II US does not paint a particularly athletic picture of our
nation's drivers but I suppose we have earned that. It is even wider
in the seat portion than the EVO III yet a little bit narrower at the shoulders.
Sparco EVO III
The EVO III is a big seat suited for a big driver. It ads a full 2.5 inches
to the dimensions of the EVO I and is suited to drivers over 240 pounds and waist
sizes in the 38-42 inch range. NOTE! The EVO II is a big seat. It is
essential that you compare your vehicle to the dimensions below to ensure that
the EVO III will fit in your application.
All Sparco EVO seats feature:
- •Fiberglass Composite Shells
- •FIA Homologation
- •Side-Mounting Points
