Be Real. Buy Real. (And be safe…)

Though arguably the most common, wheels and aero are not the only parts that fall victim to parasitic replica companies. Aftermarket seat designs are also hastily ripped off by companies looking to make a dollar off in-demand designs. I have posted on this topic before (see here: Bride Knock-offs), but it is worth mentioning again. If you are in the market for aftermarket seats, whether you race or not, be sure to buy from an authorized dealer - seats and hardware. This will not only ensure that you are buying authentic parts and supporting the true visionary behind the product, but also guaranteeing that you are buying a product that could help to safe your life (or the life of a loved one) in the event of catastrophe. Do not risk it.

Below are just a few of the shoddy imitations/look-a-likes that are floating around out there. The examples below are incredibly easy to tag as phonies, as they are not so much attempting to dupe, but simply mimic the style of the authentic. However, do not be fooled, there are certainly some models that are not just "inspired by" designs (illustrated in the linked post above), as many of these companies go to great lengths to deceive and counterfeit. Caveat Emptor.
