    Jolt Rider

The Jolt Rider is a revolutionary shock-mitigating marine seat designed to provide a safer and more comfortable boating experience in the harsh marine environment. Engineered to mitigate wave impacts by up to 60% in moderate to heavy sea states, the Jolt Rider offers superior performance, functionality, and affordability compared to existing solutions in the market.

At the heart of our GEN5 product lies our continued commitment to addressing the number one cause of injuries on marine vessels—repetitive impacts. Through meticulous engineering and a fresh approach to shock-absorbing systems, we took our market knowledge and key learnings from our previous GEN4 product to not only improve performance and functionality but also reduce weight, complexity, and cost.

The solution was a strong but lightweight seat that provides a controlled rebound through an internal multi-spring system with a German-made stainless steel hydraulic damper. Jolt Rider is engineered from high-quality materials including anodised aluminium, 316 stainless steel, and engineered plastics to withstand the harsh marine environment and be durable under high impact conditions.

Designed to appeal to all markets, the Jolt Rider can be easily retrofitted into existing vessels. With its industry-standard mount pattern and adaptable seat position, the Jolt Rider minimizes or eliminates the need for vessel modifications. It functions as an all-in-one solution, requiring no additional structures or components, and the upholstery can be customised to match the preferences of the end user. Alternatively due to the modular and adaptable nature of the design, a foam bolster or a multi-fit platform option are available for 3rd party seat integration, without impacting performance or function. All variations feature a lever-operated height adjustment mechanism that can withstand the required impact forces, notably uncommon on high performance suspension seating. This design improvement ensures effortless ergonomic adjustments, improving ease of set-up between multiple users.

Whether you're a seasoned boating enthusiast or a first-time adventurer, the Jolt Rider GEN5 offers an unparalleled experience, making it a compelling alternative to the current market options.
