Tarpon 160i seating options

Post by fl429 »

I bought a nice Tarpon 160i, which is missing the seat pad. Two questions,

1) what do you recommend for a comfortable replacement?
2) are there anybody tried to put the newer "Phase 3 Air Pro" seat in the 160i?

I like 160i better because it is lighter than the newer model 160.
THANKS
Greg

The Phase 3 seating found on the last generation will not work on the T160i.

Topkayaker carries the factory seat pad, but they are currently sold out: https://topkayaker.com/index.php?main_p ... cts_id=483

Surf to Summit makes after market seat pads: https://www.surftosummit.com/collection ... eat-grande

Surf to Summit also make great aftermarket seats which will fit your kayak. I have the GTS Elite for my Perception Search 15 and GTS Pro for my WS The Ride. The GTS Pro offers a lot of butt cushion, but the Elite has a higher back for better support. The GTS Expedition combines these two characteristics. Skwoosh also makes popular aftermarket kayak seats for older kayaks without frame seats.
