RaceSeats' 1199/899 "Competition Line" Seat

Does anybody have experience with RaceSeats' 1199 competition line seat?
My objective is to increase friction between me and the bike. I am hoping that this and some aftermarket pegs will complement my StompGrip tank pads.
RaceSeats Ducati 1199 899 Panigale "Competition Line" Seat

Description on the web site is as follows:

Seat made of a 3mm layer of special high density mousse: it's the same material which is chosen and used by several MOTOGP , Moto2 and SBK teams for the seat of their riders, one of these is the official SBK team Althea (2012).

This special material, which comes from competitions is the best for racing motorbikes. It guarantees a perfect grip and improves the motorbike feeling also in wet conditions. since it isn't subject to usury guarantees less consumption than a traditional seat.

Note: "Competition" seat is created for racing use and is much more resistant than neoprene seats, although this material has a best grip and wear resistance for the best feeling on the motorbike. The "competition" concept is to give the best performance and grip on the track, some little cracks could appear after usage, hot weather condition and sun' ray, that do not compromise the seat usability and quality, so this can not be considered a seat damage and it is not covered from our warrantee.

Got me the OEM 899 seat and am very impressed! Grip, comfort and improved position. Not cheap, but then again, one less night at the pub and it's yours.

I'm sure it's as good as - or better than - the R seat. The comfort seat, the race seat and the stock seats are decent on the street, but don't offer the kind of grip you need in leathers at the track. The R seat does, but it's a little low if you're 6' and have aftermarket rearsets.

Could someone give me a connection to the company? Last seat looks as though cover may come with different options.

I that a Carbon base I am looking at?

i carry one that was made to measure 2cm higher over the DP raceseat and 2 cm wider..
the only thing i can say it is very well made and its so sticky its perhaps a tad too sticky...

plus the service from the shop is very very good.
Thanks from Styler

I thought the new 2014 1199s did get the newer seat/fabric as the 899?

That would be my only hesitation. I also have the DP comfort seat and used it for a while last summer but switched back to the stock seat because of seat height. Just could never get comfortable with the height of the DP comfort seat.

Wouldn't mind checking these guys out. But only if they offered a seat the same thickness/height as the stock 2012-13 seat.
