Oregon Aero and CubCrafters have teamed to introduce a new seat cushion system designed for CubCrafters Carbon Cub EX, the Carbon Cub SS and the Sport Cub (pictured).
Oregon Aero, which has been working with CubCrafters for more than a decade, approached CubCrafters last year about designing a new seat cushion system for the three aircraft. Working closely with CubCrafters, Oregon Aero designed the cushions, which were tested by pilots who own CubCrafters.
“That was key to really designing the best seat cushion system for these specific aircraft,” said Ben Buss, seat sales account manager for Oregon Aero’s Northwest Region.
Features include: A design that shifts the hips, pelvis and back into a proper position; Visco-elastic foam that “reads” body temperature and pressure and helps distribute weight evenly and eliminate hot spots; and materials and design elements that help maintain blood circulation and minimize lower back pain from prolonged sitting, according to company officials.
The cushions also resist compression over time, absorb vibration and allow multiple users to enjoy the same comfort, officials add. Available exclusively from CubCrafters in black leather or fabric, the seat cushion system can be ordered as an option for new aircraft or as a replacement for existing models of the Carbon Cub EX, Carbon Cub SS and Super Cub.
