helm & crew seats product line
The SHOCKWAVE S2 provides 6-inches of shock travel and can be installed onto a riser or storage box. Its low-profile design makes the S2 a great choice when space is limited or in an enclosed cabin.
The SHOCKWAVE S3 provides 8-inches of shock travel and can be installed with additional options, controls and a footrest mounted directly to the seat. The S3 is a perfect fit for RHIBs or cabin boats. These seats mount directly to the deck.

Testing under real-life conditions
To understand exactly how our products perform, we put them to the test in some of the toughest conditions on earth. In 2010, SHOCKWAVE president David Smith completed an 8000-mile journey using SHOCKWAVE technology. He took an 11-meter open-hull RIB from St. John’s, Newfoundland, over Canada through the Arctic Circle and the Northwest Passage, around Alaska and back home to Victoria, BC.
COMPUTER DESIGN & STRUCTURAL VERIFICATION
While we test and measure our components and seats in related environments, we also use a number of other in-house analytic and testing methods to ensure absolute safety and ultimate performance.
We perform “Drop Testing” in house to verify component strength and suspension performance
We use SolidWorks Simulation software to analyze millions of variables that may cause stress on the components and parts of all our products
All major components are broken down for validation and tested individually
All of our products are
tested on the water
