Gemini Seat

 Ergonomics and Safety

The Gemini seat was designed using the same ergonomic profile as the bestselling Aries stainless steel seat.

Reduced capital and operating cost

The Gemini seat uses quick change inserts

The design is modular using the same components for 1PL and 2PL configurations.

The seat is ultra-lightweight with common inserts throughout the bus and is great fit for e-drive applications for reduced weight and improved distance

Maximized optionality

The seat is offered in single and double forward-facing flip arrangements.

USSC Group
G2A Evolution seat

A suspension that is rated at 650 lbs. with a lift capacity of 500 lbs. This prevents the seat from bottoming out while operating over rough road surfaces (common in NYC). This also prevents operator back injury and discomfort.

 Slides under the suspension – this provides a “centered” ride for the operator and avoids the “diving board” affect which occurs if the seat bottom is extended beyond the suspension.

A 3-point ELR dual retractor designed for comfort and capacity. Capacity is set so that the operator will never require a seat belt extender. The dual retractor design of the 3-point belt enables a lower “G-force set point” on the shoulder which prevents lock up and improves comfort. Our seat belt utilizes Ready Reach and Komfort Latch technology to improve comfort and remove pressure from the operator’s shoulder during operation.

A bottom cushion with full extension to accommodate operators with longer legs and a full tilt cushion to relieve pressure on the inside of the knees.

Options that include a full back with integrated head rest or a mid-back with an adjustable headrest.

  • Heating/Cooling option available
  • Maintenance kits to standardize rebuild procedures and minimize SKUs
