I remember someone posting about a cover made out of bath tub mat material. No slip that does not chaff. Who makes them, I am making my Christmas list.
Jettrim has what they call a 'bathmat' material that is a textured rubbery like material that has a little diamond pattern in it. I have it on a 96 XP seat and like it a lot compared to the naugahyde. I will say however you don't want to spend too much time with bare skin against the bathmat either .... it will still chafe after a while.
After experimenting with both companies seat covers on many different skis I have decided I like the Hydroturf seat covers with the center seat stripe the non-slip surface, and the sides regular vinyl. It seams all of the Jettrim covers have a sew pattern that has the bathmat or non-slip where the insides of your legs rub the bottom of the seat, great if racing, not great if you are wearing neo shorts like I do in the summer. The Hydroturf sew patterns tend to have the non-slip where your shorts rub the seat but allow the sides to be regular vinyl, plus the new Hydroturf non-slip is really rubbery now also. To me it seems its more the sew pattern than the actual material for a rec rider.
Jettrim I have one on my XPL and it is great.
Could you elaborate a little? I wouldnt base a decision to buy Jettrim just because you have one. How about solid reasons why you think its great.
AWD Products has a new traction material designed for the Rec. rider. It has traction without chaffing. It is not as aggresive as our 'Limited Slip' material which works better than the 'non slip' seats.
I can expound on Jetrim vs hydroturf seat covers for the 2000 GPR-the Jetrim material is thicker and more durable- the area of the seat that comes in contact w/ the pavement or ground when off the boat is a fabric that is extremely tough and wear/tear resistant- and most importantly in my case the cover actually fits THE FIRST TIME! Had to send a hydroturf cover back twice as it was cut incorrectly and wouldn't even come close to fitting. By the time it was finally shipped back to me w/ the correct cut I was so pissed that I'd already ordered-received-and installed a jetrim seat that looks-fits-and performs awesome. and Kelly at Jetrim is extremely helpful and courteous on the phone.
