Corran Addison has recently released some images of the new power seat fitted within the also new Soul composite Super Sic playboat.
The power seat that was fitted to Riot kayaks back in the day (when Riot were good) was quite simply one of the best seats out there. If this new one is even half as good, it will be a winner.

The system essentially replaced the single bolt hardware used to fasten each seat pillar to the kayak with a double bolt system.

Step one was to remove the foam by ripping it off the seat. There was no way that the foam was going to come off cleanly so it was simply ripped away leaving the layer of glue.
