    Why is the seat design not the same as seen on other D-Line bubble lifts? Is it an add on to get the race shaped seats? Also assuming by the length of the terminals this does not have auto locking bars.

      Much like Leitner, the ‘race’ or premium seats are an option. Kanc8 and Ramcharger have them but I can imagine they cost a fair amount more. As for the auto-locking footrests, the length of the terminal should not have anything to do with them.

        The locking bar system does require a terminal extension to ensure space for the mechanism, generally, an additional 2m section is needed on top of whatever length was needed without it for a given lift.

    This lift itself looks so nice; but what were they thinking with that text on the bottom terminal? Very ugly in my opinion, am I the only one who thinks this or?
