Dear BRIDE Customers,
You can guarantee here at BRIDE Japan [CANADA] that all our products are 100% authentic and that we stand behind the quality of our products. Our seats are Made in Japan and each seat is produced, inspected and tested to the highest levels of performance. We believe in supporting authentic parts in our industry because these companies are the ones that innovate and work hard to maintain high levels and improve the safety/quality of our market.
Recently there have been a number of fake/counterfeit or “replica” BRIDE Japan Racing seats sold worldwide.
BRIDE has purchased some of these illegal seats and tested them against industry standards. These products are unsafe and do not meet the FIA strength or crash testing requirements and should not be purchased or re-sold. BRIDE Japan works very closely with international customs departments as well as national and local police authorities to prevent the distribution of counterfeit BRIDE Racing Products and to protect the BRIDE Brand. Original BRIDE Racing products should only be purchased from authorized BRIDE dealers.
Caution should be taken in the purchase and use of any BRIDE Racing Products found at on-line auction websites, automobile user forums and other “indirect” sales as these products may be counterfeit, fake or may have been involved in a prior accident or improperly maintained. Sellers of fake or “replica” harnesses may be subject to legal actions.
