Visualizing ocean waves simply as jumps and dips, WPS Outdoors' suspension boat seat bases smooth out the ride and help to reduce the hard jolts associated with offshore boat use. Current seat technology uses truck seat components adapted for mounting in a boat. That design is only meant to alleviate the occasional jolt or shock from a pothole or bump. By utilizing mono-cross shock design we can control the time of compression and the rate of rebound. Simply put this means with a two stage valve we can control how long it takes the seat base to fully compress regardless of the passengers weight, wave height or trough depth.

Frequently Asked Questions

  • Will the Hydro Shock series suspension seat bases fit my boat?

    Yes! The installation process is largely dependent upon the boat so if you run into any problems or have any questions feel free to contact us anytime!

  • What is the difference between the Hydro Shock 7 and Hydro Shock 4?

    Great question! The most noticeable difference is obviously the height with the HS7 standing at 16-17" and the HS4 standing at 9". However, the HS7 is designed more for offshore use where large rolling waves create a large impact as the boat falls down the back side. The HS4 lends itself particularly well to river sleds that face more wind chop than large rolling wave and where space is also an issue. Despite this design difference both seat bases will save your back from the potentially treterous open waters!

  • Is there any required maintenance?

    Simply put No! However, periodically it helps to lubricate the shocks with a silicone spray lubricant. 

  • How do I adjust the tension on my Hydro Shock base?

    Simple! A shock wrench is included with each Hydro Shock seat base that can be used to turn the collar located at the bottom of each shock. However, if you lost this wrench don't worry, we find it easier to just wrap the collar with a rag (to prevent scratches) and turn with a pair of channel locks. 

  • How long is the warranty?

    The answer is simple "if we build it we back it!". All WPS Outdoors products come with a full lifetime construction warranty. To date we've never had a product fail, however, if it were to happen just contact us and we will take care of you at no cost to you!

  • Will my existing seat fit on the Hydro Shock bases?

    Most likely YES! All our seat bases are built utilizing an industry standard 5"X5" bolt pattern so no need to spend more money than needed to enjoy your next outing!
