Smile How to check fake or authentic bride seat!

Hey guys. I think some of guys already know it but I will just post it. I just checked Bride Japan home page and found they posted how to check fake bride seat (gias,vios3,digo,cuga)

1) go to www.bride-jp.com
2) check top page left side "news" then click "copy商品にご注意ください"(click copy product). There are some PDF files with pics. You can see pics of fake and authentic bride seat. They explain detail of difference.

Also, they said if you are not sure your seat is fake or not, they can investegate for you (You need to contact them and send your seat pics)!

I hope it will help you guys!
Thanks.

If it's made in Taiwan, it's a bride seat, it just didn't come with a receipt from tee's. And that's what you get for outsourcing labor, BOOM!

as in, its the same thing as the real deal?

because i know bride is a registered trademark in taiwan, just not the same company who registered the name in japan.

i heard the story goes:

bride slacked on updating the trademark, so one of the higherups in the company split and took the name with him. he started producing the seats in taiwan to the same specifications as the japanese made seats and started selling them for less.

meanwhile bride japan got fucked over legally with the name issuew, and now must label the seats "bride japan".

right?

hey if thats the case and i am getting a seat of similar quality, then fuck it.

i mean, a seat really comes down to three things: the rigidity of the shell, the quality of the cloth/padding and the design.

If you want FIA seats call bride, if you aint racing formula D that shit doesn't matter, you're just impressing the fanbois.

Besides I don't like their seats anyway. But yeah they got fucked they were having their seats manufactured in taiwan, let the trademark thing slip and the factory has all the molds and yada ya.

got fucked in court, and now they gotta change their name while the other company still sells the same shit they're pumping out. If anything is fake it's their newer seats like zeta 3 L's or the cuga's or whatever they're callled.

Is there any other way to tell if its a replica? I picked up a pair of Bride Gais seats over the weekend on a trade. Whether they're replicas or not, the seats look to be VERY well made. The Bride tags state "Made in Japan." Here are a few pics of the makings on the seats.

Those are real.

It's funny that this thread would pop back up the day I bought my Bride.

How to tell:
NAPAC Certification sticker (shown above)
"Made In Japan" on the little tag (shown above)
And the seat model stocker (shown above)

"IF" the seats are real, I got a great deal on them, but I'm still not 100% convinced the seats are authentic.

You have EVERY sign of an authentic Bride, yet you don't believe it? Enjoy the deal you got. I just got a good deal on a Bride today as well. I'm on cloud 9 ATM.

Also, is the fabric part held on by clips underneath like so?


An authentic Bride will have all of these, a fake one will have NONE of these.

If I can only find a good deal on a pair of brackets. Any ideas where one might get a pair without paying $400.00?

Buddy Club rails are about $140 each. Much better than paying $200+ per rail for Bride rails.

that sucks about the copyright thing...

they should create a new name for their company and label it

'formerly known as Bride' ... now all the counterfitters have to start over.
