The RSX features a padded seat which is suspended by elastic lacing cords to give hammock like comfort and the padded fabric further enhances user comfort and keeps the user warm by providing a windproof barrier.
The RSXA, also suspended by elastic lacing cords, has a Batyline fabric seat which is easily maintained, showerproof and provides full support whilst remaining supple.

The RSX is available in 2 colours, Marine and England, the former being a deep blue and the latter is similar to a royal green. The RSXA is available in 4 colours, Forest green, Ocean blue, Carbon grey and Siegle which is a beige colour, as the word ‘siegle’ is in fact French for ‘biscuit’.
