Garage List
No idea on a number, but I'm sure they aren't light. You have leather on high quality foam on top of 20-way movement mechanics plus heated and massage pieces, and that doesn't count the belts and hardware to allow them to fold and move forward for backseat access. Surely there are lighter seats available if that's an important factor. Luxury trumps lightness to the majority of the 6er crowd, myself included.

The reason I ask is because of this article
They are supposed to be lightweight

Just out of curiosity, why does it matter? Is it for more speed or does lightweight help make it more comfortable? Also is 115lbs considered light?
