E-Win Racing Champion Series Gaming Chair Review

As someone who spends a large portion of the day working at a computer, comfort is a huge factor for me when it comes to chairs. My chiropractor keeps telling me that my bed, pillow and computer chair are the most important purchases I can make, since that’s where I’m spending the majority of my time. I’ve suffered through cheap, awful chairs in the past, but as someone who suffers from arthritis and chronic pain, I need to take my long-term health into consideration.

My previous chair felt nice when you first sat in it, but over time you would slowly begin to slouch into weird positions that your back would hate you for later. I knew I needed something with lumbar and neck support, so when E-Win Racing contacted me about reviewing one of their chairs, I jumped at the chance. Their Champion series ergonomic gaming office chair looked like exactly what I needed, and so they sent a unit out for me to test.

 

The box that arrived was massive and quite heavy, which I took as a sign that it’s tough and durable. This particular model, CP-BB3F, comes in a variety of colors, but I received the black version, which looks sleek and stylish but not gaudy and ostentatious like some gaming chairs I’ve seen. The chair was well-packed with plenty of bubble wrap and arrived without any damage. The assembly was quite straightforward, and the package even comes with a pair of white gloves to prevent staining the chair during assembly. Top marks for that!

I’ve never sat in a gaming chair before this, so I didn’t know what to expect. When the whole thing was assembled and I took a seat in it for the first time, I was amazed by the level of comfort, and how my posture seemed to almost immediately improve. The two adjustable pillows for the neck and lower back have a nice firmness that helps to take the pressure off of your neck and spine, which meant that I was able to get work done at my desk and play games for longer periods without excessive pain. The breathable material of the cushions worked well to prevent sweating on hot days. The only negative aspect that I’ve found so far is the wheels – they don’t work very well on carpet and it can be hard to move the chair around your space while you’re sitting in it.

 

The Champion has a very roomy feel to it, and its armrests are very adjustable. You can easily turn them outward or inward, as well as farther back or more towards the front. The gas lift allows you to raise and lower the chair about 4 inches, and the back tilt function allows you to tilt the chair back all the way to 180 degrees, which is nice for watching movies and TV or playing on your phone or tablet. I like that it has all of these options so that you’re not just locked into one position for many hours straight. I also really like the high back of the chair and the side cushions that support the upper back and shoulders.

I’ve used the E-Win Champion gaming chair for about two weeks now, and I have to say that I am very impressed by the quality and comfort of this product. I no longer feel as much pain and achiness when working or gaming for long hours, and my chiropractor approves of the lumbar and neck support so that I’m not undoing all of his hard work. The E-Win Champion has a lot of great features, solid build quality and the best comfort I’ve experienced in any chair, gaming or otherwise. The $299 asking price of this model may put some off, but this is a classic example of getting what you pay for. If you think of it as investing in your long-term spine health and your everyday comfort, I say it’s definitely worth the money. Your back will thank you for it.

E-WIN Champion Series Ergonomic Gaming Office Chair Review

E-WIN Racing was founded in 2016 after being part of a leading OEM office chair manufacturer. They are focused on designing and manufacturing ergonomic “racer” style chairs for both gaming and office use. E-WIN Racing uses the phrase “Quality, but cheap office gaming chairs” to describe their products, and we’re here to find out the accuracy of that statement, at least with the CP-BB3F Gaming Office Chair we had a chance to test.

Packaging & Contents

The chair arrived without any major damage to the box, just the typical scuffs from shipping. The box itself has minimal branding with only “E-WIN” stamped on two sides, and there is product information on two sides in the form of stickers.

Closed Box

Product Info

Branding

When opening the box there is a cardboard sheet underneath and covering the 5-point aluminum base, which separates the base from the rest of the chair for protection. The next layer is the chair’s back, which is laying on top of the seat and the box of assembly components. As you can see, there was a little room for the different parts to move during shipment. The empty space could be filled with foam blocks or something similar to create a more snug fit, but regardless, everything arrived in good condition.

Chair Seat & Accessory Box

The small box has the majority of parts for assembly. These include the assembly manual, gloves, bolts, L-shaped hex wrenches, casters, hinge covers, gas lift, gas lift cover, and the seat mount/adjustment mechanism. There are also some pre-installed bolts that are used for assembly and we’ll see those a little later. The included gloves were an unexpected surprise when opening the box. The gloves are good for initial assembly to prevent skin oils from getting on the chair for oil-free pictures. However, once the chair is assembled and being used, it’s basically inevitable that skin oils will make contact with the chair.

Assembly

Assembly begins by removing the four pre-installed bolts in the backrest. Now, the backrest can be placed on the seat, in line with the hinges. The four bolts that were removed are used to attach the backrest to the seat.

Once the backrest and seat are assembled, there are a couple of hinge covers to hide the hinge and bolts. These covers just use a single bolt for mounting and a hole cap to hide the bolt.

Next, we have to mount the tilt and lock mechanism to the bottom of the seat to get it ready for mounting on the base. There are four pre-installed bolts that need to be removed from the seat to make room for the tilt and lock mechanism, then use those same bolts to attach the mechanism to the seat. It’s also worth noting that the armrests are attached to the seat with four bolts and there are slots in the armrests for mounting….we’ll mention this again later.

Now we need to assemble the chair’s base, which is really simple and doesn’t require any tools. The first step is pushing the casters into the ends of the 5-point base.

Next, the gas lift is installed by simply pushing it into the center hole of the base and placing the cover over it.

The last step is to set the backrest and seat assembly onto the gas lift of the base. That’s it! After maybe fifteen minutes we have a fully assembled E-WIN gaming/office chair.

Build Quality

The overall build quality seems really good.

I can appreciate the metal components such as the steel frame and aluminum base.

The PU leather fits tight around the cold molded foam, and the seams look well-stitched. The combination of diamond pattern and dimples in the seat and on the backrest will help the contact areas be a little more breathable than flat leather.

PU Leather, Seam, & Zipper

Diamond & Dimple Pattern

The casters also aren’t the basic cheap plastic casters seen on most office chairs, the E-WIN casters’ two wheels are slightly softer and rubbery. This gives them a little more grip on hard floors, and they actually roll pretty well in my carpeted room as well.

Casters Installed

The lowest quality parts of the chair, in my opinion, are the plastic pieces. Particularly, the plastic parts around the hinge are really thin and flimsy. The plastic parts of the armrests seem to be better in quality, but there is quite a bit of a wiggle room in the armrests.

Ergonomics

There are many adjustments that can be made to the chair to better suit the individual. The back pillow can be adjusted to sit anywhere between the neck pillow and seat to ensure support and comfort. Also, both the neck and back pillows can be removed completely if you wish.

Pillows On

Pillows Off

One adjustment feature that I really like is the reclining backrest, which can recline to an almost flat laying position. Before using this chair, I’ve always had to use the tilt adjustment for reclining, which tilts both the seat and backrest together. The E-WIN Champion chair’s tilt feature is really tight, even with the tension knob turned all the way on its loosest setting. Now, once you recline the backrest some, it becomes easier to tilt the chair back and rock. I suppose the tightness of the tilt adjustment helps to reinforce good posture, but for those that enjoy a loose tilt feature and easy rocking, this could be a turn-off.

Reclined

The gas lift adjusts the seat by 4 inches which makes it so that the top of the seat can be between 19 and 23 inches off the ground. The lowest setting is higher than I’m used to, but it positions me so that my feet are flat on the ground with my knees at a right angle.

Gas Lift Lowered

Gas Lift Raised

The armrests can adjust in four different ways: forward/backward, left/right, vertical, and rotation. The forward and backward adjustment is around 2 inches, the left and right adjustment is maybe an inch, vertical adjustment is around 3.5 inches, and the rotation adjustment spins the ends about an inch in either direction. Also, when assembling the chair I noticed that the armrests are attached to the bottom of the seat with bolts that are placed through slots in the metal. This means that there is slightly more adjustment to be had in the left/right direction if you loosen those bolts and slide the armrests.

Armrest Lateral Adjustment Controls

Warranty

Below is a quote from the E-WIN Racing warranty page.

EwinRacing promises to repair or replace any EwinRacing product or component that is found to be defective in material or workmanship within five (5) years from the date of original purchase so long as you, the original purchaser, still owns it. EwinRacing further warrants the steel frame for a period of ten (10) years. This is your sole and exclusive remedy. This warranty is subject to the provisions below. This warranty is effective with purchases made on or after February 28, 2017. Purchases made before that date have a different warranty term, please consult your retailer.

Conclusion

The most important thing everyone should keep in mind when looking to buy a new gaming chair or office chair is that comfort is subjective. All of the adjustment options available on the CP-BB3F will help broaden the range of types of individuals that could benefit from and enjoy the chair. The chair definitely forces me to sit with good posture, which is a good thing especially since I’m notorious for bad desk posture. I like the feel of the PU leather, memory foam, and how the edges of the seat and back wrap around me slightly.

The E-WIN Champion Series CP-BB3F Chair has an MSRP of $379 but happens to be on sale for $309. I’ve never spent more than around $100 on a chair before, so the price was surprising to me at first glance on E-WIN’s website. However, after using the chair I realized that the materials used and available features are what makes the Champion Series chair a chair in the $300-400 price range.

For me, the only real downside to the chair was the thin plastic parts covering the hinges on the side of the chair. I feel like those parts could be thicker and more sturdy for a chair pricing at close to $400 MSRP. However, this isn’t a deal breaker for whether or not I’d recommend the chair, just something the consumer should be aware of before purchase.

Overall, I feel like the E-WIN Champion Series CP-BB3F chair is a solid and comfortable chair that could be used for gaming, office or any setting that requires sitting for an extended time.

E-WIN CHAMPION SERIES CPH GAMING CHAIR REVIEW

Introduction

 

“It’s just a chair isn’t it?” I hear you say when the the term ‘gaming chair’ is used…

Well, you definitely could said that or as I would say, always looking on the positive side, “a new opportunity to explore another frontier in gaming peripheral”.

OK, perhaps I am glamourising it a bit too much, but in recent years there has been an ever increasing interest in ‘gaming’ focused chairs that have a racing / bucket seat design.

You only have to have a quick glance around a major LAN event (such as Insomnia Gaming festival) to see the many gamers use these well built gaming chairs as a miniature trolley to transsport their rigs to the venue  as well as to perch themselves on for the weekend.

But what makes these gaming chairs so good? Do they blow conventional office equipment out of the water?

Well, let’s start by answering that with a shallow observation: they look pretty awesome!

The E-Win Champion Series CPH - you can't deny it looks pretty cool!

The E-Win Champion Series CPH – you can’t deny it looks pretty cool!

 

But surely, looks alone cannot carry you to gaming chair comfort nirvana can it?

Good question – let’s find out….

Product Assembly

 

E-Win have kindly subsidised the cost of the review sample of the E-Win Champion Series CPH gaming chair so we are able to bring you our review today.

First up, let’s take a look a the build process for the chair from unboxing to completion.

The chair arrived in a large, heavy but relatively square package adorned with ‘E-Win’ tape over the box – there was no guessing what was going to be inside:

E-Win Champion Series CPH - Boxed

E-Win Champion Series CPH – Boxed

Keen to crack the beast out of its lair, I ignore the warning of not to use a knife to open the tape.  “I’ll be careful” I thought as I used a sharp kitchen knife to tentatively split the tape at the seams.  Thankfully E-Win anticipated numpties like me might be a bit over zealous to get into the box by placing a good tactical shield of cardboard on the top of package.  Good job, because, if you look at the picture below closely, I put in a nice knife score into package that would have otherwise gone into the chair’s fabric:

E-Win Champion Series CPH - Unboxing

E-Win Champion Series CPH – Unboxing

First out of the box is the star-shaped base.  Immediately you can see this is going to be a pleasure of a product in terms of build quality right out of the gate.  The E-Win Champion Series CPH gaming chair base is made of solid aluminium and you can tell this is a solid foundation that will last for years to come:

E-Win Champion Series CPH - Base

E-Win Champion Series CPH – Base

Once the upper layer of cardboard and the base is removed, you can now see into the contents of the box.  This reveals a very well packaged chair that comes in two distinct parts – the backrest and the seat tray.  This is a clever piece of packaging which minimises the amount of effort that the customer needs to undertake to complete assembly:

E-Win Champion Series CPH - Box Contents

E-Win Champion Series CPH – Box Contents

After taking the backrest out of the packaging and propping it up against the wall for later, you get the first glimpse of the sheer build quality and materials used in this chair – they are off the scale.  The smell, touch and look of backrest alone was staggering – I was completely unprepared to experience this level of quality that has been put into this chair.

The chair features high-quality leather with a special diamond gridded / breathable centre to allow for maximum comfort and to minimise undesirable human ‘stickage’ to chair itself.  The backrest comes with the neck and lumber cushions pre-installed which are kept in position with straps, that clip together on the rear side of the chair:

E-Win Champion Series CPH - Backrest

E-Win Champion Series CPH – Backrest

Next out of the box is the all-important seat tray.  Continuing the use of the diamond-gridded breathable material is a welcome addition to leather chair which would otherwise see you permanently adhered to the chair after an epic gaming session.  We can see the ‘4D’ armrests which can adjust in height, rotation and slide backwards and forwards to make sure your elbows and forearms are in the perfect position.

The material used on the arm rests is also top-notch – these are not hard plastic, rather these feel like a hard ‘foam’ texture which provide a comfortable amount of ‘give’ to them, while still remaining rigid enough to serve their purpose.  The seat tray itself is a ‘bucket’ seat design with raised sides and features a nice thick layer of memory foam.

This feels quite tough at first, like most memory foam products but will adjust itself over time the longer you use it.  The tension and resistance it gives is a testament to how well this product will keep its shape over time.  Finally the two struts that connect the seat tray with the backrest is covered with with a foam/paper material to protect it during transit:

Last out of the box is a tool-kit required to assemble the remainder of the chair:

E-Win Champion Series CPH - Tool Kit

E-Win Champion Series CPH – Tool Kit

After unpacking the tool-kit, we have a pair of side-bolt plastic covers, the seat life lever and reclining stiffness adjuster, the class-4 gas lift cylinder and telescopic plastic cover, 5 high-quality caster wheels, a pair of gloves, Allen keys and bolts required for assembly.  E-Win have thought of everything here and no other 3rd party tools are required for assembly:

Lastly, inside the tool kit are the instructions for assembly.  The layout of this single folded piece of paper is somewhat odd and reads like playing a game of snakes and ladders; you start in the top left and follow the arrows in a ‘snaking’ pattern down the page – very odd.  This threw me off as I was expecting to go down to the next line and started trying to perform step ‘6’ instead of step ‘4’.  The photos are a little blurry and not very helpful at times.  My best advice – use this as a guide and let your intuition guide you – I made much better progress this way!

E-Win Champion Series CPH - Instructions

Moving onto the assembly photos,  I place the seat tray onto the floor, remove the packaging from the struts and line up the best rest.  This isn’t the easiest task at this stage as there is nothing to support the back rest at this point.

There are pre-punched holes in the leather with the bolts pass through to screw into the threads below the surface.  Be careful of the bolt alignment at this stage; as you can see in the photo below, I hadn’t got these completely square and needed to unscrew and re-align this before continuing.

E-Win Champion Series CPH - Side Bolts - Left

E-Win Champion Series CPH – Side Bolts – Left

Once the first side is aligned properly and in position, the other side is much easier to align and screw in.  Pictured here is one of the side guards and screw – note that these are different sizes – the one with the larger angled shape at the bottom goes on the right; don’t make the mistake I did and get these two the wrong way around 🙂 :

E-Win Champion Series CPH - Side Bolts - Right

E-Win Champion Series CPH – Side Bolts – Right

Next up, we place the chair on its back so we can access the underside.  Again, we see some more outstanding build quality – the seat cushion is suspended on a series of heavy duty straps which provides additional support and comfort during use.  Some heavy duty bolts need removing at this point in preparation for mounting the seat adjustment lever assembly:

E-Win Champion Series CPH - Underneath

E-Win Champion Series CPH – Underneath

We are then able to mount the E-Win Champion Series CPH gaming chair seat adjustment assembly using the bolts we removed in the previous step.  Make sure you face the ‘Front’ in the direction the arrow is pointing towards the front of the seat.  Thankfully this was something I was able to manage to get correct first time 🙂 :

E-Win Champion Series CPH - Seat Adjustment Assembly

E-Win Champion Series CPH – Seat Adjustment Assembly

After the Seat Adjustment Assembly has been installed, we move back to the base again.  Turning it upside down, we grab the x5 caster wheels from earlier and push them into the slots provided – simples:

E-Win Champion Series CPH - Caster Installation

Next we flip the base back around the right-way up and insert the gas lift piston into position.  Insert the wider end into the hole provided:

E-Win Champion Series CPH - Gas Lift

E-Win Champion Series CPH – Gas Lift

…then add the telescopic gas lift piston cover over the top:

E-Win Champion Series CPH - Gas Lift Cover

E-Win Champion Series CPH – Gas Lift Cover

Finally, we align the hole on the seat adjustment assembly on the seat base with the gas lift piston.  Tip – it greatly helps to have a second person hold the chair while you line the two parts together.  Et Voilà! You have now successfully assembled the E-Win Champion Series CPH gaming chair!

E-Win Champion Series CPH - Build Complete

What a beast – not only does it look the part but it is built like a tank!  I look forward to years of gaming with this baby 🙂

But how does it perform?  Is it comfortable?

Well let’s take this baby for a spin and find out…

Testing and Performance

 

So we know the chair looks amazing, features fantastic build quality and materials but this would be all for nothing is it doesn’t serve its purpose as a great gaming perch.

First, let’s take a look at the official specifications and dimensions from the manufacturer:

E-Win Champion Series CPH - Dimensions

E-Win Champion Series CPH – Dimensions

  • Foam Type:High Density Seperated Foaming
  • Foam Density: 55kg/m3

But how does this perform in practice?

Fear not reader, you do not have to read a wall of text about my thoughts and opinions on this chair.

Instead we offer for your viewing pleasure, a video review of the beast where I test drive and show you what it has to offer.

17 minutes too long?  TL:DR summary:

  • Amazing build quality
  • Looks fantastic
  • Outstanding materials used
  • Initially uncomfortable – memory foam takes a while to ‘bed in’
  • Expensive for what is essentially ‘a chair’
  • If you are looking for pure comfort and adjustability, you may be disappointed vs a high-end office chair

Conclusion and Rating

 

Before concluding and scoring the review, I would like to take the opportunity to again extend a massive thank you to E-Win for subsidising the cost of the review sample of this excellent gaming chair so that we could provide you with this article. You can check out E-win’s extensive catalogue of amazing looking gaming chairs on their website, here.

E-Win have ticked all the boxes any gamer would be primarily looking for with the E-Win Champion Series CPHgaming chair  – amazing looks, premium material and a build quality that would make a tank blush.

After the initial honeymoon period subsides, however, you do start to analyse your decision in a bit more depth.  Taking cost, initial comfort and limited areas of adjustment into consideration, this slightly tarnishes what could have been a home run for E-Win.

The summary of our findings are as below:

Pros:

  • Incredible looks – the all black design of E-Win Champion Series CPH gaming chair and use of premium materials / design is fantastic.  Full marks in this area – this is a chair you would proudly wheel into a LAN party any day of the week
  • Build quality – off the scale.  I cannot praise this enough; the combination of steel frame, memory foam, suspended seat tray, base and casters are absolutely insane.  The term ‘built like a tank’ gets thrown around far too often but in this case, it is entirely justified
  • Armrests – good level of adjustment (height, rotation and forward/backwards sliding) and comfortable to rest forearms and elbows on.  Plenty of space to get my chunky tree-trunk thighs under to sit cross legged = win
  • Recline – this gaming chair reclines in a nearly horizontal position.  Use your imagination to put this to good use 😉
  • Silence – smooth rotation, movement on casters and no squeaking when sitting down or standing up.  All indications of great build quality
  • 5-Year Warranty

 

Cons:

  • With an RRP €309 on E-Win’s European site, this is a very expensive chair.  You can, however, use code RQ on https://www.ewinracing.eu for a 10% discount
  • Comfort – this is not the most comfortable chair I’ve ever used initially.  The memory foam takes time to ‘train’ before it becomes comfortable.  Even once adjusted, I fear, for this price a high-end office chair would have the edge but this likely applies to most gaming chairs
  • Weight – while the build quality is fantastic, the weight is not.  If you are intending to take this thing to LANs regularly, you will be in for a tough time lifting in / out of the car
  • Limited ergonomic adjustment – whilst better than most gaming chairs, the bucket seat combined with lack of seat tray lateral / tilt adjustment means the design favours style over comfort to a degree

The E-Win Champion Series CPH is an outstaning looking chair, utilising excellent materials and providing a build quality that is hard to put at fault. The inherrient flaws of a gaming chair design, however, are still apparent and therefore comfort and limited ergonmic adjustment take a hit as a result. Despite these small shortcomings, E-Win Champion Series CPH is still an excellent gaming chair and is worthy of the RageQuitters Epic Award:Ragequitters Epic Award

E-Win Champion Series Gaming Desk Chair Impressions

One of the most important components of your gaming PC setup, is your desk chair. Sitting at a desk for extended periods of time is bad for your health, but a good gaming chair, like a Champion Series gaming chair from E-Win, can help limit the effects of marathon sessions at your desk. After about a month of kicking back in one of these chairs for both work and play, I can definitely say that my body notices the difference.

The first thing I noticed while assembling the Champion Series chair that E-Win sent me was that quality is clearly their top priority. The materials are all tougher than you’d expect, the stitching is all strong and clean, and overall the chair feels solid. Assembly itself was pretty simple, and all the parts fit together easily and securely. Upon resting my keister on the Champion Series chair, I could immediately feel my body rejoicing as it was finally properly supported.

I’m a bit embarrassed to admit that my previous desk chair at home was a whim purchase at Office Depot during my freshman year of college. Needless to say, it had seen better days, and it definitely wasn’t doing anything for my posture or rump. Having said that, I’ve been lucky enough to have an employer that has supplied me with a variety of high-quality desk chairs at work over the years. The Champion Series chair was a welcomed upgrade at home, and it easily rivals the most expensive office chairs I’ve had at work for a fraction of the price.

At the surface, the Champion Series chair has a pretty standard set of features: swivel base with wheels, gas cylinder for controlling the height of the chair, a lockable spring-loaded joint for leaning the chair back, and height adjustable armrests. It also comes with several features you won’t find on most chairs. The armrests can also be moved laterally (front, back, left, right) and rotated slightly to maximize comfort. Two cushions can be adjusted up or down to support your lower back and neck, or they can be removed.

One of my favorite features is the fully reclinable back. With a pull of a lever, you can recline back in the chair so that the back and base of the seat are nearly flat. The first time I tried this, I felt like I was doing a trust-fall exercise and I was a little worried that I’d topple right over once my center of gravity tipped too far to the rear of the seat. Luckily, E-Win thought of this and mounted the seat closer to the rear, so that it still properly supports your weight when fully reclined. This also puts the front of the seat further out over the legs of the base, so I find myself placing my feet flat on the floor rather than on the legs. The only downfall of this is that it makes leaning the entire seat back quite a bit more difficult. All-in-all, I think this is a better design, but perhaps E-Win will improve on this in the future.

After using the Champion Series chair for a while, I’ve noticed my posture is much better when sitting in it compared to any other office chair I’ve used. Its design almost makes it uncomfortable to sit any other way than straight up, no leaning or slouching, and feet flat on the floor. This is partially due to the aforementioned placement of the seat on the base, but mostly due to how the chair curves around you. The chair holds you in place a little more like a car seat than a desk chair, only a little less squishy. If you try to lean to the side or sit sideways, the stiff sides of the seat make it uncomfortable forcing you to sit with better posture. I consider this to be a good feature, however, one must be careful when purchasing a chair like this since it must be sized properly. I’m a smaller guy, and if my shoulders were an inch or two wider, I’d probably feel cramped in it. E-Win’s web site has very detailed dimensions that should not be overlooked when choosing a chair.

Overall, E-Win’s Champion Series chair is comfortable from the start to finish of even the longest gaming sessions, and it is one of the sturdiest chairs I’ve sat in. The premium materials, top-notch build quality, and the inclusion of some unique features make it a competitor in the higher-end desk chair market at a more budget friendly price. These points paired with the more professional appearance of this particular design, make the Champion Series chair a pretty solid option for this middle-aged gamer.

You can currently find this chair on E-Win’s web site for $309 (normally $379), and if you use our coupon code “CoOp”, you will take an additional 10% off. The coupon code also works on other chairs as well as gaming accessories.

If you spend a lot of time in an office, then you probably spend a lot of time sitting on your butt. The same can be said for PC gamers and YouTube and Twitch streamers. A comfortable office chair is a must for those long hours of sitting on that butt, but your standard office chair can costs you a thousand dollars or more if you want a really nice one. When the EwinRacing team reached out to us and offered us one of their Champion Series gaming chairs, we were skeptical of how comfortable their chairs could be at such a low price point of US$289 (10% less if you use code TERMINAL at checkout).

If you spend a lot of time in an office, then you probably spend a lot of time sitting on your butt. The same can be said for PC gamers and YouTube and Twitch streamers. A comfortable office chair is a must for those long hours of sitting on that butt, but your standard office chair can costs you a thousand dollars or more if you want a really nice one. When the EwinRacing team reached out to us and offered us one of their Champion Series gaming chairs, we were skeptical of how comfortable their chairs could be at such a low price point of US$289 (10% less if you use code TERMINAL at checkout).

Easy Assembly

The chair shipped fast and arrived in a pretty big box. Assembly instructions, hand tools, and even a pair of white gloves are included and made assembly a fairly quick and easy process. From start to finish it only took us around fifteen minutes for the full assembly of the gaming chair, and a few extra bolts and washers are included in case anything is missing. Below you will find our unboxing and assembly video of the gaming chair, and for the record parts of it are sped up by us. I really can’t move that fast.

Cushy Comfort

Once we planted our butt in the fully assembled chair, we were pleasantly surprised at how soft and comfortable the gaming chair was. The form fitting back almost felt like a wrap around racing seat in a sports car. The chair shipped with a lumbar support cushion and head rest cushion already in place. Personally, I suffer from long time back injuries and the lumbar support isn’t for me, but it only took a few seconds to undo the clasps holding that in place. If you are wanting to kick back and relax, maybe watch some of your favorite streams on YouTube, the head rest cushion is a nice touch.

Adjustments Galore

Once assembled, the chair has several adjustments to make it as comfortable as possible. You have your standard height adjustment thanks to the sturdy hydraulic piston under you, and for those longer legged folks, it goes fairly high. The arm rests are also adjustable. They can be raised and lowered, swiveled in and out, and even extended. We borrowed this image from the EwinRacing website to better explain the armrests.

Kickback and Relax

The vertical back of the chair has a huge range of motion, with the ability to lay it down almost flat. With 85-155 degrees of motion, you can find just about any angle you wish to watch those gaming streams or type out that report or blog. You could lay it back far enough if you need a nice afternoon nap, but don’t tell your boss I said that.

Comfort and Looks at an Affordable Price

We have used quite a few different office chairs over the years, and most weren’t cheap. Dropping $500 or $600 on a decent chair is usually the norm, and as much use as they get they are generally worth the investment. With the EwinRacing Champion Series gaming chairs, you get great quality and comfort at a much more affordable price.

Great job EwinRacing Team and thanks for this awesome chair!

E-WIN CHAMPION SERIES GAMING CHAIR REVIEW

E-WIN Champion Series Racing Chair

It wasn’t all that long ago that Steve took a look at one of E-Win’s Champion Series PC gaming chairs and now, I’m going back for a look at a slightly different version of the chair turned at least one of our team into a “chair snob”.

Originally an OEM furniture manufacturer, E-Win Racing has been around for a few years now. Since 2016 they’ve been wheeling chairs into our homes and offices that will certainly get you noticed. As Steve pointed out in his review of the all black Champion chair, E-Win’s prior experience is hardly limited to the gaming market, so they really ought to know a few things about keeping people comfy. Four series of chairs are already available to suit a variety of players. These include the Champion, Calling, Hero, and Flash Series.

The Champion line of chairs comes in at $289.00/€249.00/£221 with some mild variation based on design choice. My particular test sample currently retails for £249 on E-Win’s official site. This lands a substantial discount when compared to something like the Noble Epic. While this particular model might be part of the same line as Steve’s previous Champion series review, there are a few noticeable differences.

SPECIFICATION

  • SKU: Champion Series/CP-BOW3D
  • 4D Adjustable Poly Urethane Arm Rests
  • PU Leather
  • Height Adjustable
  • 120MM Class 4 Gas Lift – good up to 330lbs (150 kg)
  • Cold Molding Foam
  • Aluminum 5-star wheelbase
  • Steel chair frame
  • Tilt Lock and Tilt Control Mechanism
  • Lever Operated Back Recliner
  • 20.9in (53cm) wide by 22in (56cm) deep by 36.6in (93cm) high seating
  • Seating adjustable angle 85 degrees to 155 degrees
  • 360-degree swivel
  • Protective caster wheels
  • Neck and lumbar pillows

Getting this monster dumped on your front doorstep is a little intimidating for anybody who’s not had an opportunity to put together a gaming chair before. Thankfully, E-Win impressed right out the box. The Champion Series is packed with a fairly minimal amount of superfluous wrapping. Instead, you’ll find the chair is snugly fitted into the accompanying package, and extremely easy to extract. Anything smaller than the base is boxed away to prevent a side quest to find the correct screw head. Components are correctly parcelled into appropriate packages and E-Win even throw in a pair of rubber tipped gloves to make things a little easier to handle. The forethought E-Win put into the packaging speaks volumes about the way the Champion series is built and makes the assembly as painless as it could be, even for an IKEA-phobe.

After around 15 minutes you should find the E-Win series up and running. Putting the pieces of this chair together is, in my experience, simple enough and the result feels satisfyingly solid. A total of ten hex headed screws are all that is needed, alongside a little lifting, to put complete the Champion series build. The entire frame is intended to hold up to 150KG, so handles my paltry frame of around 60KG without any issue. Putting my own posterior down, this E-Win chair feels roomier than I’ve become accustomed to, even compared to other gaming chairs. The Champion series is not the largest chair on the market. It is not even the biggest seat in E-Win’s own range but it is still sufficiently generous to accommodate my 180cm frame easily. While other furniture sometimes falls a little short when it comes to my back and neck, the E-Win Champion series is tall enough that it always provides a level of functional support, especially when compared to more entry-level options.

The addition of a lumbar support and adjustable neck cushion to the E-Win Champion is another nice touch that elevates the series above my own personal comparisons and entry-level chairs. These cushions are fully adjustable, or removable if you need to readjust them. Cushions might sound like an unnecessary option but they are an addition that I didn’t even know I needed until I had them. The Champion series neck cushion is not the only adjustable area of this gaming chairs The 4D movement of the attached armrests allows gamers to elevate, slide, and rotate the armrests to a silly number of configurations. The rotation, in particular, of these attachments, allows them to do more than just go up and down or forward and back. It gives me real room to get the Champion Gaming chair where I actually want it, rather than settling for where it best fits among my desk clutter.

As if that wasn’t quite enough choice, E-Win has included a reclining feature to the Champion series that allows it to throw back anywhere from 85 to 155 degrees. That’s pretty much enough to sleep on if you so wish. From a functional standpoint, this gives the E-Win room to recline to your own preference and utilizing the reclining feature is as simple as pulling a lever located on the side of the chair. It’s simple and safe. All the moving component are guarded by chair’s side covers and the entire thing feels solid when you kick back. Let’s be clear though, 155 degrees is an extreme and nobody needs a chair that they can sleep on. However, I really could take a quick nap on this if I felt like it.

The E-Win Champion series gaming chair is an impressive piece of kit. The chair’s cold molded foam and multi cushion design create a wrap around that provide support from every direction. The quality of the material and stitching here feel as solid as the steel frame, while the configuration options are excellent. Construction was easy, while some impressive design and packaging features meant that I didn’t waste my day deciphering instructions. All in, and the color aside, E-Win continue to produce a line of chairs that impress for the price. While this might not come with the street cred of a Noble, you’re going to be indoors. If you want a quality gaming chair that will let you kick back in front of your rig then the E-Win Champion series is it.

Pros

  • Solid Construction
  • Very easy to put together
  • 4D armrests are a great addition

Cons

  • Not for tiny spaces
  • Reclining feature is probably a little more than is required
  • This particular color option isn’t going to win any fashion awards

Review: Just in Time for E3 – E-Win Gaming Chair!

It’s the most exciting time of year for gamers as E3 is in full swing. New game announcements, surprises, trailers, and more are taking the internet by storm.

But to get ready for all these excellent new games coming out you might be needing a new gaming chair and Ewin Racing has some great models for you to marathon game in.

Previously, we reviewed another gaming chair from OPSEAT and in many ways the E-win chair we received is very similar.  The designs are a lot alike, the components and set up are all similar. But, to be honest, E-win has a slight edge. It’s more comfortable.

The Championship series chair we have is fully adjustable in nearly any way you can think of. It’s got a steal frame, adjustable height, reclining back, and an uber comfie cold molded high density memory foam chair. I think that’s the key to the comfort. I didn’t even realize it but I had been sitting in it for more than a few hours.

The chair have is orange which I was not so sure about as I’m not the biggest fan of that color but honestly? It looks great. Besides that, there are several different colors to choose from so you’re likely to find whatever suits your fancy.

I really love the chair and definitely recommend checking these offerings out if you are in the market for a new gaming chair. It’s really comfortable, looks great, and is perfect for long term gaming sessions.

Right now for E3, EWIN is running a 20% off special using code E3. Alternatively just click the banner at the upper right and use code PCB for 10% off if the E3 offer has ended.

I really love this chair and have been using it constantly. At the end of the day it’s going to boil down to your preferences, price, design, etc. Go with what you like but to be honest, I really don’t think you can go wrong with any of the E-Win Racing Gaming Chairs.

E-WIN FLASH-XL GAMING CHAIR REVIEW

For years I have only ever used standard office furniture you can get at almost any supply store. More often than not, I would pick up a cheap chair and have it start breaking down on me within a year or so. Now, however, many companies have entered the market sporting gaming chairs with a design reminiscent of car racing seats.

It seems almost everywhere you look online you will find someone sitting one of them, and it becomes hard to not notice the trend of people using them. When I was offered to review an E-Win gaming chair, I was both excited to have a new chair but hesitant due to the inherent designs of them. Still, I was hoping this would be a comfortable replacement for my current chair.

First I should probably explain the condition of my old chair. I purchased it years ago from a local office supply store for about $300. What attracted me to get it was that it was comfortable with my height and size. Being 6 foot 5 inches tall, many chairs only support my lower back when I lean back. Likewise I have a habit of crossing my legs while in my chair when using my computer.

Within a matter of a couple of years it took quite a bit of abuse. Between 3 home moves, 6 cats, dozens of people jumping into it, and many drunken gaming nights, the chair began to fall apart. First the chair began to lean off slightly to one side. Soon after the chair began to creek when moving in any direction and over time it became louder. Worse yet, the fake leather laminate would peal off easily and I would have to spend a considerable amount of time finding every piece that came off as it easily stuck to my clothing and arms. Needless to say, it was time for a new chair.

When the new chair was offered, I opted for the Flash-XL series. Being the largest in size I felt it would be the one that would be the most comfortable for me. Within the week it arrived to my doorstep in a box weighting over 60 pounds. Opening it up I come to find everything neatly placed and each piece being well protected from one another, helping ensure the quality of the product.

Using two different key wrenches throughout the assembly and doing it without any outside help, it was one of the easiest chairs for me to assemble out of every chair I had before. While their was a short list of instructions with images, most of it was relatively self explanatory.

The only minor issue I had during assembly was my own fault. The side guards were not labeled and I didn’t notice one of them was a bit larger sticking out to protect the area where I can pull a leaver in order to lean my chair back much like a car seat. Still, I was happy I got the entire chair assembled within 15 minutes.

The overall quality of the chair is fantastic. Despite not being made with real leather but polyurethane faux leather, it still looks clean and is smooth to the touch. The two pillows for both levels of lumbar support are held using a elastic band, and can be removed if needed.

The base of the chair is built to last, as it’s made completely out of dense aluminum frame. Overall, with most of the package offers I am satisfied. However there are a couple of flaws that stood out to me right off the bat.

Looking over each individual part of the chair I only saw one minor flaw with the product. On the side of the chair, between two of the screws on the side of the backing, the leather had a small puncture.

When checking the box for any type of punctures that could cause this, I found nothing that would indicate this would be from an outside source. Lucky, however, I noticed that when I would assemble it, this hole would be covered and protected so the damage would not potentially worsen.

First and possibly my biggest complaint has to do with the plastic arm rests. Despite the majority of the chair being of a superb build and materials, these feel cheaply made compared to the rest of the chair. More often than not they can rattle a bit, and feel somewhat loose. While the looseness is due to the rests being adjustable, it still is a low part to the overall design.

The other issue I have with the chair is the neck pillow. While lumbar support pillow can be adjusted in height, the neck pillow is mostly stationary. Oftentimes, when I want to use it before putting my full back in the chair, I have to pull it up a bit and hold it in place until my head is leaning into the back of the chair. While disappointing and annoying, the other parts of the chair are great.

Part of my skepticism of these types of chairs have to do with how comfortable they are. Almost every one of them, from the many companies I have tried all had the same issues. The seats have always been too narrow, the front of the seat rises up and pushes into my legs causing discomfort, and the back was always too small or overly rounded, causing me to pinch my shoulders together slightly. Far too often these have caused me to turn away from these type of chairs.

Luckily, with the Flash-XL series, most of these problems have been eliminated. First, the back is tall enough for me to rest my head on is fantastic. Despite my minor complaint with the neck pillow, this is overall welcome as it’s usually very hard to find a chair tall enough for myself.

Likewise I don’t find myself having to adjust my upper body in order to sit right or be comfortable. The lumbar pillow is also a great addition and forces me to sit more upright then hunched over the keyboard like other chairs before. Overall my lower back felt great where a few other chairs hurt it, especially sitting with poor posture.

The lower body is majorly comfortable as well. Unlike the other chairs, the Flash-XL does not push up against the undersides of my legs. Likewise the seat allows me to have my legs spread out just enough to not feel uncomfortable. However, on the sides of the seat the chair does have parts that do stand out on it. The memory foam seat does cause pressure when spreading my legs out too far, which does lead to discomfort on the sides. However, within one full day of working and gaming (about 14 hours), my legs felt fine as long as I wasn’t overly excessive with how far apart my legs were.

Much akin to a normal car seat lever, a lever on the right side allows the back of the chair to lean backwards up to 155 degrees. It was nice being able to do this when I just wanted to take a break from looking at my computer, kicking up my legs on my desk and just relaxing for a moment. The complaint I had with the neck pillow did not apply here as with minimal adjustments, it sat perfectly. However, it’s best to lift the lever completely before tilting back as with a car lever it will make a harsh click and fall backwards roughly if you’re not prepared for it.

One thing of note is that the Flash-XL series sits very high compared to most chairs. At full height my feet lightly touches the floor. This is an experience I’ve never had with something, other than a bar stool. Even at its lowest it still sits higher than most office chairs. For myself, where before my legs went under comfortably my desk, now without tucking my legs under the chair slightly can I fit under it. While not a flaw, in a matter of fact I love the chair sitting higher, some people will need to check the height of their desks in order to make sure that they can sit comfortably.

Where at some points I leave my desktop PC to do work sitting on the couch due to discomfort from my chair before, throughout the last several days of use I have not left the chair to go work elsewhere.

While the price of the chair can be steep for some, for myself its a bit more than I usually would have to spend on a lasting office chair. Is the E-Win Flash-XL chair the best chair I have owned for sitting at my computer? Its tough to say but it does stand out as one of the best I have had within the last 10 years.

It’s hard to find a chair that is comfortable enough and fits my size, and this chair does it very well. While I have yet to see how it lasts over the long term, just from what I have experienced with it in my own home I am thoroughly enjoying my time with it.

Ewin Gaming Chair Review: Seats Taken

Ergonomic office equipment and gaming share a lot of things in common. Unless you’re playing something that demands you stand up and flail your arms about, most of the time you are going to be sitting stationary for long periods of time. And, much like sitting in an office all day, the one thing you want to make sure is that your body doesn’t pay the price for it.

I’ve grown accustomed to sitting down for most of the day. At one point in my life, I was a territory sales rep for a company. This also meant sitting in my car for hours at a time, only to do more sitting once I got home. After that, I was at a more traditional desk job but was free to move about whenever I needed to. Then, it was like going from 0-90 when I hit the gym to train for powerlifting meets. I say this because all of these have contributed to my chronic lower back injuries and pain.

The company Ewin had reached out to me a few weeks ago and expressed interest in having me do a review for their Hero Series gaming chair. Up until that point, the only chairs for gaming I knew were one of those rockers you can get from Target, a $200 office chair, and an L-shape sectional couch. I wondered, could this chair really provide a more ergonomic option for lengthy gaming sessions? Honestly, I was fearful that it would contribute more to the lower back pain that I had continued to experience.

The setup process

The entire setup process took somewhere around forty-five minutes to an hour. The instructions that come with the chair that I received are a general pamphlet. So, not everything aligned exactly as described in the booklet. This led to a few frustrating moments mostly due to differing chair brackets and cloth covering a few screw holes below the armrest.

The biggest difference between the Ewin chair and most other office chairs that I’ve pieced together (I actually did one from Costco just a few months ago) was that most of the mechanical parts were already assembled. Really, it was only placing the brackets that hold the back to the seat, and then applying the base portion with the hydraulic tube that allows the chair to raise and lower.

Material Quality

I will say that the choice in material from Ewin delivers an overall sense of sturdiness. The base of the chair utilizes a five-star design, much like other office chairs. However, the aluminum bars extending from the center are much broader than most that I’ve used.

The chair itself has a steel frame that’s wrapped in cold-molded memory foam. The method for creating this foam (thanks, internet) is essentially to provide a more durable and sturdy lifespan. The lower lumbar and head cushions are wrapped in the same foam, with the whole chair itself covered in polyurethane leather (PU leather).

Design

When I responded to the inquiry regarding a possible review unit, the one thing I didn’t even consider was the chair’s height. Most of the time, when I use an office chair, I ower it as much as possible. It usually fits under my desk and accommodates my wee, little legs. The Ewin Hero chair does stand a bit taller than most, sitting at 53.6″ at its lowest. This was only a minor setback considering the armrests swivel outward, inward, and slide back-and-forth. A button can also lower them, allowing my chair to slide under my desk further.

 

On the right side of the chair, there are two levers to tilt the chair back and adjust the height. A circular tensioner near the center hydraulic can limit or tighten the chair’s tilt.

Comfort is suggestive

If there’s one thing I can’t stand, it’s a mushy mattress. I have to have two flattened pillows, a comforter half-draped over one leg, and a mattress that you can jump on and possibly injure yourself because of its firmness. I say this because, for most people, this doesn’t sound like a place they want to count sheep. But for me, it’s the bed of my dreams, quite literally.

The first thing that I did notice about the Ewin gaming chair was its general firmness. The memory foam, for me anyway, is better than something you would plop down in at any corporate office. I’ve removed, adjusted, and fit the back cushions to fit what I find comfortable. And for the most part, my back has thanked me for it.

I guess what I’m getting at here is there are ways to find a comfortable setting in the chair to fit your needs. It just so happens that moving the backrest to about 105 degrees, tilting the armrests pointed inwards, and relaxing the tension made it a chair well-suited for lengthy hours gaming. This includes using it with the Nintendo Switch undocked, allowing me to play with my arms rested. I also spent a number of hours holding a Switch controller like this, not to mention playing on PC with mouse and keyboard.

Usually, when I get up from sitting down these long periods, my body will attempt to adjust in order to stand upright. However, there was a huge difference between any chair I’ve used and the gaming chairs. The habits I had before, like tucking my right or left leg under me, aren’t accessible given the chair’s design. That may have played a role in it, along with the new cushion, back, and arm features I now have access to.

The one thing that I can suggest to anyone who is going to be making an investment: do your research.

Look up models and compare brands. Find out what features and materials are used. In this case, it was a lucky surprise that worked out great.

EWINRACING CHAMPION SERIES GAMING CHAIR REVIEW

QUALITY AND COMFORT.

I can say that in my decade plus of coverage one thing I have never done is review something I put my butt into. Gaming chairs are a dime a dozen. It seems like everyone has one, and until this review I had never used one. I always thought any old office chair would suffice, no reason to pay the extra money for those colorful seats I saw in all the popular streams on Twitch.

Now after spending a couple weeks with the gaming chair I can say I was wrong, extremely wrong. The EwinRacing gaming chair is the most comfortable seat I have used when checking out games, well outside of a full-on lounger of course. It’s design is sleek and its comfort unparalleled. For those of us that can lose hours sitting at a computer desk or in front of a TV know, comfort is king.

I live for comfort!

MSRP: $349.99
MANUFACTURER: EWINRACING
PRICE I’D PAY: $349.99

When my unit arrived it was in a massive box. Unpacking it was simple and each piece laid out perfectly. Everything needed to assemble it is in the box, including a pair of gloves to keep the nasty grease from getting all over my fingers. Trust me this was one of the most helpful things in the box. Grease from chairs like this is absolutely disgusting to clean up. While the tools are there, I decided to use my own set. Assembly took less than 30 minutes and the instructions were very clear. Anyone could assemble this beast.

Now that it was assembled, it was time for the ultimate test. I am a large guy, most chairs only handle a certain amount of weight. The EwinRacing chair boasts a steel frame that supposedly supports over 300lbs, which is more than enough. I put it through the ringer. Sitting in various positions, plopping down into it, it never budged. This is one solid construction.

What I also love is its design. From pictures you can see the chair conforms around the body, making longer sessions more comfortable. I used this chair for a full eight-hour workday and my back thanked me for it. The lower lumbar support pillow is extremely comfortable as well as being adjustable. It really helps for long sessions. The chair can also recline back and forward giving the perfect angle for extended sessions.

Not everything is perfect though. The head rest pillow feels almost useless. I could never find a good spot to rest my neck into it. It was always too close, or too far. The arm rests also have issues. While I love that they are completely adjustable, they feel a little loose in practice. I could adjust their height, angle, and even slide them in and out, but they wobble a little too much. Especially when in comparison to how solid the rest of the design is. At first I thought I had broken them, but after some research I realized I was not the only one having issues.

Another great thing about EwinRacing chairs is their design. They offer them in various designs and colors. I was able to get the red and black design, which is perfect as those are my favorite combination of colors. As I mentioned earlier the way it conforms to my body is also stellar. While I have not had the opportunity to compare this to other gaming chairs, it simply blows my standard office chair out of the water. The comfort is unmatched.

One thing I would like to see added is a leg rest at some point. Nothing would be better than reclining with my feet up after a long work day playing some Overwatch. While it is a nitpick, it is still something I would love to see.

The EwinRacing Gaming Chair is more than worth its price tag. As someone who spends an abundance of time sitting in a chair in front of a screen it has done wonders for my back support. No longer do I get out of my chair reaching for my lower back. The design is great and its construction is super solid. I feel like this chair will last me years and years to come. If you are in the market for a new gaming or office chair I recommend dropping the few extra dollars and picking one up. As I get older I realize that comfort in my favorite hobby, as well as my day-to-day life is imperative.

  • Comfortable in long sessions
  • Sturdy design
  • Adjustable settings
  • Looks great
BAD
