E-Win Champion Series Gaming Chair Review – Sitting Done Right

 

We’ve been using the E-Win Champion Series gaming chair for a week. Should you consider one of these for your office or home gaming set up?

Read our review to find out.

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.

GOOD
  • Comfortable in long sessions
  • Sturdy design
  • Adjustable settings

EWin Champion Series Gaming Chair Review – Comfort and Stability

ewin champion series gaming chair review

I’ve had my fair share of terrible office chairs. “A chair’s a chair,” right? Wrong. There’s something to be said for spending a little bit more time and money finding a good gaming chair, something that will provide support, stability, and comfort, especially when you spend a lot of time in front of a computer or TV. Most of my waking hours are spent in front of at least one of these two screens, so I jumped at the opportunity when Ewin Racing offered one of their Champion Series gaming chairs for review.

The chair arrived in a fairly large box. This gaming chair is a good sized piece of furniture, so be prepared to have a mildy annoyed UPS driver. After lugging the package inside, I set out to put the gaming chair together. Assembly is pretty easy, and most of it came already put together. I simply had to attach the seat back to the bottom, assemble the base, and put it all together. As easy as it is, I’d recommend two people for the job, just to help hold the pieces steady while screwing them in. The package comes with everything you need to put it together, so from the moment you get the box, you can set up your gaming chair without any delay.

In order to offer a great amount of stability and comfort, the seat portion of the gaming chair is made of a solid steel frame and high-density memory foam. This isn’t the cheap stuff, which means the bucket seat feels like a hug. I’m relatively average weight, and I never felt that the chair was either providing too much give in the cushion, nor too firm to be comfortable. If Goldilocks were to sit in this chair, I’m sure she’d say it was just right. As the balance between my couch (way too soft), and my little plastic desk chair (way too hard), Ewin Racing provides a seat that feels great.

Adjusts to Fit You

The Champion Series gaming chair is very adjustable as well, to ensure that any person sitting in it can feel comfortable. The armrests move in four dimensions (swivel, in and out, back and forward, up and down), and though I am more than happy to have the ability to fine tune where they seat, the number of moving parts make these feel like the cheapest part of the chair. There’s a height adjustment that can raise or lower the seat by more than four inches, which is a pretty significant amount. For a tall person like myself, there’s even a point where the chair can get too high for me and my feet dangle just above the ground.

A recline feature allows you to kick the seat back up to 155 degrees, and a tilt function lets you lean back slightly with adjustable tension. leaning the seat back a little bit took the chair from daytime working to evening relaxing very quickly, though I didn’t dare go back too far. The five-point base offers some stability, the center pole on the bottom of the chair seems like it is too far forward to allow for a comfortable full lean. Admittedly the chair never fell over while I was reclining in it, but there’s still a fear of what might happen if a kitten were to jump on me and throw the weight distribution off. The chair is actually engineered to support this full recline though, so that phobia is merely psychological.

A couple of pads come with the gaming chair, one for lumbar support on your back and a pillow for your head. The lumbar support is a great piece and the positioning is easily adjustable using the straps that attach it to the chair. As someone who tends to slouch way too much, it has really helped with my posture. The head/neck pillow, on the other hand, feels entirely pointless. It’s nearly impossible to adjust the position as it always slides down, and it’s far too small to really provide any added support to the head/neck area. It’s definitely more useful when reclining a little bit, so I’m glad the option is included, and it’s easy to remove if it ever starts to annoy me too much.

A Hefty Piece of Furniture

While I keep referring to this chair as a gaming chair, it doubles perfectly well as an office chair as well, given you don’t mind the bright colors. In fact, from behind, the red parts of the chair are merely accents. That’s one aspect of gaming chairs I’ve never been able to get into. The designs are full of bright colors, logos, and they just scream “extreme gamer!” Is it too much to ask for the same comfort and solid build without feeling like I need to take up streaming Fortnite daily? If these gaming chair companies could make something with a few more modern design sensibilities, they could vastly open up their potential market from the gamer bros and Twitch streamers to a more moderate crowd just looking for a comfortable chair to sit in.

Splashes of red not fitting into my home decor aside, I love this chair and I can’t stop using it. It sits squarely in the middle of my living room, giving me a seat closer to my TV. I find it even more comfortable than vegging out on the couch, and after using it regularly for a little more than a week, I’m not beset with the same back aches that my couch often gave me. Whether I’m gaming or writing up this review, the Ewin Champion Series gaming chair is my seat of choice. Yes, that includes in front of the TV in my living room.

Without having had other PC gaming chairs, I can’t make a fair comparison to other brands, but after working in an office for a decade of my life, I can safely say it’s far more comfortable than any office chair I had during that time. You might be able to find a cheaper office chair at Walmart, Ikea, or any number of other furniture stores, but they’d be hard pressed to offer the same level of comfort that this chair does. Those other seats might look a lot more like the picturesque version of an office chair, but I’m at a point in my life where comfort overtakes style. That’s why there’s a sizable red and black chair sitting in the middle of my living room.

If you’re looking for a comfortable piece of office furniture at a relatively affordable price (for gaming chairs), the Ewin Champion Series gaming chair is a great choice. It’s a solid chair that feels built to last and provides more comfort and stability that any other office chair I’ve ever used. If you don’t mind the colored racing stripes look, Ewin Racing gaming chairs are well worth the price to maintain the back health of those constantly sitting in front of a screen.

The chair reviewed is an Ewin Racing Champion Series in red. You can browse the full selection of Ewin Racing gaming chairs over on their website.

-WIN Hero Series Gaming Chair Review

Intro

It seems like not to long ago the first gaming chairs came out, I was so disinterested in them.  Why would you charge so much for a chair, it can’t be that comfortable,… can it? Last year I came to find I was so wrong and these things are incredibly comfortable, so much more than almost all of their  pc gaming chairs you can find in your local office supplies store.  With that, I introduce you to my review of the E-Win Hero Series HR-BC3D Computer Gaming Chair.

Let’s go over some of the features:

Features

  • 16mm diameter V Durable Steel Frame
    • 1.5mm thick coat to prevent rusting
  • Aluminum Five-Star Base
  • High elasticity and high quality 1.2mm thick PU Leather Surface (Polyurethane)
  • Embroidered Ewin logo on headrest and pillows.
    • Included Pillows
      • Lower Lumbar
      • Neck rest
  • High back with integrated headrest
  • 2D Armrests (Up/Down)
    • PU Surface
  • Seat Height Adjustable
  • Level Operated Back Recliner
  • Tilt lock and Tilt Control Mechanism
    • Tilt Tension control
  • 85° to 155°-degree tilting for back
  • 120MM Class-4 Gas Lift Piston
    • Supporting up to 330lbs/150kg
  • Cold Molding Foam
    • High Density Memory Foam
  • 360° Swivel
  • 3, 5 and 10 Year Warranty (Explained later in the review)

These boxes are always so big, but of course there is a big cushy comfy chair in there after all so it is to be expected.  So let’s check out the unboxing video so we can see what’s inside.

Quite a few things to go through, and I do apologize there was a manual but in the confusion, I had lost it.  Once we were approached for the opportunity for the chair, I picked the one I wanted and they started packaging everything just for me.  Towards the end, when they were about to ship it I had realized I picked the wrong one and contact them to change the chair and that’s where the mix up occurred.  They shipped me the chair I wanted, but kept the other chairs manual inside, it was the manual for the Champion Series, not the Hero Series I had the final selection on.

No worries though, later in this review I show you all how to build it, so you can use that video as a guide.

Here are links to both sets, in case you are curious.  If you are going to purchase one, stay tuned till the end of this review as I have a coupon to save you a bit of cash.

OK, now that you are back from that, let’s jump over to the Piece by Piece section so that we can go over each piece in this kit.

EWinRacing Hero Series Gaming Chair Review

Being an IT professional, a vivid gamer, I spend quite a bit of time sitting down.  Because of that, there’s only one thing that’s more important than the hardware I amass in my office. That is a good quality chair. Which is exactly something that I’ve neglected for as long as I can remember. Let’s be honest, a good chair costs a lot of money. We’re talking $300 or more for a quality chair that doubles up for long gaming sessions or late night coding sessions. A chair that won’t have your rear end and back feeling like crap. Yet for 20+ years, the most I’ve ever paid for anything overly expensive. Yeah, I’m cheap as heck when it comes to chairs. However, with me being 41-years young, my body has been telling me that it’s time to stop being so cheap. As such, I started looking for a chair that would allow me to do what I enjoy. Without breaking my bank account. Or even better, not having my wife potentially killing me. So, after doing some research on numerous gaming chairs out there, I was going nowhere fast. Seriously, looking for a chair nowadays is like looking for a car. Every one of them has this sexy looking, possessing numerous advantages and stuff that others don’t have. Just when you decide on “The One”, you look at the price tag. Suddenly, that one just isn’t the one after a while.

Thankfully for me, it seems that stars started to align. See, being a gaming and technology journalist, you tend to get offered stuff to check out. It just so happens that it was my turn to be offered a chair to review. The kind folks over at Ewin Racing had reached out to me, asking if I wanted to review one of their chairs. After a conversation with one of their representatives (Hello Sally), I decided on the EWin Hero Series Ergonomic Computer Gaming Office Chair, in red and black.  After a few days, the chair was shipped out to me.

I admit that I was never completely sold on the idea of a “Gaming Racing Chair“. I was under the impression that it was a gimmick to promote more sales. With countless online personalities claiming that a gaming chair was the best piece of equipment they ever acquired. Despite seeing them pop-up in more and more places. Despite reading multiple articles claiming that they’re the best thing since, well since sliced bread. Damn it, now I’m hungry. Anyway, I’m not too proud to admit when I’m wrong. I was clearly in the wrong here. I’ll be damned if this both comfortable and good for my back.

So let’s dive into this chair and see what it’s all about. Specs of the EWinRacing Hero Gaming Chair: Chair Type: Gaming/Office Chair Foam Type:High Density Integrated Foaming / Foam Density: 55kg/m3 Frame Construction: Metal Adjustable Armrests: 4D Mechanism Type: Multi-functional Tilt Gas Lift Class: 4 Adjustable Back Angle: 85-155 Degree  Adjustable Lumbar Cushion: Yes Adjustable Headrest: Yes Base Type: 5-star Wide Aluminum Base Caster Size & Material: 2″ Caster/PU

Upon opening the box, which wasn’t damaged (thanks, UPS), I took each of the parts out of the box and reviewed them. Surprisingly, there weren’t as many parts as I expected there to be. Included was the seat and pillows, base, wheels, and various other accessories. The included instructions were clear and precise, which was a blessing. It took my wife and myself thirty minutes to put the chair together and we never once had a problem reading the instructions.

They even included two Allen keys to assemble the chair. You don’t even need to use your own tools, as they included everything for you. I’m still not sure why a pair of gloves were added, or why they were called “PU Gloves”. At least they allowed my daughter to crack a joke about them being PU Gloves (they stink). Ah, children.

All the parts included in the box.

 

Decked out in black and red, this chair does remind me of a racing seat. The armrests adjust to three different levels. The seat also raises and lowers, thanks to the height adjustment. To the rear of the chair is reinforced high backing, great for taller people. Included are two cushions (headrest and lumbar) that attached by two straps, that can also be placed as needed for maximum comfort. Rounding out the rest of the features is the pull recline lever that moves the chair between 85 – 155 degrees. Great for watching TV, playing games, or just relaxing. Speaking of being comfortable, a good measure for a gaming chair is how long can you sit in it. Since I spend a lot of time in my office, being comfortable is super important. Prior to this review, I’d clocked in 200 hours in this chair so far and not once have I felt uncomfortable in it. That’s extremely positive for me.

The build quality is exceptional as well. Made out of hard plastic and metal, the chair is very sturdy.  The frame of the chair is made out of steel, while the seat is covered in high-density memory foam. The base of the chair is also high quality and made out of aluminum This particular model can support up to 330lbs. Definitely some quality stuff here.

All in all, the chair has been great to me.

By now, you’re probably thinking to yourself “is it as good as you make it out to be”? Well, it is almost perfect, however, there are several things that I wasn’t a fan of. Not to knock the chair, but more like constructive feedback.

The first has to do with the seat of the chair. Along the sides, toward the front, it has a slight incline that tends to restricts your freedom. It pushes my thighs together, with little wiggle room. I can sit comfortably, but I can’t spread my legs out. Not unless I sit a bit closer on the edge of the seat, which could result in me tipping over. Those with smaller thighs won’t likely have the same, so your experience may vary. For me, it’s nuisance but it’s not a detractor. The chair sits up a bit higher than I liked, but not too much of a big deal.

Outside of that, the chair is a great value for the price. Currently, this chair is priced at $379, but at the moment EWinRacing is running a promotion for Chinese New Year. For now, the chair comes with a 20% discount, dropping the price of the chair to $359. Once the promotion is over, the chair goes back up. Fortunately for our readers, we have a 15% discount off all Ewin chairs by using the code “TOH15” at checkout. We won’t get any kickback if you purchase a chair. Just a little something to help our readers out, nothing more. Enjoy!

EWinRacing Hero Series Gaming Chair My very first gaming chair and it’s a winner. Not overly expensive, while being durable, sturdy and looks cool as well. Definitely comfortable for those who are at their or TVs for long periods of time. There’s not really much I can say other than this chair has put my other chairs to shame.  Sadly, the chair is a bit too good and now I have to fight my family over it. So I guess that means I’m buying another one.

Overall 4.5 /5
