Review: EWin Racing Flash Series XL gaming chair

People who stream video games is increasing each and every day, which means gaming chair companies such as DXRacer, OPSeat, Vertagear and others are making a killing trying to keep up with demand. I’ve had the pleasure of reviewing chairs from each of the companies listed above, and today I’m taking an in-depth look at another gaming chair company called EWin Gaming Chair as they have sent me their EWin Racing Flash Series XL gaming chair over to me to play around with.

First Impressions

My first impression of this was the larger than life sized box that appeared on my front door step. Following this came the weight of the package, which prompts a small safety warning to lift with your knees not your back. There is an old saying that weight usually goes hand and hand with the quality of product, which I am hoping to be true about the EWin Racing gaming chair. EWin Racing took the high ground with their packaging, offering a cardboard box that was actually meant to contain the chair as well as bumps and bruises it may encounter during shipping.

Once I started pulling various chair pieces out of the box I realized that EWin Racing had sent me a really HUGE gaming chair. In fact, their Flash XL Series seems to be the biggest chair they sell. At first I thought it was going to be a bit too big for me, even though I am a bigger guy, it just looked way too big. Only a bit of time in testing it and sitting in it would really tell if it was too big or not.

The chair of my choice that they sent over to me was pink and black. Yes I know, you’re asking why did I choose pink and black? Simple answer is that I have a red and black gaming chair, a blue and black gaming chair, a white and black gaming chair and a yellow and black gaming chair. I don’t really care for green or orange too much so I figured, why not, let’s do something different and unexpected. So not upset with my decision either as the chair is actually really nice looking.

Chair Assembly

Assembly of the chair takes about 20 minutes, if that, and inside the box comes all of the tools you need, which is basically just a set of Allen keys. Like the other chairs I’ve put together, EWin Racing makes it super simple to assemble these chairs in a matter of minutes.

For me I always put the casters on the base first. Simply because it’s the quickest thing to get done. All it takes is snapping each of the five casters into the five holes on the bottom of the base itself. Takes about 30 seconds total and there are no tools needed for this part.

The second part I usually tend to assemble is the height adjustment bracket which goes on the bottom of the seat itself. Make sure you look at the bracket as one end of it will say Front in big letters, and that side needs to face towards the front of the seat so that you can operate it properly.

There are 4 washers and 4 lock washers that go on each of the 4 bolts. Then simply line up the holes in the bracket to those in the bottom of the chair and screw all four bolts into the chair as tightly as possible using the included Allen key.

Once that is done, then the most difficult part of the entire process is ready to be done. That’s assembling the back of the chair to the base of the chair. Simply slide the back of the chair between the two brackets on each side of the seat of the chair and again fasten it with the 4 bolts, washers and lock washers that are included. Total time for this can take about 5 – 10 minutes as getting these holes lined up can be the tricky part, at least for me.

At this point the chair is ready for you to sit in and start using. However, there are two pillow type cushions that are optional for you to install and use. One is the head rest pillow and it simply slides over the top of the chair itself. The second is a back support pillow that sits right where the seat and the back of the chair meet. It comes with two long straps that buckle together in the middle. Simply run the straps through on of the holes near the top of the chair, down the back and through the slot where the seat and back of the chair are. Buckle them together and you’re good to go.

Using The Chair

According to EWin Racing, the gaming chair has a reclining spec of 85 – 155 degrees, however I was able to lean the chair almost a complete 180, which was somewhat stable but not recommended at all in my opinion. So like they say, don’t attempt at this home or it won’t end up pretty.

As I stated early on above, this chair looked amazingly big when I was pulling it all out of the box in the various pieces before assembly. Once assembled, the chair was still very large in size and again it almost looked as if it were going to be a bit too large for me personally.

However, once assembled and put to use for a couple of hours or so, I realized that while the Flash XL Series is a bit larger in size compared to my other gaming style chairs from OPSeat, DXRacer and Vertagear, it’s actually very comfortable and quite nice to have the chair a bit larger.

There are some really good selling points to the EWin Racing Flash XL Series gaming chair that beat all of the others. First is the armrests and I touched on this in my OPSeat review. For me, while I like the moving armrests where they go up/down, left/right and front to back, on the DXRacer they were very annoying. The Vertagear didn’t do all of that with the armrests so there was no comparison. The OPSeat chair was much better than the DXRacer was about this, but the EWin Racing chair blows them all away.

The Flash XL Series chair does all three movements, up/down, left/right and front/back but it also does side to side. Unlike with the OPSeat and the DXRacer, all but the left/right require you to press/hold a button. That way when you lock the armrest into place it stays there. This was the issue especially with the DXRacer as it is super simple to swivel the armrests left and right and it was very annoying. The EWin Racing makes having these options a complete pleasure and not an annoyance in any way.

Throw in the fact that you can slide the EWin Racing armrests left and right is a neat little feature and added bonus as well. The armrests in general are pretty well padded and comfortable especially for someone like myself who tens to lean on one armrest(the left) more than anything. It’s a plastic/rubber type armrest that is much better than the DXRacer and Vertagear and again is just one more reason why I prefer it over the others.

Sitting in the chair is an absolute pleasure as well. The one thing I absolutely hated about the Vertagear chair was how hard the seat cushion was. So bad that I had to buy a cushioned pillow from Amazon to be able to use the Vertagear for more than an hour or so. The EWin Racing chair is very well cushioned and very comfortable and without a doubt the best of the best so far.

Final Thoughts

For me, the EWin Racing gaming chair is my all time favorite of the four different brands I’ve had to date and I honestly feel it’s going to be quite a long time before anything makes me feel or think differently.

As is the case with most of these types of chairs, it’s a bit on the pricey side of things, as the Flash XL Series will run you $429, but there are different styles that you can get for around $249 – $279. This of course is the biggest chair they offer which is why it’s a bit more expensive.

Totally worth every penny as I spend a ton of hours each day in my chair, both doing email work for my job and playing my favorite video games. I find at the end of the day my back or legs or anything else don’t hurt and I can do it all again the next day.

Ewin Racing Gaming Chair Review

If you’re looking for a new chair for your office or gaming setup and don’t want to spend a TON of money on a chair, the Ewin Racing team has you covered with their Champion Series gaming chair. Now some gaming chairs with very similar design, quality, and features can costs hundreds, sometimes closer to a thousand dollars but this specific gaming chair is pretty affordable, coming in at only $279 and if you use the promo code CLETECH, you can get an additional 15% off your purchase!

Assembly

Putting this chair together was super easy. It comes in a giant box with the back, bottom, and rolling legs as your only pieces that you have to deal with. I am not the handiest person in the world so it probably took me a little longer than most people but I was able to get this guy fully setup in under 30 minutes.

There are a couple of different Allen keys included as well as the necessary screws to complete the installation. Do keep in mind that this chair is a bit heavy and it might be a little easier to have someone help hold the bottom and the back while you screw in the screws. Either way, I was able to accomplish the assembly by myself.

Features

You might be wondering, “What possible features could a chair have?”. Well, the Ewin gaming chair surprised me a bit for it’s price point with tons of adjustable settings and angles for this chair to rest in making sure that you are at any desired height or angle. For starters, you can adjust the height of the chair up (or down) approximately 4 inches, which would leave you roughly 20 inches off the ground. This allows for maximum comfort no matter how tall the person sitting in the chair may be.

The other lever on the right hand side can adjust your tilt, which can tilt you back anywhere from 85 to 155 degrees which is crazy for me because I have never had a chair that can lean that far back. It’s definitely something that is nice if you wanted to lean back for a little bit and watch a finished project or even close your eyes and think about your tasks ahead. I will say, it does take some getting used to but its definitely a nice little feature to have. There is a tilt lock mechanism that will ensure you that you’re not going to fall over and I highly recommend taking advantage of that.

Another adjustable feature comes within the arm rests. The arm rests can adjust in 4 different directions (front, back, left, and right) and can be adjust vertically as well. It’s super convenient.

Finally, my favorite little “feature” to this chair are the included neck and lumbar support pillows. These pillows are easily adjustable via the straps and can be set at whatever height you desire. This is perfect for me because I love that extra little support in my lower back and neck are while long days typing away at my desk. It definitely helped reduce lower back pain, at least in my case.

Overall Experience & Final Thoughts

I have had this chair for a couple of months now, and overall, I really like this chair. There are a couple of very minor things that bug me about it but it most likely is unique to my situation at the office and could be a different experience for most people.

I have two desks that I rotate between and only one chair at the moment and so wheeling this go around on carpet is really hard. It doesn’t roll quite well but most chairs usually have a hard time on carpet. Also, I tend to grab the chair by the arm rest before sitting down and the arm rests tend to shift either left or right a little too easily at times and it kind of bugs me.

These are very petty annoyances and thats a good thing because overall, I can’t find any major flaws. It’s super comfortable, I love the look of the blue and black racing style chair and it’s definitely worth picking up for only $279. As i mentioned earlier, if you use promo code CLETECH at checkout, you can take off an additional 15%. Head over to http://www.ewinracing.com/ or https://www.ewinracing.eu/ to purchase one today!

I also included this chair in a recent video on the channel which you can check out here.

The EWin Champion Series Ergonomic Computer Gaming Office Chair with Pillows – CPB might just be it. I personally tested it, and I must admit that I almost wanted to sleep in it too.

The EWin Champion Series Ergonomic Computer Gaming Office Chair with Pillows – CPB is not a small piece of furniture, that’s for sure. I am quite small myself, so I almost was able to hide from the world when sitting in this chair. Not everyone is as small as I am, but even normal size people will sit incredibly comfortable in this chair. It has the perfect shape so it will almost embrace you. Its rounded back will ensure a comfortable position which you can maintain for hours without any problems. The chair is made from high- quality materials so it can be your favourite piece of furniture for a really long time. It has a durable steel frame on top of which you will find a nice thick layer of high-density memory foam.

The pillows are there to ensure a right posture for your back. They make the chair very comfortable, so you can forget about the backaches you previously had after a day of work or a longer session of gaming. In order to make the experience even better, everything on the EWin Champion Series Ergonomic Computer Gaming Office Chair with Pillows – CPB is adjustable. Users can adjust the height of the chair, pull it back, and they can even adjust the armrests’ position by sliding them, rotating them, and raising them. This way, everyone can create the perfect chair for their body. Making all these adjustments is really easy.

The EWin Champion Series Ergonomic Computer Gaming Office Chair with Pillows – CPB is covered with PU. This makes it feel comfortable and also keeps its price at a reasonable level.

EWin Racing Champion Series Gaming Chair Review

ewin champion cpaa

As i type these lines the market is literally filled with countless gaming chair models promising not only increased comfort and back/neck support but also more “aggressive” looks compared to your old desk/office chair. For good or bad there are three types of companies right now in the market that offer gaming chairs, OEM manufacturers who make chairs for other brands (according to their specs and design), OEM manufacturers that make chairs both for other brands but also for their very own and premium gaming chair manufacturers who build and sell their own models. There’s some debate as to which company has the best models available in the market today but the reality of the matter is that there are so many variables that there’s simply no straight up answer to that. EWin Racing started off as an OEM manufacturer making chairs for other brands but they recently started selling their very own models and after the surprisingly good Flash XL Gaming Chair aimed at large people today we’re taking a look at the more “mainstream” Champion model.
EWinRacing Chair was newly founded in 2016 after being a leader OEM office chair manufacturer. With the development in design and research, we strive for a professionalization in gaming chair field. Even more in order to bring you a healthier and relaxing environment we will continuously pursue humanism in design and manufacturing ergonomic gaming chairs. What’s more our strict quality inspection process and standard ensures you a better chair for better life. Visit https://www.ewinracing.com/ for more information on our products.
The Champion Gaming Chair may just be a more “common” model compared to the larger and more padded Flash XL model but that doesn’t mean it has much to be jealous of it in terms of features and specifications. Just like the Flash XL the Champion CPA model is dressed in synthetic PU leather and features a reinforced steel frame (15mm in thickness), class-4 gaslift (150Kg total weight support with the upper chair), 4 directional adjustable armrests (height/position/orientation), removable head and lumbar pillows, backrest adjustment (up to 155 degrees) and the typical tilt/rocking (up to 12 degrees) and height adjustment function (via a butterfly height adjustment mechanism) we find with most desk chairs. Since the Champion Gaming Chair however is not designed for larger people like the Flash XL it comes with a slightly reduced foam density of up to 55Kg/M3 and smaller 50mm nylon caster wheels.

ewin champion cpa 1t

The Champion Gaming Chair gets shipped inside a regular cardboard box that just has the manufacturer name on its sides.

 

 

EWin Racing has used several pieces of cardboard, foam and bubble wrap to secure the entire bundle.

 

 

Inside the box you will find the 5-star base, backrest with both support pillows mounted, seat with both 4D armrests attached, butterfly mechanism, class-4 gaslift with its plastic cover, side plastic covers, 3 plastic taps, 5 caster wheels, two Allen keys, pair of fabric gloves, 3 Allen screws and the mounting instructions.

ewin champion cpa 8t

You may want to follow the instructions down to the letter and start from the seat but we always start by mounting the wheels onto the base as seen above.

 

 

50mm wheels are just too small for my taste but at the same time i find that they don’t seem to hit on things as much.

 

 

After mounting the wheels we mount the class-4 gaslift with its plastic cover on the 5-star base.

 

 


Much like the Flash XL the seat of the Champion Series has a total of three green elastic bands for increased support.

 

 

Once again each 4D armrest is attached to the seat with no less than 4 Allen screws.

 

 

Mounting the butterfly mechanism onto the base requires a total of 4 Allen screws as seen above.

 

 


Mounting the backrest onto the seat requires using two Allen screws on each side (a small opening is placed between the two Allen screws).

 

 


After that you will need to place the plastic covers and the screw taps again as seen above.

 

 

With the upper body of the Champion Gaming Chair complete all that’s left is to place it onto the class-4 gas lift.

ewin champion cpa 20t

The Champion Series Gaming Chair may not be as padded as the Flash XL (quite visible) but it looks just as good.

 

 


The company logo is placed on the head of the chair and both support pillows.

 

 

The PU leather used is almost identical to that of the Flash XL and again although it may not be of the same quality as the one used in the X-Comfort by Thermaltake or with the one of the Vernazza WOT by Arozzi still it’s very good.

 

 


The armrests can be height adjusted from 29cm all the way up to 36.5cm.

 

 

Just like all 4D armrests the top can move forward, backwards, left, right and even diagonally to suit your style.

 

 

This is what the rear of the Champion Series looks like (once again EWin Racing has used a neck support pillow that secures with a clip).

 

 

Although the backrest doesn’t fall all the way (180 degrees) still it does fall up to 155 degrees and thus allows the user to get some rest if needed.

score

Many of you recommended (including some manufacturers) that we place a chart pointing to the pros and cons of each gaming chair we test. Now of course since there’s really no way for us to “benchmark” gaming chairs we decided to rate them based on their size, comfort and quality. Size and comfort usually go hand to hand (the larger the chair the more comfortable it usually is – also depends on the amount of padding) while in terms of quality having tested 16 models currently we think we have a good idea about that as well. Of course these scores are based on our personal opinions regarding each chair so do take them with a grain of salt.

ewin champion cpab

The Flash XL Series Gaming Chair by EWin Gaming may not be the best in the market but it’s somewhat unique not only because it feature superior foam padding/density compared to many other gaming chairs but also because its size which makes it ideal for larger people even up to 2 meters tall. The Champion Series on the other hand lacks that “something” needed to make it stand out from the rest of the crowd. In terms of build quality it does quite good and the same can be said for its comfort levels. Still the small 50mm wheels don’t do it justice and as we always do point out the butterfly height/tilt/rocking mechanism is not nearly as robust as the Z-support one we find with other models so I do hope EWin Racing starts using it as well. The large surprise came from the very large removable lumbar support pillow and the 4D armrests since at that price range we usually see small pillows and only height adjustable hand rests or 3D adjustable ones so kudos to EWin Racing for that.
Price is what makes and also what breaks some products and in this specific segment EWin Racing does extremely well since you can currently grab a Champion Series Gaming Chair for just USD237 directly from their online store (by using our NikK voucher) a price tag which can’t be easily beat by other manufacturers. Had EWin Racing asked for over USD300 for the Champion Series we would had probably not recommend it to our readers since we do feel that there are models out there that offer more both in terms of quality and features. However at such a price it would be too much not to recommend it to gamers and consumers in general looking for a great bargain.

 

PROS


– Good Build Quality (PU Faux Leather / Steel Frame)
– Available PU Leather Designs & Color Combinations
– Comfortable
– Features (Adjustable Backrest / 4D Adjustable Armrests)
– Removable Neck and Lumbar Pillows
– Price
CONS


– Small Wheels
– Butterfly Mechanism (Not As Robust As The Z-Support Model)

Ewin Racing Champion Gaming Chair

Over the last decade or so we’ve seen a large influx of gaming chairs. I can’t recall which company introduced the concept but in recent years a lot of newcomers entered the market as entrepreneurs realized there’s a big market for gaming chairs.

Computer gaming is a hot growth market and a lot of gamers want to pay premium prices for products that provide a custom touch to their gaming space. A week ago, research firm GfK released a report that revealed desktop gaming PCs, as well as PC gaming accessory sales, are growing at impressive mid-double digit rates.

These days nobody wants a beige box under or on his/her desk, so computer enthusiasts and gamers spend a lot of money on fancy cases and case modding products. Gaming chairs are a product that fits well with this audience, every desktop PC gamer needs a chair so the target market for companies that can convince gamers to spend a bit more on a chair is massive.

The subject of this review is the Champion gaming chair from Ewin Racing. It’s one of the lesser known gaming chair brands but the company behind Ewin Racing is not a newcomer in the chair market. The firm’s website explains the Ewin Racing was founded in 2016 and that the company has a long history as a manufacturer of car seats and OEM office chairs.

The exact EwinRacing gaming chair model I’m testing today is the Champion CP-BC3A, a black chair with some blue highlights. Ewin Racing offers the Champion series in three variants in Europe; CPA, CPB and CPC. All three versions are almost identical, the only difference is the design of the fabric of the seat and the backrest. Besides the three different designs, you can also choose between a couple of color options including black/white, black/red, and black/blue. The company’s US webshop, on the other hand, offers four different seat designs as well as a lot more color combinations.

At the moment of this review, Ewin Racing is selling the chair for 259EUR ($279) but with the coupon code “DVH” you can get an extra 15% off!

Ewin Racing Box
Ewin Racing’s Champion is the largest review product ever in the DV Hardware office. It ships in a very large cardboard box that weighs over 20kg. The tiles in the photo above measure 600mm x 600mm so that gives you some perspective about how large the box is. When you take it inside you have to lug around a heavy weight that is hard to handle due to the bulky size of the box. I think some cut-out handles would help to make handling the box less of a nuisance. It’s thick cardboard and everything inside is well-packed to prevent shipping damage.

As with most office chairs, you need to assemble the product yourself. It’s a pretty easy process and you can probably do it in 10-15 minutes tops. In the past, I would have shot a lot of photos of the unboxing and assembly process but to celebrate the 15th anniversary of DV Hardware we’re introducing video reviews. Check out our clip below, the first part includes the unboxing and the chair’s assembly.

Ewin Racing Champion chair frontal
The chair weighs about 20.4kg and has a high back rest. My initial impression of the Champion chair is very good, its heavy weight indicates Ewin Racing didn’t skimp on materials and when you take your first seat you’ll notice this chair uses very firm, high-density foam. I’ve worn out several office chairs in my life but none of them felt as qualitative as the Champion. Most of the mass-market office chairs that cost just half (or perhaps even a quarter) as much as the Champion have a much lower build quality. When you deconstruct a typical office chair you’ll typically see they consist of flakeboard or plywood panels with a couple of layers of low-density foam pads.

gaming chair like the Champion is very different, this chair features a 16mm steel tube frame with a thickness of 1.5mm and has molded memory foam with a density of 55kg/m³.

Ewin Racing Champion chair foam and frame
The Ewin Racing gaming chairs have a race chair like look and feel. The top of the chair as well as the two removable cushions feature Ewin branding. One gripe I have about the cushions is that the head cushion is very small. It provides some support for the back of your neck but it’s too small to be really useful.

Ewin Racing Champion chair cushions
The lumbar pillow is a lot larger and uses very firm foam. The position of the cushion is adjustable or you can also remove it entirely.

Ewin Racing Champion chair cushions
Gaming chairs like the Champion offer a high degree of customization. Typical office chairs let you adjust the chair height and the better variants let you tilt backward. The Champion has all of those features and more. It has a recline lever that lets you adjust the backrest’s angle from 88 to 155 degrees. When you need a moment to relax, or when you want to watch the latest Game of Thrones, you can just pull the lever and relax. Furthermore, the Champion also includes 4D adjustable armrests. More about those later.

The next photo shows the quality finish of the back. It also shows the release buckles of the two pillows.

Ewin Racing Champion chair back
The chair is cladded with 1.2mm PU leather, this is a cheaper fabric than real leather and it has a nice uniform looking finish. There are some gaming chairs from other vendors that use real leather but those are a lot more expensive. The fabric is one of the more vulnerable parts of a chair, as soon as there’s a big rip it’s embarrassing to continue to use it even if the rest of the chair is still perfectly OK. As I’ve only been using this chair for three weeks I can’t comment on the long-term durability, at the moment it still looks as good as new.

Ewin Racing Champion chair PU leather
The chair is supported by a sturdy five-star aluminium base.

Ewin Racing Champion base
The base has five heavy-duty 2″ caster wheels made from polyurethane, they roll very smoothly.

Ewin Racing Champion chair wheels
The next photo shows the two levers that are found on the right side of the chair. The big one lets you adjust the height of the seat while the smaller lever lets you operate the back recliner. The tilt tension can be adjusted via a big knob at the bottom of the seat and the big lever also lets you lock the chair in the neutral position. One small gripe I have about the chair’s height adjustment is that it doesn’t go low enough. My height is 175cm and I feel the minimum height will probably be a bit too high for people that are a lot smaller than me.

Ewin Racing Champion chair levers
The 4D adjustable armrests are the key selling point of the Champion series versus Ewin Racing’s cheaper Calling series. One thing that surprised me is that they’re made from high-elasticity PU. On photos it looks like the top of the armrest is made of hard plastic but it’s actually a firm yet soft to touch surface.
Cheaper chairs usually fix the armrests to the seat and the backrest. This gaming chair on the other hand mounts the armrests to the bottom of the seat via an 8mm thick steel plate. The armrests are adjustable in four dimensions, on the photo below you can see the lever that’s used to adjust the height of the arm rests.

Ewin Racing Champion chair 4D armrests
You can rotate the armrests one step clockwise and one step counterclockwise. This is the feature I found the least useful about this chair, I never feel the need to rotate the armrests and I think this feature makes the armrests feel less qualitative as they don’t fully lock into place. The armrests always rock a bit back and forth when you grab them.

Ewin Racing Champion chair 4D armrests
The final two features of the armrests involve sliding. You can move them forward and you can also move them closer together. Sliding to the front and back is done by pushing and holding the small circular knob. The rectangle knob works in a similar way, you press and hold it to slightly adjust the horizontal position of the armrests.

Ewin Racing Champion chair 4D armrests
Conclusion
After using the Ewin Racing Champion gaming chair for a couple of weeks I’m very impressed. This product is a nice step up in quality versus traditional office chairs and offers a wide range of seat and armrest adjustments. Its overall build quality is good and the chair offers high-density memory foam that remains quite firm and comfortable. Whether you’re planning to use it for gaming, office work, or watching movies at night, this chair will not disappoint.

Don’t forget to use the coupon code “DVH” to get an extra 15% off when you order a gaming chair from Ewin Racing. Our coupon code lowers the price of the Champions series to 220EUR ($237) and you also get free shipping. At this price level, I feel the Ewin Racing Champion is a very compelling contender if you’re in the market for a new chair.

Gamerstuhl im Test

 

Wir haben für euch einen neuen Gamerstuhl von EwinRacing für einen Test erhalten. Dabei konnten wir uns die „E-Win Europe Flash Normal Series FLA Ergonomic Office Gaming Chair with Free Cushions“-Version sichern. Der Preis für den EwinRacing Gaming Chair liegt momentan bei 319,- Euro und der Stuhl kann auf der offiziellen EwinRacing Website bestellt werden.

Es gibt aber auch günstigere Modelle auf der Internetseite, die es auch in der EU-Version mit Euro gibt. Leider ist die Website des Herstellers noch unausgereift und viele Links führen zu Fehlern. Der Bestellvorgang lief trotzdem einwandfrei und unsere Lieferung war in weniger als 24 Stunden an unserer Haustür.

Nach kürzester Zeit wartete der riesige Karton also nur noch darauf von uns aufgerissen zu werden. Gesagt getan und somit haben wir uns sofort hingesetzt, den EwinRacing Gaming Chair aufgebaut, damit wir ihn für euch ausprobieren können. Eine Unboxing Galerie haben wir ebenfalls für euch erstellt.

 

Der Aufbau des EwinRacing Gaming Chair erweist sich als besonders einfach und kann problemlos von einer Person durchgeführt werden. Die bebilderte Anleitung ist auf Englisch beschrieben und die Schrauben sind bereits vormontiert. Ihr müsst diese dann nur mit einem der zwei beiliegenden Inbusschlüsseln lösen, das Anbauteil anhalten und wieder festziehen.

Von der Rückenlehne bis hin zum Lift ist alles selbsterklärend und kein großer Aufwand. Innerhalb von wenigen Minuten habt ihr den Stuhl aufgebaut und genießt erst einmal mit ein paar Metern Abstand das schicke Design. Dieses gibt es in mehreren Versionen und ihr solltet auf jeden Fall einmal auf der offiziellen EwinRacing Gaming Chair Website vorbeischauen.

Mit bis zu 250kg belastbar

Lange werdet ihr den schicken Anblick aus der Ferne nicht aushalten und euch direkt auf den EwinRacing Gaming Chair setzen. Die Belastbarkeit liegt bei maximalen 250kg, wobei der Lift bis maximal 150kg funktioniert. Die Sitzfläche hat eine Breite von circa 46cm, der untere Rückenbereich liegt bei 38cm und der Schulterbereich bei 56cm. Diese Werte sind absolute Extraklasse und damit ihr immer sicheren Halt habt, wurde der fünfarmige Unterbau mit verstärkten Rollen umgesetzt.

Die hohe Qualität ist auf den ersten Blick zu erkennen und vor allem die tolle Verarbeitung hat uns begeistert. Jede Naht und jedes Element wurden perfekt umgesetzt. Das ergonomische Design ist nicht nur schick, sondern auch äußerst komfortabel. Die eingesetzten Schaumstoffe sind sehr angenehm und für die richtige Körperhaltung unterstützen euch das Kopfstützenkissen und das Lendenkissen.

Im folgenden Herstellervideo könnt ihr euch einen Vergleich zu anderen Produkten anschauen. Dabei wird ein Originallmodell zerschnitten und ihr könnt sehen, wie gut die Qualität auch im Innenleben ist: video.

 

Die beiden mitgelieferten Kissen sind an Gurten befestigt, damit ihr deren Position jederzeit verändern könnt. Löst ihr die Schnallen, könnt ihr die Kissen ganz einfach abnehmen. Das Kopfstützkissen und das Lendenkissen sind wie der ganze Stuhl mit einem Kunstleder überzogen. Das Lendenkissen selbst könnt ihr auf der Rückseite mit einem Reißverschluss öffnen und den Schaumstoff entnehmen, falls ihr das Gefühl habt, das es zu dick geraten ist.

Eine weitere Besonderheit sind die beiden PU-Armlehnen, die in vier Richtungen verschoben werden können. Leider sind diese aber aus Kunststoff und ohne Polsterung. In dieser Preisklasse hätten wir uns eine Kunstlederpolsterung gewünscht. Manch einer mag dieses Kunstleder an den Armlehnen aber gar nicht, da man leicht „festklebt“, wenn man mit der Haut länger Kontakt hat und deswegen heften wir diese Anmerkung unter „Geschmackssache“ ab. Die Armlehnen sind insgesamt gut gelungen und die Anpassungsmöglichkeiten sind wirklich genial. Somit ist eine Einstellung für jede Körpergröße möglich.

Unser EwinRacing Gaming Chair verfügt dazu über eine circa 87cm hohe Rückenlehne zum Schutz der Hals- und Wirbelsäule. Die Kunststoffelemente an den Seiten passen sich dabei nahtlos an das Design an und runden das gute Gesamtbild gekonnt ab.

Der Lift funktioniert wie bei allen anderen Büro- und Gamerstühlen auch. Ihr stellt euch hin, zieht den Lifthebel und der Stuhl fährt hoch. Setzt ihr euch auf den Stuhl und zieht den Hebel, fährt der Lift den Stuhl herunter. Die Rückenlehne kann auf der rechten Seite in Sitzposition angepasst werden. Zieht einfach den Hebel, lehnt euch zurück und lasst den Hebel wieder los. Positionen von 85° bis 155° sind möglich.
Ebenfalls ist es möglich den Stuhl zu schwenken. Hierbei könnt ihr den Schwenkgrad selbst einstellen. Dafür müsst ihr an der Unterseite den Schwenkmechanismus drehen und könnt so die Stärke verändern.

Fazit

Der „E-Win Europe Flash Normal Series FLA Ergonomic Office Gaming Chair with Free Cushions“-Gamerstuhl überzeugt mit einer sehr guten Verarbeitung und einer anschmiegsamen Ergonomie. Die Sitzposition kann perfekt angepasst werden, wobei vor allem die Armlehnen mit ihren vier Richtungspositionen lobend erwähnt werden müssen. Leider sind diese aber für unseren Geschmack nur aus reinem Kunststoff und hätten in dieser Preisklasse auch gern gepolstert und mit einem Kunstlederüberzug ausgestattet sein können. Manch einer mag dieses Kunstlederzeug aber so gar nicht an den freien Unterarmen und deswegen sehen wir es nicht direkt als Kritikpunkt an, sondern eher als Hinweis. Darüber hinaus setzen andere Hersteller die einen ähnlichen oder deutlich höheren Preis für ihren Gaming Chair verlangen auf das gleiche Material bei den Armlehnen.

Das Modell hält ein Maximalgewicht von bis zu 250kg aus, was wirklich Extraklasse ist. Genauso Extraklasse ist die Verarbeitung und das Design. Wer einen Gamerstuhl sucht, der sollte unbedingt EwinRacing auf der Liste haben, denn uns (und alle unsere Besucher) konnte der Stuhl mit seinen Anpassungsmöglichkeiten sofort überzeugen. Wer auf der Suche nach einem Gamerstuhl ist, die PU-Armlehnen verschmerzen kann bzw. diese sogar bevorzugt, der bekommt hier von uns eine klare Kaufempfehlung!

Aktion: Mit freundlicher Unterstützung des Herstellers können wir euch nun über eine weitere Aktion informieren, wobei alle Xboxdynasty Leser 15 % Rabatt erhaltet. Dabei müsst ihr beim beim Bestellvorgang den Code „XBOX“ eingeben.

Falls ihr euch einen EwinRacing Gaming Stuhl bestellt habt, lasst es uns in den Kommentaren wissen und schickt uns gerne Bilder von eurem Modell.

E-Win Champion Series CPA Ergonomic Office Gaming Chair

If you are in the market for a gaming chair, then you are in the right place. The E-Win Europe Champion Series CPA Ergonomic Office Gaming Chair is the best choice currently on the market. This gaming chair sets itself apart from the competition in many ways. By the end of this review, you will not believe how you survived without this chair for so long.

Comfortable

As a gamer, you will find yourself sitting behind the screen for multiple hours at a time. So, why not make yourself comfortable. This is the main reason that people see themselves buying a gaming chair. The EwinRacing Gaming Chair takes comfort to a whole new level; the entire chair is coated with a high-density memory foam. After sitting down in this chair for the first time, I found myself melting into it as it formed around my body. Even though this seat was incredibly soft, it was also firm giving the much-needed support that your body needs.

Adjustable

I have been using a gaming chair for a while now, and the thing that most impressed me about E-Win Europe Champion Series CPA Ergonomic Office Gaming Chair was how adjustable it was. It absolutely blew my mind. Most other gaming chairs that I have sat in have the 4D adjustable armrests (up and down, left and right, a swivel motion, and back and forth) just like this one does. However, the E-Win Europe Champion Series CPA Ergonomic Office Gaming Chair sets itself apart by having up to a 155 decline angle. If you are not good with angles, that is almost an entirely flat recline. While testing out this chair, I found it considerably relaxing just to lean the chair back and look up at the ceiling when taking a break or waiting for a match to start.

Structure

The way that the E-Win Europe Champion Series CPA Ergonomic Office Gaming Chair is able to completely recline the way that it does it through the incredible support frame that the chair is molded around. The structure of the E-Win Europe Champion Series CPA Ergonomic Office Gaming Chair is made out of a durable high-grade steel frame. This arrangement is capable of holding a weight of 330lbs in the reclined position which is no easy task. The one downfall of having such a sturdy framework is that it adds to the weight of the E-Win Europe Champion Series CPA Ergonomic Office Gaming Chair making it slightly more substantial than I anticipated. Though, I will admit, other gaming chairs that have not been as durable as this one have only been somewhat lighter in comparison.

Customizable

If you are looking to get rid of your basic black desk chair, then you will be happy to find out that the E-Win Europe Champion Series CPA Ergonomic Office Gaming Chair is available in many different leather combinations. I personally am a fan of how the red and black chair looks, but if you are not, there are many various color combinations that you can piece together. The E-Win Europe Champion Series CPA Ergonomic Office Gaming Chair also gives you the ability to remove both the lumbar cushion as well as the neck cushion if you do not like how they feel. I tested this chair with both the cushions on and off, and though I preferred having them on the chair when they were removed, the chair was still very comfortable.

Price

If you have seen the price of gaming chairs before, then you might be afraid that buying a gaming chair is something that is just out of your price range. This may have prevented you in the past, but the E-Win Europe Champion Series CPA Ergonomic Office Gaming Chair sets itself apart from other gaming chairs yet again with only a $350 price point. Even better than that, the E-Win Europe Champion Series CPA Ergonomic Office Gaming Chair is currently on sale for just $279. This is a significant drop in price compared to other gaming chairs at $400, $500, or even over $1000 for a similar quality chair to that of the E-Win Europe Champion Series CPA Ergonomic Office Gaming Chair.

Cons

There was one thing that I did not like about the E-Win Europe Champion Series CPA Ergonomic Office Gaming Chair that I feel wouldn’t be fair to you if I did not mention. The one issue that I had with this chair involved the wheelbase. The wheels were smaller than I usually like, making it a bit difficult to roll over objects that you may find on the floor such as a cord. This is easy to get around, however, by just keeping your floor clean and making sure any cables or wires are tucked away. This is mainly only an issue for me due to my kids sometimes leaving Legos or other small toys around.

Summary

The E-Win Europe Champion Series CPA Ergonomic Office Gaming Chair is the best gaming chair that you will find within the current market for the price. It not only supplies you with the much-needed comfort that you are looking for, but it is also highly adjustable giving you the ability to find the perfect sitting position for you. The structure of this chair makes it a bit heavier than a standard desk chair, but that added support gives this chair the ability to last you for many years to come. Where the chair was very customizable, the wheel size was something that I found could have been improved. Use the coupon code gamerbolt for 15% off your purchase!

EWIN HERO SERIES GAMING OFFICE CHAIR REVIEW

As a gamer, there’s nothing more important than comfort, especially if you’re a streamer. Streamers are sitting down for long periods at a time, and with a bad chair, that could mean lower back strain and discomfort. So, I can’t stress how important it is to invest in a gaming chair that’s going to keep you comfortable.ewinracing hero gaming chair review

Enter the EWin Hero Series Ergonomic Computer Gaming Chair, a chair that’s built with those long play sessions in mind. It starts with a strong durable steel frame that serves as the chair’s structural groundwork. On that frame, E-Win added a super thick layer of cold molding high-density memory foam that adds the comfort. The final touch is the addition of the PU leather that covers the chair, adding the final layer of style as to not make the chair a visual eyesore. The final result is an impressive-looking gaming chair that’s comfortable as well.

There are three colorways available: red, a cool blue, and lime green.

The chair comes well-packaged, and it’s safely packed in foam and wrapped in plastic to protect it during shipping. If you’re ever put together any office chair, putting together the EWin Hero Series chair shouldn’t be challenging, as it’s the same process. First, snap the wheels into the five-star base. Then, put the hydraulic unit into the base and add the plastic cover over it. Once the hydraulic unit and its cover are in place, you can attach the back of the chair to the chair’s seat (simply remove the four bolts, line up the holes, and screw the four bolts back in). Of course, it uses hex screws (and yes, the hex driver you’ll need is included in the box).

Once the back and seat are together, flip the chair over and attach the control unit by first removing the four bolts then lining up the holes and screwing those bolts back in. Once it’s attached, you simply turn the chair over and put it onto the hydraulic unit. Boom, your chair is together. The process took a total of 15-minutes for us to complete.

As far as the chair’s features, you’ll find a lot of small touches that make this one of the better chairs on the market for its price range. First, it has adjustable armrests, so you can set them to the height best suited for your own personal comfort. All too often, chair manufacturers overlook the fact that not everyone sitting in the chair is the same height, so their arms aren’t necessarily going to be most comfortable with a default one-size-fits-all height. What’s more, the armrests are made out of soft PVC with some padding and not just hard plastic as you’d find in some other chairs.

Secondly, the Hero Series features a reclining back, allowing you sit back and relax if you’re watching a movie or something a little less involved than playing a competitive game. It reclines in the same way a normal car seat would recline, with a side lever that you pull up until you’ve found the angle you’re looking for.

In the comfort area, this chair leaves little if anything to be desired. The padding is soft enough to be comfortable but hard enough to give you support and structure. It’s clear that building an exoskeleton of sorts and adding padding over it is the way to go. Thanks to the added adjustable head and lower back pillows (that you can also remove entirely if you’d prefer, by the way), it’s harder to find an uncomfortable position than it is to find a comfortable one.

My only gripe with this chair is a small one, and it’s that the wheels don’t work as well as they should. They don’t fully spin in every direction as you’d expect, and at times, it feels as though you’re dragging one of the five wheels in a direction it isn’t supposed to go in. It’s not something that’s always occurring, though, and you just have to catch the wheel facing the wrong direction for the way you’re moving for it to be an annoyance.

The EwinRacing gaming chair might feel a bit pricey for some, coming in at $359 at the time of writing this. But, in reality, it’s not much more than a high-end office chair you’d find at, say, Staples or Best Buy, and it’s packed with features. If you’re looking for the perfect cross between comfort and style, the Hero Series Gaming Chair is a great choice.

EWin Champion Series Gaming Chair Review: Sturdy, Comfy, and Sleek (Oh My!)

The Champion gaming chair from EWin boasts a sturdy design with maximized comfort for your marathon gaming sessions.

I’ve never owned a nice office chair. In the many, many years that I’ve spent hunched over my desk, grinding MMO dungeons and carrying teams in MOBA matches, I’ve only ever used sub-par chairs that offer the bare minimum in terms of comfort. And in the last few weeks, my current desk chair has finally started showing signs of its mortality — mostly by swiveling as far left as possible any time I don’t plant my feet firmly on the floor.

Needless to say, getting my hands on an actual gaming chair meant for long-term comfort was long overdue. Enter the Champion Series gaming chair from EWin — an ergonomic office-style chair that’s made with marathon gamers in mind.

EWin’s designs echo the familiar aesthetic of brands like DXRacer, which you’ll see behind nearly every streamer on Twitch. But does it offer the same level of quality? From what I can tell, absolutely. I can’t speak for the other chairs in the EWin line, but the Champion series is a solid chair that’s not too costly, and offers lots of functionality to help you maximize your comfort.

Unboxing and Assembly

The EWin Champion does require some assembly out of the box to get the base, seat, arm rests, and cushions into a single unit. You can pay about $83 to have it done for you, but putting this thing together was so easy that it renders “professional assembly” totally unnecessary. It took me and another person about 10 minutes to get it in working order.

Some of the instructions along the way were a little confusing, though. It seems like they were tailored for a model that was slightly different than the one I had, and some parts didn’t quite go together the way those instructions said they should. Once we got that figured out, though, the rest of the assembly was quick and painless.

Because of how easy it was to put together, I was a little concerned that the chair might not be structurally sound without a ton of intricate mechanisms to hold it together. But so far, it’s held up just fine.

Look and Feel

Overall, this is a pretty sleek chair. The faux leather covering feels nice to the touch and is super easy to keep clean — so you can snack between matches or eat lunch at your desk without worrying about stains or sticky fabric.

Its patterns are a good fit for the racing aesthetic, and the colors are about as vibrant as you’d want them to be. The GameSkinny green accents on my model pop nicely against the solid black body. And though they’re not the main attraction, the armrests are sturdy and nicely textured as well.

Although it’s not the household name of gaming chairs, EWin obviously paid close attention to the quality of its product. Even the stitching is clean, tight, and discreet. You’d have to do some serious damage to this thing before it started showing any signs of wear.

Use and Customization

So it’s easy to assemble and it looks nice. That’s great and all, but does the EWin Champion have the functionality to back up its sleek design? Definitely.

You can adjust this chair in a number of ways to suit your needs, whatever they are. You can adjust the height like a standard office chair, but you can also tweak a number of other structural aspects to maximize the comfort and support you get from this seat.

Its back cushion slides up and down so you can position it wherever you most need lumbar support. This is a huge boon for people who struggle with chronic back pains — especially in situations where the lower back needs far more support than usual. I would have liked to see the same range of motion with the head pillow, but that part still fit my posture nicely, so I can’t complain about it too much.

You can also adjust the reclining angle of the chair so that you’re sitting slightly back, slightly forward, or in whatever position is most comfortable for you. Or you can do what I did, and lean it all the way back to stare at the ceiling between your SMITE games and wonder why the hell the matchmaking gods have condemned you to playing with filthy casuals forever. Either way, making the adjustment is a quick (and very quiet) lever pull away. Your insides might be hardening into pure salt, but at least you’re comfortable.

Of all the customization options, though, I found myself more impressed with the arm rests than anything else. You can move them in just about any direction you desire. Slide them forward or back so they sit where your elbows naturally rest. Move them up or down to suit the height of your desk and keyboard. Push them inward or outward to make a wider or narrower base that your arms can rest on. You can even angle the armrests in or leave them parallel to each other. No matter what configuration will be most comfortable for you, you’ve got the option to do it with EWin’s Champion gaming chair.

Comfort Level: Maximum

With so many options packed into one chair, the real question is this: Is it comfortable? Can it keep your body feeling supported even during long gaming marathons?

After spending a week of 8-hour work days in this chair, I’d have to say that it can.

I’ve got lower back issues so bad that I’ve had multiple surgeries trying to fix the problem. So proper support is paramount — and I’d be the first to notice if something wasn’t up to snuff. But where most office chairs hurt my spine in one way or another, I could spend loads of time in the EWin Champion without feeling any sort of pain.

I knew this chair was doing something right when the uncomfortable popping that usually happens in my lower back after being seated for long periods of time started to dissipate the more I sat in it. It wasn’t curing my back problems, of course, but it offered enough support to significantly help the posture issues that cause the popping in the first place.

If you’re a sloucher, you might experience a fair amount of discomfort at first, as this chair is definitely not one that you can hunch over in. And it took me some time to stop doing so myself — especially during really intense dungeon runs. But the extra support and the lumbar cushion made it much easier to pull myself upright and find comfort in a position that didn’t make me look like Gollum.

The TL;DR here is that EWin’s Champion chair offers long-lasting comfort — once you find the position that’s right for you. And as a bonus, it’s got excellent rolling capabilities to boot! With a wireless headset and relatively smooth floors, I could wheel across the room fast enough to make it back before my death timer was up.

The One and Only Caveat

Personally, I’ve had a great experience with this gaming chair. But I want to note that if you don’t take the time to really play around with it and try every configuration for the armests, lumbar cushions, recline angle, and so on, it’s very easy to have a terrible time with it.

The first few configurations I tried felt great at first, but ended up putting terrible pressure on my hips and somehow making my knees ache. I had to tweak lots of things time and time again until I finally found that sweet spot that let me sit for hours at a time without feeling arthritic.

It’s also worth mentioning that while this is a fairly roomy chair — one that I had enough room to pull my knees up into and cry over lost qualifying games in ranked — it may not be very well suited to heavier-set people. Even for someone hobbit-sized like me, the chair is quite narrow when you take the raised sides of the seats into consideration. So that’s something to be aware of.

Verdict

EWin may not be the name you think of when you think of gaming chairs, but it should definitely be one of them. The Champion model is a fantastically built seat that will offer you hours of comfort in a durable package. It looks nice, feels even better, and is fully customizable to give you the best seating experience possible. If you need something to help you sit tight through hours of gaming — or all the time you spend on that 9-5 work grind — this is definitely one you’ll want to consider.

The EWin Champion is retails for $279 on Amazon. But if you check out the official EWin store page for it, you can use the code “GS” to get 15% off your order. This chair is well worth diving into your pockets for.
