EWin Champion Series Ergonomic Computer Gaming Chair Review

EWin Champion Series Ergonomic Computer Gaming Chair: Introduction

Just about anything in the computer world has a gaming version. Monitors, keyboards, mice, motherboards, cases, and even entire laptops can be dedicated to gaming. And what gamer wouldn’t like that? Manufacturers figured out years ago that gaming versions of their products help sales, so they put extra effort into making their gaming lines as appealing as possible to existing and potential gamers. Of course, gamers want the extra edge, no matter how small it may be. One thing that gamers do (myself included) is spend a lot of time parked in front of their monitors, blasting away enemies or trekking through elaborate maps in RPGs. But you have to be comfortable. You can’t be distracted by a creaky old office chair. So what better way to game than in a gaming chair?

 

EWin Champion Series Ergonomic Computer Gaming Chair: Closer Look

There are four lines of gaming chair styles in the EWin product line up and they are all available in different trim and accent colors. The different series include the Champion, Calling, Hero, and Flash. Today we have the Champion Series in blue. Other color options include red, white, orange, and pink. The chair comes disassembled in a plain cardboard box. The “plain” ends quickly as you get the box open and start going through the components. On top is the base, which is well-protected with individual bubble wrap pouches.

 

As soon as you lift the base out of the box you realize that this all metal – no plastic. The website says it is aluminum, but I was able to get a magnet to stick to it, and aluminum is not magnetic. Regardless, it is robustand solid. Next is the seat back, which is also well-protected in plastic.

   

 

With the plastic bag removed, the rich PU leather and blue accents grab your attention. There are two pillows attached, but they are easily removable by disconnecting the elastic straps on the back. So far, the qualitylooks excellent. That leather sure is soft.

   

 

The next component is the seat base. The soft leather and blue accents continue across the seat cushion. Now we are ready to attach the seat back to the seat base and then the base with the wheels.

    

 

Before assembly begins, it is a good idea to go through the hardware kit and, of course, the instructions. The instructions go over each step and clearly list the components and hardware. The pictures do a fine job of walking you through each step. A few minutes spent with the instructions will shorten the assembly process.

   

 

The assembly process is rather straightforward and in less than 10 minutes you can have a chair ready for some gaming action. While I am presenting this as a gaming chair, it is technically called an Ergonomic Computer Gaming Office Chair. Regardless of what you call it, I am ready for some seat time. But first, let’s look at some of the details.

   

A closer look at the pillows shows that the same care and quality that go into the chair go into the pillows. They are both adjustable and completely removable, if you like. The EWin logo embroidery looks very nice. All of the stitching and seams look great.

   

 

Here is the lever to raise and lower the chair. Height adjustment is simple and similar to any office chair. Sit down, pull the lever, and the seat lowers. Stand up, pull the lever, and the seat raises. The Class-4 gas lift cylinder can handle the lifting job up to 330lbs. Push or pull this lever in or out and you lock or unlock (Free / Lock) the tilt mechanism. Looking at he picture on the right, there is the pull lever to recline the chair. This adjusment ranges between 85 and 155 degrees. I call the 155-degree position “nap mode”.

   

 

The wheels are smooth and quiet when you roll around. On the right is the tilt adjustment. It is spring-loaded and you can adjust the tilt resistance by twisting the knob. The lift lever shown above can be set to Lock or Free which enables or disables the tilt function.

   

The armrests are independently adjustable with four degrees of freedom, which include: raise / lower, forward / back, in / out, and rotation. These are easier to demonstrate in the video below.

   

Ah, yes, here we are fully reclined or in what I call “nap mode.”  Besides the overall comfort, a big thing that I noticed with this chair is how quiet it is. You can move around and shift your weight from side to side or forward and back and there is pretty much no sound. No rattles, no popping – just plain quiet. Even when you roll around it is quiet. This is a big plus for me.

Now it is time for the video review. It is much easier to go over the features and demonstrate the chair functions in a video, so click here to learn more.

EWin Champion Series Ergonomic Computer Gaming Chair Conclusion:

The best way to test a chair is to just sit down and use it, which is just what I did. There is certainly a lot of subjectivity when it comes to rating something like a chair. When I test cases or CPU coolers, I can get some hard numbers from the thermal testing and compare the results to other cases or coolers. But how do you rate a chair? What do you measure? What is soft or comfortable to me may not be to someone else. That is like trying to pick clothes for someone else, but what I can do is simply tell you about my experience.

So, here it goes: I love it! To me, it is very comfortable, very accommodating, and certainly makes my gaming experience and even plain old web browsing more pleasant. Some of my excitement may come from the fact that my old chair was a low-end office chair that I had actually recovered a couple of times to extend its life. So going from that to the EWin Champion chair is like going from a skateboard to a Cadillac. Well, maybe not that drastic, but my point is that this chair definitely delivers the comfort. Pull the lever, lean back to the full recline position, and in a few minutes, it’s lights out for me. The different accent colors that are available also allow for some variety.

All of the components were well-protected in the box and arrived in perfect condition. The assembly process was fairly simple with the help of the instruction sheet, and in just a few minutes you can go from the box to a ready-to-use chair. The included white gloves are a nice touch and help to keep the chair clean during the assembly process.

I have short legs, so I have to set my chairs to the lowest position. A quick pull of the height adjustment lever and I am at the right level. After a few other adjustments of the armrests to find the sweet spot, I could spend my usual gaming sessions without having to shift around to get comfortable as I did with my old chair. Fewer distractions mean better focus on your game. I used the head and lumbar pillows at first, but after a while, I found that the lumbar pillow wasn’t right for me and, fortunately, it can be removed easily. I was fine with the head pillow so I left it in place. And after years of using what I will call a noisy office chair, this one from EWin is whisper quiet. I could shift my weight from side to side and move all around and not hear any noises. For me, that is a big plus. I can say that once you use a chair like this, there is no going back.

The retail price of $359 may seem a bit high at first, but you can find it on sale for a more palatable $279US. If you are like me and spend a lot of time in front of your computer, then an investment in a good chair makes sense. Is your current gaming chair ready to be replaced? Or maybe you are ready for a serious upgrade from an old office style chair? Either way, this is one you should check out. Plus, if you use promo code OCC at the EWin Racing store, you save 15% on your order.

 

Pros:

  • Smooth, quiet operation
  • Comfortable seat and back
  • Can recline to 155 degrees
  • Vertical adjustment
  • Armrests can independently adjust in four dimensions
  • Removable lumbar and head/neck support (pillows)

Lieferumfang:

  • EwinRacing – CP-BW3B Gaming Chair in gewählter Farbe
  • Montagematerial
  • Handschuhe
  • Montageanleitung

Design und Verarbeitung:

Der CP-BW3B Gaming Chair wird von EwinRacing in einer neutralen Verpackung geliefert, welche neben dem E-Win Logo auch noch mit einem Hinweis auf das hohe Gewicht sowie einer Trageempfehlung bedruckt ist.

Innerhalb der Verpackung ist der CP-BW3B Gaming Chair in einem zerlegten Zustand nicht nur in Folien verpackt, sondern stellenweise auch durch Schaumstoffpolster geschützt.
Hat man die Einzelteile aus der Verpackung entnommen, so hat man alle Bauteile vor sich liegen, welche man benötigt um den Gaming-Stuhl zusammenzubauen.

EwinRacing liefert neben einer bebilderten Anleitung, anhand welcher der Aufbau leicht von der Hand geht, auch noch das benötigte Werkzeug sowie ein paar weiße Handschuhe mit.

In der Regel platzieren wir den Montageabschnitt hinter der Produktbeschreibung. Da der CP-BW3B Gaming Chair jedoch als Bausatz geliefert wird, und eine vollständige Produktbeschreibung erst im zusammengebauten Zustand möglich ist, schieben wir die Montage in diesem Review mit in den Abschnitt der Produktbeschreibung.

Montage:

Im Vergleich zu Herstellern anderer Gaming geht EwinRacing den Aufbau etwas anders an, wodurch man im ersten Schritt nicht mit der Montage der Rollen beginnt, sondern mit der Montage der Rückenlehne.
Laut Montageanleitung muss man vor der Montage der Rückenlehne noch das Nackenkissen sowie auch das Kissen zur Lendenwirbelstütze an der Rückenlehne montieren. Da dies jedoch bei unserem Testmuster schon vormontiert waren, schauen wir sie uns noch einmal etwas genauer an.

Diese beiden Kissen sind passend zu der Farbgebung unseres Testmusters aus schwarz/weißem Kunstleder gefertigt.

Wo das Kissen zur Lendenwirbelstütze mit zwei dehnbaren Befestigungsbändern ausgestattet ist, verfügt das Nackenkissen über ein einzelnes Befestigungsband. Alle Bänder sind mit Verschlüssen versehen, wodurch sich die beiden Kissen einfach abnehmen und wieder anbringen lassen.

Auch wenn die beiden Kissen schon an der Rückenlehne befestigt sind, muss man noch eine kleine Vorbereitung treffen, um die Rückenlehne an der Sitzfläche befestigen zu können, denn EwinRacing hat die hierzu notwendigen Montageschrauben schon in die Montagegewinde der Rückenlehne eingedreht.

Bevor man die Rückenlehne montieren kann, muss man die Montageschrauben somit wieder herausdrehen.

Zur Montage der Rückenlehne befinden sich an der Sitzfläche schon zwei bewegliche Stahlelemente.

Nicht nur diese Aufnahmepunkte sind schon an der Sitzfläche vormontiert, sondern auch die beiden Armlehnen.
Betrachtet man die Sitzfläche einmal von ihrer Unterseite aus, so wird man hier neben drei breiten Gummibändern, welche zur Federung der Sitzfläche dienen, auch die Befestigungspunkte der Armlehnen vorfinden.

Diese sind als Langlöcher ausgelegt, wodurch man die Armlehnen je nach Bedarf nach innen oder außen verschieben kann. Zudem sind hier auch noch die Montageschrauben für die Basis zu finden, welche wie die Montageschrauben der Rückenlehne schon eingeschraubt sind und somit nicht in einzeln im Lieferumfang zu finden sind.

Die Montage der Rückenlehne erfolgt mittels der vier Inbusschrauben, welche wir zuvor aus der Rückenlehne herausgedreht haben.

In den beiden beweglichen Stahlelementen wurden jedoch nicht nur die zwei Montagebohrungen eingelassen, welche zur Befestigung der Rückenlehne dienen, sondern jeweils auch noch ein kleineres Gewinde.

Diese Montagegewinde dienen zur Befestigung von Kunststoffblenden, durch welche sich dann ein schlüssiges Design ergibt.

Um das Design vollständig abzurunden, befinden sich im Lieferumfang noch schwarze Kunststoffkappen, mittels welchen man die Montagelöcher verschließen kann.

Ist die Rückenlehne an der Sitzfläche montiert, so kann man mit der Montage der Basiseinheit beginnen. Diese ist nicht nur mit einer Spannfeder ausgestattet, durch welche man den Kraftaufwand einstellen kann, welcher zum betätigen der Wippfunktion benötigt, sondern auch mit einer Sperre, mit der man die Wippfunktion sperren kann.

Über den gleichen Hebel wird auch die Höhenverstellung betätigt.

Wie wir es schon kurz zuvor bei einem Blick auf die Unterseite der Sitzfläche gesehen haben, müssen die Montageschrauben für die Basiseinheit erst aus der Sitzfläche herausgedreht werden.
Im Anschluss kann man die Basiseinheit an der Sitzfläche befestigen.

Bei der Montage der Basiseinheit muss darauf geachtet werden, dass die Spannfeder zur Vorderseite der Sitzfläche zeigt.
Ist dieser Montageschritt vollzogen, kann man das aus Aluminium gefertigte Fußkreuz zur Montage vorbereiten.

Dieses muss hierzu im ersten Schritt auf den Kopf gedreht werden, denn nur so kann man den richtigen Druck ausüben, welchen man bei der Montage der Rollen aufwenden muss.

Hat man das Fußkreuz einmal auf den Kopf gedreht, ist auch schön zu erkennen, dass das Fußkreuz im Inneren mit zusätzlichen Streben ausgestattet wurde, welche als Verstärkung dienen.

Die seitens EwinRacing mitgelieferten Rollen sind passend zum Design des Gaming Chairs in einem schwarz/weißen Design gehalten.

Dieses Design konnte durch Einsätze erzielt werden, welche von der Außenseite auf die Rollen aufgesteckt wurden.

Die Rollen haben einen Durchmesser von 60 mm und sind mit einer recht festen Lauffläche ausgestattet, welche zwar schnelle Rollbewegungen zulassen, jedoch auch entsprechend lauter sind.

Die fünf Rollen werden einfach in die dafür vorgesehenen Bohrungen des Fußkreuzes eingesteckt. Hierzu ist jedoch ein gewisser Kraftaufwand notwendig.

Im Anschluss muss der Gasdruckdämpfer in das Fußkreuz eingesteckt

und mit dem Überwurfschutz versehen werden.

Hat man diese Arbeitsschritte vollzogen, kann die Sitzfläche auf den Gasdruckdämpfer aufgesetzt werden.

Anschließend kann man entweder von dem wuchtigen Anblick des CP-BW3B geflasht sein, sodass man den Stuhl gleich ausprobieren möchte, oder man nutzt die Chance, um sich alle Details einmal etwas genauer anzuschauen.

Da die montierte Kombination aus Sitzfläche, Basiseinheit und Rückenlehne recht schwer ist und das Aufsetzen auf den Gasdruckdämpfer hierdurch eine etwas zittrige Angelegenheit werden kann, hätten wir es besser gefunden, wenn die Montage der Rückenlehne der letzte Arbeitsschritt gewesen wäre.

Betrachtet man einmal die Sitzfläche und die Rückenlehne des CP-BW3B Gaming Chair etwas genauer, so hat man bei der von uns in diesem Test herangezogenen Variante des Stuhles eine schwarz/weiße Version vor sich stehen.

Die Sitzfläche sowie auch die Rückenlehne sind mit einer angenehm weichen Polsterung versehen, welche mit einem schwarz/weißen Kunstlederbezug bezogen wurde. Durch die weiche Polsterung wird einem zwar in der Regel ein angenehmerer Sitzkomfort geboten, jedoch kommt es hierdurch oftmals auch schneller zu einer sogenannten Sitzkuhle, weswegen wir den CP-BW3B Gaming Chair auch über einen längeren Zeitraum für euch testen werden.
Im Detail setzt EwinRacing hier auf eine Polsterung aus Kaltschaum, welcher auf einen Metallrahmen aufgezogen ist.

Bei dem verwendeten Kunstlederbezug setzt EwinRacing auf einen glatten und geschlossenen PU-Kunstlederbezug, welcher im Vergleich zu einem perforierten Kunstlederbezug nicht atmungsaktiv ausfällt. Dies kann gerade in heißen Sommertagen von Nachteil sein, da man hier bei langen Gamingsessions etwas ins schwitzen kommen kann.
Um den Gaming-Stuhl optisch aufzuwerten, hat EwinRacing die von uns herangezogene Variante nicht nur mit weißen Kunstlederelementen abgesetzt, sondern im Bereich der Sitzfläche auch mit weißen Nähten.

Die Außenkanten der Sitzfläche, der erhöhten Wangen sowie auch der kompletten Rückenlehne wurden zudem mit einem abgesetzten Kunstlederstreifen versehen.

Die einzelnen Nähte wurden seitens EwinRacing überaus sauber verarbeitet.

Um das Design gänzlich abzurunden, wurden nicht nur die beiden mitgelieferten Kissen mit einem eingestickten E-WIN Logo versehen, sondern auch der Bereich der Kopfstütze.

Schaut man sich jedoch einmal den Übergang von der Sitzfläche zu den Seiten der Sitzfläche etwas genauer an, so wird man hier einen Übergang von mehreren Kunstleder Elementen finden, welcher leider alles andere als sauber verarbeitet wurde.

Von der Form her wurde der CP-BW3B Gaming Chair an das Design moderner Sportsitze angelehnt, wodurch die Sitzfläche sowie auch der mittlere Bereich der Rückenlehne etwas vertieft sind. Links und rechts von diesen Bereichen wurde der Stuhl mit hervorstehenden Seitenwangen versehen, welche einem einen gewissen Seitenhalt geben.

Unterhalb des in die Rückenlehne eingestickten Logos wurden zwei Durchführungen in die Rückenlehne eingelassen, welche mit einer weißen Kunststoffdurchführung versehen sind.

Diese befinden sich, wie man es von einem Rennsitz aus einem Sportwagen der DTM etc. kennt, in etwa auf Schulterhöhe. Bei dem EwinRacing CP-BW3B Gaming Chair dienen diese Durchführungen jedoch nicht zur Durchführung des Sicherheitsgurtes, sondern zur Durchführung der elastischen Befestigungsbänder der beiden mitgelieferten Kissen. Leider ist die Farbe des hier verwendeten Kunststoffes jedoch nicht identisch zu der Farbe der gesetzten Nähte und der weißen Kunstlederelemente.

Betrachtet man die hervorstehenden Seitenwangen der Rückenlehne einmal von der Außenseite aus, so wird man feststellen, dass der eingesetzte Kunstlederbezug an dieser Stelle auf beiden Seiten leicht wellig aufgezogen wurde, wodurch die sonst ganz schicke Optik an einer recht auffälligen Stelle etwas gemindert wird.

Mit einem Blick auf die Rückseite des CP-BW3B Gaming Chairs findet man einen fast komplett geschlossenen PU-Kunstlederbezug vor. Dieser wurde auf der linken und rechten Seite mit einem Reißverschluss versehen, welcher jedoch nicht geöffnet werden kann, da sich dessen Enden im Inneren der Rückenlehne befinden.

Bei einem der beiden Reißverschlüsse mussten wir einen kleinen Verarbeitungsmangel feststellen. Dieser ist an mehreren Stellen so geschlossen, das ein Zahn des Reißverschlusses übersprungen wurde.

Der Reißverschluss ist dennoch fest verschlossen und geht auch dann nicht auseinander, wenn man den Stuhl an dieser Stelle etwas strapaziert.

Neben der von uns in diesem Test herangezogenen Farbvariante gibt es den CP-BW3B Gaming Chair von EwinRacing auch noch in sechs anderen Farbvarianten.

Der CP-BW3B Gaming Chair wurde von EwinRacing zwar optisch ansprechend, jedoch nicht zu 100% perfekt verarbeitet, denn bei genauerem Hinsehen findet man hier und da ein paar Stellen, an denen der verwendete Kunstlederbezug nicht ganz akkurat aufgezogen wurde.

Sitzkomfort und Ergonomie: 

Nachdem wir das erste mal auf dem CP-BW3B Gaming Chair platzgenommen haben und unsere Gaming Session Stunde um Stunde andauert bestätigt sich unser erster Eindruck von der Polsterung, denn diese bietet einen auch bei einer andauernden Nutzung einen guten Komfort. Die Polsterung der Rückenlehne ist ausreichend dick ausgeführt, ohne den Eindruck zu erwecken als würde man auf einem überpolsterten Sessel sitzen und gefühlt kilometerweit einsinken. Die seitlichen Backen bieten auch bei turbulenteren Spielrunden guten Halt. Auch die Sitzfläche besitzt diese angenehme Polsterung gepaart mit den seitlich sehr groß ausgeführten Wangen. Wie man es schon von anderen Gaming Stühlen her kennt, erlauben es einem diese Wangen nicht sich im Schneidersitz oder in anderen Sitzpositionen auf den Stuhl zu setzen.

Zu einem bequemen Sitzkomfort trägt bekanntlich nicht nur die verwendete Polsterung bei, sondern auch die Ergonomie. Auf diese hat EwinRacing besonderen Wert gelegt, wodurch sich alle Komponenten des CP-BW3B Gaming Chairs an die eigenen Bedürfnisse anpassen lassen.

Hier bietet der CP-BW3B Gaming Chair von EwinRacing einen weitaus höheren Funktionsumfang, als man es von vielen anderen Bürostühlen kennt.
Durch ein an der Basis angebrachtes Einstellrad kann der Kraftaufwand eingestellt werden, welcher benötigt wird, um mit der Rückenlehne nach hinten zu wippen.

Über einen Hebel auf der rechten Seite der Basis kann die Wippfunktion auf Wunsch in der Ausgangsposition gesperrt werden. Eine Sperre in der nach hinten gewippten Position ist leider nicht möglich. Der Neigungswinkel der Wippmechanik beträgt ca. 10°.

Über einen an der rechten Seite verbauten Hebel kann zudem der Neigungswinkel der Rückenlehne selbst verstellt werden. Die Rückenlehne kann so in einem Winkel von 85° – 155° verstellt werden.

Um den CP-BW3B Gaming Chair an die Größe des Nutzers anpassen zu können, kann dieser natürlich auch in der Höhe verstellt werden. Die hierzu verbaute Gasdruckfeder der Sicherheitsstufe 4 kann die Sitzfläche von ca. 49 cm auf ca. 61,5 cm heben und senken. Die Tragkraft der verbauten Gasdruckfeder liegt bei 150 Kg. Mit einer Minimalhöhe von ca. 49 cm ist die Sitzfläche im Vergleich zu anderen Gaming Stühlen auch in der niedrigsten Einstellung noch recht hoch, wodurch man zur Nutzung des CP-BW3B Gaming Chairs auf jeden Fall eine Körpergröße von 1,5 m haben sollte.

Durch die Möglichkeit, die Rückenlehne so weit nach hinten zu neigen, kann der Stuhl auch problemlos dazu genutzt werden, um eine entspannte Sitzhaltung einzunehmen, welche es einem erlaubt, auch einmal die Augen zu schließen, um z.B. auf einer Lanparty einmal etwas abzuschalten.

Um das Sitzgefühl perfekt machen zu können, hat EwinRacing auch die verbauten Armlehnen so ausgeführt, dass man diese in die verschiedensten Varianten verstellen kann.
Die seitens EwinRacing als 4D-Armlehnen bezeichnete Armlehnen lassen sich nicht nur in ihrer Höhe verstellen,

sondern können auch nach vorne bzw. hinten geschoben werden.

Ebenso ist es möglich, die Auflageflächen der Armlehnen nach links und rechts zu verschieben, sowie nach links und rechts zu verdrehen.

Es ist jedoch auch möglich, die komplette Armlehne nach innen oder außen zu verschieben. Um diese Verstellung vornehmen zu können, muss man jedoch auf das mitgelieferte Werkzeug zurückgreifen, da dies wie schon eingehend erwähnt durch die Langlöcher im Montagebereich der Armlehnen ermöglicht wird.

Die restlichen Verstellmöglichkeiten können ganz einfach durch das drücken oder ziehen eines Knopfes/Hebel ausgeführt werden.
Durch die Option auch die komplette Armlehne seitlich verschieben zu können handelt es sich bei den verbauten Armlehnen eigentlich um 5D-Armlehnen, wie man sie auch bei dem ein oder anderen Hersteller findet. Aus diesem Gesichtspunkt muss sich der CP-BW3B Gaming Chair nicht hinter anderen Modellen am Markt verstecken, welche mit dem Feature “5D-Armlehne” aufwarten wollen, denn genau die gleichen Funktionen bietet einem EwinRacing mit den verbauten 4D-Armlehnen.
Die verbauten Armlehnen verfügen im Inneren über einen Polsterkern, welcher auf der Außenseite mit einer flexiblen Kunststoffschicht versehen wurde.

Durch die überaus große Einstellmöglichkeit des Neigungswinkels und auch der Stellung der Rückenlehne kann man sich nicht nur für eine kleine Entspannungspause weit zurücklehnen, sondern auch eine gemütliche Sitzposition beim Gamen oder Betrachten von Filmen einnehmen. Gleichzeitig kann der CP-BW3B Gaming Chair jedoch auch sehr rückenschonend und ergonomisch eingestellt werden.

Durch den verwendeten Kunstlederbezug zeigt sich jedoch nicht nur an kühlen Wintertagen ein kleiner Nachteil, sondern auch an warmen Sommertagen. Steht der CP-BW3B Gaming Chair in einem kalten Büro, so dauert es aufgrund des verwendeten Materials ein paar Minuten, bis man ihn mit seinem Körper auf eine angenehme Betriebstemperatur aufgewärmt hat. An warmen Sommertagen ist dies genau der umgekehrte Fall, denn der verwendete Kunstlederbezug wurde nicht mit einer feinen Perforation versehen, wodurch er nicht belüftet ist und man so recht schnell ins schwitzen gerät. Besonders unangenehm ist dies, wenn man eine kurze Hose trägt, denn in diesem Fall bleibt man gerne einmal mit der Haut an der Sitzfläche kleben.

Die verbauten Rollen gleiten durch ihre Beschaffenheit nicht nur problemlos über einen feinen Teppich, sondern auch sehr einfach und schnell über einen Parkettboden. Leider sind die Rollen an dieser Stelle etwas lauter als die Rollen manch anderer Modelle.

Während den drei Wochen, in welchen sich der CP-BW3B Gaming Chair von EwinRacing in unserem Test befand und täglich zwischen 6 und 10 Stunden genutzt wurde, konnten wir keine Verschleißanzeichen wie eine Sitzmulde etc. erkennen.

Fazit:

Mit dem CP-BW3B Gaming Chair, welchen es in verschiedenen Farbkombinationen gibt, hat EwinRacing einen Gaming Chair in seinem Sortiment, welcher sich bestens für Anwender eignet, die nicht nur eine Runde an ihrem Rechner zocken wolle, sonder zudem auch einen ganzen Arbeitstag auf dem Stuhl verbringen müssen und somit auf einen entsprechend hohen Sitzkomfort angewiesen sind. Um einem diesen Komfort bieten zu können, hat EwinRacing den CP-BW3B Gaming Chair mit einer ganzen Reihe an Verstellungsmöglichkeiten versehen, wodurch er einem nicht nur eine bequeme Sitzposition bieten kann, in welcher man auch einmal etwas ausspannen kann, sondern auch eine sehr ergonomische Sitzposition gewährleistet, in der man viele Stunden am Schreibtisch arbeiten kann, ohne das man sich mit der Zeit hin und her bewegen muss, um den Rücken etwas zu entlasten. Das einzige Feature, welches dem CP-BW3B an dieser Stelle fehlt, ist die Möglichkeit zur Arretierung der Wippfunktion. Mittels der mitgelieferten Kissen kann der Komfort zusätzlich gesteigert werden. Durch seine Ergonomie hebt sich der EwinRacing CP-BW3B Gaming Chair nicht nur deutlich von günstigen Gaming Stühlen am Markt ab, sondern sorgt bei der richtigen Nutzung auch langfristig gesehen dazu, Rückenschädigungen vorzubeugen. Was die Verarbeitungsqualität angeht, konnte uns der CP-BW3B Gaming Chair im Vergleich zu dem angenehmen Sitzkomfort jedoch nicht so gut überzeugen, denn hier summieren sich mehrere kleine Schönheitsfehler, welche man in dieser Preisklasse eigentlich nicht erwarten würde. Wo man den Versatz am Reißverschluss nur beim genauen betrachten erkennen kann, sind die leichte Wellenbildung an den Außenseiten der Rückenlehne sowie die unschönen Übergänge an der Sitzfläche optische Mängel, welche in dieser Preisklasse nicht vorkommen sollen. Ein weiterer Kritikpunkt ist in den Rollen zu finden, welche durch ihre recht harte Lauffläche für ein recht lautes Laufgeräusch sorgen. Die Polsterung wurde hingegen sauber ausgeführt und wies auch nach einer dreiwöchigen Nutzungsdauer noch kein Anzeichen einer Sitzmulde oder andere Erscheinungsbilder einer Materialermüdung auf. Gleiches gilt auch für den verwendeten Kunstlederbezug, welcher jedoch je nach Temperatur für ein etwas unangenehmes Sitzgefühl sorgen kann. Dies ist jedoch ein Problem, mit welchem fast alle Gaming Stühle zu kämpfen haben, welche mit einem Kunstleder- oder gar Lederbezug ausgestattet sind. Da es sich bei dem EwinRacing CP-BW3B Gaming Chair um ein Produkt handelt, dessen Materialqualität sich erst bei einer langen Nutzungsdauer genau feststellen lässt, werden wir euch hier von Zeit zu Zeit mit entsprechenden Updates versorgen. Preislich liegt der EwinRacing – CP-BW3B Gaming Chair aktuell bei knapp 259€.

My First Gaming Chair Review – EWin Racing Champion Series

Today we are going to look at the Champion Series Gaming chair from EWin Racing. These guys make some fabulous gaming chairs that any respectable gamer will instantly fall in love with. I got mine, courtesy of EWin Racing and boy what a treat it is!

EWin Racing Champion Series – Introduction

EWin Racing makes all sorts of gaming chairs and two things immediately stand out when you buy one of their products. First, the construction is superb with full metal body and limited plastics unless it is necessary. Second, the seats are meant for uninterrupted gaming.

The Champion series is comfortable and adjust quickly to your body type thanks to its unique design and ergonomics. Though mine was a sample that I received from EWin Racing, it was surprisingly brand new, which gave me the opportunity to look at the packaging, and that’s where we shall begin the review.

EWin Racing Champion Series – Unboxing

Unboxing the chair reveals an aluminium 5 star base, which is light and doesn’t feel flimsy like some plastic footing of other brands. Removing the base reveals the back rest, which already comes attached to the neck and adjustable lumber support. Almost immediately, I fell in love with the design of the chair. It isn’t “in-your-face”, but it has dramatic ascents running across the backrest and cushions. Remove the back rest, and you get to the accessory box and the seat.

The accessory box has the instruction manual, side covers for the arms, hydraulic system and cover, wheels (they are matched to the chair!), a base platform that lets you go up and down plus the spring for the backrest and a pair of rubber gloves.

EWin Racing Champion Series – Assembly

I began by first putting in the wheels under the base, which is surprisingly simple. You just have to push the wheel heads into the slots on the bottom. No detailed work needed here.

The next step is to attach the back with the seat. Thankfully, Ewin Racing provides four bolts preassembled into the body of the back rest. Use an Allen key to remove those four bolts and keep them aside. On the seat are two flanges to the rear that you then line-up with the back rest such that the four bolts go through the flanges and back into their respective holes. Loosely screw the bolts and tighten all four until the back rest is firmly secured to the seat. (See image below)

Flip the back rest and seat combo over to expose the underbelly of the seat. Once again all necessary bolts are attached, so you just remove those that you need without having to worry about confusing numbers and directions. To attach the tri-stand that connects the seat to the hydraulic and base, just undo the screws that match with the tri-stand’s slots and fix it on nice and tight. (See image below)Bolting to the underside of seat

To install the hydraulic into the base just drop it in and secure it in place with the hydraulic cover. Then grab the whole chair and drop it over the hydraulic system to finish assembly. All that remains later is to hide the flanges on the seat using the only remaining pair of covers.

EWin Racing Champion Series – What Stood Out

As a whole, the chair boasts a metal construction with high density perforated leather foam and a beaded edge running around the chair with padding on the arm rests that are firm but not too much. Same goes for the seat cushioning and back cushioning that isn’t too soft nor tough. (See image below)

Moving to the bottom, each leg has some amount of rubber padding on the front, so your feet don’t slide off if you like propping them up on the base legs like I do. The wheels are smart in that they don’t need screws to stay in place, so you never have to worry about them coming undone.

Back up to the seat, the lumbar support and neck cushion are surprisingly well designed. They don’t feel like an after though but rather a part of the overall chair. The folks at EWin Racing probably included these cushions right from the beginning of the design. And, if you aren’t human and prefer neglecting the comfy pillows, you can remove both.

The arm rests do go up and down with a range of 800mm, which isn’t bad though a bit of movement to the sides or the front would have been nice. As for the chair itself, it sits 470mm high at its lowest position and can rise to 600mm at its highest. The knob underneath the seat lets you adjust the back rest tension to suit your preference. I like keeping mine at the lowest tension, which is how the chair reached me. (See image below) 

The last thing I want to cover is lowering the back. This chair does a complete 180 degree such that you are horizontal on it! Surprisingly, it is handy depending on what you want to do. Playing an intense game that needs your full concentration? Keep the tension high and the back at near vertical. But if you’re going to relax, Netflix and chill then push the handle to fall as far back as you need. Remember that knob to adjust the seat and back rest tension? Well, that’s what comes handy here as you finely balance the tension to suit your preference when tilting back.

EWing Racing Champion Series Gaming Chair Verdict

With plenty of styling options, embroidery choices, and killer looks, there is no doubt that EWin Racing Champion Series is a gaming chair. They may call it an “ergonomic computer gaming office chair, ” but that’s just sugar coating the truth, which is that the Champion Series is a comfortable beast looking gaming chair worthy of being a permanent companion to your gaming rig.

Ewinracing Champion Series Gaming Chair Review

Overview

Sometime after looking at the excellent noblechairs Icon, I was contacted by another company that also sold Gaming chairs. This company was E-Win, and no I’d never heard of them either. Sometime after I was contacted and a few emails later and I was in the possession of an Ewinracing Champion Series Gaming Chair.

The chair itself is available in a variety of colour schemes (black/white, black/blue, black/red & black/orange/white). We have here today the black/red version.

 

The chair arrived at pcG in a very large box, with a hole in the side; obviously not Ewinracing’s fault. Luckily the contents were (surprisingly) unharmed by what must have been a traumatic event, for the box that is. The box gives very little away as to its contents, but it’s definitely from E-Win and I’m pretty sure the parts of a chair are inside…

As one would guess in the box are a number of parts and some assembly is required. As for packaging, well it survived the courier and that in itself is impressive. But overall I would say packaging and presentation was adequate and inline with many a Gaming Chair that we’ve seen in the past.

 

 

In the top of the box underneath the base and the foam padding we find the main back of the chair, protected by a simple plastic bag. Removing this allows us to see the next layer that houses the accessories box and the seat of the chair, complete with pre-installed arms. Again the seat is covered by a plastic bag and the metal arms (that attach to the seat back) are further protected with foam covers.

 

 

looking at the accessories box we can see that here we find the main instruction guide and simple it looks too! In addition to this the box also holds a plethora of parts: the tilt mechanism, hydraulic piston, piston cover, side covers (with screw covers), 5 wheels, some screws and a couple of allen (hex) keys and also some gloves! The gloves are there to help you keep the seat clean during assembly; a nice touch but more on this later. It’s also worth noting that the parts received (that are correct BTW) are not the same as the ones laid out in the instruction guide. ?

Construction

 

As I mentioned earlier the instructions are simple, but that’s a good thing as it looks like the Ewinracing Champion Series might be one of the easiest Gaming Chairs to assemble that we’ve seen. Although the instructions are still wrong, but even that’s a good thing…That’s because the first two steps of the assembly instructs you to install the two cushions (head/lumbar) to the back of the chair. And, that step was already done for me as the back of the chair (as you can see from the image above) already has the cushion in place. Result! ? The lumbar cushion is held in place by two simple (yet a little ugly) straps, this allows the cushion to be positioned up and down. But, more importantly, it means that it stays there. The head/neck cushion is held in place by a simple strap that loops through the two holes in the back of the chair.

 

Next it’s time to take a look at the seat of the chair as Step 4 sees us mounting the seat to the back of the chair itself. Worth noting that the armrests are already in place and this will indeed cut down on the assembly time. Step 3 asks you to remove the bolts that are already loosely in position on the sides of the seat back. I was quite impressed to see an additional flat washer pre-installed to protect the leather from damage by the locking spring washer.The task of holding the seat back in position and mounting it to the base is a little cumbersome and to be fair a little help here is always welcome. I forged on though (on my own) and without too much effort I manged to get all the bolts in place (loosely) after just a few minutes. These were then all tightened in turn…

If there was any evidence of cost cutting it is during Step 6 that you’re likely notice this. This is because not only are the plastic parts cheap to look at, they were also both dirty (above right) and there were numerous sharp (see centre image above) edges. Now I know this is not a premium Gaming Chair, but this needs sorting as it lets down the overall (good) feel of the product.

Fitting those side covers was also easy enough, but note they are not the same the larger one goes on the side with the tilt mechanism, something not mentioned in the instructions. I was impressed to see the inclusion of the screw hole covers that hides the screws once in place. Something missing from even premium brand chairs.

Next we return our attention to the base of the chair, literally. As Step 8 sees us install the main tilt mechanism to the base of the chair. First we need to remove the four pre-installed bolts attach the mechanism and reinstall the bolts. Again it’s best to get each bolt in position first before any tightening is done. Also note the mechanism MUST be fitted in the correct orientation (Step 9), with the front label on the mechanism facing the front of the chair.

Finally we turn our attention to the base of the chair and its associated wheels. Here again there was a possible sign of cost cutting as the base of the chair itself, while well made, seemed incredibly light and there was no bracing in its moulded form.All five wheels fitted with ease with a simple push. The base was complete once the hydraulic piston was slotted into the hole in the top and covered by the telescopic plastic cover.

With the chair and the base complete it was time to fit one atop the other and Voila! Very nice it looks too ?

First Impressions


First impressions are really rather a good, the Ewinracing Champion Series Gaming chair looks good, appears comfortable and seems well made. The E-Win embroidering is also rather nice too… ?

The only drawbacks I can find are the cheap, dirty (yet easily cleaned) plastic parts and the fact that the base of the chair seems surprisingly light. The chair itself seems really good, I very much like the adjustable (position) lumbar support and the chair also sports a good deal of adjustability also.

Hardware Performance

 

  • CHAIR ADJUSTMENT


On the base of the chair there one main control and one adjustable knob. The lever on the right side of the chair (when you’re sat on it that is) controls the height of the chair. Note that the lowest height of the base of the chair (from the floor) is approximately 45cm while at at its highest it’s around 60cm. Pulling the lever out unlocks the back of the chair allowing it to tilt backwards. Conversely, pushing the lever in will lock the chair in position.The ease at which the chair can be tilted back is controlled by the cylindrical knob in the centre of the chair.

  • ARMREST

 

As with the previously reviewed noblechairs Icon the armrests can move within four different directions. The two buttons on the inside of the armrest allow the armrest itself to either move sideways (left/right) or forwards and backwards, the arm can also be swivelled left and right. The lever on the outside of the armrest allows the armrest to move up and down. There is obviously plenty of adjustment here and most should be happy.

  • COMFORT

I’ve now been sat in this chair for almost 3 weeks and I have to say that I’m really rather impressed. There’s no doubting that at this point the chair is extremely comfortable. Of course, what it might be like in a year or two from now is hard to tell. I only say this as there’s no doubt that it’s not as well made as the noblechairs Icon, that itself is the benchmark of quality. But in E-win’s defence here you’re not paying for it either…From a pure asethetics and comfort point of view there really is little to complain about here. The chair is comfortable, adjustable and I just love that positional lumbar support. OK, so the chair might not be the most understated of Gaming Chairs that we’ve seen, but come on – you know it looks good…In fact considering that this chair can be bought and delivered (at the time of review) for approximately £210 (using pcGameware discount code), this Gaming Chair is easy to recommend.

Final Thoughts

I have to confess I’m really pretty impressed with the Ewinracing Champion Series Gaming Chair. It’s got the looks, it is for the most part (and given the cost) well made and more importantly it’s really comfortable.The Ewinracing Champion Series Gaming Chair arrived at pcG in a somewhat lacklustre yet eco-friendly box. There was even a hole in the side of it thanks to the pesky couriers no doubt, but all contents within remained undamaged. Packaging is still best described as adequate although it is in line with all of the Gaming Chairs that we’ve seen before.As is common with Gaming Chairs the Champion Series chair needed to be assembled first and the instructions were clear and concise but unfortunately, they were also wrong in places, providing instructions for assembly that was, in fact, already done! Although to be fair that’s a good thing; right!? I didn’t even have to attach the arms to the seat as that was also done, in fact the assembly was complete within around 15-20 mins.Once built the Ewinracing Champion Series Gaming Chair was found to be quite the looker. I’m a fan of the colour scheme (black/white, black/blue & black/white/orange also available) and I really liked the E-Win embroidered logo on both the seat and both of the cushions. As soon as I sat in the chair I felt comfortable, there’s the right amount of support laterally and the positional lumbar support is really nice. This is especially true as thanks to the (somewhat unsightly straps) it stays in position. After Gaming (here’s looking at you Black Desert) for countless hours, over numerous weeks, the chair was found to be comfortable at all times.Overall the adjust ability was also found to be good, there’s height adjustment, back angle adjustment, tilt with variable control and the armrest that move back/forth, left/right, up/down and they swivel too.Overall Ewinracing have produced a great Gaming chair in the Champion Series, the only fly in the ointment really is the fact there’s some cost cutting here and there. This can be found in some cheap plastic parts on the side of the chair and the somewhat lightweight base. But to be fair once you’re sat in it all of that is likely to be forgotten…

EWinRacing Hero Series Gaming Chair Review

*Thanks to EWinRacing for providing us with their EWinRacing Hero Series Ergonomic Computer Gaming Office Chair for 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.

EwinRacing Hero Gaming Chair

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.

You can your very own EWinRacing chair by heading to their website.

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.

EwinRacing Hero Gaming Chair 2

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 gaming 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.

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.

  • Style Name: Flash Series
  • Chair Type: Gaming/Office Chair
  • Foam Type: High Density Intergrated 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

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.

Review: Ewin Champion Series Gaming Chair with Pillows

Serious gamers probably found out by now that spending a lot of time at their desks will cause them some gruesome backaches. Thankfully, they won’t have to give up on their passion, they only need to choose a better chair. The perfect chair, actually. 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. It’s one of the most comfortable chairs I’ve ever used. After long hours of sitting in it, I didn’t have any of the back problems I normally would after a day of work.

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 five- star aluminum base looks good and is quite durable too. A 120mm class- 4 gas lift completes the picture. It can support up to 150kb or 330lbs. 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. The chair only costs $279 right now. Its normal retail price is $349, however, these days you can get it 20% off. Given the level of comfort, it is able to ensure, this is a more than reasonable price to pay for the chair. It is available in a great variety of colors too, so you can insert it to any office or room without it looking completely awkward. This modern chair is available in combinations of black with orange, pink, fuchsia, blue, green, red and white. Every color option looks simply great. Also, shipping is free in the US and EU.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
