The name E-win is new to the gaming scene but the OEM crafting the products is not. This is not just some start company hoping to make a quick buck; they have an award-winning background and vast knowledge of ergonomics, quality and care.

Pricing varies from one model to the next, but this one is particular is retailing the day of review for £226, €259 & $290, due to time-limited flash deal!

The build process is actually very straightforward, and the included manual is very clear, and does feature coloured images to aid you further. Something other brands should all be doing…but don’t

The product arrived in beneath box which weighs a whopping 20KG+. Space is key for a smooth built process, but if you’ve assembled one in the past, less space is doable. I was pleased to see the additional card and foam inserts to keep the chair safe during transit. Upon unpacking each part, I found them to be factory fresh with not a single blemish or issue.

A secondary box contains the additional parts such as the wheels.

Setup makes use of hex bolts already in the chair, so remove them and check the strapping on the backside is clicked together.

Place the back onto the base, re-insert the same screws you removed and add the side cover with additional hex bolts at either side.

 

Remove the four bolts from the underside, and add the base.

The wheels pop into place and the piston the same.

 

Sit the chair ontop, and wait for the click to ensure its made contact.

It’s the little things that make a big difference, and this thing just oozes quality. From material used, the stitching, and the padding above all. This thing does not sink or flatten down (in a bad way) like the cheaper ones on the market. The arms can be moved up/down, forward, backward and closer or further away. Need more control? Well, these angle too!

Side by side with our now retired chair from a few years back, while it served its purpose well it just highlights how much better the E-Win Champion Series Gaming Chair really is. This thing is taller, wider, better quality and superior in comfort levels, and not just when you first sit either.

Assembly took about 10-15 minutes, and my first experience on the chair was a real eye opener

[Final Thoughts]

When I transited over from a back-breaking a dining chair, to a real gaming chair about two-year backs, I thought I’d found true comfort and elegance, I even experienced other top brands when friends and family opted to go down other routes, but I was wrong. The experience I’ve had with the Champion Series Gaming from E-win has really changed my perception of how a gaming chair should look, move and feel.

To say I’m happy would be an understatement, the first impressions were so much better than my last chair. The build smoother, and the initial feeling of comfort way better. You could argue feel and taste, are a personal thing, and sure I hear you, but until you experience something this good in person, then my words alone are all I can offer. Don’t be put off by the lesser known name, everyone needs to start somewhere, and this company is going to be huge, mark these words!

We can’t escape one simple fact, which…. no matter which region you’re from, this is a lot of money to invest, but as are the other brand asking prices too. Look at this another way, this isn’t just for fun and comfort, We’re talking about yolur long-term health too, and I think its a solid investment. If your jumping between other brands and can’t quite decide I implore you to take a look at E-Win’s range too.

Thanks to E-Win for proving the sample to us, and we look forward to seeing more from them in the near future.

Throne of Games — EWin Flash XL Gaming Chair Review

EwinRacing Flash XL Gaming Chair

When you work a desk job for as long as I have, you end up trying a lot of office chairs. From top-of-the-line Aerons, to off-the-shelf low end Office Depot generics, I’ve sat in them all. My experience has largely been that the differences between the high and low end chairs don’t tend to feel they warrant the price hikes, so for personal use at home it’s just been easier to defer to whatever is available in my limited price range, suffering through a long succession of back-numbing lackluster seating experiences. Considering how often I sit at a desk, working and gaming, the thought has occurred to me more than once that maybe I should give my backside more comfortable accommodations. Unfortunately, there is a vast array of desk chairs available with a wide range of price points and very little opportunity to actually sit on one and try it out. Cost does not necessarily equate to comfort, and dishing out big bucks for the latest testament to ergonomics may leave you sore in more ways than one.

I’ve never really been sold on the value proposition of gaming chairs; they have generally seemed overpriced, gimmicky, and inferior to even standard office chairs. When EWin told us they wanted to send us one of their Flash XL Gaming Chairs, I’ll be honest, I didn’t get my hopes up too high. I’m very happy to say that my fears were unfounded.

It should come as no surprise that an extra large chair comes in a big heavy box. The good news is that it’s a very durable, thick cardboard box, so there was little chance of the contents being damaged en route.

Not pictured: Family cat FREAKING OUT over a new box in the house

Assembly of the chair took roughly 30 minutes, with the hardest part being the first step of attaching the back to the seat- I had to pull the reclining lever and bear down hard on it to draw the arm that gets screwed in to the back far enough to clear the cushioning of the seat, and then painstakingly line up the screw holes. Once that was done, it was pretty much all about putting the wheels and hydraulic stem in place, as everything else came assembled in the box and even the two pillows were already set in place. Allen wrenches were provided in the box and there was no need to break out my own tools.

Let me impress upon you how large this chair is when assembled:

This photo was taken before the Flash XL ate the other chair whole

At a variable height of roughly 48” and a width of 22.8”, the EWin Flash XL is less a chair and more of a throne. At half elevation, my wife’s legs dangle off of it like she was a child. It is, in a word, MAGNIFICENT. I’m considerably taller than she is, however, and being able to adjust the lift much higher than most chairs is a welcome change (Now I just need a taller desk!). The “4D” adjustable armrests are a treat as well- horizontal angle, height, and positioning controls allow for specific customization according to where my arms fell. It is also possible to recline the back to a point almost level with the seat, but at that point the center of gravity makes things a little sketchy, so I wouldn’t plan on taking any naps like that. The only feature that my smaller chair had that I would have liked to take advantage of more with the EWin is the ability to use the tilt back to recline a bit at will. Technically, the chair can tilt back, and even lock into a tilted position, but the girth, weight and height of the chair make it less of a relaxing activity and more of a chore, and ultimately superfluous due to the overall comfort of the chair once I adjusted the various settings to my satisfaction. In fact, my one little gripe is that the chair’s size makes it harder to maneuver than smaller office chairs. That added scale and build does come with a trade-off.

White gloves are provided to avoid getting greasy hands while assembling

So the Flash XL is sturdy and highly adjustable, but is it comfortable? Thankfully, this is where the chair really excels. The high density memory foam is firm at first but once you sink into it a bit it really feels like you are floating a few feet above the ground. I never once felt the steel frame underneath. The roomy seat flanked on either side by the plush side cushions keep you in place without the constriction I found in previous gaming chairs I’ve sat in. The entire chair is wrapped and neatly stitched with a soft polyurethane leather that I was concerned wouldn’t breathe well if things got sweaty, but I haven’t noticed any issues so far. The lumbar and head pillows are very plush and easy to adjust once seated as they are held in place by elastic straps. That said, if you aren’t on the large or tall side, you may want to remove them, as they are positioned to fit the scale of the chair and may not be comfortable.

EXCELLENT

EWIN FLASH XL GAMING CHAIR

The EWin Flash XL is categorically the most comfortable desk chair I have ever sat on (and as I said before, I have sat on a lot). The sturdy build, high level of adjustability, and plush memory foam/PU leather construction attest to the high quality of this chair, but what really sets it apart is the larger scale that allows for a seating experience I never knew existed before.

EWINRACING CHAMPION SERIES GAMING CHAIR REVIEW

If you have a desk job, you will spend over five years of your life sitting down at a desk. You can double that amount if you game or browse on a desktop at home for a few hours a night. It’s a daunting statistic when you think about it. We all spend over a third of our lives sleeping on mattresses, of which we spend a few hundred, if not thousands, on. So it begs the question: Should we take note of this and invest in a decent office chair too? It is crucial to sustaining a healthy posture and eliminating any bad back issues you may face in your later years.

There are many varieties of office/desk chair out there, and the cost of them can vary, greatly. The old saying “You get what you pay for” rains very true when it comes to purchasing a decent chair that can consistently service your back and posture for many years to come. We shouldn’t scrimp on cost when it comes to purchasing an office/desk chair, but most of us always do – myself included.

I usually turn my nose up at any chair costing more than £100. “A chair is a chair. It doesn’t need to be complicated. All you do is sit in it”, I would say, but as the years tick on by, I soon realise how many hours I spend at a desk. If I spend hundreds on a mattress, then sitting at a desk for over seven hours a day justifies the same kind of investment for the sake of avoiding a bad back in my later years.

The EwinRacing Champion Series gaming chair retails for €349 EU / £279 UK / $349 US and it is currently on sale for €223 EU / £190 UK / $237 US whilst also using our own 15% off voucher code ‘consolemonster’. You could say that this is probably the lower end of how much you should spend on a office/desk chair, but I’ve seen chairs costing much more than this and still have less features and quality – I’m looking at you IKEA! So on paper, the EwinRacing gaming chairs seems a bit of a bargain, but how are they in practice? Let’s find out…

Setting up the Champion Series chair was very simple, thanks to supplying all the tools and the helpful guide that lists all the necessary steps needed to assemble it. During the chair’s assembly I noticed how good the general quality of the parts are, with the only let down being the plastic arms, but with that said, even these arms carry particular features I’ve yet to experience on my past chairs. In less than 30 minutes I had the chair fully built and ready for its first test.

As features go, the Champion Series offers many buttons, leavers and switches to help achieve maximum sitting comfort. For me, the base of a seat is important. There is nothing worse then having a thinly padded seat that last barely a year before you begin to feel the framework inside. Thanks to its fairly thick padding of 10 cm, the Champion Series will be supporting your derrière for a long time.

The back support is just as important and the Champion Series caters well in this department too. The back rest dominates this chair’s form factor. Once assembled, it was the first thing to trouble me, because my current chair it replaces (a 5+ old chair from IKEA) is one of those short-backed chairs. I was never a fan of large executive chairs with high backs. This isn’t the companies biggest chair either, but should this trouble you as well, I would look at the Calling Series, which has a slightly smaller frame. But with all that said, I could slow get used to a high backed chair for many reasons.

Adjusting the back position is done by pushing down on the right side leaver, which is located where the back rest meets the seat. Powered by some fairly strong springs, the back can jump forward fairly rapid if you’re not leaning back on it, so it helps to apply some pressure to it. Adding a little more pressure whilst leaning back moves the back of the seat backwards very easy, and as you keep leaning back you soon start to notice one of this chairs key features – the ability to move the back almost fully horizontal!

Now I don’t know who would want to do this in any office environment, but at home I can see the appeal – if you wish to relax and pretend you’re in a dentist chair, this feature can seem pretty great. I don’t think I will be using this feature much, but to know the back can go backwards further than most chairs, to enjoy a relaxed posture, it’s welcoming. I must say though, I didn’t feel too comfortable setting the chair back to its maximum lean position, because my back is beyond the chair’s centre position, it felt that my weight would eventually tip me over if I wasn’t too careful.

Very popular with gaming chairs these days are the lumber and head cushions. These are held on by a pair of elasticated straps and plastic buckle clips. The straps come pre-fitted, wrapped around the bottom and two holes located in the neck area of the back seat. The lumber cushion alone makes a huge difference to my sitting experience; the neck cushion however, probably not so much. Whilst the chair is more reclined, I can see the neck cushion having more of a purpose. For me, the straps could be a little tighter, or at least hold the cushions in their adjusted position, because they always require constant adjustment every time you sit back into the chair.

On either side of the seat you’ll find the plastic arm rests. Just like most chairs, each arm rest can be raised and lowered to your own preference. For me I wish they could go a little more lower than these currently allow. Pressing a small button on the side of the rest allows you to slide the top part of the arm rest forward and backwards, which is a nice feature. Another button allows you to slide the top portion sideways towards and away from the seat. Finally, you can also apply a little force to the rotation of each arm rest to pivot them diagonally inwards and outwards. So all in all, with these four adjustments, you should find the perfect sweet spot for how your arms rest on them. These arms come pre-bolted to the seat, however if you prefer, these can be unscrewed and removed entirely.

After two weeks using the Champion Series I am slowly getting used to its dominant size. The general build quality has always felt very sturdy and solid, and I can imagine this chair would serve me well for many years. The pleather material used in the seating appears to be of a high quality, that doesn’ look like it will begin to flake off for some time. The cushions and seat padding feels like they contain a good quality and firm density of foam that should take the weight and reshape themselves after use for many sittings.

My only gripe is that I felt that the size of the seat could be slightly smaller for me. At 5’8” I found that my feet would leave the floor when I adjusted the seat to the correct height for my desk height (a standard 72 cm high). Usually, I rest my feet on the wheel frame underneath, but with the rather generous seat depth, my feet would miss the frame and dangle beyond its reach. With my feet not resting on the floor, this isn’t good for the blood circulation to my legs, so I had to seek an alternative solution by buying a cheap footrest from IKEA.

As you can see from the photo above, the overall size of the chair has troubled me from day one. I guess I prefer a smaller, more compact desk chair. For me, if the Champion Series could come in a slightly more compact form factor, I think EwinRacing could be on to a winner. The Calling Series could indeed tick that box, and I hope I can sample that chair also soon. But for someone taller and more leggy than me, the Champion Series might be a perfect chair for you because, as features to price goes, you really can’t do any better than investing in an EwinRacing Champion Series chair. Give your back the support and comfort it deserves and check them out.

Hands On: EWin Hero Series Gaming/Office Chair

Yes, I’m reviewing a chair.  It’s something I thought unlikely but the opportunity arose and I saw this thing and simply couldn’t pass it up.

I mean – look at it!  Impressive, right? – The EWin Hero Series Gaming/Office Chair.

When it arrived on my doorstep, the first thing that struck me was – almost obviously – the size of the box. The size of the box, and the weight of the box.
These two things alone tell me a couple of things – it’s heavy, so it’s not cheap – it’s big, so it’s almost nearly completely assembled.
I was right on both counts.   There’s lots of metal in this chair, making it hardy but not cumbersome.   I was relieved to find not many parts to put together.

My picture doesn’t do it justice though, my little office space doesn’t lend much to photography.

The chair just looks slick!  It comes with blue, red, or green accents.
It’s certainly ergonomic, sturdy and comfortable but won’t let you curl up lounge in it – keeping you upright and alert while gaming or working.

The bucket-style has a durable steel frame and high-density memory foam.
If you look at the frame, you’ll see that the ergonomic parts of the chair (the “winged” sides, and “cupped” seat) are actually a part of the frame. They’re not just hunks of foam just sitting out there.   They’re integral.

The 5-star wheeled base is aluminum – something you don’t find in a lot of chairs.
It wouldn’t be much use having a sturdy chair, and a class-4 gas lift (330lbs/150kg) if the base would crack under the pressure.

Putting the chair together didn’t take long. There are just the screws to put the back onto the seat, and the base onto the seat.
Two different sized screws come with two different sized allen wrenches – nice touch.
You’ll find the screws already in place in the chair – helpfully novel. This way you don’t misplace them in the packaging.
The screws were a little fiddly to get into place – the hole kind of got a little lost in the chair material but this is hardly an issue.

It even comes with gloves! Keep your hands, and your nice new chair clean while you put it together.

The seat isn’t overly complicated.  There’s a lever that adjusts the height, and a lever that adjusts the angle of the back.
The back adjustment lever looks and works like something you’d find in a car to adjust your car seat – for all you racing gamers out there.
The lock/tilt mechanism adjusts the overall angle of the seat.
It does sit high – if you’re on the shorter side, your feet may not touch the floor.

Two pillows – one for lumbar, and the other for your head/neck are adjustable on elastic runners.

The leather surfaces seem to be easy to clean/wipe down.

A couple of nice little touches make the chair just a little more special – aside from the included assembly gloves – the way the seat cushion is nicely embedded into the seat – nice and square – it’s obviously there but intentionally a part of the design.  Also, the covers for the back/seat assembly.  The plastic covers cover the screws, and screw in themselves – take note though, they’re different shape for each side. One for the “normal” side, the other for the back adjustment mechanism.

I don’t have much negative to say about the EWin Hero Series Gaming Chair. Just the screws being fiddly – that ensures a good fit though.
It is a $360 chair (15% off if you use code TB at EWinRacing.com) – it might seem pricey but you’ll pay that for a regular office chair that’ll tear, puncture, and flake (like my old one did) – it won’t look nearly as good either!

The chair are certified BIFMA (Business and Institutional Furniture Manufacturers Ass.), ISO 9001, and Underwriters Laboratories Approved (UL). So, as long as you use your common sense around it, it’ll be safe and serve you well.

Face it, you spend a lot of time either in it, or looking at it – you had might as well enjoy it,

EWin Champion Series gaming chair provides comfort and flair for your derrière

HOME RACING

EWin’s Champion series gaming chair brings extreme coziness, with some racing flair, to make your gaming and PC sessions more comfortable.

 

EWin Champion Series Ergonomic

Chairs built for gamers are like most things that fall into the category – audacious and a little bit over the top. The Ewin Champion Series Ergonomic chair skirts that line, though, and while it looks like it was pulled from a race car, it’s not entirely ridiculous-looking. It’s quite comfortable, offering plenty of lumbar and neck support for long gaming sessions.

I’ve been using the EWin Champion Series Ergonomic gaming chair for the last two months. For my first gaming chair, I’m quite happy with it.

About this review

EWin sent a Champion Series Ergonomic for evaluation. The suggested retail price is $369 but is often discounted on Amazon.

See at Amazon

Ewin Champion Series Ergonomic features

  • Materials: Metal frame, synthetic leather chair, cold molded foam cushions, high back with an integrated headrest, and plastic armrests.
  • Adjustability: 360-degree swivel, 155-degree adjustable backrest, adjustable height, 4D adjustable armrests, tilt lock and tilt angle lock.
  • Foam Density: 54kg/m3.
  • Weight support: Up to 330 lbs (150 kg).

The Ewin Champion Series Ergonomic chair is by no means cheap. Indeed, it’s about $100 more than my previous standard but high-quality leather office chair. Nonetheless, EWin includes a lot of features for comfort configuration that make up for the high price tag.

The EWin arrives in a big box with assembly required. The directions were easy to read, and the entire setup took around 20 minutes including the unboxing. Each piece was individually wrapped for protection. A simple included Allen wrench is all that is needed for the bolts in the chair.

EWin Champion Series Ergonomic

The chair is made from PU (bicast) leather with excellent stitching and cold molding-foam on the inside, all supported by a steel frame. The chair used for this review uses blue, white and black colors, although there is also an orange version, and EWin makes other styles with various color combinations.

There are two adjustable pillows – one for the neck and one for the lower back (lumbar) – that are strapped to the chair to ensure they never fall off but also allow for movement.

The base with five roller wheels is made from solid aluminum, making the total weight of the chair a hefty 48 lbs (22 kg). There is a 120MM class-4 gas lift, giving the chair enough support for someone up to 330 lbs (150 kg).

EWin Champion Series Ergonomic

The “4D” armrests have a thin layer of PU leather on top and can move forward, back, left, or right, including clockwise and counterclockwise rotations.

For adjustments, the chair can recline between 85 and 155 degrees through a side lever. A knob on the bottom rotates to lock the rocker, letting you choose between a stiff experience or one where you can lean back and rock like most office chairs. As expected, the EWin is also height adjustable using the gas lift and lever that comes out from the side.

Once assembled, the Ewin Champion Series Ergonomic chair is robust and sharp-looking.

Ewin Champion Series Ergonomic comfort

So how comfortable is this chair for sitting hours on end while playing games or using the computer?

Compared to an office chair, gaming chairs in general – and the EWin specifically – have a more wrap-around feel with pads coming out from the sides. It’s a bit odd as you’re not pulling G’s compared to a race car, but at the same time, it’s comforting having a chair the embraces you. The design pushes your shoulders a bit forward, which is not bad for gaming or typing, but in the long term it may not be ideal for those with poor posture or rounded (anterior rotation) shoulders.

The padding is great. EWin uses cold-cured foam molding, which is the same process that is found in high-end cars with ergonomic seats. The process ensures more stability, less air-escaping and more long-term durability. There’s no deflating when you sit down like some cheaper foam and cloth seats. Combined with the lumbar pillow for your lower back, the EWin was very comfortable for working behind my desk all day.

I’m not a huge fan of the seat’s controls, however. The tilt-tension control that modifies the chair’s ability to lean back is under the seat and not easy to access while sitting. Granted, the EWin is like most chairs in this sense, but many premium seats offer a lever on the side to enable or disable the feature.

The “4D” armrests go above and beyond what any standard office chair offers. Moving the rests forward, backward, in and out, and up and down seems like a bit of overkill, but when it comes to comfort and personalization, more options are better than less.

EWin Champion Series Ergonomic

With the lumbar support and neck pillow, your body maintains some adequate clearing for ventilation. That’s important for warm summer days, as I did not find myself getting warm or having to lean forward like when on a couch to cool my back.

The quality of the build, components, and stitching are top notch, but I don’t love the look of the side plastic moldings for the hinge.

Finally, I like the sky-blue color scheme. While it’s more aggressive than an ugly, black boring office chair, I don’t think it looks silly either.

EWin Champion Series Ergonomic chair is pricey but effective

The biggest obstacle to a high-end gaming chair is certainly the price, and that applies to the Champion Series Ergonomic, coming in just under $300 (when discounted).

Nonetheless, for things like chairs, sofas, and especially beds that you plan to use frequently, you should never go the cheap route. There are differences between a $60 chair that you pick up from Office Max and something that nears the $200 or $300 mark (some designer chairs go even higher). EWin passes the test here for quality, and the company seems to have a solid reputation amongst gamers, often earning top reviews and satisfaction.

For max comfort, style, and longevity, the EWin Champion Series Ergonomic chair is a winner.

For a larger version of this chair see our review of the EWin Flash XL or the similar EWin Racing Calling gaming chair.

Pros:

  • Very comfortable.
  • Durable design, premium materials, and nice stitching.
  • Solid metal frame.
  • Fully adjustable with excellent lumbar support.

Cons:

  • Expensive.
  • Confusing branding between other EWin models.

EWIN CHAMPION SERIES PC GAMING CHAIR (CPD) REVIEW

We spend a lot of time at our computers these days. Whether it’s long drawn out gaming sessions, working, arguing with strangers on the internet, we tend to put most of our attention into the computer itself and neglect the very (essential) component responsible for keeping us, well, at the computer. High end gaming chairs are one of the new trends filling this need among gamers and PC enthusiasts. In the past, high end gaming chars were quite expensive and owning one was unobtainable for many people. Recently, as this trend continues, prices have dropped, and quality has increased based on competition! I believe there are quite a few people out there on the fence about whether owning a gaming chair is the right move currently.

In this review we will be taking a very close look at one such chair: Introducing the EWin Champion Series Gaming Chair. Before we dive into the product itself, let’s take a look at EWin, an OEM manufacturer, and why their chairs stand apart. EWin is a new company founded in 2016 who’s primary focus is in the ergonomic gaming chair scene. They focus heavily on product quality and comfort. They back their quality with a 1 year warranty, and a 2 year warranty on the frame and seating tray. Currently, EWin offers four unique gaming chair series, the Champion Series, Calling Series, Hero Series and Flash Series. Each series has it’s own set of features and price points. Today, let’s take a look at the Champion series and go over each of its many features in depth. Quality, comfort, design, and assembly will be a few of the many items we will be looking at when reviewing this product.

Next up, let’s take a look at how this product was packaged, and assembled.
The Ewing Champion series gaming chair was shipped from the US and arrived to us after just a few days via Fedex. The box that the chair was shipped in was a large and sturdy doubly-ply box with extra card board pieces stuffed on the sides for extra strength. The box itself isn’t overly impressive visually, but seeing as that you’ll be receiving the chair in the mail and not from perusing your local computer hardware store, it probably doesn’t matter a whole lot. Probably best to keep the box design visuals down to a minimum anyways, as to not attract those who might want to keep the chair for themselves. 

Inside the box, we get a sense of the level of care EWin puts into packaging. Each item was completely surrounded by foam tubing and foam sheets. The chair seat and back were also surrounded by foam and placed inside plastic bags. There was nothing tedious about the unpacking process which can sometimes be the case. Packaging was easily removed and did not require any special tools. The overall placement of each component of the Champion Series chair was done in such a way that nothing will move around, or cause damage during shipping.

Included in its own box was all of the hardware pieces needed to construct the chair. Also included were the assembly instructions, a pair of hex-wrenches and a pair of white cloth gloves which the instructions specify should be worn during assembly. We’re not 100% sure why they were needed as there were no sharp parts. Our guess is they’re there to either to protect your hands, “just in case” something goes wrong, or to protect the beautiful finishes on the chair from your grubby gamer fingers. Either way, I thought they were a nice touch. 

 

At first glance, the mounting hardware appears that of excellent quality. Every item feels solid and is free of defects. Even the mounting screws looked like they were of a bit higher quality than what we’ve seen before. I did thing it was nice that even though only two of the hex-screws and plastic screw covers were required, they included extras… just in case. We’ve all been there. 

This review will not be covering the assembly portion in detail. Suffice it to say, assembly is quite simple, although it does require a bit of awkward lifting when attaching the back portion rest to the seat portion. Having a friend to help out is recommended. As a test, we constructed the chair from start to finish without reading the instructions (Overly manly man approved). This was to demonstrate that assembly is quite intuitive and if for whatever reason you either don’t have the manual, or for whatever reason are unable to read the instructions, all is not lost. However, we do recommend following the instructions to ensure proper function and for safety reasons. 

Head on over to the next page for details about the products features, quality and for more detailed images!

Fully assembled, you can see the EWin Champion gaming chair in all its glory. For this particular gaming chair, I really like the color scheme and overall design. The accent colors really make it pop. The racing seat inspired curves do an excellent job providing comfort while not getting in the way when sitting at a desk. 

As far as features go, The EWin Champion gaming chair is definitely well equipped. Almost every component can be adjusted to ensure optimal comfort which will definitely assist in the overall objective of pwning noobs even longer. The back of the chair features two pillows, one for the head and another for the lower back for lumbar support. The lower pillow can be adjusted up or down for optimal placement (or easily removed if desired). These pillows are probably one of my favorite features. They are very soft and provide excellent targeted back and neck support, something my previous budget office chair lacked.

Upper Pillow:

 

Lower Pillow:

The back and bottom seat cushions are advertised as constructed using cold molded foam surrounding a steel metal frame. Built into the frame are elastic bands which provide support and will definitely help in providing comfort years after purchase. In theory, it seems that the bands should help in taking some of the load off of the foam molds, thus reducing general compression wear on the foam. These stretchy bands can be seen from the underside of the bottom seat in the image below:

The back cushion can be reclined forwards and backwards. And WAAAY backwards if you feel like taking a nap! 
A word of caution though: This chair has the ability to recline in two different ways. The first is at the base where the chair swivels, and the other is at the junction between the back and bottom cushions (similar to that of a seat found in a car driver’s seat). When adjusting the recline on the back cushion, first engage the rocking recline lock on the bottom base area. Since the chair has the ability to recline via, the rocking mechanism AND the back cushion recline lever, you may end up falling backwards. Engaging the recline lock which prevents the chair from rocking at the base, proceeded by reclining the back of the chair is the safest way to recline all the way back.

 

The armrests on the Champion can be adjusted in four different ways: Front to back, side to side, up and down, and the front tip can be turned in or out at an angle. EWin has an excellent info graphic depicting this on their product website found HERE. Despite what the look like, the tops of the armrests are actually soft and slightly squishy, not hard plastic like I originally thought. This adds a small level of comfort for those extended gaming sessions. The ability to adjust the armrests to precisely where my arm was level with the desk/mouse, made the overall experience that much better. Overall, they are mounted very securely and I was able to put my full weight on them (185lbs) while bouncing up and down without any give. 

The materials EWin used to wrap the chair appears of good quality and should hold up for a very long time if handled properly. It has a very nice, soft feel to it and repels water nicely. The leather pieces are held together by what looks like heavy duty nylon stitching. The color of the stitching used matches perfectly with the leather piece it is holding together. You can tell there was some malicious attention to detail put in during design and construction of the Champion series chair. Here are some close ups:

 

The base of the Champion features a base consisting of 5 casters in a star pattern and is constructed out of very strong steel. What we found interesting was that on the EWin’s website, they mention that the base is made up from aluminum. Aluminum would have been nice because it would cut down on some of the overall weight. Steel is not a bad material to use because it is very strong, though much heavier than aluminum. Most desk chairs use a plastic base from what I’ve personally experienced, so overall I’m not disappointed over the use of steel. The five casters are pretty standard, plastic and metal construction. They roll and spin nicely, are quiet and feel pretty solid. 

Overall, we are very happy with the overall quality, features and attention to detail of the EWin Champion. Let’s wrap up this section with an interesting video showing the quality (and destruction) of a typical EWin chair vs. the compeition.

The EWin Champion series gaming chair was by far one of the most quality-driven products we’ve had the opportunity to review. EWin’s attention to detail was certainly apparent in the Champion’s internal and external construction. There are a plethora of adjustable options which give the user the ability to find that perfect sweet spot of comfort many other chairs lack. In my case, I work, game and relax at my computer so having a chair that meets every need as far as comfort and style go, to me is just as important as important as having high end IPS gaming monitor. At the time of writing this review, the Champion retails for $369 with a current sale price of $289. (better hurry!) Overall, excellent value especially when you factor in free shipping to anywhere in the US.

The only downside I could find was that the base was constructed out of steel rather than aluminum which was outlined on their website. Aluminum would have shaved off a few pounds while being equally as strong as its steel replacement. Since weight isn’t a huge concern to me personally, I am not bothered by it. A steel base will last just as long and will not bend or flex like plastic bases we see on typical office chairs. 

Overall, if you are in the market for a high end gaming chair that will last for years and not break the bank, we highly recommend the EWin Champion Series gaming chair! Or if you’re not, we could all use a new chair. Factoring in quality, price, durability, and ease of construction, we are pleased to present the Champion with the GND-Tech Diamond Award!

Review: EWin Racing “Calling” Chair

Is it your Calling???

One of the biggest surprises at E3 this year was the explosion of gaming peripheral companies making an appearance, especially in the realm of the gaming chair. One might take for granted the necessity of a “gaming” chair, but for those spending hours in front of a computer or console, the difference is immediate and lasting. And, if like me, you’ve spent any time on YouTube or Twitch, you’ll notice a lot of the personalities you see will be utilizing some form of gaming chair.

EWin, one of the newer entrants in the gaming peripheral space was gracious enough to send us one of their “Calling” series chairs for evaluation and thus far we are very impressed.

Putting this thing together was a relatively simple, although mildly time-consuming. The complete build took around 25-30 minutes, with the majority of time spent turning hex bolts in to place. Anyone that’s had any experience with furniture builds will be relatively comfortable with the process, especially since clear instructions were given in the form of a guide booklet.

At first, the large pile of components can be intimidating, but your confidence will grow once you start combining pieces. A lovely pair of cloth gloves are provided to keep fingerprints from adhering to the synthetic leather surface while also offering light digit protection during some of the more rigorous parts of the assembly process.

At first, it can feel a little weird sitting in a racing-style chair. The form-hugging design could be more likened to that of a sports car than your standard office environment, but once you get used to it, your body will thank you — especially for those sitting at their desks for extended sessions.

The removable cushions that accompany the Calling racing chair provide a surprising amount of support. The larger of the two sits at the base of the chair for lumbar support. Both it, and the smaller neck support pillow are held in place by elastic straps. Although optional, I highly recommend using these. The only complaint I had with the cushions is that the neck support pillow does not retain its position using the included straps.

The “Calling” is one of EWin’s mid-range offerings with adjustable height, armrests and very steep angle of recline. The standout feature of the Calling chair is how well it is made. The synthetic leather provides a soft surface yet enough support for longer sessions. All of the individual components are held together with sturdy straps and bolts.

This is a very well made gaming chair and one you should definitely consider when looking to upgrade your current set up.
