E-WIN Gaming Chairs: Game in Luxury and Comfort

EwinRacing Gaming Chair

 

E-Win’s Gaming Chairs are durable and quality built.

 

Video games can feel pretty immersive even without extra accessories, but the peripherals make it even more real. By adding things like steering wheels, rumbling controllers, and gaming chairs, you are really going to get into the game. These extras are great for fooling our senses.

Sure, VR is cool, but the technology isn’t quite good enough to make us completely lose ourselves. Plus, not everyone wants to wear a headset. So these accessories really get us in the game when we are playing console and PC based games.

Game in Luxury and Comfort

Ewin Racing Chair was founded in 2016 after being an OEM office chair manufacturer. Their goal is to put gamers deep in the game by offering quality designed gaming chairs that are ergonomic as well as healthy. They have a wide selection of geek thrones that double as office chairs, as well as accessories like tablet/phone stands that mount onto them. They are perfect for gamers because even though we love to play games for many hours at a time, many of us also have office work to do as well. And that work will be much improved sitting in one of these.

E-WIN Gaming Chairs

E-Win Gaming Chairs will improve your game and your life.

A Durable Gaming Chair and Office Chair in One

One of the best chairs that they offer in our opinion is the E-WIN Champion Series Ergonomic Computer Gaming Office Chair with Pillows. This model has a durable steel frame with high-density memory foam. It also features 4D adjustable armrests with front/back/left/right sliding functions, clockwise and counterclockwise rotations and vertical adjustments.

The material is top grain leather with perforation and diamond pattern stitching for maximum comfort and breathability. It also has height adjustment so that you can raise and lower the seat to your specific needs.

Sometimes you don’t want to be upright and they have you covered there too. The E-WIN Champion Series Ergonomic Computer Gaming Office Chair with Pillows also reclines. Just pull the lever up, lean back and select the perfect angle.

It has a 85-155 degree adjustment. Whether you are playing a more relaxing game or just watching some TV, you are going to be comfortable and completely chill.

You’ll be gaming like a king in any of the chairs that EWIN offers. They are sure to improve your game and your non-gaming life because they are so comfortable and well designed. Check out their selection and find a chair that’s right for you. It’s not often that you find chairs that improve both your work and play.

EwinRacing Flash Series Ergonomic Office Chair with Pillows

In this review we are going to take a look at something a little different, that is still definitely an essential item for those who spend any time working or playing in front of a screen – a comfortable chair. We received the red and black version of the Flash Series ergonomic office chair with pillows from EwinRacing.com, which also has a European presence with the domain EwinRacing.eu.

The Flash Series chair is shown in the promotional image above where we see that while it has the typical profile of an ergonomic chair, it is rather sporty looking. What we can not see is that this particular model is made to support up to 330 pounds and will adjust to accomodate users well over six feet tall. Considering this is considered the “Normal” version of the Flash Series chair, and that there is an “XL” offering, EwinRacing clearly has not forgotten about the larger people in the world when developing their products. Before taking a look at the sample provided for review, let’s take a look at some published data on it, as taken from the official product page on the Ewinracing website.

Key Features:

» Chair Type: Gaming/Office Chair
» Foam Type:High Density Intergrated Foaming
» Foam Density: 60kg/m3
» Frame Color: Black
» Frame Construction: Metal
» Adjustable Armrests: 4D
» Mechanism Type: Multi-functional Tilt
» Tilt Lock: Yes
» Tilt Angle Lock: Yes
» Gas Lift Class: 4
» Chair/Seat Back Style: High-back
» Adjustable Back Angle: 85-155 Degree
» Base Type: 5-star Wide Aluminum Base
» Caster Size & Material: 3″ Caster/PU
» Supports up to 150kg / 330lbs.

The Delivery:

The chair was delivered to my front door in a fairly large box. Overall it appeared to survive the cheap unscathed, which is impressive considering the size and that it weighed in at close to seventy pounds!

Packaging and Accessories:

Opening the box we find that all of the components are well padded, and in case you had not figured out yet – some assembly is required!

Review Image
 

The image above shows that the five star base is placed on top, with plenty of bubble wrap and foam sheeting separating it from the body of the chair underneath. The below left image shows the chair back (with armrests pre-installed) is the next item to be found as we dig our way down, and the below right image shows that below that is the chair base and a cardboard box full of smaller items.

Review Image Review Image
 

Next we see all of the items out of the larger box, almost ready for assembly. First we have to see what is inside that smaller cardboard box.

Review Image
 

The box of accessories includes pictorial assembly instructions, hinge covers for where the back meets the base, all the necessary bolts (plus Allen wrenches to tighten them), five casters, the gas cylinder, the bracket where the gas cylinder meets the base – and so you feel like you’re working on a Bentley – you get a pair of knit gloves!

Review Image Review Image Review Image
 

Assembly:

In this section we will cover the assembly of the chair, but first I want to comment on the quality of the seating surfaces. The base and back are very heavy duty and the first impression given is that they are very well made. The PU leather looks great, the stitching is very well done, and all the foam padding feels great and is very thick. The first step to assembling the EwinRacing Flash Series chair is to bolt the base to the back, which requires the use of the four included Allen head bolts. The two images below show this step, and how it leaves the chair looking a bit unfinished.

Review Image Review Image
 

This unfinished look is only temporary, as there are plastic covers to screw on over the hinges, as shown in the images below. To be honest, these images show this cover on wrong, as the upper piece of plastic should be on the outside of the lower piece, and not tucked in as shown. This step was a little confusing, as the pieces provided didn’t match the pieces shown in the instructions, plus the lower piece of plastic seemed to stick out too far to do it the right way. Never-the-less, I corrected the installation on this step, and both sides were covered, so as to conceal the hinge and assembly hardware. From a distance it looks fine, and the plastic covers function just fine, but in my opinion these pieces don’t meet the same high quality standard the bulk of the chair’s components seem to have. The plastic covers are somewhat flimsy, have a cheap plastic finish, and didn’t fit as cleanly as I would have expected. Not a big deal, but considering how well done the seating surfaces and other areas were executed, I think just a bit more effort on these pieces would have paid off with an even better overall appearance.

Review Image Review Image
 

The next step is to bolt the bracket to the underside of the seat, so that the gas cylinder can be connected and so that you can raise / lower the chair while in use. The four Allen bolts required are already attached to the bottom of the chair, so you remove those, put the bracket in place with the “Front” label facing the front of the chair, and then tighten everything back up.

Review Image Review Image
 

The casters are all then pressed into their holes on the five star base, and the gas cylinder is pressed into the center hole – no tools required.

Review Image
 

The last step is to press the five star base assembly in to the bottom of the chair. It all goes together very snugly, but having a seat on your new chair will help force all of the press fit components together completely.

Review Image Review Image Review Image
 

The full assembled chair looks sharp and very sporty. I think that the Ewin logo embroidered onto three locations on the front of the chair is a bit much, and that the chair would look much nicer if at least two if the three logos were eliminated. The neck and lumbar pillows are the location of two of the chair’s logos and they both come pre-installed, but are merely attached with belts and clips, so they can be removed. Additionally, this belt system allows the pillows to be repositioned while in use, and the tension on the belts helps keep them in place, exactly where you would like them.

 

In Use:

The chair is very comfortable – I have spent hours straight in this chair and have no complaints about how it feels or how adjustable it is. You can raise/lower the total height of the chair with the gas cylinder’s lever, the seat can recline it small increments to an angle that is so laid back you’ll think you might tip over (but I didn’t), the pillows are adjustable, and even the armrests are “4D adjustable” That means they can move up/down, left/right, forward/back, and they can be rotated clockwise/counterclockwise.

The first three adjustments for the armrests are all locked and can only be actuated by depressing a button first. But, the rotation is not locked out and I find that they rotate by accident quite often. For example, using the armrests to get up may make them rotate, and pushing the chair out of the way using the armrest as a handle may make them rotate. The armrests are also not upholstered and have a fairly thin rubbery surface for you to rest on. It is not uncomfortable, but to me the quality does not match the body of the chair. Like the hinge covers, I feel the armrests are executed to a lower standard than the bulk of the chair, and really could be so much nicer.

While I have done well to keep my likeness out of my own reviews for the past 15+ years, I suppose some selfies are useful for reviewing a chair. The main point is that I have 6’2″ tall and about 225 pounds, and while I am not the biggest guy you will meet, there are plenty of places that I just don’t physically fit into – at least not comfortably. I am very comfortable in the EwinRacing Flash Series chair, and it definitely has plenty of room for even larger (taller and wider) users. I can easily find nice positions for the two pillows, and I do like that the armrests can be adjusted in so many planes. As you see me posing below as if I was gaming, know that I have dialed in the chair just to my liking and that I am definitely comfortable.

Review Image Review Image
 

The next two shots are intended to show that if you needed the chair to go higher, it definitely can. I can honestly say it is rare that my feet don’t touch the ground, unless I am sitting on a bar stool – but here my feet are a good two to three inches off the ground with the chair at full height! So, all the people over 6’6″, I’d say the Flash Series chair may be a good choice for you!

Review Image Review Image
 

Eventually, my sidekick got his turn in the chair, and I may not get it back now. At 4 feet and change and just over 50 pounds, he isn’t maxing it out in any way, but he sures does like sitting it all the same! Looking good buddy!

Review Image Review Image
 

Conclusion:
I have never reviewed a chair before, but I have sat in plenty of them, so I would say I am fairly qualified to share my opinion. The EwinRacing Flash Series chair is definitely very comfortable, and overall has a very high build quality. There is plenty of adjustability to it, and the inclusion of both a lumbar and a neck pillow are welcome touches. I also appreciate that it can accommodate such a range of user heights / weights, as I am quite often left with chairs maxed out and still wishing for a little more room! Not with this chair, as it can go so high that my feet are left dangling.

While the quality is high in general, I feel that some components (like the armrests) don’t achieve the same high standard. They are comfortable enough and very functional, but not quite as polished as the seating surfaces and the five star base. My personal opinion is that the Ewin branding on the chair is a bit overdone, as you see their logo embroidered very prominently in three locations on the front of the chair!

 

The Flash Series ergonomic office chair with pillows can be purchased directly from EwinRacing.com or EwinRacing.eu, and in US Dollars the price is a rather lofty $379 (US)! That is quite a price tag for an office chair, but you do not have to pay that much since they currently have a promotion where the code XMAS will take off 25%, bringing the total down to $284 (US). I assume the code XMAS will expire sometime soon after the holidays, but when that happens you should still be able to use code BIGBRUIN, which will take 15% off. Considering that the shipping box weighed in at almost seventy pounds, it is very appealing that they also offer free shipping! $284 is still more than I have paid for any of my previous office chairs, but the Flash Series chair definitely has more to offer and is much more comfortable.

In the end, the EwinRacing Flash Series ergonomic office chair with pillows earns the Bigbruin.com “Recommended” award.

Recommended
Pros:

» Overall very high build quality
» Very comfortable
» Highly adjustable to make sure you can make it suit you
» At 6’2″ and 225lbs, I am nowhere near maxing out the height and weight capabilities of this chair

Cons:

» Some components don’t quite match the overall high quality
» Ewin branding is overdone

EWin Racing Flash Series Racing Chair Review

 

EWin Racing Flash Series Racing Chair Review

It seems that the gaming chair market is growing more crowded by the day, with a number of suppliers eager to offer comfortable furniture that meets our specific needs. However, separating the quality goods from the fly-by-night trash isn’t always easy, particularly when you’re not given much information to go on.

Which is why the approach by EWin Racing is so refreshing. A relative newcomer to the gaming chair scene, the firm started out by making car seats in 2002, before becoming an OEM office chair manufacturer in 2012. It was only logical to combine the two into ergonomic racing chairs for the enthusiast gamer, with a focus on offering high quality at exceptional value. After their first outing at Gamescom 2016, EWin Racing has been retailing directly to gamers in both the US and Europe, with an openness and transparency in sharing how the chairs are made. It’s an approach that’s been quietly winning both plaudits and fans alike.

We’d urge you to digest the review first but, if you like what you see, EWin Racing have also offered an exclusive deal for MMORPG.com readers. Simply enter discount code ‘mmorpg’ to score 15% off this chair, or any of the others in their range. That’s in addition to free shipping to US and EU.

In this review, we’ve focused on EWin Racing’s Flash Series, featuring higher-end features like an aluminum five-star foot and 4-directional armrests, which I’ll dig into shortly. Our sample was from the Normal-size range, but the firm also offers an XL-sized version with the same feature set and specification. For a closer look at the chair in action and the unboxing experience, take a peek at our companion video review below.

Technical Specs

Focusing on the upholstery first, both the backrest and seat are built on a metal frame made from 16mm diameter steel tubing that’s 1.5mm thick and coated to prevent rust. Cushioning is made from cold molded (not cut) memory foam, with the seat built up from three individual pieces, and the backrest from a single molded form. The foam is then supported by wide elastic webbing to ensure there’s no blocks or planks that get in the way of comfort. Wrapping it all up is 1.2mm thick grain-embossed PU leather, with double-stitching used throughout all key seams.

The seat also has a thick steel bar running across the middle to provide strength, and also acts as a mounting point for the baseplate and cylinder. Reassuringly, that gas lift cylinder is a meaty one, measuring 12cm long with a class 4 rating, and capable of supporting 150kg or 330lbs. For weight distribution, the Flash Series chair also comes with an aluminium 5-point star foot and 3” wheels.

In terms of adjustability, the EWin Racing Flash Series includes a recline lever with a tilt of 85 to 155 degrees, and 4-directional armrests that can be moved up/down, in/out, forward/back and rotated. The under-seat lever controls chair height, but also acts as a lock for the built-in tilt, with a tension knob also built into the baseplate to adjust rock resistance. Finally, the included lumbar support and neck brace cushions can be unclipped and moved or removed as desired.

 

Assembly

You can watch our unboxing experience in the companion review video above, but it’s safe to say that the EWin Racing gaming chair is well packed and protected from potential damage in transit. Even so, unpacking the parts yielded a few pleasant surprises alongside the usual suspects we’d expect.

First up, a pair of white assembly gloves were included to protect hands from any cuts or scratches during assembly. It’s something high-end case manufacturers should take note of, especially considering the number of times that an I/O shield or PCI slot has demanded a blood-sacrifice mid-build. The four-page instruction guide is in full colour, with clear steps to follow in plain english.

Crucially, however, this chair is one that can comfortably be built solo in about half an hour or so. Some of the assembly is already done prior to delivery, with only a handful of steps needed to finish the job. All the tools needed are also included, with two Allen keys to fit all the hex bolts used. The trickiest part is locating the seat onto the gas cylinder, but that’s the hardest step. Once complete, the chair had no shakes, rattles, clicks or other problems that would indicate a build issue.

 

Comfort

The cold-molded memory foam and elastic webbing ensure that this is a comfortable, enjoyable gaming chair, while avoiding that feeling of numbness or soreness that comes from sitting on a rigid surface for hours on end. Having a three-piece seat also meant that I didn’t feel insecure, as if I’d roll off the chair or adopt bad posture part-way through gaming. Those PU armrests also have a spongy, rubbery feel, providing give without bruising elbows or forearms.

For me personally, I was also pleased that the included cushions could be unclipped and moved around if needed. Lumbar support tends to be welcome, but the neck brace is typically too low for my taller frame. Thanks to the particular back design, I could unclip the cushion and pull it around the top of the backrest, raising it a few inches and getting it in the perfect spot for my neck. The high number of adjustment options meant that, once it was set up, it’s a chair that I didn’t want to climb out of, and felt absolutely fine for extended gaming sessions.

My only gripes were minor areas of personal preference, and not a big deal at all. I’d like to have had some quilted stitching on the seat of the chair to encourage air circulation and reduce the build-up of sweat, due to the man-made PU leather used. I’d also like the foot to have been slightly larger or slightly further forward, as my centre of gravity felt a little off when trying to rock, but this is probably related to my height as much as anything.

 

Overall

There’s a lot that I like about the Flash Series EWin Racing gaming chair. The chosen components are high quality, and the firm is up-front and transparent about how the chairs are made. Assembly is easy to perform solo, and the white protective gloves are an incredibly welcome touch. It ticks all of my comfort needs, with only a few minor gripes that come down to personal preference.

I think the only additional steps that EWin Racing could offer are in the form of aftercare touches. Gaming chairs are a significant investment, and it would be great if the firm offered the option to buy replacement parts direct from them. Likewise, it would be nice to see aftercare instructions included in the box, although these are available on their website FAQs.

The Flash Series EWin Racing gaming chair retails for approximately $380, €350 or £300 direct from their US or European web sites, and come with free shipping (US and EU only) and a two year warranty. At that mid-tier price point, the chair represents great value for money compared to other models on the market.

To sweeten things even further, EWin Racing have come up with an additional offer especially for us. Simply enter ‘mmorpg’ at the checkout and get 15% off the Flash Series chair, or any of the others in their range. That moves it from being great value to a very keen price indeed.

 

Ultimately, however, EWin Racing have certainly surprised us with their commitment to high quality and good value, and it clearly shows in the Flash Series chair. As the firm moves out of the OEM shadows and reaches out to gamers directly, it’s going to be interesting to watch how EWin Racing shakes up the market.

EWin Racing Flash Series XL Gaming Chair Review

INTRODUCTION

 

ewin racing flash xla

Just like with most gaming peripherals like keyboards, mice, pads, headsets and even LCD screens ergonomic bucket chairs have also flooded the market (perhaps a little faster than we were expecting). However although there are countless models for people to choose from that have different shapes, features and colors there aren’t that many actually aimed towards larger people and that’s not really hard to tell since out of our 12 gaming chair reviews only 2 are really aimed towards such consumers. Now as many of you are well aware currently most gaming peripherals manufacturers have released such products and although not all of them actually make their very own gaming chairs (thank OEM manufacturers for that) it still would be best if such models were not as hard to come across. EWin Racing may not be the very first gaming chair manufacturer to come in mind but they offer an entire line of gaming chairs designed to cater to the needs of larger people called the Flash Series XL and with us we have their brand new black and red 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 www.ewinracing.com for more information on our products.

What makes the Flash Series XL stand out from most gaming chairs in the market today is its target audience since its frame was designed for people up to 2 meters tall and 300Kg heavy (89cm tall backrest with 57cm wide seat). Unfortunately although the Flash Series XL line does feature a reinforced steel frame (15mm in thickness) since it uses the same class-4 gaslift as with the rest of their models the maximum supported weight (seat/backrest included) is actually no more than 150Kg. Other features include a PU leather cover, foam density of up to 60Kg/M3 (obviously for the seat), 4 directional adjustable armrests (height/position/orientation), removable head and lumbar pillows, 70mm nylon caster wheels (EWin says 3 inch ones but these are actually 70mm and not 75mm in diameter), backrest adjustment (up to 155-160 degrees) and the somewhat classic tilt/rocking (up to 12 degrees) and height adjustment mechanism we find with most desk chairs.

SPECIFICATIONS AND FEATURES

PACKAGING AND CONTENTS

 

 

 

 

 

 

ewin racing flash xl 1t

EWin Racing ships the Flash XL gaming chair inside a large box that has their logo on all sides.

 

 

The chair parts were packed extremely well as you can see from the above picture.

 

 

The 5-star aluminum base was placed at the top of the box so we took that out first followed by the backrest which has both removable pillows attached.

 

 

The large seat was next (the 4D armrests are already attached).

 

 

Next we took out the five 70mm caster wheels, instructions manual, large size gloves, two Alen keys, three small round taps and the two plastic side covers.

 

 

EWin packs the typical butterfly tilt/rocking and height adjustment mechanism with the Flash Series XL so that came out next along with 3 Allen screws and the class-4 gaslift with its plastic cover.

ASSEMBLY

 

 

 

 

 

 

ewin racing flash xl 8t

Once again we started assembly of the chair by mounting the 70mm caster wheels to the 5-star aluminum base.

 

 

It’s the 3rd time we’ve received a gaming chair with large caster wheels.

 

 

Placing the class-4 gaslift with its plastic cover on the 5-star base was the next step.

 

 


The base of the seat has a total of three green elastic bands for increased support.

 

 

As you can all see each 4D armrest is attached to the seat with no less than 4 Allen screws.

 

 

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

 

 

To mount the backrest onto the seat you will have to use 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.

 

 

The upper body is now complete and I have to admit that it looks very nice.

 

FINISHED LOOKS

 

ewin racing flash xl 19t

The Flash Series XL gaming chair looks very good and is actually among the top 3 chairs to arrive in our lab with as much foam density.

 

 

The PU leather used may not compete with the one used in the X-Comfort by Thermaltake or with the one of the EPIC by Noblechairs but it’s still very good.

 

 


The company logo is placed on both the head and lumbar pillows.

 

 


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 diagonally to suit your style.

 

 

This is the rear of the Flash Series XL gaming chair.

 

 

EWin uses a head pillow that features a clip, not something we see a lot.

 

 

Although the backrest doesn’t fall all the way (180 degrees) still it does fall up to 155-160 degrees and thanks to the good amount of padding it’s very comfortable.

 

CONCLUSION

 

 

ewin racing flash xlb

We first heard of EWin Racing quite recently but after checking their Flash Series XL gaming chair we have a pretty good idea as to why they’ve been the OEM go to manufacturer by some popular gaming peripheral companies. You see the Flash Series XL is not only one of the two largest gaming chairs to ever reach our lab but it also features a very good level of quality, plenty of padding (foam density), large caster wheels, reinforced steel frame, 4D adjustable armrests and its backrest can drop up to 155-160 degrees. Unfortunately by using the classic butterfly tilt/rocking mechanism the chair doesn’t feel as sturdy as it would had EWin Racing used the Z-support tilt/rocking mechanism found in many high-end models so we really hope they will eventually start using that as well. Oh and did we mention that the Flash XL series is available in several different colors and designs? Check the above picture for some of them.
EWin Racing claims that their chairs are affordable compared to their competition but after checking the price tag of the Flash Series XL Gaming Chair it doesn’t seem to be quite right (some of their other models however are quite affordable). To be more specific you can currently get the Flash Series XL model for USD429 inside the USA (EWin USA) and 389Euros inside the EU (EWin EU) a price tag which is not that far off from let’s say that of the X-Comfort by Thermaltake. The good news is that the Flash Series XL is taller, wider and has more padding than most models we’ve received so far thus it’s more ideal for large people so at least for them this is the obvious way to go. Overall thanks to its size, foam density and features the Flash Series XL gaming chair is actually a very good choice for large people which is why it gets our Golden Award.

EWin Hero Series HRD Gaming Chair Review

Overview

HardwarePeripherals

Manufacturer

Price at time of Review$359

WHAT WE LIKED:

High density memory foam, more than average height adjustment, slim lumbar pillow, sturdy metal frame and base, 155 degree recline, well packaged and easily assembled.

WHAT WE DISLIKED:

Price is a little steep, embroidery frays over time, plastic bar hits your head when fully reclined without pillows, this model lacks additional armrest adjustments,

BOTTOM LINE:

A well designed chair with negligible faults, but the price is currently at a place where you may be better off with either a less expensive model with similar features or pay a little more for an upgrade.

Introduction

Chairs! Whether you’re being a cubicle jockey or gaming until your butt goes numb, a good chair goes a long way. Now EWinRacing has thrown their hat in the pool of gaming chairs, an analogy that has gotten away from me. Have they made the most epicurean masterpiece to which one should perch their posterior? Have they simply made a good looking chair? Let us find out. To the REVIEW! After these messages:

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. Ever more, in order to bring you a healthier working 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.

If you were having a hard time reading that, you are not alone. Moving on. Also, you can check out the video review if you enjoy watching the miseries of trying to open a box without cutting the tape!

Unboxing and Assembly

I gently place the box on the ground. With swift determination I flip out my trusty knife to open the box. But what is this!? “Do Not Cut” written beneath a warning of attention. Undeterred, my Christmas Day repertoire of exhuming skills unleash upon the cardboard prison… and wow is there a lot of tape.

I’m assuming that “Do Not Cut” is mostly placed in effort to prevent someone from opening it with the knife pointed directly downward. It wouldn’t have mattered, however, as the first object in the upright position is the steel five point base. In the instance you are opening this box with a Crocodile Dundee knife, you knew what you were getting into. The chair back cushioned the center while the base and box of parts were cleverly positioned at the bottom. Being the lowest layer wasn’t the clever part so much as the box of smaller parts was pushing the seat against the opposite side of the box.

The other two sides of the box were supported by the armrests. Why is any of this important? I found out last time I opened one of these chairs that anything fragile really shouldn’t be in contact with any side of the box. Nothing was touching the sides of the box that couldn’t take a hit. The plastic facades on the hinge of the chair are buffered from the sides of the box by the armrests. Worst case scenario would be someone hitting the exact location of the facades on the bottom of the box or someone dropping it fiercely, but even then those hinge covers have at least a centimeter between them and the cardboard surface because of the seat. A dumb thing to be excited about and I don’t regret it. People need to know they should test their shipping containers.

If I had a criticism with packaging, it would probably be the location of the instructions. While the small part box is the obvious choice, taking inventory of the parts would be easier if you had the list when you opened the box. Along with the invoice of parts is a checklist of warnings and precautionary steps to take before assembly. Again, something we might want to know before we start taking parts out.

Assembly was simple enough. I appreciate that the majority of the screws were in the holes that you were going to place them already. Unscrew the back rest bolts, place on seat, put the bolts back in. Unscrew four base screws, place metal chair lift bracket, put the screws back in. There were only two, though it said there should be three, screws that came in a bag. No screwdrivers were needed, either. All of the screws had hex heads that you placed with the included Allen wrenches. The only difficult part of the build was the same problem with every gaming chair: attaching the seat and the back rest together. Maybe I need to assemble more chairs because that step always gets me. I feel like that is the one step that might require two people. I swear I’m doing it wrong every time.

Weirdest included item? Microfiber gloves.

As Josh pointed out, “I would love some microfiber gloves for handling these full glass PC cases, but why do you need them with a chair?” Are you displaying the chair for an event? You’ll probably want those gloves to keep all the greasy hand stains off of it. Are you going to use the chair? You’ll probably get greasy hand stains on it. Or at least I will. Doritos, tacos, sweaty game palms, head, back, french fries, and every greasy thing you can imagine will eventually touch this chair. Those stains also don’t tend to linger. Much like purposefully making a scratch on a metal plated apple device, assume people will have their grimy hands on your chair.

In the end, casters are still awkward to push down and it is awfully nice to sit in any chair after you assemble it.

The Sitting Experience

Is there some sort of butt comfort metric to compare how much better one chair feels compared to another? E-Win’s chair is a steel frame covered in cold molding, high density memory foam. Does this mean that the chair will never form to your body? I don’t know, I doubt I can wait long enough for the answer before posting the review. It is less stiff than other gaming chairs in the seat area.

My only issue with the seat is that it does not reach the back of my knee, something that I never used to have but now feels noticeable.

Thigh wings keep your legs from moving too far out of the proper ergonomic range (so far as I’m concerned, that is the proper name now). The equivalent foam rails that come out from the backrest is probably my favorite design feature. It both keeps the body’s mid section in place while also contouring with the lumbar pillow when it’s attached. Most gaming chairs are built less for all-around comfort than intentional ergonomics. Those body rails lining the edges are intended to keep your body from leaning or positioning your legs in improper ways. As a result of the design, if you sit cross legged, slumped to one elbow, or hunched forward it will likely seem awkward and uncomfortable. If you sit with all of your necessary joints at 90 degrees and sitting upright then no worries, marathon away.

Something I’d like to point out if you are in the market for this chair is the difference between the Hero Series HRD and HRC. The HRD has 2D armrests. That’s a fancy way of saying it goes up and down. Technically if you loosen the screws for the armrest you can move them left and right a smidge. The HRC has the fancy 4D armrests that rotate, shift back and forth, in and out, break dance, pop a wheely, you get the gist.

Personally, the 2D is plenty as the left and right adjustment can bring them inward a little more. The default armrest distance feels a little far for me. It works as a resting position to have my arms spread out but keyboard and controller related tasks require your arms to be in a little more. If you have broad shoulders and are built like a Battletoad, you can dismiss my opinion.

Reclining with gaming chairs is a little out of control. I understand throwing the seat back to relax, I do! Full 180 degree recline is more terrifying than comfortable. To my relief, the Hero Series E-Win stops around 155 degrees. That extra 25 degrees you’re not bent backwards goes a long ways towards being able to get back up without assistance. Also, while we are talking about reclining, I wouldn’t suggest leaning all the way back if you do not have the head pillow on.

Throwing yourself back at an angle of around 125-135 degrees will cause your head to collide with a stiff piece of plastic. I’ll talk a little more about that later. Headrest wise, it feels good. A non critical issue is if you squeeze the headrest, it sounds like crinkling. As if to fill some additional space someone stuffed it with newspaper. It doesn’t effect the feel of the headrest and you won’t notice the sound unless you squish it by hand but I thought it was interesting.

My favorite part of this chair is how hilariously high the vertical lift goes. At full height, my feet are dangling. Without shoes I feel like a kid in an adult seat.

I’m 6′ tall, so I typically only have this problem with bar stools. When I built a desk into my wall, I had made it high enough that I could get an old office chair’s arms under it. The issue afterwards was being unable to set my armrests high enough to be level with the desk so it was seamlessly flat to the keyboard and mouse. Now I can go above and beyond what I need. You may not experience this if you are all legs and no torso, in which case I apologize for misleading you.

Head and Lumbar Pillows

My mantra involving gaming chair pillows is, “all gaming chairs need a head pillow, lumbar should be used as needed.” There’s likely a more flowery way to say that, let’s call it a work in progress. The headrest and pillows all have the E-Win logo embroidered on them. As I’ve noticed in the past, anything embroidered that makes repeated contact with the body is likely to unravel a bit. Embroidery on cloth and other fabric materials don’t tend to have this problem, but the faux leather tends to not handle it as well.

Of the chairs I’ve used, the Hero Series E-Win Gaming chair has my favorite lumbar pillow. Other than fitting into the design of the chair, the pillow has a thinner profile and feels more natural to keep it attached. But like every gaming chair, the lumbar pillow pushes you off the chair a bit.

 

The issue is only exaggerated by the distance from the edge of the chair to the back of my knee. If you haven’t noticed, gaming chairs have their center of gravity towards the back of the chair so you can lean back safely.

Any forward weight tips the chair. The lumbar pillow can push you precariously close to the point of balance failure. Still, there’s times where you might want the lumbar pillow for lower back pain. I’m not saying you can’t sit on the chair with it, so much as asking you to be mindful of the chair’s center of gravity.

The position of the head pillow, as it comes in the box and on the picture on the website, is not a good way to use the pillow. Out of the box, the head pillow strap is wrapped around the lumbar pillow straps.

This is fine if you have the lumbar pillow attached, no problems. What if you don’t want the lumbar pillow? If you attempt to use the pillow through the plastic slot in the chair, it will just fall out because it is a full horizontal opening.

I’m curious what advantage there is to having a full horizontal slit as opposed to having only two holes to thread the straps through. Attaching the lumbar pillow to the back side of the chair works.

The straps still exist to attach the pillow. Honestly, it still isn’t at the best position to use it as the pillow ends up in the upper back.

 

I’ve found these pillows work best when in the neck area. In order to get the pillow up to neck area, you have to pull it up and lean back quickly into it. How do you avoid all of this mess of logistics?

Simple, give up on attaching it to the lumbar straps and pull it over the top of the headrest. Seems like that is what E-Win concluded as well, given the picture of their Hero Series HRC. My worry was over stretching the strap so it would no longer attach to the lumbar pillow.

Yes, it will over stretch, but attaching it to the lumbar pillow was inefficient anyway. Just commit.

Conclusion

This gaming chair comes in at $359, a price on the precipice of affordable and luxury. What sets the chair apart is its memory foam layer, additional backrest lumbar support/stability, and vertical height. There are several chairs $100 cheaper that also have a steel frame, lumbar and head pillows, 2d armrests, full recline, and metal five point base. With the exception of the awkward plastic bar across the headrest, there is nothing wrong with the design. My only hesitation is that the price is a little steep for the introductory gaming chair. I would say though, that if you could save around $60 it would be a perfect price, so not a huge gap. I’m going to go ahead and give this a Pure Overclock Great Hardware Award.
