E-Win Racing Champion Series Gaming Chair Review

As someone who spends a large portion of the day working at a computer, comfort is a huge factor for me when it comes to chairs. My chiropractor keeps telling me that my bed, pillow and computer chair are the most important purchases I can make, since that’s where I’m spending the majority of my time. I’ve suffered through cheap, awful chairs in the past, but as someone who suffers from arthritis and chronic pain, I need to take my long-term health into consideration.

My previous chair felt nice when you first sat in it, but over time you would slowly begin to slouch into weird positions that your back would hate you for later. I knew I needed something with lumbar and neck support, so when E-Win Racing contacted me about reviewing one of their chairs, I jumped at the chance. Their Champion series ergonomic gaming office chair looked like exactly what I needed, and so they sent a unit out for me to test.

 

The box that arrived was massive and quite heavy, which I took as a sign that it’s tough and durable. This particular model, CP-BB3F, comes in a variety of colors, but I received the black version, which looks sleek and stylish but not gaudy and ostentatious like some gaming chairs I’ve seen. The chair was well-packed with plenty of bubble wrap and arrived without any damage. The assembly was quite straightforward, and the package even comes with a pair of white gloves to prevent staining the chair during assembly. Top marks for that!

I’ve never sat in a gaming chair before this, so I didn’t know what to expect. When the whole thing was assembled and I took a seat in it for the first time, I was amazed by the level of comfort, and how my posture seemed to almost immediately improve. The two adjustable pillows for the neck and lower back have a nice firmness that helps to take the pressure off of your neck and spine, which meant that I was able to get work done at my desk and play games for longer periods without excessive pain. The breathable material of the cushions worked well to prevent sweating on hot days. The only negative aspect that I’ve found so far is the wheels – they don’t work very well on carpet and it can be hard to move the chair around your space while you’re sitting in it.

 

The Champion has a very roomy feel to it, and its armrests are very adjustable. You can easily turn them outward or inward, as well as farther back or more towards the front. The gas lift allows you to raise and lower the chair about 4 inches, and the back tilt function allows you to tilt the chair back all the way to 180 degrees, which is nice for watching movies and TV or playing on your phone or tablet. I like that it has all of these options so that you’re not just locked into one position for many hours straight. I also really like the high back of the chair and the side cushions that support the upper back and shoulders.

I’ve used the E-Win Champion gaming chair for about two weeks now, and I have to say that I am very impressed by the quality and comfort of this product. I no longer feel as much pain and achiness when working or gaming for long hours, and my chiropractor approves of the lumbar and neck support so that I’m not undoing all of his hard work. The E-Win Champion has a lot of great features, solid build quality and the best comfort I’ve experienced in any chair, gaming or otherwise. The $299 asking price of this model may put some off, but this is a classic example of getting what you pay for. If you think of it as investing in your long-term spine health and your everyday comfort, I say it’s definitely worth the money. Your back will thank you for it.

E-WIN CHAMPION SERIES GAMING CHAIR REVIEW

E-WIN Champion Series Racing Chair

It wasn’t all that long ago that Steve took a look at one of E-Win’s Champion Series PC gaming chairs and now, I’m going back for a look at a slightly different version of the chair turned at least one of our team into a “chair snob”.

Originally an OEM furniture manufacturer, E-Win Racing has been around for a few years now. Since 2016 they’ve been wheeling chairs into our homes and offices that will certainly get you noticed. As Steve pointed out in his review of the all black Champion chair, E-Win’s prior experience is hardly limited to the gaming market, so they really ought to know a few things about keeping people comfy. Four series of chairs are already available to suit a variety of players. These include the Champion, Calling, Hero, and Flash Series.

The Champion line of chairs comes in at $289.00/€249.00/£221 with some mild variation based on design choice. My particular test sample currently retails for £249 on E-Win’s official site. This lands a substantial discount when compared to something like the Noble Epic. While this particular model might be part of the same line as Steve’s previous Champion series review, there are a few noticeable differences.

SPECIFICATION

  • SKU: Champion Series/CP-BOW3D
  • 4D Adjustable Poly Urethane Arm Rests
  • PU Leather
  • Height Adjustable
  • 120MM Class 4 Gas Lift – good up to 330lbs (150 kg)
  • Cold Molding Foam
  • Aluminum 5-star wheelbase
  • Steel chair frame
  • Tilt Lock and Tilt Control Mechanism
  • Lever Operated Back Recliner
  • 20.9in (53cm) wide by 22in (56cm) deep by 36.6in (93cm) high seating
  • Seating adjustable angle 85 degrees to 155 degrees
  • 360-degree swivel
  • Protective caster wheels
  • Neck and lumbar pillows

Getting this monster dumped on your front doorstep is a little intimidating for anybody who’s not had an opportunity to put together a gaming chair before. Thankfully, E-Win impressed right out the box. The Champion Series is packed with a fairly minimal amount of superfluous wrapping. Instead, you’ll find the chair is snugly fitted into the accompanying package, and extremely easy to extract. Anything smaller than the base is boxed away to prevent a side quest to find the correct screw head. Components are correctly parcelled into appropriate packages and E-Win even throw in a pair of rubber tipped gloves to make things a little easier to handle. The forethought E-Win put into the packaging speaks volumes about the way the Champion series is built and makes the assembly as painless as it could be, even for an IKEA-phobe.

After around 15 minutes you should find the E-Win series up and running. Putting the pieces of this chair together is, in my experience, simple enough and the result feels satisfyingly solid. A total of ten hex headed screws are all that is needed, alongside a little lifting, to put complete the Champion series build. The entire frame is intended to hold up to 150KG, so handles my paltry frame of around 60KG without any issue. Putting my own posterior down, this E-Win chair feels roomier than I’ve become accustomed to, even compared to other gaming chairs. The Champion series is not the largest chair on the market. It is not even the biggest seat in E-Win’s own range but it is still sufficiently generous to accommodate my 180cm frame easily. While other furniture sometimes falls a little short when it comes to my back and neck, the E-Win Champion series is tall enough that it always provides a level of functional support, especially when compared to more entry-level options.

The addition of a lumbar support and adjustable neck cushion to the E-Win Champion is another nice touch that elevates the series above my own personal comparisons and entry-level chairs. These cushions are fully adjustable, or removable if you need to readjust them. Cushions might sound like an unnecessary option but they are an addition that I didn’t even know I needed until I had them. The Champion series neck cushion is not the only adjustable area of this gaming chairs The 4D movement of the attached armrests allows gamers to elevate, slide, and rotate the armrests to a silly number of configurations. The rotation, in particular, of these attachments, allows them to do more than just go up and down or forward and back. It gives me real room to get the Champion Gaming chair where I actually want it, rather than settling for where it best fits among my desk clutter.

As if that wasn’t quite enough choice, E-Win has included a reclining feature to the Champion series that allows it to throw back anywhere from 85 to 155 degrees. That’s pretty much enough to sleep on if you so wish. From a functional standpoint, this gives the E-Win room to recline to your own preference and utilizing the reclining feature is as simple as pulling a lever located on the side of the chair. It’s simple and safe. All the moving component are guarded by chair’s side covers and the entire thing feels solid when you kick back. Let’s be clear though, 155 degrees is an extreme and nobody needs a chair that they can sleep on. However, I really could take a quick nap on this if I felt like it.

The E-Win Champion series gaming chair is an impressive piece of kit. The chair’s cold molded foam and multi cushion design create a wrap around that provide support from every direction. The quality of the material and stitching here feel as solid as the steel frame, while the configuration options are excellent. Construction was easy, while some impressive design and packaging features meant that I didn’t waste my day deciphering instructions. All in, and the color aside, E-Win continue to produce a line of chairs that impress for the price. While this might not come with the street cred of a Noble, you’re going to be indoors. If you want a quality gaming chair that will let you kick back in front of your rig then the E-Win Champion series is it.

Pros

  • Solid Construction
  • Very easy to put together
  • 4D armrests are a great addition

Cons

  • Not for tiny spaces
  • Reclining feature is probably a little more than is required
  • This particular color option isn’t going to win any fashion awards

Review: Just in Time for E3 – E-Win Gaming Chair!

It’s the most exciting time of year for gamers as E3 is in full swing. New game announcements, surprises, trailers, and more are taking the internet by storm.

But to get ready for all these excellent new games coming out you might be needing a new gaming chair and Ewin Racing has some great models for you to marathon game in.

Previously, we reviewed another gaming chair from OPSEAT and in many ways the E-win chair we received is very similar.  The designs are a lot alike, the components and set up are all similar. But, to be honest, E-win has a slight edge. It’s more comfortable.

The Championship series chair we have is fully adjustable in nearly any way you can think of. It’s got a steal frame, adjustable height, reclining back, and an uber comfie cold molded high density memory foam chair. I think that’s the key to the comfort. I didn’t even realize it but I had been sitting in it for more than a few hours.

The chair have is orange which I was not so sure about as I’m not the biggest fan of that color but honestly? It looks great. Besides that, there are several different colors to choose from so you’re likely to find whatever suits your fancy.

I really love the chair and definitely recommend checking these offerings out if you are in the market for a new gaming chair. It’s really comfortable, looks great, and is perfect for long term gaming sessions.

Right now for E3, EWIN is running a 20% off special using code E3. Alternatively just click the banner at the upper right and use code PCB for 10% off if the E3 offer has ended.

I really love this chair and have been using it constantly. At the end of the day it’s going to boil down to your preferences, price, design, etc. Go with what you like but to be honest, I really don’t think you can go wrong with any of the E-Win Racing Gaming Chairs.

EWINRACING CHAMPION SERIES GAMING CHAIR REVIEW

QUALITY AND COMFORT.

I can say that in my decade plus of coverage one thing I have never done is review something I put my butt into. Gaming chairs are a dime a dozen. It seems like everyone has one, and until this review I had never used one. I always thought any old office chair would suffice, no reason to pay the extra money for those colorful seats I saw in all the popular streams on Twitch.

Now after spending a couple weeks with the gaming chair I can say I was wrong, extremely wrong. The EwinRacing gaming chair is the most comfortable seat I have used when checking out games, well outside of a full-on lounger of course. It’s design is sleek and its comfort unparalleled. For those of us that can lose hours sitting at a computer desk or in front of a TV know, comfort is king.

I live for comfort!

MSRP: $349.99
MANUFACTURER: EWINRACING
PRICE I’D PAY: $349.99

When my unit arrived it was in a massive box. Unpacking it was simple and each piece laid out perfectly. Everything needed to assemble it is in the box, including a pair of gloves to keep the nasty grease from getting all over my fingers. Trust me this was one of the most helpful things in the box. Grease from chairs like this is absolutely disgusting to clean up. While the tools are there, I decided to use my own set. Assembly took less than 30 minutes and the instructions were very clear. Anyone could assemble this beast.

Now that it was assembled, it was time for the ultimate test. I am a large guy, most chairs only handle a certain amount of weight. The EwinRacing chair boasts a steel frame that supposedly supports over 300lbs, which is more than enough. I put it through the ringer. Sitting in various positions, plopping down into it, it never budged. This is one solid construction.

What I also love is its design. From pictures you can see the chair conforms around the body, making longer sessions more comfortable. I used this chair for a full eight-hour workday and my back thanked me for it. The lower lumbar support pillow is extremely comfortable as well as being adjustable. It really helps for long sessions. The chair can also recline back and forward giving the perfect angle for extended sessions.

Not everything is perfect though. The head rest pillow feels almost useless. I could never find a good spot to rest my neck into it. It was always too close, or too far. The arm rests also have issues. While I love that they are completely adjustable, they feel a little loose in practice. I could adjust their height, angle, and even slide them in and out, but they wobble a little too much. Especially when in comparison to how solid the rest of the design is. At first I thought I had broken them, but after some research I realized I was not the only one having issues.

Another great thing about EwinRacing chairs is their design. They offer them in various designs and colors. I was able to get the red and black design, which is perfect as those are my favorite combination of colors. As I mentioned earlier the way it conforms to my body is also stellar. While I have not had the opportunity to compare this to other gaming chairs, it simply blows my standard office chair out of the water. The comfort is unmatched.

One thing I would like to see added is a leg rest at some point. Nothing would be better than reclining with my feet up after a long work day playing some Overwatch. While it is a nitpick, it is still something I would love to see.

The EwinRacing Gaming Chair is more than worth its price tag. As someone who spends an abundance of time sitting in a chair in front of a screen it has done wonders for my back support. No longer do I get out of my chair reaching for my lower back. The design is great and its construction is super solid. I feel like this chair will last me years and years to come. If you are in the market for a new gaming or office chair I recommend dropping the few extra dollars and picking one up. As I get older I realize that comfort in my favorite hobby, as well as my day-to-day life is imperative.

You can snag one of these chairs at the official EwinRacing site. Be sure to use code “ztgd” to get a 15% discount on purchase!

GOOD
  • Comfortable in long sessions
  • Sturdy design
  • Adjustable settings
  • Looks great
BAD
  • Arm rests are a bit loose
Total Score:8.5

EWin Champion Series Gaming Chair Review – Comfort and Stability

ewin champion series gaming chair review

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

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

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

Adjusts to Fit You

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

ewin champion series gaming chair review 2

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

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

A Hefty Piece of Furniture

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

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

ewin champion series gaming chair review 1

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

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

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

-WIN Hero Series Gaming Chair Review

Intro

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

Let’s go over some of the features:

Features

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

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

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

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

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

EWinRacing Hero Series Gaming Chair Review

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

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

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

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

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

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

All the parts included in the box.

 

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Overall 4.5 /5

The Ewin Calling Series Gaming Chair is as sleek as they come

null

One of the most confusing parts of buying a gaming chair is sifting through all the different technical specifications, types, colors, and intricacies that makeup the market. There are so many options to choose from and they can all blend together and make the variety feel intimidating.

It’s important to choose the right chair, almost as important as the hardware choices when you build a new PC or the customizations you have for your character in Skyrim. This gaming chair will be a second home and you should be certain this one can support your body and play style.

A great option to go with in many cases is the Ewin Racing chair, we’ve been testing the EWin Calling Series Ergonomic Computer Gaming Office Chair and it’s as sleek as they come.

From stylish and comfortable curves that fit to your side to sturdy and reliable armrests that have wide bases for relaxation, the Calling series is a step up from many other chairs including some of Ewin’s other products.

Feel & Fit

The Calling Series, specifically the CLE sku, reigns in some of the features found in the Flash series. It has the same 3D armrests that can adjust up-down, left-right, and forward-back but the movements are far smoother when finding the right place for your elbows. It’s base also also a smoother transition from the edges of the seat to where you sit. The simpler take on the Flash series features actually make the Calling series chair a bit more reliable in terms of subtle adjustments and overall comfort.

It ca depend on what you prefer, but the simple armrests on the Calling series were a welcome change for us after spending several weeks with the flash series. They are stable, firm, and a bit more stylish since they don’t have multiple buttons and switches on several sides. They slide up and down smoothly and have a good range for different heights and postures, and the horizontal movements are done by a simple push.

The Calling Series is similar to the Flash series in many ways The pillows, backrest, height, and backrest angles all feel familiar. They can both sustain a good amount of pressure on the back, just be careful about sudden and heavy movements to one side. The combination wheels and weight of the chair can lead to a fall, although it’s a small concern.

The backrest is straighter, firmer, and more collaborative with the two pillows on the CLE sku as well. It feels like it was meant to work in tandem with the pillows rather than be two different options for use, one with pillows and one without. It made sitting up straight easier and more comfortable.

The biggest test for us is whether or not we can sit back in an odd an exhaustion-caused posture after a long days work and still be comfortable. The result from that test were nothing but positive, even if we try to have the best posture we can most days.

Style & Satisfaction

Most chairs sport that same look with a tall back base, two holes in the backrest for air, two pillows for lower and upper back support, and then a wide base with wings on each side that support leaning to one side or the other. It’s also common for chairs to be two dominant colors, usually something cheery like blue, red, or green alongside a black or white outline.

The Calling Series has most of this with a beautiful splash of white in a few spots on the chair, it makes it stand out among the common two tone nature of other chairs. That flair combined with the usual race car like design of the chair makes it a great addition to any man cave, office, or game room.

We even did a lot of work while setup in our smooth seats our only piece of advice would be to make sure the chair that you get matches your height and weight measurements since armrests on a chair one size to big might hit the edges of your desk instead of slide under them and your feet may be stunted if the chair is too small.

Luckily that’s not an issue since Ewin has multiple options on their site about the size of your chair and we didn’t run into that issue when using the chairs designed to our specific requirements.

We with played various genres and platforms to see how the chair performed in different environments It was easy to cuddle up on the chair and dive into a long session of Octopath Traveler and comfortable enough to spend 30 minutes looting in Fortnite only to be killed by a sniper we didn’t even see (we were comfy enough to just jump back in to try for redemption).

All of those playthroughs were fun and relaxing, better than any couch, bean bag chair, futon, and most other gaming chairs we’ve played with. If you’re looking for a trustworthy options don’t hesitate to go with the Ewin Calling Series of gaming chairs.

The EwinRacing Flash series has everything you need in a gaming chair

A lot of players, especially ones who spend a big part of their day in front of a computer, don’t consider how little support a typical office chair has for the body. If you’re starting to feel a little ache after a long day looking at a screen hunched over in a swivel seat, it might be time to consider an upgrade

Luckily, there are all sorts of options for all sorts of body sizes and shapes, including one of the best– the EWin Racing Flash-XL Series Gaming Chair. It’s a fantastic chair with a large base, high back rest, and an assortment of adjustable features that make it as amiable as it is sturdy. It’s great for streamers, competitors, and casual players alike.

The chair, as the series name would suggest, is meant for larger users with extra space between armrests and taller-than-usual height adjustments that reach 13.4 inches off the ground. And even while it’s perfect for wider reaching players it can suit people of all sizes who want a bit of extra room, just make sure your desk is primed for an upgraded chair.

If your moving from a typical desk chair to this gaming chair the change will feel abrupt, but you’ll settle in quickly after a simple setup process with clear image-clad instruction manual. The number of versatile features including adjustable 4D armrests, 360-degree swivel, 155-degree adjustable backrest, and adjustable base height. The backrest can be layed back to enjoy a more casual experience like Firewatch while it can push your posture up for more focused, action-packed shooters like Overwatch.

It also comes with a support neck pillow and lumbar backrest, one for your lower back and one for your neck with removable straps in case you need extra support in either area. That brings up the question of the EWin Racing Flash-XL Series Gaming Chair’s overall comfortability. The answer is clear here, this chair may actually help with poor posture due to how good it feels to sit upright in, especially after aligning the backrest, height, and armrests to suit specific height and weight measurements.

The most noticeable of those features are the ‘4D’ armrests, something that isn’t as common in gaming chairs that we’ve seen before. Armrests are a constant point of frustration in a lot of chairs since they can often only move up and down, this chair allows the armrests position, angle, and height to be moved to suit the users preferences. The switches to change the position of the armrests are located on different sides of the rests and can be somewhat easy to accidentally hit but are altogether convenient.

After using the chair for a week it would be hard to recall a more comfortable gaming experience, perfect for long hours in Fortnite and PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds, a quick session in Monster Hunter World, or anything in between.

The lumbar backrest is perfect for anyone who has lower back issues and side cushions on the chair give additional support. The chair is so versatile you’ll want to use it for most things like working through your email or having dinner. Although you won’t want to spill and mashed potatoes on this chair, it’s got too much style.

The seat is conveniently cloaked in high quality leather, with memory foam underneath it cushioning the divide between you and the strong metal frame. Now while most chairs with this much versatility may look bulky and while this gaming chair is obviously on the larger side, the combination of slick black and sharp red make it look like the prized possession of a successful streamer.
